Moose and Squirrel





Those of you who are of a certain age will know where the phrase "Moose and Squirrel" comes from. If you were unfortunate enough never to watch Bullwinkle and Rocky, the phrase is uttered by the Russian spy on that show, Boris Badenov. He had a sidekick called Natasha. He was a pretty funny character during the Cold War.  Maybe Trump could adopt him as a campaign mascot.

Just when you think Trump's campaign can't become a bigger clown show than it already is (and a sinister clown show, too), Trump has asked Russia to hack into Hillary Clinton's emails.  His campaign clowns tried to cover Trump's rear with a barrage of excuses ("He was just joking").  Can you imagine what would have happened to anyone else in ANY political position if they said that?   Congressman David Cicilline has requested that President Obama withhold any classified information from Trump in the interest of national security.

Yes: a candidate for the President of the United States has, in essence, called for an allegiance with Russia to spy on an opponent.  There have been suggestions of treason (I think it is), high-ranking officials speaking out strongly and harshly against Trump, and now a call for withholding classified information from him, to protect the security of the United States.

This guy should really go down in history as someone who had to have his Presidential nomination stripped in the interest of preserving the safety of our country.

In the meantime, the folks at DailyKos have helpfully designed a new Trump campaign logo.
