Talk To The Populist

With apologizes to Bobby Darin and his “Talk to the Animals”

trump
If I could talk to the Populist, just imagine it
Chattin’ with Donald in Trumpanzee
Imagine talking to a Spicer, chatting with a Conway
What a neat achievement it would be

If we could talk to the Populist, learn all his languages
I could take a Trumpian degree
I’d study Steve Bannon The racist, Priebus the chairman
Tillerson, Steve Mnuchin, and Price

I would converse with Jeff Sessions and Devos
And I would curse in fluent Senate-ease
If people ask me, “Can you speak Alternatives?”
I’d say, “Of courseative, can’t these?”

If I spoke slang to his Cabinet
The advantages why any fool on earth could plainly see
Discussing religion and ethos with intellectual Right Wings
That’s a big step backward you’ll agree

I’d study every populist behavior
So I could speak to all of them on site
If friends said, “Can he talk with communist or Bolshelists?”
You’d say, “Alt Left and you’d be right”

And if you just stop and think of it ain’t no doubt of it
I’m gonna win a place in history
If I could walk with the Populist talk with the Populist
Twist, Fib, Stoop with the Populist
And they could Twist and fib and lie and mislead me

Quote Challenge – Day 3 (Finally)

I have been nominated by Claudette of Ceenoa to this challenge.
These are my quotes for Day 3
The last day of this challenge for me and I have chosen 3 Political Figures – two of which I consider excellent statesmen…

“Well, I learned a lot….I went down to (Latin America) to find out from them and (learn) their views. You’d be surprised. They’re all individual countries”
-Ronald Reagan

I don’t make jokes. I just watch the government and report the facts.

-Pat Paulsen

 

The Rules of this Quote Challenge are:
1-Post on three consecutive days.
2-You can pick one or three quotes per day.
3-Normally at this point I should issue a challenge to a number of bloggers, but being the shy person I am, I am reticent to do that. But please understand that I love to see inspirational quotes and art, so if you have them – Bring them on!

Donald Trump aka Pat Paulson Incarnate

Pat Paulson Donald Trump

Pat Paulson Donald Trump

After months of observing the Republican presidential candidate search, it has become obvious that Donald Trump is really the reincarnation of Pat Paulson.  And as skillfully as an act in a Smothers Brothers Comedy Sketch, he is using this campaign run as a wildly successful publicity stunt for the “Trump” brand..

There is a precedent for this. If you recall in the late 60’s, Pat Paulson (a comedian on the Smothers Brothers TV show) started a fictitious campaign for president. He was so successful that CBS had the Smothers Brothers devote part of a show telling people it was all a joke and they should not waste their vote.

No one in his right mind could produce the political turmoil to his party unless it is all just a tongue-in-cheek party joke.

Here is one of Pat’s later TV appearances before his death in 1997.
