“That’s Impossible”

Remember how you felt a year ago when you knew, really knew, that Trump would win? This is how I felt.

“He laughs at fear, afraid of nothing, He does not shy away from the sword.  He cannot stand still when the trumpet sounds.”

“Scha·den·freu·de” I…. I…. I wish I knew how to quit you!

    I’m just a crusty old fart, but that clip of the horse race brings tears to my eyes every time. Reminds me of my dogs in a lot of ways. Thanks again for that.

    Oh…I can never get enough of the victory a year ago, either. MAGA!

    I’ll watch this every time it’s posted! Smiling…MAGA

    When asked about how he “manages” then-candidate Trump, Cory Lewandowski replied that it was like riding an exceptional racehorse like American Pharaoh; “You try to rein them in a little tighter in the corners, but in the end you just hang on and let them run.” This Secretariat clip is completely apt. Love it! MAGA!!

    Great clip! It’s perfect for me to show my husband who had to go to bed thinking HRC would win. Finally, he’ll get a sense of how it felt, that evening into night last year, flipping from one corrupt MSM channel to another and watching all the horrible personages lose control of the narrative and be forced to face so many unwelcome truths. So terrible how quickly they recovered and picked up their lying banner and went on the march, but for a moment it was nice. For a moment the MSM felt MAGA too.

    AbigailAdams, thanks for that great Lewendowski quote,

    This will never get old to me. 🙂

    I, too, had gone to bed expecting to learn upon waking, that the assassin who who deliver the coup de grace, double-tap to the American Experiment had been elected. It took me some time to believe that we had been delivered from the consequences of electing a truly malignant, amoral psychopath. Our country has experienced Providential intervention in the past. I consider her (whose name is best left unspoken) loss to be another example of such intervention. I will cherish and hold on to that for the remainder of my days.

    I was more elated that that criminal hor was ousted than Trump had won.
    There isn’t enough punishment on this earth to give that bitch what she deserves.
    For more than half my life I have been loathing those 2 klintin criminals and I almost hate myself for letting them use me that way but I have a better handle on it now.

    I remember watching that race on TV. He won by 22 lengths. Ron Turcotte said in the Derby, he showed Secretariat his whip, but never used it. In the Preakness, he took out his whip but never showed it to Secretariat. In the Belmont, he never even took it out.

    That night a year ago…The New York Times of all places had the best coverage, because they had these meters, one for the nation, and one for each state. The meter showed the percentage likelihood of one or the other winning, and a spread that tightened as results came in. The meter might show Hillary at 60 percent, but Trump still having a chance. As the night went on, those meters started swinging over to Trump, and the spreads kept tightening, getting smaller and smaller on Hillary’s side.

    I had the meters for Ohio, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan and Florida open in different windows. I knew by 9:30 Central time that Trump had won. It took the networks another three hours. I was well asleep by then.

    Why must you make Joan cry?
    Best horse race. Ever. Best horse movie, ever!

    Secretariat and Man O’War did have another colleague, the famous Eclipse.

    “Eclipse, first. The rest, nowhere.”

  • Suburbanbanshee November 11, 2017, 3:22 PM

    Actually, though, both Secretariat and Man O’War were pretty big boys. Eclipse was just a bitty thing. Yet he had ridiculous stamina and speed, as well as bodybuilding strength. Sort of a Justin Morgan version of a Thoroughbred. There’s a reason that pretty much every Thoroughbred today includes him in his or her genealogy.
