A Veiw From the Cheap Seats

Bernie's Toast
After Madam Cankles has seemingly coughed and barked her way to the lead and ready to mount the Democrat Party Mantle and hump it all the way to the White House, Bernie Sanders is basically toast......

Sanders is planning to lay off “hundreds” of
campaign staffers across the country 
"After Tuesdays drubbing in the latest round of Democratic party primaries, the great Bernie Sanders socialist revolution is officially on life support. Following a comment from Democrat Senate capo Harry Reid that there was no path to the nomination for Sanders, the pressure is going to be turned up on the old goat to give up the ghost and drop out of the race.
It’s quite clear that the sell by date for the Sanders campaign has now passed and after losing all of the votes last night with the exception of Rhode Island the fat lady is now humming as she gets closer to bursting into song. 
The increasingly desperate codger is grasping at anything to save him as he gets slowly sucked under by the quicksand of history, like floating the idea of recruiting progressive heroine Elizabeth Warren as his running mate."- (READ MORE)
Reports today say Bernie is ready to lay off hundreds of campaign staff. As the old hunting saying goes: it’s time to call in the dogs and piss on the fire, Bernie

Trump Gets All Foreign Policy and Stuff
Dressed with the trappings of gravitas, Trumps Foreign Policy speech was held at the stately Mayflower Hotel (after a last-minute location change blamed on “overwhelming interest” - from the media) and was presided over by Zalmay Khalilzad, a former U.S. ambassador to Afghanistan and Iraq. 
Gaul is supposed to be a big deal, but it’s
nothing. Very disappointing. Terrible hotels. 

Trump used a teleprompter despite the fact that he has mercilessly mocked his rivals for doing the same, saying at one point: “If you’re running for president you shouldn’t be allowed to use a teleprompter.”

I read the text of Trumps Speech. (I did liked the complete sentences) But all in all, it was a bunch of lines from other Trump speeches forced into an outline by some poor speech writer.  I learned nothing new, except that when a text of his usual blather is shoved in front of him, he can deliver it with only minimal digressions into calling things "great", "wonderful" and "tremendous". And by some miracle, the only wall he mentioned was the Berlin one. (really no need, this was not a rally of rabid supporters to lather up) But Trump did give an indication of believing what he was saying. The Big Question left is whether Trump is too big of a flake to live up to executing his own speech once in office.

Get ready to start hearing from the media about how presidential he is, at least until the next rally where he pulls down his pants, waves his dick around, and the crap gets beat out of someone.
