In two weeks, we might know who will be President for the next four years. Then again, we might not.
At this point I’m not sure what to think. I see the polls, sure, but then, I saw them in 2016 too. We were out elk hunting on Election Day 2016, having filed ballots in advance, and I went to bed that night pretty depressed at the idea of Her Imperial Majesty Hillary I, Dowager Empress of Chappaqua, actually sitting in the Imperial Mansion. Next morning, I went out and started up Rojito, flipped on the satellite radio, and was flabbergasted; when loyal sidekick Rat opened the other door to climb in, I looked at him and said, “Holy shit, he actually pulled it off!”
I also see a huge enthusiasm gap. President Trump is speaking to thunderous crowds of tens of thousands, while Groper Joe is speaking to tepid crowds of tens. And, in a stunning admission of his campaign’s low energy levels, he has again called a “lid” – this time from Monday morning until after tomorrow’s debate. Four whole days!
I hope the President can pull it off again. If the Democrats once more gain control of the Congress and the Imperial Mansion, they clearly intend to rig it so they never have to give it up again. They’ve said as much.
Now that I’m done venting about that…
On To the Links!
I found this interesting, partly because my father-in-law (as fine a man as ever lived) is an albino. He makes the best Santa Claus.
Maybe don’t leave your guns in your car? Just saying.

This Week’s Idiots:
Our blogger pals over at The Daley Gator point out some University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse idiots. I grew up about forty miles from LaCrosse; in my day it wasn’t totally inhabited by pussies.
This week’s song comes from one of the best (and completely self-taught) female vocalists alive today, Mary Fahl. Mrs. Animal and I have seen Mary perform live twice, and she’s amazing; both times we had the opportunity to chat with her after the show, and she’s as warm, friendly and charming as she is talented.
This audio-only cut comes to you from a live performance at the Mauch Chunk Opera House in New York; this is Be My Hero. Enjoy.
