No. This has absolutely nothing to do with sports, just a game.
I’ve been at this a long time. I have seen candidates who are not too bright win campaigns while those few brilliant candidates are sent back home without even a “parting gift.”
Then, I’ve been told, there are magic moments when it may seem like some powerful force has stepped in to save the campaign.

This is a link to an opinion column attributed to former governor Jan Brewer published in the Arizona Capitol Times.
The core of the column is an attempt to put lipstick on the disastrous Trump administration border policies that have created the very real humanitarian crisis.
Dear Members of the Arizona Legislature,
We’ve been noticing that you don’t seem to remember the Oath you swore to when we elected you.

But as much as I share the opinions (and prayers) of my progressive colleagues, the truth is that the odds are overwhelmingly against Republicans using their control of Congress to fix this mess.
If you’ve never heard the phrase “Wag The Dog” you may be missing out on what could be the Washington story of the year.… Read the rest
But I get ahead of myself.
“Wag the Dog” refers to a story and film by that name that came out in 1997.

But even today I remember that small patch of smooth skin on his left shoulder. It had an almost translucent quality. Dad never liked to talk about it.
I know I can’t be the only one. Right? I mean it seems as if everyone with any sense left looks at Mr. Trump’s actions and words regarding Russia and comes to the same conclusion: He’s the only one who can’t or won’t acknowledge that Russia launched a massive cyberattack on the United States during our 2016 election.… Read the rest
