"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

I have tried not to become invested in Hilary Clinton's presidential nomination race. It's so tense and 
so hard.

She won  the Iowa caucus according to the rules. Now it's argued she lost and Senator Bernie Sanders the real winner. He wants to "examine the paperwork" like he can't deal with the hard fact. 

The word moral enters the picture.

On the Republican side the Trump, in second-place, claims the to be the real winner.with no less bombast than before. And no more ability to deal with reality than Bernie Sanders. 

The real Republican winner did indeed have a Howard Dean moment. 

In less than reverential terms  he bawled out to  crowd;  "God Bless Iowa" .

Who calls upon the deity to bless the greatest number of votes  in a truly unholy process.

CNN has a frequent guest named Hugh Hewlettt. He has a show iof his own called....Hugh Hewlett's Show. 

Mr. Hewlett is an avowed admirer of the Trump genius. 

Last night, he looked directly into the camera and made a statement against Hilary that made my skin crawl. 

Don Lemon, the CNN host made a feeble attempt to discount the statement. 

I wish I hadn't seen that.  I'll be so glad when it's over. 

Except what will I do then for excitement ?

I have been wondering the same thing - what will I do if the Americans stop producing such garbage for my edification.
ut the home front is not too shabby either - there is an article in the Auroran that makes it look like council
has " discovered " that Mavrinac is not needed as parkland. How big a " I told you so " is that for you ?

The only eminently qualified presidential candidate from either party is Hillary Clinton.

The rest are all wackos, shysters and religious zealots - a good description of most Americans, especially when you throw in assault weapons.

22:02 - don't listen to her voice, read what she has to say.

Do you switch to Fox? Another group of wackos.

I guess Trump will not be buying that farm in Iowa after all. Pshaw !
He does seem to think he can BUY anything. After being beaten in the Scottish courts over the wind generators off his
golf course, he has now bought a course in Ireland.
