I find this story amazing. Maybe the folks at Superstition Springs Golf Club will offer him a consulting gig – with the loss of water having them to redesign holes they could use it!

I’m OK with everyone and their brother investigating the charges against Supreme Court justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh as long as Democrats equally agree to investigate rape charges against Bill Clinton and abuse charges against congressman and Minnesota Attorney General candidate Keith Ellison. I won’t hold my breath…

I’m not optimistic about the Red Sox chances in the post-season. Sure, they could run up the score against the awful American League East, but I’m not sure they’re built for the playoffs. Personally, my money is on the Cleveland Indians and the Houston Astros.

Here’s the optics problem for Democrats:

Grassley has offered Ford a public hearing, a closed-door hearing, and even to send investigators to her to gather evidence if the idea of coming to Washington is uncomfortable. Trump enemies like Jeff Flake and Bob Corker have done everything they could to signal to Ford and her liberal friends that if she shows up on Monday and seems sincere, there’s a good chance they’ll vote to blow Kavanaugh up. Democrats had two farking months to push this accusation and demand an extended hearing, which the calendar easily would have accommodated. Instead they engineered an ambush, after Kavanaugh’s hearing had already concluded, to try to drive him into a ditch before the vote. As of this afternoon, Feinstein still hadn’t given Grassley a complete copy of Ford’s July letter. There are a lot of things about this process that look like a “sham” but Grassley’s hearing isn’t one of them.

You can’t all of a sudden send a letter with nefarious charges against a Supreme Court nominee, then hide behind your lawyer and the very Democrats seeking to torpedo his nomination by refusing to appear at a hearing designed to hear those very same charges. And don’t get me started on the request for a FBI investigation: the FBI wouldn’t touch something that supposedly occurred 35 years ago, under local jurisdiction. Anyone (including Ford’s lawyer) knows this. Hint to Senator Feinstein: if you’re going to sabotage a Republican president’s Supreme Court nominee, try to find someone who at least knows where, when, and how the sexual abuse she claims happened, happened.

In the end, this will be seen as a gamble where the Democrats rolled the dice thinking that the same thing that happened to Roy Moore would work with Kavanaugh. Instead, I guarantee this is all going to backfire on the Democrats, and in a big way. Even casual observers are now going to see this as just another example of Democrats in Washington for what they really are.

…hint to CNN: If this is the best you can do

The Patriots looked awful against the Jacksonville Jaguars this past Sunday, but you don’t learn much from football played in September. Let’s see where everything – and everyone – stands come the first week of December.

Question: is there a dumber U.S. senator than New York’s Kirsten Gillibrand? I don’t think so. Compared to her, Dianne Feinstein is Henry Clay.

…and speaking of dumb, can we all agree that Hillary Clinton should just go away. I read stories like this and can only imagine the nightmare of a life this bitter, old hag is living. Frankly, she deserves it. Politically speaking, she’s the political equivalent of herpes.

Olivia Newton-John did a lot of great songs, but this is my favorite. A truly great and innovative arrangement – something I blogged about, BTW, years ago.

Silly me, I thought liberals were all about tolerance, acceptance and diversity.

Dead senator walking. Come six weeks, she’s toast.

Just evidence that there are dickheads in management everywhere, not just at my company. People like them have no soul, no humanity. They suck. Avoid them at all cost, lest you lose your own soul in the process.

Music to make you cry. Ennio Morricone’s music to Sergio Leone’s “Once Upon A Time In The West” has gotten well-deserved accolades over the years, but no one has sung “Jill’s Theme” as beautifully as Patricia Janeckova did back in 2012. If I have this played at my funeral (whenever that is) it would be one helluva way to go out. It is a true “life song” of mine.
