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.

I'd Say It's More Than Half!

Speaking at a fundraiser on Friday, Hillary Clinton said:

"Just to be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call "the basket of deplorables" -- racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, you name it.  Unfortunately, there are people like that.  And he has lifted them up."

I thought it was a pretty good zinger, not to mention accurate.

But the Insult King Donnie Drumpf differed, tweeting, "Wow, that was SO INSULTING to my supporters, millions of amazing, hard-working people."

LOL!  We sure wouldn't want to insult these "amazing" people:

For her part, Hillary half-heartedly tried to downplay it by saying, "I regret saying 'half' -- that was wrong."

Yes, it was.  Because it's more than half!

Public Policy Polling data of 2016 South Carolina Trump Supporters:
80% want a ban on Muslims entering the U.S.
62% want a national database of Muslims
40% want to shut down all mosques in the U.S.
33% want to ban the practice of Islam in the U.S.
31% want a ban on homosexuals entering the U.S.
