WHO COULD GUESS WILD CARD DONALD TRUMP WOULD WIND UP THE REPUBLICAN NOMINEE FOR PREZ? NOT ME. NOT IN A MILLION YEARS. TALK ABOUT WILD.
DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU, BUT EVERY TIME I SEE TRUMP AT A PODIUM WITH HIS FRESHLY-DYED, GOLDEN-TOPPED HAIR (OR HAIR SUBSTITUTE) I THINK OF DAVY CROCKETT. DAVY PROUDLY WORE THAT COONSKIN CAP, SO REMINISCENT OF TRUMP’S FAVORED HEADPIECE.
SO, I DID SOME DIGGING AND HERE ARE THE TOP WAYS TRUMP AND DAVY ARE ALIKE:
• THE HAIR APPARENT – BOTH HAD A THING ABOUT THAT THING ON THEIR HEAD
• TV SHOWS – TRUMP HAD THE APPRENTICE AND DAVY CROCKETT HAD A SHOW
(AND A SONG) IN THE 50s
• MULTIPLE WIVES – TRUMP 3, CROCKETT 2
• POLITICS – BOTH TRUMP AND CROCKETT HAD DIFFERENT CAREERS BEFORE TOSSING
THEIR “HAT” IN THE RING FOR POLITICAL CAREERS
• KNIVES & GUNS – BOTH TRUMP AND CROCKETT ARE PRO-WEAPONS
(TRUMP EVEN PRO-NUKE)
• ANTI-MEXICAN – TRUMP WANTS TO BUILD A WALL AND CROCKETT WAS AT THE
ALAMO AND WAS KILLED BY MEXICAN SOLDIERS
SO, THERE YOU HAVE IT. A FAST LOOK AT HOW TRUMP AND CROCKETT ARE TWINSIES.

This all took place at a beautiful home in Washington, D.C., under sunny skies with ample glasses… Read more →
Ya know that old saying… “Never let ‘em see you sweat.” Well, President Obama was a shining example of that in his State of the Union speech. With a gazillion dollar deficit, 10% (or more) unemployment and a healthcare bill that’s not yet reality, the Pres had to hit a home run…and he did. After the formality of shaking everyone… Read more →
It’s been a non-stop party here in DC, the Inauguration epicenter, for the past week. I’ve lived here for almost 25 years and never seen the City so teeming with revelers. It was like New Year’s Eve but 1,000x brighter and with no Dick Clark (though Dick might have been here, too, ya never know). More police cars and tinted-windowed… Read more →
