Short lived hopes


How long will it be before everyone acknowledges the insignificance of Trump and Sander's wins in New Hampshire tonight?

    1. You are right, Gwil. But I meant insignificant in terms of the November outcome. Unfortunately, I have to live here no matter who is in power.

    2. We have a Presidential campaign ongoing in Austria. The role is purely symbolic. There's the usual line up of bores campaigning to send me to sleep. But now surprise! surprise! it is getting quite interesting . . . Richard Lugner an 83 year old State Opera lion is running at the instigation of his 'first lady', his 25 year old Playboy model wife Spatzi who is now posting the selfies. The pair of them in the bathtub is the first one. I like Richard and his young wife. They make me smile. And for that reason I hope they win. With record unemployment (highest for more than 50 years, the health service in chaos, doctors about to strike, the news that 1 in 5 schoolchildren can't even read, the EU in refugee chaos, . . . and, and, and . . . we really need something to smile about, the possiblity of a miracle exists. "Richard Lugner for President!"

    3. How thrilling! I had no idea this sort of nonsense went on in what I think of as staid and sensible Austria. I'll keep Richard Lugner in mind as I gnash my teeth over Trump.

  2. I fully intend to ignore it in favour of lambasting Michigan. I'm sure I'll manage to offend a few people. =)

  4. Our Tv always mentions (in Germany) that the outcome in November is not mirrored by the results of the elections now.

    1. This is largely true, though one of those Republicans is going to be the nominee and they are all awful.

  5. It read like a story of the candidates outdoing each other with tales drug taking in their families.

  6. That would be the Republicans. I wouldn't want any of them to be elected.

    1. In fact, it's a frightening thought.
