On November 3rd…

Half of the people who vote for Donald Trump will be voting for him because although they despise and distrust the Republican Party establishment behind him, they believe Trump himself is a strong enough man to resist that establishment’s duplicitous machinations. The other half of Trump’s voters will be people who gain comfort and reassurance from the thought that the party establishment is...

Random Electoral Observations

Donald Trump and Joe Biden both seem to have proportionally small hands, although Trump’s are obviously the smaller, as one can see from any photo of him together with his wife, whose hands appear considerably longer than his. Nevertheless, both men are famous for being incapable of keeping their little hands to themselves.  That’s shorthand, if you will, for the basic problem of...

Disasters All Around

According to a headline from The Hill, “Biden slams Trump for calling Fauci a ‘disaster.’” On its face, Biden’s “slam” seems fair. After all, who is the bigger disaster, the government apparatchik who has spent the past eight months on a personal glory tour, deliberately stoking mass panic and actively promoting tangible tyranny for the sake of aggrandizing his own little ego, or...

Joke of the Day (Manly Version)

The Washington Post, in perhaps the funniest framing of an election in the history of journalism, presents an analysis of the Trump-Biden presidential race as a clash of two visions of masculinity. I know, I know, and I apologize if you happened to read that sentence with your mouth full. First, in full (and admittedly fair) mockery mode, the Post, a global communist...

Missing Person’s Report

It has been a few days since I posted anything here in Limbo, and I suspect a few of you have even noticed this absence, and perhaps begun to wonder, as we have all been trained to wonder over these past several months, “Could it be the coronavirus?” As a matter of fact, the answer is yes. To be precise, I have been...

Tomorrow’s Headlines (Loosely Based on Today’s)

Below, I provide an advance sampling of the mainstream news headlines you will be seeing over the next couple of days. I have deliberately omitted the opinion essays, which of course express bias by definition, in favor of limiting my survey to the unbiased, objective news reportage from the major sources. I hope this helps you sort out your reading priorities during this...

Clash of the Titans

The citizens of the world — nay, the universe — are waiting with breathless anticipation (i.e., they are already dead) for the first titanic reality TV battle between Donald “The Dullard” Trump and Joe “Jughead” Biden. For those of you, however, who, like this author, no longer count yourselves among the citizens of the universe, I provide the following premonitory review of the...

Trump’s Taxes

Well, they got Al Capone for tax evasion, so why not Donald Trump? I guess that’s the reasoning, or what passes for reasoning, over at Democratic Party headquarters, aka The New York Times.  Some random thoughts on this absurd topic: This is the big revelation that the progressive left has been teasing for years, trotted out now just in time for the election:...

If I Were an American Progressive…

If I were an American progressive, I would be angry as hell at the Democratic Party’s decision to do to my movement — the party’s true grassroots — what the Republicans have done for decades to constitutional conservatives, namely tell us to cool our heels at the back of the bus and not make too much noise during an election campaign. If I...
