Welcome to Buster's Blog

Irregular commentary on whatever's on my mind -- politics, sports, current events, and life in general. After twenty years of writing business and community newsletters, fifteen years of fantasy baseball newsletters, and two years of email "columns", this is, I suppose, the inevitable result: the awful conceit that someone might actually care to read what I have to say. Posts may be added often, rarely, or never again. As always, my mood and motivation are unpredictable.

The New Civility And The "Softening" Of The Trump Campaign

(From the HuffPost Hill, 8/26/16, by Arthur Delaney)

Two Trump surrogates demonstrated the new, softer campaign tone:  Maine Gov. Paul LePage apologized for calling someone a “son-of-a-bitch socialist cocksucker” and New Hampshire state rep Al Baldasaro said he regretted “the way” he said Hillary Clinton should be shot by a firing squad, so civility is still alive in our politics. And the Trump campaign hired Bill Stepien, a guy Chris Christie fired for the Bridgegate scandal, which means America can expect a hell of a traffic jam on its way home from Hillary Clinton’s inauguration.
