Where did you get the idea that Mark Shields is "the ultimate liberal Democratic Party loyalist"? He has the best institutional memory in Washington and, as he always has, calls 'em like he sees 'em, with reliable insight most commentators lack. Speaking truth to power is bedrock for Shields. That includes frequent criticism of Democrats and of the party. If the Democratic Party wants a major upgrade in integrity and in success, it would put Mark Shields in charge, or at least pay very close attention to what he says. If only the Sabbath Gasbags could aspire to the professionalism of Shields, the country would be far better informed.

Sorry, calling the Dems an all-black party would be inaccurate -- it's mostly white with a sizeable number of non-whites and blacks. Not sure why calling the GOP "all-white" is inaccurate. What can be disputed is that Brooks would exclude GOP reps from the debate because of that.

Tyler

Edward,

Doublin down on that Talmudic hair splitting. The Colonel is a better man than me. I wouldn't ban you for disagreeing, I'd ban you for being tiresome and mendacious.

Edward Amame

Interesting choice of adjectives, Tyler. Apparently I irritated a couple of people with the (((echoes))) comment. Tough.

I doubt that there is much beyond "He's rich and funny". She isn't seem with him often, Ivanka yes but Melania no. Trump is older by several months than Hillary and he also is quite overweight, carrying his weight around his middle which is not that healthy. He also admits to eating fast food and drinking sodas. A few glasses of wine would be much healthier for him than those sodas. As for his never drinking alcohol can we really believe him. I would imagine that at his age he also takes Viagra on a regular basis but as I mentioned Melania does not seem to be around a lot, so maybe not.
He seems to wear a lot of make up on his face, giving him an orange hue, to hide what? He has large pouches under his eyes and his face looks edematous, possibly caused by hypertension and water retention. You mentioned that Hillary is probably on medication for hypertension because of her age but as I mentioned he is older than she and it is more common in men than women.

"I would imagine that at his age he also takes Viagra on a regular basis." Why would you imagine that? Are men his age generally impotent? pl

I'll attempt to read Nancy K's mind here: It's not that men Trump's age are generally impotent; it's that a lot of blustery, "success"-oriented men of a certain sage, with big egos whose size cries out to be verified at every turn, take Viagra or Cialis in an attempt to improve their sexual performance, in particular to have erections that last a good deal longer than they would otherwise. Whether this actually happens to those who take such drugs, I myself don't know. But I do know anecdotally that a fair number of men of Trump's vintage and apparent emotional type do take Viagra and Cialis along these lines. Further, if that's their orientation, they're not likely to stop at the recommended dose.

An overdose can be deadly. I know of several rich Arabs who did themselves in that way. More must be better, yes? No. pl

Nancy K,

"I would imagine that at his age he also takes Viagra on a regular basis but as I mentioned Melania does not seem to be around a lot, so maybe not. "

Ah yes, typical go-to-attack on a man's virility that women like to use when they have no argument. Whether Trump uses viagra or not is irrelevant. Women always want a winner and Trump, regardless of what you think of him, is a winner.

Nancy K

I don't know if most men his age are generally impotent but it is more common at 70 then say at 40. However most men his age do not have a wife 30 years younger than they are. I'm not implying there is anything wrong with taking Viagra or of having a younger wife. I guess I am saying that turn about is fair play and there have many numerous posts concerning Hillary and her age and alleged health problems. Perhaps I am being overly sensitive as Hillary and I are of the same age and it just seems that our society deems a man of 70 an elder statesmen or powerful while a woman is just old.

Nancy K,

"quite overweight, carrying his weight around his middle which is not that healthy."

He's got plenty of company in America.

Nancy,

one of the most attractive women I've seen in recent years is at least 70. The comments above on Hilary's health are about strokes and blood thinners and not potshots about looks; all politician have to endure those.

Nancy K

Here is a comment on this thread regarding Hillary Clinton "She's nearly 70 ears old. She's pretty close to being fit to be a greeter at Walmart. Not quite, but close. And we are going to make this individual President of the United States?"
I imagine that Bill Herschel, who wrote the above supports Trump, who is older than Hillary. Does that not make Trump better qualified to be the greeter. Also how does the above comment refer to her alleged health issues not her looks or age.
I agree that Hillary Clinton is far from a runway model, however take a good look at Trump he is not going to make People Magazines Sexiest Men alive selection.

Nancy K

Viagra use or abuse can lead to priapism, an erection lasting more than 4 hours. Their advertisements on TV warn viewers to see kmedical help immediately if this happens. I guess it is possible to have too much of a good thing.

Fred

Nancy,

The stroke comments are all on the "61% panicked" thread, sorry to get that wrong. The comments on types of strokes are informative FWIW.
