    1) selected by primaries
    2) Bernie
    3) “relatively” peaceful

    Youngest daughter and her friends were joking about pickup lines.
    One of them makes me think of Miss Ukraine

    Boy: “Are you a California girl?”
    Girl: “Yeah, why?”
    Boy: “Because I REALLY like your coastline!”

    Jim, the new pickup line in Kalifornia is: “I have a generator!” Chicks dig electricity

    One of the finest Americans EVER…period. He “cheated” his way into the Army Air-Corp (fudging his weight…which was VERY low) just 3 weeks after winning the Academy Award. Then served 27 years in the Air Force. A truly amazing man!

    JR #8:

    As this article points out, Jimmy Stewart enlisted as a private. When the Army Air Corps discovered he already knew how to fly, they made him an officer – one of very few to enlist as a private and leave as a general.

    bc3b, Jimmy Stewart had already been turned down trying to enlist…at 6’3″ and 145 pounds he was woefully underweight. Yet despite having just won the Academy Award he managed to fudge his weight (he later denied he put fishing weights in his pockets…but the rumor persisted), and got in.

    He also refused to be a “celebrity”…he wanted an active COMBOAT role, and got one as commander of a bomber. Quite a man! Then flying a B-52 mission over Viet Nam in 1965!!!

    Hollywood will NEVER produce someone like him again.

    JR – If there’s room on the rear bumper of your new Prius pickup (with the 3,000 mile “check your privilege alert”) next to the Marines and Bernie stickers, you might wish to add a “Secede to Idaho”sticker. I don’t think you want to secede to Oregon.

    I understand you purchased a demo with 2,500 miles on it so you only have to wait 500 miles for the “check your privilege” alert.

    The real shame is Stewart not being buried at Arlington.

    Heh.
    From Instapundit along with a smiling “cat ate the canary” picture of Hillary captioned “So you’re saying there’s a chance?”

    Biden has collapsed from a high of 37.9% on January 20 to a grim 9.8% as of February 19.

    Warren peaked on October 13 at a field-burying 53.9% chance of winning the nomination.
    As of February 19, she’s all the way down at a dismal 3.6%

    (which is beneath Hillary Clinton, who’s not even in the race but who oddsmakers are saying still has a 4.9% chance of winning).

    Another heh.
    It is apparently sinking in to the Dem voters just how bad this is ….

    Steve Hayward at PowerLine says a Lefty friend sent him this:
    “Last night was the first Dem debate I tuned into, and it was horrifying. . . . It’s a f—— catastrophe!”

    Don Surber makes a prediction:
    “Democrats are excited that so many people watched their debate.” (CNN: it’s a new record high for Dem Debate viewership!) “Their audience for their February 25 debate will show why.”

    Let’s see. If the debate numbers for 2/25 are low, it indeed indicates that Dems are in shocked disbelief.

    A’stan War might be ending.
    https://donsurber.blogspot.com/2020/02/afghanistan-war-ends.html
    “In recent weeks, in consultation with the Government of National Unity, U.S. negotiators in Doha have come to an understanding with the Taliban on a significant and nationwide reduction in violence across Afghanistan. Upon a successful implementation of this understanding, signing of the U.S.-Taliban agreement is expected to move forward. We are preparing for the signing to take place on February 29.”

    My guess brokered,Bloomy and I hope a revisit of 68. Let America see what thugs the dems are.

    Miss Ukraine is my definition of winning. And we are not tired of winning.

    fight on, if there is a brokered convention (as seems likely), and they (DNC and/or Bloomberg) DO steal it from Bernie (which also seems VERY likely) then violence is a given!!

    Popcorn, please

    Jim,

    The even better piece in your Surber link is — “Newspaper chain McClatchy, owner of publications such as the Miami Herald and Kansas City Star, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection [on February 13] after grappling with a pension crisis and the news industry’s financial challenges.

    Remember you don’t fight Conan….

    Saw a “Feel the Bern” bumper sticker at lunch. It was on the bumper of a Green Lantern pizza delivery boy.

    26,

    Their pizzas are that bad huh??

    Actually Green Lantern pizza is considered one of the best (and more expensive) in the north Detroit suburbs. Everyone else has a 15-20 minute wait time. With Green Lantern it’s often 40-45 minutes. It’s just in the Trump economy you can’t be choosy about pizza delivery boys.

    22 – Jim… we’ll see we’ve been at similar points before but then it all falls apart, hopefully it happens but don’t hold your breath.
