Be Acidman this election

Pardon me if I take the words of a blogger who died a decade to make this point, but he made a very valid point that is pertinent to this election.

Rob "Acidman" Smith was a freewheeling blogger, who said what he thought without caring a whit, much like Grouchy Old Cripple. You can still read Acidman's Gut Rumbles. His motto:
If my blog does not meet your standards, then LOWER YOUR STANDARDS. Who the hell do you think you are, anyway?
Now let us apply this to the election by reading this story from October 21, 1988, in the Los Angeles Times, back when reporters were reporting news instead of advancing a narrative:
Dukakis Aide Quits; Remarks Are Disavowed
A Democratic presidential campaign official resigned Thursday after the Dukakis campaign disavowed her comment that "George Bush owes it to the American people to fess up" about a rumor concerning an extramarital affair that rippled through Wall Street on Wednesday.
Dukakis personally apologized to Bush for the remarks, made by deputy field director Donna Brazile, when the two candidates met Thursday night in New York for the Catholic archdiocese's annual fund-raising dinner.
Brazile told reporters accompanying the Democratic candidate that "the American people have every right to know if Barbara Bush will share that bed with him in the White House."
Dukakis campaign spokesman Dayton Duncan said later: "Donna was not speaking on behalf of the campaign in any way whatsoever" and did not reflect the views of Dukakis.
This story tells us three things:
1. Reporters still reported news in the 1988 election. Brazile tried to spread the gossip to a bus full of reporters. At least one of them reported this.
2. Dukakis was a fool for firing her and he went on to lose forty states.
3. Hillary is not a fool because she wants to win and hired Brazile.
We can wring hands over the Wikileaks of damning evidence that the Clintons are corrupt, but no one cares. Blathering on about how horrible she is wastes time. That's factored in by an electorate jaded by massive corruption. We are like the Soviet people in the 1960s, defeated by our central government.

What we need to do is man up, vote for Trump, and stop her.

Principles? A Hillary Clinton-run Supreme Court does not care about your principles. In fact, her court will ban your principles as unAmerican, while encoding Hillary's principles as rights guaranteed by the Supreme Court.

One word: abortion.

Two more: open borders.

Three more: third world economy.

I do not care what dirt they dig up on Donald John Trump. It does not matter. I want to Make America Great Again. The lily-white perfect team failed to promise that. To hell with them.

I want to win.

And I also want you to read, "Trump the Press." It's available as a paperback, and on Kindle.


  1. Boy, I miss Acidman. He was one of a kind, no holds barred, and he'd be having a ball right now. Thanks for reminding me!

    1. One of a kind. Proof that writers should have experiences outside of writing

  2. Me too, Don! I've read your book. Loved it!

  3. I keep telling that to the NeverTrumpers.

    They think simply saying it loud enough and often enough will work.

  4. The "muh principles" thing is throwing the baby out with the bathwater. Funny how people can't see that. No. Tragic.

  5. After resigning in disgrace from the Dukakis campaign Donna Brazile left politics and joined a convent. (Just kidding, she’s the current DNC chairman.)

    1. She is a fifth columnist of the fourth estate and a major reason we cannot trust the press.

  6. I used to have so much fun cat bombing Rob. I'd post pictures of cats on my blog and title the posts Cute Cats For Pumpman. The first time I met him in Dahlonega Georgia, he pointed at me as I hobbled into the restaurant on my crutches and said, "You're the SOB that keeps cat bombing me!". Tipped a few with Rob and played guitar with him. Alcohol did him in. Before that happened, he brought a lot of us bloggers from all over the country together.

  7. Acid man had a lot of pain going on, that last year. Physical and mental. I never missed a day reading that guy... Jeebus!
