Sunday Morning Post (V.1; #10): Happy Birthday, Doris Day!


Okay, it’s been a rough week for liberals.  The Mueller Report was released and a 4-page summary by AG William Barr has given everyone the impression that the President did not commit any crimes.  The left has been wringing their hands that no smoking gun was found.  Meanwhile, the sight of the President gloating at a rally in Michigan (post-release of the summary of the Mueller Report) was nauseating.

Will this man ever reach the emotional maturity of a six-year-old?  I’m not holding my breath.

At the same time, a few commentators – Marc A. Thiessen of The Washington Post and Christine Flowers of The Philadelphia Inquirer — have scolded the left for acting so disappointed that Mueller did not call the President out as a traitor. They say we should be grateful that the President is not a traitor.

This would be all well and good if there wasn’t widely broadcast videotape evidence of the President calling on Russia to release e-mails that would damage his opponent’s chances of becoming the first women elected President.

Proof of treason?  Perhaps not found yet, but the release of the Mueller Report is only the end of the first act.  No smoking gun yet, but we need to allow that branch of the government (i.e., Congress) who are Constitutionally-appointed to serve as the check to the powers of the Executive Branch to do their investigative work.  As I recall, l the smoking gun in Watergate wasn’t found until Congress investigated Nixon’s misdeeds.  It will most likely unfold the same way this time.

As the President might say, “Just watch!”

So, fellow liberals, let us take heart that the investigation is far from over and hopefully will end with as little trauma as possible to our national psyche.  We should adopt a more philosophical stance towards all this if nothing else than to prevent whatever is left of our sanity from spilling out as we foam with moral outrage.  We should take counsel in the wise words of Doris Day: “Que Sera Sera.” *

Ms. Day will be having another birthday this week.  It would be impolite to publish her exact age, but suffice it to say she is well north of 90.  I am including a video tribute of, arguably, her greatest hit.  My parents chose this song as their song, and it served them well through the years.


So be of good cheer.  Whatever will be, the best will be.

*Holy hard left turn segue, Batman!!

(Thank you for reading.  Thank you, Ms. Day.)

Might come back later re Mueller but just got to register thanks for posting the totally DIVINE Miss Day, one of my biggest heroines (or does one say 'heros' these days?), helped enormously for me by her care for and rescue of neglected and/or suffering animals, But even beside the many personal hardships she's had to endure throughout her very long life she was never less than a beacon - no, a floodlight - of hope and compassion, qualities more needed than ever in this current crazy political climate. She's brought us so much sunshine, bless her. Wish I could think of an obvious successor to carry on her work through example.

Apart from "que sera sera" just remember as well: "it ain't over 'til it's over."

I can't say it as well as Raybeard (who can?) but I adore Doris Day! My favorite song, though, is Secret Love. I will sit through the whole gaudy cheesiness of Calamity Jane, just for that song (and Howard Keel, naturally).

I think it is all rather depressing and a sign Orangeman wins no matter what.

Thank you Raybeard. Yes, we need Ms. day more than ever now.

Well put, Debra!

I'm amazed that this song is in the middle of a Hitchcock film, Deedles.

Courage, Spo, courage!

Thank you Bob. Yes, this may be our next best hope.
