YOU-WE-WON!Fishermen try their luck in June Lake.
Watch dog groups and the political press have calculated that despite the billions spent on obnoxious advertising, it had little or no affect on how we voted.

Chump #1 ---Sherman Adelson, the casino magnate who dumped millions including on Newt Gingrich. The New York Times reports he spent tens of millions on 8 candidates, all of whom lost.
THE BIGGEST JACK ASS
I'm surprised a New Yorker has not flattened this idiot's nose. His team of body guards are effective. His latest tirade, including calls for a "revolution" make him the number one candidate for western civilization's most egotistical fool.
He's a con man and hustler who NBC should drop after his latest temper tantrum. NBC Anchor Brian Williams made note of Trump's tweets on election night.
"Donald Trump, who has driven well past the last exit to relevance and peered into something closer to irresponsible here, is tweeting tonight"
Maybe the Peacock network could stage an ultimate fighting match between the two.
I offer these thoughts realizing they may provoke a firestorm of response as did yesterday's post.
He was a shape shifter. A true moderate by Massachusetts standards who posed as a conservative to win the Republican nomination. Then he tried to shift back to the center and may be the only candidate in modern history who can claim a 360 degree position on every issue.
Insular, self confident, trash talking in hoops cocky, and smugly detached from those he disdains. Extraordinarily bright and professorial but his disdain for the kind of one on one salesmanship or "backslapping" helpful in the job has diminished his power. Think of his personal style vis a vis Reagan or Clinton.
He's a great speech maker and had an incredible political organization. Now he needs to demonstrate an adroit use of power to guide "the ship of state through the shoals." He needs to stretch himself.
