The Making of the President 2020nado!

News Headline: “Poll: Joe Biden is the early 2020 frontrunner.”
It’s started.

11 days until Christmas

News Headline: “Lawyer sues to stop Christmas tunes playing 16 hours a day.”
News Headline: “Global warming is causing reindeer to shrink.”
Ho, Ho, Ho!

From the depths of. . . .

From Poor QT’s Almanack

Beware the ides of National Stress-Free Family Holidays Month.

QT loud guy at the end of the bar update

News Headline (2015):  ‘I’m, like, a really smart person’: Donald Trump exults in outsider status.”
News Headline (2016): “Trump explains skipped intel briefings: ‘I’m, like, a smart person.’ ”
QT Abridged Too Far Dictionary of the English Language:
smart adj. 1. having or showing intelligence. 2. bright. 3. a trait not typically mentioned in self-description by those who actually are. 4. but often by  those who aren’t particularly.

In other news. . . .

News Headline: “Study: Half of people ‘remember’ events that never happened.”
And the other half voted for Hillary Clinton.

Comcast’s  list of  2016 “Holiday Movies” includes “Die Hard with a Vengeance” and “The Dark Knight Rises.”
Ho, Ho, Ho!

And remember the Valero Alamo Bowl


News Headline:
“Where does the Belk Bowl rank among the 40 bowls?”
The Belk Department Stores Bowl, formerly the Continental Tire Bowl, ranks higher than the San Diego Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl.
And it ranks higher than  the Gildan Activewear New Mexico Bowl.
But it ranks below the Franklin American Mortgage Music City  Bowl.
So we need to contain our bowl excitement.

The art of the suspicious deal

News Headline: “CIA says Russia intervened to help Trump win election.”
News Headline: “Trump eyes Russia-friendly CEO exec for secretary of state.
News Headline: “Putin says he’s ready to cooperate with Trump.”
