If only…

While liveblogging the first debate I wrote:

Scott Walker has a really weird haircut. And they make fun of Donald for that, but Walker has even weirder hair than Trump.

If only Walker had hired me as a campaign advisor, I would have told him to call Mitt Romney and find out who his barber is.

Trump is able to overcome strange hair through bombast, even making it his signature trademark. A boring guy like Walker cannot get elected president if his hair lacks gravitas.

  1. This is a loss, as I still believe Walker would have been a good candidate, but better men than him have failed to secure a nomination.

    • You mean, perhaps, that Walker would have been a good president? He was a horrible candidate and wasn’t going to improve.

      • You’re correct, I do mean a good president.

      Walker often led Jeb Bush nationally, and he was far ahead in Iowa. Then Trump took off. Without Trump Walker might still be in first place.

      • His debate performance sucked. Cruz, Rubio, the witch Fiorina, all had good performances and rose in the polls as a result.

        Is it right to select presidents on how well they perform in a debate that has nothing to do with actually being president? I don’t know.

      • His debate performance sucked.

        Trump’s star power overwhelmed not only Walker but everyone. How was he supposed to stand out when the media hardly asked any questions? Of course, Walker’s lack of charisma would still have been a liability.

    • The country really blew it by passing up on Romney in 2012. That is a big part of the current rebellion, at least for me.

      After Romney’s defeat in 2012, a lot of people think “f$ck it.” The Republican electorate tried to just put forth the most electable and excellent candidate there was and it just didn’t matter. The media saw Romney was winning and went 100% against him and even vanished Obama’s scandals until after the election.

      The left overplayed its hand. Too many have contempt for the whole system. In Soviet Russia, the system eventually became a joke, and all the power in the world could not change that.

      • This difference is, that the old Soviet media was controlled from the outside and resented the limits placed on it. Our media loves their slavery. They are fully enthusiastic to support their side.

  2. “Trump is able to overcome strange hair through bombast”

    Trump is able to overcome strange hair by having a supermodel wife. The less attractive he is, the more alpha he must be. A certain percentage of Trump supporters are no doubt “game” enthusiasts who are won over by his ability to get a woman so much better looking than him.

    Meanwhile feminist women no doubt hate Trump for the same reason. My wife is annoyed that Trump has a young hot thing by his side.

    • Trump’s “ability to get a woman so much better looking than him” is due mainly to his money and power. If he were a junior high school principal from Maspeth, Queens, would even one of the current/former Mrs. Trump’s have been interested? It’s like the Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page. Age 71 and with a woman close to 50 years younger. If he were a truck driver from Wales he would have trouble getting a 45 year old woman. Men like youth and beauty. Women like power, money, and fame. Except, of course, for oddball women like me who are attracted to off-beat types, especially intellectuals!


      September 21, 2015 at 9:16 pm

      • Had Don not inherited his daddy’s wealth, well, yes, he would be the principal at Maspeth Junior High.

        Yah fayad Mary, for speaking ill about the Donald!


        September 21, 2015 at 10:54 pm

      • “Yah fayad Mary, for speaking ill about the Donald!”

        The Donald could never fire me, because I’d never work for him in the first place. I’m just waiting for you, JS, to start your own company so I can be your executive assistant. That way the worst you could say is “Can’t you get my reports done right? This is what I get for hiring a guidette prole. For punishment you’re exiled to Staten Island to spend a week with our newest client, Gilbert Gottfried, and listening to him talk.” And I’ll be facebooking this message: “Do I have the greatest luck, or what? Thanks, boss! But I doubt that Mr. Gottfried and I will be doing much “talking” if you know what I mean”

    • Women hating on other women. I don’t believe it….the sisterhood is splintering!

      Practically speaking, having $10 billion* helps in getting a supermodel wife, but as The Last Psychiatrist said, even Bill Clinton had to become president just to get a girl as hot as Monica Lewinsky.

      • As hot as Monica? She was fat and plain in the early 1990s, and has not improved. Bill seems to like ’em plump, though.

    • Trump is 70…he was a good looking man when younger.


      September 23, 2015 at 9:45 am

      • Romney is certainly a lot better looking as an old man than Trump is. On the other hand, Romney probably lost the election because he was TOO PERFECT, which scares the proles.

  3. You’re right about the hair. He has a bad haircut and a bad combover. His hair is messy too and not combed well. He just looks like a huge dork in general and is very stiff.

