Argus Hamilton Quips - and More

You just knew that Argus Hamilton would comment on the election, so read his latest column, which includes items such as this one:  "President Obama gave a first class speech to reporters Wednesday in which he congratulated Donald Trump and vowed to do everything he can to help him be successful. The next day he met with Trump at the White House for a private lunch. It was just the two of them and their food tasters."  In his November 10 column, he says, "New York hotel magnate Donald Trump astounded his critics in the media and Hollywood and was elected president of the United States on Tuesday. There had to be silent rejoicing on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood. Donald Trump's election is the Comedian's Full Employment Act of 2016."

I loved this Howie Carr column about the immature protesters. This says it all:  "Can I have the bullhorn please?  I would like to address all of you rioting hippies, fifth-generation welfare leeches and assorted illegal immigrants who are currently looting, burning and carjacking your way across the college campuses and free-stuff districts of America."

Here's a headline I like:  Rudy Giuliani, John Bolton Are Leading Candidates for Next Secretary of State.  I'll take them, even though I'd prefer Giuliani as Attorney General and Bolton as Secretary of State or in his former role as UN Ambassador. Also, I think Kellyanne Conway should be in the administration in some role -- her selection as Trump's campaign manager made all the difference.  How about Ben Carson as HHS Secretary? How about sending Hillary Clinton to some faraway foreign country as its ambassador? And how about some capable Democrats in the cabinet to show our generosity to the losing side?
