    Some people keep their egos in a bottom drawer
    A fridge full of Leonard Cohen
    Have to get drunk just to walk out the door
    Stay drunk to keep on goin'
    So if you got an ego
    You better keep it in good shape
    Exercise it daily
    And get it down on tape

    Ego is not a dirty word

    Trump denies it, though he does concede it's a good idea.

    Sophistication signallers making a big deal of clumsy public speech. I'm sure Trump knows the difference between WWI and WWII, as do the rest of us. Why fixate on gaffes? Probably because the ones doing the criticising owe their entire public existence to the aesthetics of speech rather than the content.

    The people who are best at thinking aren't necessarily the best at speaking. This is because speech must be linear whereas reality consists of effectively infinite interconnections of ideas. It's why a picture tells a thousand words.

    It comes down to whether you want politicians who are figureheads or ones who get shit done. Looks like plenty would prefer career politicians, who are essentially professional actors, playing the role of public speakers at press conferences.

    Do you believe he thinks the world war in 1917 was the second one? It was obvious what he meant. Smartarses carrying on about this shit are like little kids who want to correct you when you refer to lunch as dinner.
    You think it would've been fewer under a different president? What proof do you have? How do you explain the disparity between states? Do you think the states with the highest death rates have the worst leadership? Nuffies love a scapegoat. You probably think Dan Andrews brought COVID to Melbourne.

    Trump isn't good at either. Even his biggest fans wouldn't call him a 'thinker'.

    He isn't even that good at 'getting shit done'. He is too irrational and inconsistent to ever see anything through properly.

    Completely understand why he has been voted in and wouldn't be surprised if, despite some of the recent media he gets voted in again.

    Also understand that some of the commentary about him has been childish and appears obsessed with trying to find a 'gotcha' moment.

    But he has helped create that environment so I don't have any sympathy for him in the least.

    His team has been very successful in reinforcing the us vs them scenario and to plant the seed of secret forces behind things. Unbelievably merkins lap that shit up.

    Agree that it's entirely feasible that he will be returned.
