Butch Cassidy, and a Lesson for the Democrats (Paul Pitlick, USA, 10/06/19 3:56 am)

You'll probably think I'm being flippant here, but I'm considerably more than half serious. Many of us are old enough to remember Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. There's a great scene, where Butch is challenged to a knife fight. It's only 2 minutes--watch it.


Someone on the Democratic side needs to realize that there are no rules. Could be Joe Biden, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff; someone prominent, who'll draw widespread press coverage. The message is simple enough that even Trump's base might be able to understand it. The message is "Hey, China, Ukraine, Italy, Australia, whomever. Mr. Trump is trying to draw us into a knife fight. While he thinks he's the best American president ever, many of us are thinking you might want to deal with someone who's not so mentally unbalanced, starting in 2021. So, if you do decide to release your information about your dealings with the Bidens, we hope that you will do it in a very public way. We are truly worried about corruption here, so we would like to hear what you have to say.

"While you are at it, would you please also publicly release your information about your secretive dealings with members of the Trump administration, such as Donald Trump himself, but also Rudy Giuliani, Mike Pence, William Barr, his 3 adult children and son-in-law, plus various ambassadors and other appropriate individuals. The American public would be very grateful."

This message should be repeated every time Mr. Trump asks for information about Mr. Biden.

JE comments:  Mr Obama, you listening?  These words need to come from a senior statesman, someone removed from the political fray.  Yet on the other hand, isn't such an appeal an invitation for foreign meddling?

Butch Cassidy was released on October 24th, 1969.  In a couple of weeks, that will be 50 years.  Yikes.  I noticed that Logan, the giant who challenges Paul Newman to the fight, also played Lurch on the Addams Family.

You rang...?
