It's all rather distressing.

Trump is, as of right now, the presumptive Republican nominee.

All I know and all I care about right now is getting our nominee elected to the Office of President of the United States.

Cruz Miss-ile

It's Trump

Good gawd.... it's an embarrassment for our nation.

In case you missed it, Trump won Indiana yesterday, prompting Ted Cruz to drop out. Kasich is staying until the bitter end. That's cute.

Good Evening.

Yes, you read that right. Tuesday mornings are such a whirlwind around the TriSec compound, that AAV is often a slap-dash afterthought. (I hope it didn't show too badly.)

So trying something new...I've got a glass of wine and an hour. Maybe I'll be more thoughtful on a Monday night.

Well, this is awkward.

Right there is a possible presidential ticket... chilling, right?

In the meantime, we have 6 more months until we say goodbye to this man...

Whats the Big Deal?
Author: velveeta jones    Date: 05/01/2016 16:15:34

Velveeta is at a loss as to why this new "bathroom law" in the great state of North Carolina is so controversial. To put it simply, all the law says is that if you have a dangly betwixt you upper thighs you belong in the room labeled "Gentlemen" and if you are devoid of said appendage then you belong in the one with a stick figure wearing a proper lady dress. How is this so difficult?

We're week one "After Prince", and because Mr. Nelson was so reclusive and secretive, there's been rumors and innuendo swirling around for every day this week.

Circling the Bowl
Author: BobR    Date: 04/27/2016 10:45:04

It's just about at end (apologies to states with primaries in Mid-May to June). This presidential campaign - which seemingly began immediately after President Obama was reelected in 2012 - has been steaming towards what seems to be the inevitable final showdown: Donald Trump -vs- Hillary Clinton.

Trump as the Republican candidate was not what anyone predicted, and not what anyone wanted. He's a joke, a showman, a used-car salesman, an intellectual fraud (which is saying a lot). Republic primary voters saw their clown car full of single-issue extremists and dullards, and decided to go all-in with the anti-politician candidate. Who better to be president than someone who doesn't know the first thing about how government actually works?

On the Democratic side, it started out interesting. Clinton was the assumed candidate, but the question was: who would run against her? Senator Bernie Sanders and Governor Martin O'Malley decided to give it a shot. O'Malley was definitely on the edges - he really had no national profile. Sanders was an odd choice as well - not a member of the Democratic party, he decided to run as one anyway. Most Dems welcomed him despite that as a foil to the perceived coronation of Clinton. It was certainly questionable how well he would be able to do as an "outsider" to the party (although very much an insider with regards to politics and the government). He has done exceedingly well.

Good Morning.

We'll head right to Syria this morning. While the President continues to deny that we're sending "ground troops" to Syria, we are sending "advisors", about 250 soldiers to "support local forces" fighting ISIL. And so another cycle begins.
