|I don't know about those high heels|
I know it's Easter Sunday, but as that radical theologian, Joe Cocker, once said, "Let's don't get all hung up over Easter." Or maybe it was, "Let's not all be hung over on Easter." Whatever. The thing is, on this holiest of all Christian holidays, when many are celebrating the idea of ressurection and new life, and the joy of life, it seems somehow not totally inappropriate that the newspapers front pages are all plastered with stories, if not images of MelaniaTrump in her birthday suit.
I mean, how much less appropriate are thoughts of naked Melania, sex, the acts that give rise to new life than those weird little yellow chicken things they sell for Easter baskets and the dyed unfertilized chicken eggs we all search for?

Anyway, I'm really loving this Presidential campaign.
You got to hand it to Donald Trump for planting those nude photos of his wife and blaming Ted Cruz: He did get past all the political correctness and to the heart of what this campaign is really all about.
As anyone who watches "House of Cards" and has become a fan of the Russian President depicted in that series, we all know what politics is really about and that's sex, desire and seduction. I mean, that scene in the study in Germany between Claire and the Russian was just so TENSE! You just knew at any moment he was going to rip off all her clothes and she would put up token resistance before taking the top position and forcing him to sign the damn oil drilling agreement, and there would be some silly puns about his capacity for drilling. I know all that was written and performed, but, obviously, Netflix executives chickened out and could not bring themselves to include it in the family TV series which shows President Underwood hallucinating sex with Zoe as he is about to leave this world. What else would he be hallucinating about?
Have I digressed?
No, I was talking about what 2016 is really about. Claire and Petrov are every bit as real as the Donald and Melania for most voters.
Look, the real issue in this campaign is: Who would you like to think about in the Lincoln bedroom in the White House? Now, Melania Trump, that stirs some dry roots with Spring rain, right there.
It's an open secret what really drives those Aryan Nation boys in Idaho and Wyoming crazy is the idea of a Black couple spending nights in the WHITE House, in same bed where the Great Emancipator once slept. Although, now that you mention it, wouldn't you think they'd like that idea?
I don't know. Really, I don't.

But, anyway, I like the idea of voting for the First Lady first. Of course, in Bill Clinton's case, he would be the first man. I cannot speak to this, but I will rely on my extensive female readership to comment on whether Bill does for you what Melania does for most heterosexual men. If so, then we've got a match.
Actually, this opens up a whole new set of possibilities. Memo to Bernie: Leak the photos of your liaison with Megyn Kelly. You don't have to be actually married to the lady or even actually having an affair; it's enough to just set the scene in the brains of the multitudes. Bernie and Megyn, you know. (And, just for the record, any woman who spells her name "Megyn" is just asking for it.)
|Bernie: Memo to Donald: Eat your heart out|
This is all a very healthy trend in openness, transparency and if the Republican leadership had only gone there first, why then, we'd be seeing Paul Ryan in the White House in 2017. And may yet.

Hey, so what does Paul Ryan's wife look like naked?
