Yesterday, my opponent made it official. He is no longer considering running for President Of The United States.
Let’s face it, for a campaign run by an unknown candidate with no budget and very little staff, things went very well for those of us involved in the Omawarisan campaign. Together, you and I drove a candidate with limitless resources and name recognition from the race for president. It only took one month and one day. I got in the race on April 15th, Trump got out on May 16th. Congratulations and thank you to all of you for this accomplishment.
As expected, he chose not to acknowledge the role of my campaign in his decision to step aside. In a move even more upsetting to me, he chose not to acknowledge the zeal and enthusiasm of my supporters. I think we’re all disappointed by that, but not surprised.
Because he chose not to mention my campaign, I am going to analyze his downfall and expose him for the failure he is.
What Went Right In The Omawarisan Campaign?
I think the thing that put us over the top in this election was the fact that I had a slogan and Donnie boy did not. My slogan…
He’s Not Nearly The Tool Don Is. Read the rest of this entry »
A few weeks ago, I declared myself a candidate for President of the United States against Donald Trump. Though I have no money to spend on my campaign and have gotten no television exposure, my opponent is feeling the effects of my candidacy. Let’s analyze what we see, shall we?
Trump – Inescapable
Since my announcement, Trump has been even more of a presence in the news.
He held a press conference at which he announced that he is proud of himself. Who actually says out loud “I am proud of myself”? Your mom says she is proud of you. Other people can be proud of you. Saying you’re proud of yourself is like giving yourself a nickname, it just isn’t done. Despite this moment of self congratulations, Trump’s approval started sliding.
Last week Prince declared the internet dead. The direct quote is that the net is “completely over”.
Interesting. Before last week, if you’d have asked me if Prince was alive or dead, I’d have picked dead.
I Believe, Sir, We Had An Agreement
I know there are no firm, written rules on this, but I hope we can all agree that up until this point there was an unspoken social more regarding declaring a phenomenon dead. The expectation, if you intended to declare something dead (or “over”) has been that you must be culturally relevant. People thinking you’re dead is not really an indicator that you’ve maintained relevance.
Milli Vanilli apparently recognizes this expectation of relevance. When is the last time you heard either of those guys trying to decide for the rest of us what is “dead”. They respect society too much to do something like that. Prince apparently does not have that level of respect for you. Read the rest of this entry »
From deep in the iPod comes the cover song of the month. This month brings a stunning combination, the Talking Heads classic Burning Down The House as rendered by Tom Jones.
Yes, that Tom Jones. Read the rest of this entry »
Less than a month ago, I wrote about Larry King getting divorced.
Earlier this month when I posted the video of Don Ho’s cover of the Peter Gabriel song, Shock The Monkey, I got quite a bit of reaction. Some of the reaction was good, others were scarred by their exposure to the song.
I thought about it and realized there is quite a bit of cover music living in my i-Pod that needs to get out into the world. So I decided to add, as a regular feature here on Blurt, The Cover Song of the Month. Once a month, I’ll post a new song for you to hear, comment on and answer a poll question about.

The fridge is slowly dying. For years, it has made strange noises. It groans audibly in the night. Without warning, it makes a loud cracking sound. Neither of these things are particularly endearing, especially late at night.
We are considering pulling the plug.
There was an ad in Sunday’s paper for a refrigerator that seemed a particularly good buy. While we were out the other day, we stopped to look it over, as if we could tell something about it by doing so. Read the rest of this entry »
Regular readers of this blog know that there is something about feeling like I’m being lied to by someone I think is running a hoax that pushes my buttons. I guess it is a little of that “are you stupid enough to think I’m as stupid as you are” feeling that just sets me on edge… see my post on the Meteor Boy for example.
What is hot in the news right now is the whole Balloon Boy situation. My buttons have been pushed.
Let’s look at something, shall we? Read the rest of this entry »
