a blast from the past, the third week of october 1986 i i r c , as always as current as today's headlines:
back in the day did any of his critics amongst democrats &c think they might actually *miss* reagan?

Just Another Movie
Timbuk3

Presidential elections are planned distractions
To divert attention from the action behind the scenes
like a game of chess when the house is a mess
Or a petty money squabble when your marriage is in trouble
Or a football game when there's rioting in the streets
It's just another movie, another song and dance
Another poor sucker who never had a chance
It's just another captain going down with his ship
Just another jerk, taking pride in his work
I was a poor magician; I could never understand
You can't make tears disappear through sleight of hand
From the bottom of my heart -- off the top of my head
Words were pulled like rabbits from a hat but nothing was said
Now my freedom's bought and paid for -- it lights up my living room
I got nothing more to prove; I've got no reason to move
And when I'm tired of the program -- when it's taken it's toll
I can press a button, change the channel by remote control

"Wisconsin Will Get More Attention This Time
Hillary Clinton made many mistakes in 2016, but one of the worst was not even setting foot once in Wisconsin. The state has been blue for decades, so Clinton took it for granted—and lost by 23,000 votes (0.7%). If she had made a single visit to the University of Wisconsin at Madison, with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in tow, and made a case to the 44,000 students and thousands of staff members there, she might have won the Badger State.

The Democrats aren't going to make that mistake again. They are already campaigning there. On Friday, Beto O'Rourke went to Madison to talk to the students. On Saturday, Sen. Amy Klobuchar (DFL-MN) showed up in Eau Claire, WI. Expect all the other Democratic candidates to visit the state many times this year. They will all go before the Wisconsin primary to show the voters that unlike Clinton, they think Wisconsin is important.

The candidates will also visit Michigan and Pennsylvania—two other traditionally blue states that Clinton lost—many times between now and their respective primaries. The winner is certain to show up in all three many times during the general election campaign as well. (V)"
