The Morning Rant

So with the Fake Christian and the Minnesota Mistake dropping out, the Democrats are left with the Deranged Stalinist, the Angry Schoolmarm, Richie Rich, and the Memory Care Unit Escapee.

The Fake Christian and the Minnesota Mistake calling it quits almost simultaneously *just before* Super Tuesday suggests that a deal had been made. And who knows what promises were made, favors were granted, and quid pros were quo'ed behind the scenes?

For some reason, everyone, even the MSM, are lining up against the Deranged Stalinist. Which is kind of weird because he's the only one drawing enthusiastic crowds to his rallies. Ever see videos of an Angry Schoolmarm townhall meeting or one of the MCU Escapee's campaign speeches? They've got all of the enthusiasm and crackling energy of a PTA meeting. They're attended by virtually *dozens* of people standing around, looking like they're wondering why they're there. Meanwhile, the Deranged Stalinist is packing them in by the thousands. That's where the Democratic enthusiasm lives.

So the Democratic establishment knives are out for the Deranged Stalinist.

Not that it matters much. I think PDT can defeat any Democrat, so their only choice is how do they want to lose. It's sort of like the choice that Clyde Barrow had to make. At some point, he had broken so many laws that he knew that if they ever took him alive, he would shortly thereafter be swinging from a noose. So he preferred to go out in a spectacular blaze of gunfire. Perhaps the Democrats should adopt this same attitude. They're going to lose, so let their progressive kook base work themselves into a fit of ecstasy over their preferred candidate. So when the Deranged Stalinist goes down in flames, they won't tear the party apart for not running their guy. Their only complaint is that the Deranged Stalinist wasn't deranged enough for them.

(note: this rant has been rendered somewhat obsolete by recent events, but I'm too lazy to do a rewrite)

Monday's celebs: I unintentionally picked two stars whose lives ended quite badly. Barbara Payton, a starlet signed by Universal in 1948 and soon was starring in movies opposite James Cagney, Gregory Peck, and Gary Cooper. But then a reckless, self-destructive streak kicked in and she turned into a party girl, and then, ultimately, an unemployable alcoholic. She died of heart and liver failure at age 39. Her imdb.com bio has all the sordid details. The male celeb, Gig Young, had a longer career, even winning an Oscar for his performance in They Shoot Horses, Don't They?, but he, too, took to the bottle. His career spiraled downward, and, in 1978, Young shot and killed his wife (German actress Kim Schmidt), whom he had just married, and then himself. Yeah, it was one of those grisly murder-suicide things. More on his pathetic life here. Payton and Young starred in the movie Only the Valiant in happier days.
