Tuesday’s coming. Forget political types who belong on parole or are an extension of the Bronx Zoo. You’re an American — in the United States of America — where a person is still allowed to vote!
And we who vote also have the divine right to kvetch.
So, debating Pence, Kamala Harris did something besides scowl. Mentioning Lincoln’s refusal to fill a Chief Justice vacancy just before his 1864 re-election, she said Lincoln thought the voters should decide. Wronggg! The historical fact is, fearing his ambitious opponent Lincoln acted pragmatically. He promised his rival that he, President Abraham Lincoln, would guarantee another could instead fill the vacancy of their recently gone Chief Justice. Salmon Chase thus immediately dropped off running for the highest office. He got appointed Chief Justice right after Honest Abe won. Kamala honey, get things korrect.
Our Constitution requires a census every 10 years. Federal aid and representation in Congress depends on population. New York must provide medical services for illegals, but no federal assistance if not counted in the census. New York’s GOP muscle has disintegrated. For a first in years, Staten Island got a Dem Congressman.
Districts can be gerrymandered — meaning another 10 years before shedding a Dem-controlled Congress. The GOP is hoping devotees vote for all Republican candidates. Donkey Democrats are hoping Joe Biden doesn’t make an ass of himself.
If you don’t like my open mouth — it’s your right. I didn’t always favor whoever was our commander in chief either. Look, Biden’s a nice man. Nothing against him or his wife’s nonfitting wardrobe. Just that I’ve lived through this twice. My husband and my same-age mother both suffered dementia.
Started slow. Then I had to pick my husband up from the floor. Then my mother, and never did I love anyone more, no longer knew who I was. I know what we’re dealing with. It’s not Donald’s personality. It’s Biden’s trajectory. The Democrats should’ve manipulated this differently — not left us with Biden. It isn’t if you don’t like Donald. It’s that you cannot have Biden. In time, he mightn’t be able to run himself — let alone a country. And — excuse me — I did not pick Kamala for president.
New film brings horror
Halloween. For major macabre comes “Freaky,” a “Friday the 13th” type movie. Girl, 17, wakes up in the body of a 50-year-old serial killer. Christopher Landon, who also directed “Happy Death Day 2U,” is behind this beauty.
Vince Vaughn: “I haven’t been in a lot of horror stuff so I liked doing this. I liked the tone of the film.” Right. And Kathryn Newton says her character just wants to go to a homecoming wearing something besides a body bag. Sweet. Maybe they could screen it again Thanksgiving.
Stories of gory moments past
In olden days, when we still partied in costumes: Steve Zahn’s college costume was a briquette. Black plastic bag schmeared with white paint. So nobody’d make a monkey out of what became the “War for the Planet of the Apes” star, he “wore it at the bar and drank all night” … As a kid, Jonathan Lipnicki “got sloshed with greenish death-looking movie makeup. I looked like a vampire” … Henry Winkler’s trick-or-treat was to open the door and give his Fonzi imitation. He considered it a treat. Others called it a trick.
Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art in North Adams did a “Grave Matters” exhibit. Focused on burial plots of famous thinkers such as Herman Melville, James Joyce, Virginia Woolf. I’m hearing the soil, retrieved from each grave, was handed out as a creepy keepsake. Nice. Beats cheap candy.
Have respect, who else but Madam Adams — only in New York, kids, only in New York — could tell you these things?
