"The central doctrine of Christianity, then, is not that God is a bastard. It is, in the words of the late Dominican theologian Herbert McCabe, that if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you."--Terry Eagleton

"It is impossible for me to say in my book one word about all that music has meant in my life. How then can I hope to be understood?--Ludwig Wittgenstein

Even visiting the White House would be too close to the Oval Office


The self-described master of business and overall very intelligent person, speaks:

“You can't believe anything you see," he said Tuesday. "I don't even believe the polls. I see these polls and they’re not terrible. They’re sort of good. Actually if the people come out and vote, they’re very nervous. I have a feeling this is another Brexit.”

“Let’s say we’re tied, then how come we have thousands and thousands of people, thousands and thousands?” Trump asked his supporters.

As Charlie Pierce used to say:  "This close to English."  "Actually if they people come out and vote, they're very nervous."  Is that a machine generated statement, or an utterance by someone who's native language is not English?

And then there's the argument that Trump will win because "we have thousands and thousands of people."  Voter turnout in 2012 was just over 129 million persons.  "Thousands and thousands" would put you somewhere behind Jill Stein this year.

You can't make this stuff up.

I'm beginning to wonder if English is Trump's first language.
