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.

Hillary Clinton Was Wrong About "The Deplorables"

Wonderfully explained by the great Keith Olbermann  (text followed by video link).  I know a few people who really need to take these words to heart.

"Secretary Clinton originally postulated that half of Trump's supporters were not deplorable.  And that's where she screwed up.  Because if you support Trump, if you think he should be president regardless of how much he and his advocates hate, and mock, and punch old women with oxygen cannisters; if you're not condemning this madness and repudiating these deplorable people, and you're not racist, not sexist, not homophobic, not xenophobic, or not Islamophobic; if you're supporting him not for those things but in spite of them, you are even more deplorable!  The correct number, Secretary Clinton, is not fifty percent, it's a hundred."
