The Dems are worried that the non-establishment feeling in the air means that they are bleeding votes to the third-party candidates Stein and Johnson (surely they can't both be third-party; doesn't one of them have to be fourth-party?). This did for them once before, when Ralph Nader took Al Gore's votes, so it is a real thing. Also, HRC isn't attracting the younger votes they need. So, it's time to call on Bernie. Expect to see more of him in the next few weeks.

Johnson is making the task of peeling his votes easier than it should be. First there, was the Aleppo thing:



Then he did the tongue thing.

Now, he has demonstrated either his lack of knowledge and/or ability to function under pressure:



If that doesn't convince you not to vote for him, you could take a look at the Libertarians' policies - abolish income tax, state welfare, state pensions, state education, and all regulation on wages, prices, rents, etc. It's up to individuals to make their own arrangements and buy education, health care, etc through the free market from private providers or obtain help from family or charity. No restrictions on free movement or free trade. Leave WTO, NATO and all trade agreements. No controls on drugs. Open immigration. Keep your guns.

Kaymer and Westwood have been Europe's worst two players. So much for picking wild cards with experience. Should have taken Knox and Noren.

In fourballs, player A has taken 4 shots to get to the green, his partner has taken 2.

Is there anything to stop Player A putting his ball to where his partner is positioned and then taking another shot from there to show him the line?


Not very sporting, but yes, is allowed.

American crowds aren't very sporting either.

Too Many Cooks?

There are rumours that the set-up of Trump's debate team is going to be changed, with Chris Christie being put in charge. Steve Bannon has nominally been leading the sessions, but the Donald has generally taken them over. Apparently Christie was "brutally honest" with Trump after the debate and they are thinking of letting him take over the debate prep.

There has been criticism that the sessions so far have been too big, with a dozen people involved when they were all there. Bannon and Christie have been there. In addition, Rudy Giuliani and Jared Kushner have been playing increasingly leading roles in the campaign and the debate prep. Giuliani, ex-Mayor of New York, is half-mad, but he is a fearsome debater. Kushner (Ivanka's husband) is a property and publishing millionaire. He hates Christie, who led an investigation which sent his father to jail, not a good basis for team-building. It has been reported widely that Trump had Christie pencilled in for VP, but had his mind changed by Kushner, so the antipathy is mutual.

David Bossie has been in the meetings. He is yet another nasty piece of work. He worked for Bush Snr in the 92 election but Bush was so appalled at Bossie's attempts to dig the dirt on the Clintons that he not only condemned his "filthy campaign tactics", but filed a legal complaint against him and had George W contact party members to urge them not to assist Bossie. He also has bad history with Gingrich. He has undertaken loads of unbelievable stuff. Some of it is here http://tinyurl.com/jxd4xda, but you could fill a book with what he has done. Of course, that means he is an excellent fit for the team and Trump has appointed him Deputy Campaign Manager.

Laura Ingraham has been involved. I'm not sure to what extent, but she has been there. I suggested back here http://blondepoker.com/forum/index.php?topic=66429.msg2155847;topicseen#msg2155847 that they should bring her into the team and they obviously read this thread, as that is exactly what they did.

Kellyanne Conway has also been there, of course, and Ivanka was at some of them. Also, two other staffers, Steve Miller and Jason Miller, plus two retired generals (wtf?).

That makes up to thirteen people in the room, plus Paul Ryan and Reince Priebus phoning into the meetings, and Roger Ailes winding Trump up in between.

A lot of the problems lay with the candidate, but one issue with the team was that they often didn't agree with each other on the best strategy, before even telling the candidate what he should do. Is that any surprise with so many people? It contrasts with Clinton, who prepared with a group of three or four (plus Bill sometimes).

Maybe Christie can turn it around, if he can get Kushner, Giuliani and Bannon to agree. This is a group with too many leaders. Christie is a busy person, though - he is already in charge of the 'transition team', which is preparing to convert the campaign into an Administration, and is forever fending off the never-ending Bridgegate scandal. He also still has a major State to run (or, he is supposed to be running, still being Governor and all), where there was a major train crash yesterday. If he can find the time and get the backing, he needs to trim the debate team and manage the candidate. I expect Trump has already learnt enough to perform much better next time anyway. If Christie can get the team under control, he might be able to get Trump within closer range of Clinton's level.
