Re: President Trump

I had the same impression Jim, He started strong and controlled. She baited him a few times and after 15-20 minutes he was ranting. That went on a good 20-30 minutes, then he calmed a bit and her responses got a bit snoozy even for me. But he went off the rails again towards the end and she blasted ...

I didn't see bias. Holt reigned in Trump more than Clinton because Trump was out of control, non-responsive.

Tied in CO and PA. Bad. Very bad. I'm getting very concerned that this sociopath will actually win. A few months ago I thought the second sentence of this Mencken quote was funny. But the first sentence and the very real prospect of a Trump presidency has me truly afraid for our country for the fir...

A variety of Haut Bailly and Gruaud Larose vintages are on offer from HDH. Not sure if any are screaming deals - haven't checked WSPro.

Re: 66x Parker 100-Pointers from Bordeaux 1947-2010 tasted blind

Thanks for the report. I've had a few of these and for the most part agree with your TNs, though I found the 1986 Lafite and Mouton much more enjoyable than you did. Not meager or charmless at all, whether I've had them blind or not. Could be I've got a broader range of tolerance for tannin. To my p...

Re: Backfilling the 90's

If money were no object I'd go after 1990 left bank wines. But quality and hype (deserved IMO) have driven prices way up, and I'd also have concerns about provenance as highly collectibles may change hands frequently. For more affordable options that check my palate's boxes I would look at 1996 left...

Unusual is not a disqualifier. No one running for President is usual. But health wise, it seems that there are logical non-life-threatening explanations for all of these.

Interesting take on the Obama/Clinton primary race. I do agree that Obama ran circles around Clinton. I thought the Obama team was just as dirty, but much more skilled at having surrogates slip in the knives without the candidate having to look dirty.
