Re: President Trump

Of course Maureen Dowd has always had it out for Hillary, but unfortunately I tend to agree with her in this week's op-Ed.
Is Hillary electable?

Re: TN: 98 La Couspaude [St Emilion]

I think most BDX should generally be consumed between age 10-15


Amen my brother. I recall enjoying that wine in its younger days, even if not unusually profound.

Re: DC '16 Saturday 4/2 Charlie Palmer Steak

I can provide two bottles each of 1996 Pontet Canet and 1996 Lynch Bages. I can also bring a couple bottles of 2005 Dom Perignon if that is of any interest.

Re: President Trump

Take away Viet Nam and Uncle Lyndon was one of the greatest presidents.


Take away the sadistic near decapitations of his wife and her friend and O.J. Simpson was a nice guy.

LBJ was a sick, sadistic man who bordered on insanity.

Re: President Trump

Donald Trump is toast. He may still win NH but Rubio will again do well, far ahead of Jeb. And the governors and Fiorina will be out after SC. And soon it will be down to Cruz and Rubio, and Rubio will win because he will be perceived as more mainstream, even though he is probably the most conservat...

Re: So what have you bought lately?

Did you see the latest thing where one of their employees let them order $25,000 of wine on his credit card? Now he's a creditor. Absolutely unbelievable stuff going on here, there has to be a LOT more to this incredible story. I'm wondering if drugs were involved.
