"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 tried and found it impossible to avoid the saga of America's selection of a President. The  last couple of days of the Democratic Convention however made the news slightly more balanced and palatable. 

Republican gyrations to conceal dismay over the contortions of their candidate has not been without a Cirque De Soleil element. Except all know beforehand the pyramid will collapse in a tangle of arms and legs and bullet -shaped heads. 

Speaking of heads....how could a man of seventy, hair floating around his aging face, like a giant tease of orange cotton candy, be taken seriously as a candidate for any office ? 

Today in Wisconsin, the mop has been trimmed and colour toned down... he has reversed himself ...and endorsed Republicans, Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, Senior Senator from Arizona ,John McCain and Senator Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, just days after he said he wouldn't. 

Then there's his trophy wife, younger than Springtime , known by hundreds of thousands through the magic eye of a camera,who presents on television, a plagiarized speech from the current First Lady of the Nation. 

Only in America ,you say. Well, Thank the Good Lord  for that. 

Today at noontime a retired Admiral, they got a million of 'em, explained how a plane with a cargo of money taken from Iran fifty years ago , being returned to Iran  in foreign currency can be interpreted as "ransom" paid by the United States. 

" Iranians think it is" he said "and so,  it is". That's what he said. I kid you not. 

Ordinarily, it would be a puzzle why a retired American Admiral of the Brave Navee, would present as an expert on either side of the question . 

Why a retired American Admiral feels competent to offer an opinion on what modern Iranians think is a complete and utter mystery.

The answer my friends, is blowing in the wind. 

 CNN's questions are more puzzling than  answers. They certainly keep a lot of people employed. 

They  give Trump surrogates all the time they want  to abuse Hillary . 

They cut Hillary surrogates off from defense of their candidate before they finish their answers..

Like they're  afraid of the bellicose billionaire. 

And that's the biggest mystery of all.

Maureen Dowd has a great article " Crazy About the Presidency ' . She writes so well when she is angry.

CNN is an ad agency in the employ of the GOP.

What else do you expect?

And Warren Buffet and Michael Bloomberg are running interference for Hillary.
