      Good afternoon Redskins fans!  I have once again been invited to sit in the relative comfort of the press box and shout my thoughts into the void via this blog.  As you watch the game today and see the rain  pour relentlessly from the heavens, know that I am safe and dry.  Know also that @Spaceman Spiff is out there somewhere, cold and unappreciated, rolling around in the muck trying to capture that perfect picture.  Maybe say a little prayer for his health (or laugh, whatever, I’m not judging you).  Also, be sure not to miss the pictures he posts on this site after each game.     
       
      Before we get into today's Redskins game, I want give some thanks for more positive occurrences in DC sports.  Congrats to the Washington Mystics for winning their first championship.  Congrats go out to the Washington Nationals as well for reaching the world series.  These two teams (along with the Caps) are working hard to change the sports related mood around this town, and we're all happier for it. 
       
      Lets move now into less cheerful topics, namely your Washington Redskins!  Yow know things are going bad, and I mean really dang bad, when your team has gone through three quarterbacks and two coaches and your not even half way through the season.  Today's fresh hell comes in the form of a specter of the our recent past coming to smirk at our misfortune.  Im talking of course of Kyle.  Kyle's spent the week assuring everyone that he isn’t holding a grudge, while very obviously holding a grudge.  “Everything else.”  You know what I’m talking about. 
       
      If all he brought to town were his hurt feelings we wouldn’t have a problem.  Sadly, he’s arrived with an undefeated football team that the NFL says we have to play this week.  This feels entirely unfair. 
       
      My generic key to the game:  Run the ball and stop the run.  The team (spoiler alert: 49ers) that does this today will win.

      1st Quarter Update
      Redskins 0 – 0 49ers
       
      Callahan wasn’t playing around when he said he wanted to run the ball.  That first drive was all runs, and looked great... right up until they tried to pass the ball.  Hopkins missed the relatively short fied goal, because of course he did.     

      Maybe Quinn isn’t a good choice to be returning punts?  Consider it.    
       
      That second Redskins drive looked more like what we’ve come to expect from this offense.  Run for negative yards, pass dropped, and an unsuccessful screen pass.  A quintessential Redskins three and out. 

      Passing yards this quarter:  Redskins 3. 49ers 9.  Are you not entertained?! 
       
      Half Time Update
      Redskins 0 – 0 49ers 
       
      How happy are you to spend your Sunday afternoon watching this game?  Consider that some people paid money, to sit in a poncho, in the rain, to watch this game. 
       
      It’s now time for those half time adjustments that our beloved skins do so well.  It’s unlikely the second half mirrors the first. 
       
      3rd Quarter Update 
      Redskins 0 – 3 49ers  
       
      Good news, this game will not end in a 0-0 tie.  Those half time adjustments have kicked in as expected and the 49ers have found a way onto the scoreboard in this messy throwback game.  The Redskins have decided to spend the second half collecting holding penalties and sadness.  Mercifully, only one quarter remains. 
       
      End of Game Update 
      Redskins 0 – 9 49ers 
       
      Callahan hasn’t spent much time as the head coach of the Washington Redskins, but he’s already proven that his team can waste 2nd half timeouts like a veteran.  It makes little sense to adopt a strategy that shortens the game when your team is losing, and it makes even less sense when your team is short on time outs.  I’m not really sure what the thinking as late in this game.    
       
      Next week Kirk Cousins!

Elecciones Presidenciales 11/3/2020- Meltdown Manchild Donny vs Superplanner Lizzie & some other Dems

The only way a third party hurts Trump is if a right wing candidate eats into Trump's base of support.  That's the only way Trump could be hurt by a third party candidate.

People vote third party because they want to protest the candidate they are expected to vote for and/or because they think that candidate will win anyway.

 

Trump isn't winning or losing based on third party candidates. It's not worth worrying about.

I voted third party where I could in 2004, 2008, 2012 and 2016. I don't believe either party serves the interests of the majority of Americans.  Voted Dem in 2018 and will in 2020 but will return to my third party ways in 2022. If firmly believe we need a third and maybe even 4th party or just have independents instead.

Makes not a single bit of sense 

 

Me or Beto? He should be running for Senate and get out of the race for POTUS.

I think all third party candidates benefit Trump. Even someone like Hogan. 

I wish we could have an up or down recall vote for Trump.

He could just bail-out Exxon/Mobil.  I mean, it wouldn't be the craziest thing he did on any given day.

As August winds down, we are getting close to the Presidential race getting serious.  After Labor Day, more voters will actually start paying attention. Especially, in the early primary states.  We are only 5 months away from those early primary/caucus states.  The serious campaigns will be hiring more people and have their people fanning out to those early states.

 

Time for a new look at the race, with the remaining candidates:

 

The real contenders- These candidates are most likely to be on the primary/caucus ballots

Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren , Bernie Sanders, Pete Buttigieg &  Kamala Harris

 

The also rans- These candidates could be on the ballot next year but they need do do better this fall:

Cory Booker, Amy Klobuchar, Beto O’Rourke & Julian Castro   -  If they don't show movement after the Sept. & Oct. debates; their candidacies are probably over before Thanksgiving.

 

On Life Support:

Kirsten Gillibrand - it's possible she could drop out soon.  She isn't going to qualify for the September debate but she probably try to make the October debate.  If she doesn't qualify for the October debate, I expect her to drop out then.

 

The delusional

John Delaney - he has little support & is out of step with today's Democratic party. He's independent wealthy, so he can stay in as long as he wants to waste his money.  He really just needs to drop out.

Andrew Yang - Interesting idea.  He's not going anywhere.  He's in the Sept. & Oct. debates. He's got money. So, he'll probably run as long as he wants to. 

Tulsi Gabbard - stop winning about debate criteria. You're a loon & a Syrian/Russian puppet.  If she doesn't qualify for the October debate, she's probably done then.

Marianne Williamnson - She provides some interesting quotes but she isn't qualifying for the September debate. If she doesn't qualify for the October debate, she's probably done. 

Tim Ryan - he needs to follow the lead of the others who dropped out & just drop out. He won't be making anymore debates.

Joe Sestak - He's barely running. He just needs to drop out.

Bill de Blasio - They are real progressives in this race. Why is he still running.  My guess, he's done in October; when he fails to make that debate.

Steve Bullock- he should be running for Senate instead.  My guess, he's gone in October; when he doesn't qualify for that debate.

Tom Steyer- He may qualify for September's debate. He only needs one more poll.  This is an ego trip. He'll probably run until he gets tired of burning his money.

 

I still think Elizabeth Warren will be the nominee. I think Joe Biden will implode.  There's still way to many Dems running but I don't think the field will drastically shrink until after the October debate deadline.

 

The GOP 

Bill Weld - he's not going to beat Trump. I read an article where their were rumblings that Mark Sanford, Jeff Flake and John Kasich are thinking about it; depending on what happens between now and the end of the year.  They are all delusional.  Noone will beat Trump.  Could they do what Buchanan did in 92 against Papa Bush & do well enough in New Hampshire where they weaken Trump? Will those who don't like Trump be willing to register a protest vote, in large enough numbers?  Stay tuned.   I don't see this happening because any candidate that runs and weakens Trump; will be forever blamed if Trump loses in 2020. Their GOP career would be over.

He would if it was Kasich.

 

But I agree with you. Based on what is actually going to happen in the real world, it’s not worth worrying about. Ain’t gonna happen.

It's a shame Trumps stain on Haley will never go away, I really like her.

Everyone associated with Trump is stained forever, they can't shake that stain.