    It looks like it will go down to Trump vs. Bush, with Bush being able to hang in there simply by virtue of his money, connections, and establishment support while the other candidates have to drop out.


    September 21, 2015 at 7:39 pm

    • Bush 3.0 in the White House, would signify the official end of Meriprolestan.

  4. it’s hard to have good hair when you’ve significantly norwooded. trumps hair isn’t weird; its covering the fact that he’s basically close to bald.

  6. He was my favorite (next to Cruz) so my contrary indicator powers are clearly intact. Cruz will probably drop out next and then Fiorina will lose to Sanders in the general.

    Speaking of Fiorina, nice call on that. I knew a lot of Compaq people at the time and that corporate tree climbing snake was an absolutely disaster. Did you see the Post editorial from that Yale professor?

    How about in the debate when she said dramatically state that “I hope I’m the only person here who can say this but … MY HUSBAND AND I buried a child to drug addiction”. Brutal, huh? Until I learned that it was her STEP-DAUGHTER and that the MOTHER burying that child was someone else.

    So what degree of a psychopathic cvnt do you have to claim a dead step-child as your own as a political prop? Any step-parent with a shred of decency or compassion would be horrified at the very thought of going in front of millions of people and laying claim to another mother’s misery in such an blatant and outrageous manner.

    I’d bet 100-to-1 that the way she treated that step-daughter raised the bar on evil step-motherhood a few notches.

    Also, one quibble. Sociopaths don’t have the ability to understand other peoples emotions while psychopaths can be very adept at reading emotions. They just don’t feel any empathy. Clearly she is a psychopath.

  7. In addition to a total lack of charisma, Walker, like most of the (non-Trump) candidates, was a complete and wholly-owned subsidiary of his billionaire donors. The latter was painfully transparent when, after a few halting baby steps toward an anti-immigration position, he completely reversed himself after the 1% yanked his choke chain. It was obvious then that he was a kept man.


    September 21, 2015 at 9:08 pm

    • Most of them? ALL of them. They were happy to take the “no third party run” pledge because they all know they are nothing without the backing of the 1% who own the party. All of the lesser minions are happy to play the “torpedo Trump then step aside for Jeb” role, and all of them including Jeb are happy to play the “lose gracefully to the Democrats in the general election” role.


      September 22, 2015 at 11:56 am

  8. Apparently Walkers main problem was overconfidence. He had won 3 contested elections in Wisconsin, a purple state. He was almost acting as his own campaign manager. He did not spend the time to study national issues and gave ill-considered off the cuff answers to questions on issues he had not thought through, then would turn around and try to walk those answers back.

  9. There is nothing wrong with a naturally weird haircut. But why trust someone who is too cheap to get a good haircut? Or who isn’t cheap, but stays loyal to a lousy barber? A real man – one with enough dough to run for president – slips the lousy barber a few hundred a year and ditches the lousy barber for someone who has worked hard to be good at the job.

  10. Is it that weird? It’s the classic regular haircut ( combined with male pattern baldness.

    Actually it seems like his bald spot is enlarged by a scar…


    September 22, 2015 at 12:04 am

    • Is it that weird? No, of course not, But consider this. A large minority of elder male politicians use estrogen to keep themselves from looking bald. The use of estrogen keeps males from acting like themselves; it is as if they had a restart on neotenic childhood; and childhood is correctly associated with foolishness, or, if not foolishness, with an incapacity to protect others in the adult world. Biden, Obama, Edwards, Boehner, John Roberts the judicial Fool, and Newt (to name three on each side, but we all know which side is more guilty of this) incapacitated themselves for real leadership by this route.Looking at Scott Walker’s male pattern baldness, which he could have (with a little less self-respect) prevented with non-estrogen intervention, I see a guy who does not care about how he looks to others. Now, I, like Walker, and I too am a guy who does not really care much about how he looks to others, but I do not seek political office. God bless little Mr Walker for not going the estrogen route, he had done well in life and his wife still respects him, but he has not chosen the route of leadership in this effed up polity. Walker could, in spite of his haircut, have acted like a man who cared deeply about his country. He backed off on too many issues, like a carnie barker who was called out once too often by someone he was afraid of.

    • I see nothing wrong with his hair. It is his protruding ears and odd eyes that make him look goofy.


      September 22, 2015 at 8:30 am

      • His features are patently asymmetrical, and I’m surprised an HBD realist like LIon ever considered him a serious candidate.

        (All people have a degree of facial asymmetry, but the greater the degree, the more likely you are looking at a sub-par intellect and other hereditary issues).
