I Was Wrong!

Could be the first of a very long series


Don’t you just hate it when you’re wrong? You do? I don’t. I love it. I absolutely love it. Maybe it’s because I am wrong so seldom. In this instance there’s another reason I’m so happy I was wrong. Here is what I had to say last year:

This was back on 16 June. Real estate tycoon and billionaire Donald Trump announced he is a candidate for the Republican Party nomination for president. I recall at the time I had some sort of snarky response. It was something like:

Happy days are here again
The skies above are clear again
So let’s sing a song of cheer again
Happy days are here again

That was because I knew, as did anybody fresh out of captivity by the Taliban, that the fun was about to begin. Unfortunately I had mis located my egg timer. The fun was not late coming:

In that misbegotten piece I reminded some Facebook friends that a Donald Trump nomination would the the Democratic Party’s dream come true. “Happy days are here again.” I went on to say:

Getting back to the original issue, is Trump number one? No. He’s number two in the only polls I’ve seen. Do I wish for Trump to win the Republican nomination? Does The Donald wear a piece? I salivate at the prospect of that first debate. It might go something like this:

  • Panelist: Mr. Trump, if you are elected president, who would be First Lady?
  • Trump: Why the answer is obvious. It would be my lovely wife Melania.
  • Panelist: No, Mr. Trump. I mean next year, when you take office.

Trump was headed for a quick exit stage right. I was sure. No, I was wrong! And I am so very happy.


The dude is on a roll. And Tea Party Republicans are roiled. They sowed the wind, and now they are reaping the whirlwind. They wanted anti-establishment. They are getting anti-establishment. And it’s coming soon to a voting booth near you. I’m wondering if these people have figured out what they are going to be doing next January 20th.

Tea Party Republicans may be getting to know how Victor Frankenstein must have felt:


In the meantime Bill and Hillary are picking out new drapes for the White House. Of course, I’ve been wrong before.
