Good Luck Mr. Speaker!

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 11:12 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the Golden Sun Laden, breezy, moon still a rising over that amazing island of Nantucket! Great to be back with you (and yours), on this Friday morning here at the Historic Hyannis/Hyannis Port Waterfront(s)–the 30th day of October, 2015–another good day to be alive on a little sand bar created naturally by retreating glaciers some 11,500 years ago.  The strange and eerie remnants of Hurricane Patricia now long gone; a calmer, more seasonable weather pattern taking hold.  But of course in this day and age of ‘epic’ storms, one must conclude that taking advantage of a day such as this is of Paramount importance.  All related, relevant, and deeply connected to the old truism in Latin, “Carpe Diem”

seize the day…

That sentiment is exactly what the U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives exercised yesterday, passing a 2 year budget bill that has now eliminated the the many, many, man made fiscal crisis-es in this nation, perhaps allowing for some new compromises to take hold on Capitol Hill, with newly elected Wisconsin Congressman (R), Paul Ryan getting the nod to take that number three position of power in the United States governmental hierarchy.  Congratulations Mr. Speaker and may you have Good Luck with this tough position, holding fast to that ‘condition’ of not taking time away from family life.  May he be able to spend as much time with them as he may have to with lobbyists, or fund raisers, or any of the other nonsense that has been the undoing of much of this sacred democracy–the one with that little letter ‘d’…

Mr. Ryan will be taking over for outgoing Republican Ohio Congressman John Boehner, who gave an emotional speech to his colleagues before announcing Paul as his replacement.  A fine oration, clearly proving what a good and decent Speaker he really was.  Put in almost impossible situations with most, including this humble reporter, taking direct aim at many policy choices, philosophies and what not, may you have a great retirement and drop six shots of your overall handicap…

The race for the Republican 2016 presidential nomination was headlined this week of course, in the second, or was it the third GOP debate; many taking note of the battle between establishment favorite Jeb Bush and Florida Senator Marco Rubio, his young apprentice if you will, a man who now seems to own the conversion.., although one might take stock of the fact Jeb! has and always will, in this crowded GOP field, looked and acted the most presidential and thus, may have the real inner strength and fortitude to pull out wins in Iowa and New Hampshire, although that is a tall order at ‘this juncture’.

One looks forward to Donald Trump’s appearance, still one of the front runners, on SNL this Halloween, just one day from NOW! I think he told NBC’s Casey Hunt recently, “…it’s none of your business what I am going as young lady, in fact, I think I am going to go as the head of MSNBC and get you fired for ‘thinking outside of the box’ too much…’  How do you like them apples?  Oh, and to Alex Wagner and Lawrence O’Donnell, Rachel Maddow, Chris Hayes and Abbey Huntsman, Ari Melber, Toure, Krystal Ball, or that ‘fact obsessed’ intrepid reporter Steve Kornacki, yous are all a bunch of whiners and you better start saying nice things about me too!”

“You take everything so serious, why do you have to analyze so much?  I don’t know what I say from day to day, nor do I really care. Why the hell should yous people?  Who cares what the voter ‘thinks’ anyways? Always with the analyzing!

“Analyze That!” (credit the 2002 film of the same name; starring Billy Crystal and Robert De Niro).

“Holy Christ!  Why can’t you be more like the guys over on FOX, oh, wait, strike ‘dat, they don’t like me so much over ‘der no more see, especially after that whole Megan Kelly thing, Jeez!  Yeah, all I can say is this Casey, may I call you Casey?  You can quote me in begging you people, yeah, yous people in Iowa at least make me happy for a New York minute here and put me back into ‘dat first place spot, do you know what losing to such low energy guys is doing for my ratings? You’re killing me over here!”

Happy Halloween Y‘ALL!
