QT loud guy at the end of the bar update

Donald Trump
Donald Trump reminding us what he would bring to the presidency and foreign policy:
“I’m a dealmaker. I make the great deals.”
To review:
Trump’s best deal was his birth to a father worth several hundreds of millions of dollars.
His other deals over the decades have resulted in:
+ Four bankruptcies.
+ Investment returns that lagged the behind the stock market.
Where is that laughter coming from?
Can it be coming all the way from China?

Headlines in the news

News Headline: “What will happen when VP stops ‘Biden’ his time?”
News Headline: “Sanders’ campaign could ‘Bern out’ in the Palmetto State.”
Stop it.
Stop it now.

QT Super Bowl L countdown updVIII

Super Bowl Homeless
News Headline: “NFL: It’s ‘Super Bowl 50,’ not ‘Super Bowl L.’ ”
But then will come Super Bowl LI.
In any event, San Francisco’s mayor has announced that unsightly homeless persons anywhere near Super Bowl 50 have about CLV days to clear out.
Some things don’t change.

In other news. . . .

Trump Movement
News Headline:
“Donald Trump: ‘This is a movement.’ ”
News Headline: “Understanding irritable bowel syndrome.”
The two stories seemed to go together, for some reason.

This just in. . . .

Palin and Trump
News Headline: “Sarah Palin will interview Donald Trump tonight.”
News Headline: “There may be infinite universes–and infinite versions of you.”
So take comfort.
Somewhere there may be a you who may not have to watch a Sarah Palin interview
a Donald Trump.

Vows in the news

Casey Davis, Kim Davis
News Headline: “Kentucky clerk vows to die for the right to oppose gay marriage.”
So some problems do solve themselves.

From Poor QT’s Almanack

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, who wrote, “Life is a disease of matter,” was born 266 years ago on the 28th day of National Brownies at Brunch Month.

One last dog day of summer

Buddy 2
As this is National Dog Day, QT has asked its dog, Buddy the Wonder Dog, so named because  the neighbors wonder about him, for his preference in the presidential race.
No response.
But when asked to characterize the upcoming campaign, he answered:
Buddy the Wonder Dog’s predecessor, by the way, was named Pablo, after Picasso, because having a dog is a good idea in the abstract.

Casting call

Transgender Actors
News Headline: “Wanted: Transgender actors for Hollywood, little experience required.”
Too many transgender roles and not enough transgender actors.
Hollywood needs to solve this shortage.
Otherwise, we’ll have to watch actors pretending they’re somebody they’re not.

The Making of the President 2016nado!

Ku KIlux Klan
News Headline: “Donald Trump wins backing of former grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan.”
As we continue efforts to pinpoint Trump’s key demographic.
