I Hold This Truth To Be Self Evident
Still not going political, really. Just an observation which reminds me of one of my greatest failures that I allegedly 'won'.
High school theatrics. Putting on "The Thurber Carnival" ala James Thurber whom I still read on occasion.
There's a soliloquy that runs about ten minutes, and at tryouts I couldn't believe how my castmates stunk up the place. Like a moron, I did the best I could... but I had more enthusiasm than talent.
Oh, I 'won' the part...and stunk up the stage every night.
I know, I know-the Democratic field is strong, every one of them a champion of the common pee-pul.
I think they are all sandbagging. Playing to lose so that History doesn't record them as another Millard Fillmore. Don't know him? My point.
