Out of the Past

Whenever we see someone caught in a maelstrom, we always look to help.  It’s just one of the things we do.  And we also always look back in time to see if someone else who faced a similar situation, could give guidance to the embattled of today.  So here’s some advice to those facing the storm.

For Roy Moore Senate Candidate in Alabama try saying this.  “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.”  He might want to add.  “Or that one, or that one or that one either.”

For Kim Jong-un.  Try this one from Winston Churchill.  “We will fight on the beaches.  We will fight in the fields.  We will fight in the streets…”  He might want to update it a little too.  “We will fight in the Malls.  We will fight on Twitter.  We will never surrender.”

For President the Donald Himself when dealing with Kim Jong-un, he might want to take a page out of former Russian Premier Nikita Khrushchev’s book and bang his shoe on the table while screaming.  “We will bury you!”

For Kevin Spacey, “I did not have sexual relations with that boy. “  And, he might also want to add.  “Or that boy, or that boy or that boy either.”

And George H.W. Bush has just had a sixth accuser come forward and claim he grabbed her ass.  Seems ole George the 1st used to like to take a hold of le derriere of a young girl, from time to time.  Well maybe a little more often than from time to time.  But his people have said he’s ninety three years old, confined to a wheelchair and his arms tend to drop when posing for pictures with people.  But that’s not going to work, as the latest accuser said this happened back in 2003 when George the 1st was a spry, young seventy nine years old and still standing on his own two feet.  There’s a picture of it too.  So his people might want to try and have him invoke LBJ.  “I will not seek and I will I not accept the nomination of my party for another term as your President.”  Everyone will assume he has Alzheimer’s or dementia.

And, Vladimir Putin who is not embattled at all, as it seems anyone who complains too loudly about him dies of uranium poisoning.  And, he also seems to be President for life over there.  But still, it might a good idea if he also took off his shoe, banged it on the table and screamed “We will bury you!”  Just for old time’s sake.

    I’m just worried Boy Roy is going to drop out of the race in a few minutes, because I wrote my Thursday piece on him. Wish me luck!

  • Richard the IVth, I know the feeling. But sometimes it can work to your advantage. A few articles back I had Kim Jong-un say he wouldn’t bomb Guam. Then the next day he says he’s not going to bomb Guam. So I just added it to the article. You could add something like, ‘After reading an advanced copy of this article he dropped out’. Good luck.

  • From OUT OF THE PAST (the 1947 film noir classic): “You like me because you could use me.” –Robert Mitchum.
    It could just as well have been said by any of those girls/women to the guys who forced themselves on their victims.

  • Way to go Muse! Robert Mitchum, Jane Greer and a young Kirk Douglas. I didn’t think anyone would get the connection. They did sort of a remake of it called ‘Against All Odds’ with Jeff Bridges, Rachel Ward and James Woods. The plot was similar but it was different enough not to make a comparison and enjoyable in its own right. One of the smart things they did was cast Jane Greer in the movie as Rachel Ward’s Mom.

    Well, several things emerge from the post and comments here. Don, as always, is right on top of the latest goings-on. Ricardo, ditto, but with his inimitable brand of satire. Muse–you do know your nostalgic trivia from “out of the past.” I always come away with fresh insights from reading you all! 🙂


  • Mark,

    That is why this site is unique and should be everyone’s first choice of the day. This and nyuge.com. We go where the rest of the so called media fears to tread and we tell it like it is. I know the correct term is telling it as it is but the late great Howard Cosell coined it and we’re sticking with it.
