    Obviously the solution is a Clinton-Trump dream ticket. It would be like good cop/bad cop. Be nice to POTUS or she’ll set the VP on you. You think Biden is a loose cannon.

    Compare against the Lincoln administration:

    I like shopping the mysterious sauces along the back wall where the only English information is printed in impossibly small type on a label slapped on to the back of the bottle. You have to go by the illustration on the label showing an intended use like gyoza or sashimi.

    Trump and Putin are already at it. This is a mural in Vilnius.

    Oh they’re both sane, they’re just crafty. I consider Hillary to be more qualified because of her experience as a Senator, First Lady and Secretary of State.

    I used to live about 1/2 mile from there, it’s fun shopping. They are behind the Staples, on the north side of the mall.

    For years I have wanted to parody David Bowie’s Young Americans as Young Republican because that rolls off the tongue. Young Republican, young Republican, she wants the young Republican.

    But the song is rambling and long and even if I did manage to parody the whole thing few people would understand it. I’ll post a section of the original:

    Do you remember, your President Nixon?
    Do you remember, the bills you have to pay?
    Or even yesterday?
    Have been the un-American?
    Just you and your idol sing falsetto
    ’bout Leather, leather everywhere, and
    Not a myth left from the ghetto
    Well, well, well, would you carry a razor
    In case, just in case of depression?
    Sit on your hands on a bus of survivors
    Blushing at all the afro-Sheeners
    Ain’t that close to love?
    Well, ain’t that poster love?
    Well, it ain’t that Barbie doll
    Her hearts have been broken just like you

    They had one of these parked outside until the hubcaps were stolen. Maybe they would have stolen the car but they couldn’t figure out a 3-speed column shift.

    I didn’t vote for him. I’m just surprised that, given his record of union busting and slashing local municipal funds, he nevertheless was rejected for being too moderate.

    Wait until Trump is defeated by a woman, that will be a burn for him. Heh.

    I was not surprised to see Kasich running for President but I was surprised to see him rejected for being too reasonable.

    As I drone slowly through that Kroger, I hover around a kiosk of Ohio products.

    Lo and behold, JB’s Best BBQ ghost pepper sauce out of Athens:

    Nice. It tastes good, nice tomato base, but it takes a few seconds for the 500-pound weight to fall 500 feet onto your head.

    This is what the hottest BBQ sauce at wing places should be. Their hottest offerings are maybe as hot as this (not always) but the salt levels are insane.

    NPR just reported that there will be a jazz funeral for Prince in New Orleans. How would you like to be there for that?

    I wonder what will happen to Prince’s famous vault of music.

    Frank Zappa set up a legal family trust sitting on an actual vault of recorded music and video. His widow decides what to release and when.

    OK this is unusual, my Kroger is closing out a Spanish food promotion and I got some jars of this garlic-parsley sauce:

    http://neuheiten.koelnmesse.net/250/2015/us/products/view/product_id:20923/cat:26418

    It is intense. I put a full jar into a batch of pasta and went into overgarlic, which is rare for me. I’ll go back and get more while they still have it.
