We’re leaving for Krakow tomorrow early in the morning. When Helena told me 5 o’clock I was thinking she meant 5 o’clock in the afternoon and here it’s after midnight she tells me, no, we’ve got to be up in a few hours.
So, for the next couple of days this is likely to be more of a travel blog than my usual political rants, which I know most people prefer. Those of us who like to argue politics, like those of us who are interested in writing poetry, tend to forget that the vast majority of people care more about the weather, and that’s not because they really care about the weather, either, they spend all their time indoors.
But, Donna Brazile said something seriously stupid today, and since I really don’t like Donna Brazile (chairman of the DNC between Wasserman – Schultz and Perez, a mere place holder between placeholders, and the woman who gave Hillary Clinton the debate questions in advance) I’m going to take this opportunity to make fun of her for it.
I don’t know what the original question was, undoubtedly something about Russia, because that’s all Donna Brazile and her friends ever talk about, and in her reply she said ‘the communists.’ When the questioner pointed out that Russia hasn’t been communist for quite some time, like more than two decades, she said something like “doesn’t matter, they don’t call it the KGB any more, either.”
Now, there is some reason for those in the West to be alarmed at Russia – their obvious agression against Ukraine, their sneakily moving the Georgia border a little further into Georgia in the middle of the damned night, stuff like that, but being confused about what kind of government they have, well, that’s just stupid.
If they are still communists, Donna, why do they have so many billionaires who keep coming to America to make real estate deals with guys like Trump?
It’s not really a big deal. Donna Brazile is not actually in any position of importance at the moment. And I hope she never is. That’s why I’m writing this.
