–Conservative blogger George Rebane finds merit it the Reconquista theory, the idea that Mexico will reclaim land lost to the U.S. in 1848 “bloodlessly by immigration and out-breeding our European descended whites.” He may want to raise that issue when Jessica Patterson, currently chair of the state Republican Party and a Latina, addresses local Republicans in Auburn next month.
–If the regular commentators at Rebane’s Ruminations put their heads together, they’d have an impressive rock garden.
–Is Donald Trump telling the truth when he says he “loves” Wikileaks or when he says he knows nothing about the outfit? That’s a trick question because Trump never tells the truth.
–Trump keeps insisting his father was born in a “beautiful” part of Germany while all of the evidence suggests he was born in the U.S. I think it’s time for Trump to produce a birth certificate. If it was good enough for Obama, it’s good enough for dear old dad.
–Speaking of Trump’s lying, nobody laid it out better than Robert Mueller.
–Podunk Pelline, the Miss Grundy of local grammarians, is quick to jump on anybody who does something as innocuous as leaving the apostrophe out of “it’s.” Meanwhile, Pelline regular Chip Wilder wrote on Jeffie’s blog April 19 at 6:06 a.m. that Trump is a “cereal liar.” Chipper could give Walt Branson and Todd Juvinall a run for their money when it comes to creative use of the English language in the local blogosphere.
