Rand Paul is troubling to us, in the main, because he is so melancholic, so lugubrious, so serious, so boring.
We’re Republicans, we are supposed to just laugh at everything.
I’m disappointed in your Bob Rubin.~~ Living in any hotel for 6 years really redefines the term lack of imagination, be it at The Jefferson or no.
Another Cabinet guy I knew who lived at Jefferson was Bill Smith, Reagan’s AG, or at least his wife did.
Smith’s wife, Jean-Jean, was an absolute scream.
She would spend most of her day shopping at Saks or behind the red door at Elizabeth Arden and having luncheon with her girlfriends and I was, for a time, her “minder”..swell job, really tops.
When we would get back to the Jefferson in the AG’s limo, the Post reporters used to jump all over Jean-Jean for using hubbie’s car to go shopping and she would laugh and wave and say:
“Oh, shoo, shoo you..if you little Jew girls really want to complain about something, complain about what your hairdresser did to your hair.”
Of which, Mrs. Reagan wouldn’t even get her hair done in “this awful, dreadful, city,” she would fly home to have it done or fly the boy who took care of her hair out here..and she had it done 3 times a week….she detested Washington.
Bill Smith himself was scream of a different sort..a close personal friend of the President, Smith was the most absentee cabinet secretary I’ve ever known–he was literally NEVER here–he lived in California and played golf at his club all day.
Pestered by reporters that he was the AG and that Justice is at Washington, Bill Smith would just laugh, he would always just laugh at anything anybody asked him.
He did once say that his:
“Singular job was to do what the President wants done and to have his underling’s at Justice undo everything that Carter had done”….
Not a bad position to take come to think of it and one that has been followed by all subsequent AG’s and most assuredly will be followed by our next one..although he’ll have to be a tad more involved than Bill Smith as there is:
SO much undoing:
To be undone.
I can’t wait until my Party is back in power…
We just laugh at everything.
Apropos of this living in hotels business, I’ll say that some rich guys have always liked to live in hotels…for instance, Jean Paul Getty, the oilman, a bit before your time, had mansions all over the world but somehow chose to mainly live in hotels.
Likewise Howard Hughes and Coco Channel.
The old Jefferson hotel used to be rather nice….great place for breakfast and out of the way..quietly elegant….relaxing…I understand it’s now a sort of tacky rich…
Yes, that’s what a friend called the new Jefferson the other day..
“Tacky rich, very Jewish.”

He says out loud what many people think deep down, and what the politicians refrain from saying because they are either too demagogic or too chicken. Le Pen, with all his faults and qualities, is probably the only one who thinks about the interests of France before his own."~~ French actor~~Alain Delon

Well, you got a point about Rand. He’s a sort of Libertarian Stalin or Tea Party Hitler, perhaps… all grind, and no bump. The bed-sheet crew like him a lot, though. My fear is when the far left get out of hand, the far right is just a tad behind schedule. Not a good thing… and Rand might be the same-but-opposite kind of ruse we got the last time??
There isn’t much question that the country is prime for a right wing overthrow…no question about it. That type of power grab would typically not come from my Party which is more of the lazy scotch/soda brigade…but a radical leader can use either of the existing Parties to take over if the national mood is right…and it is..it is….I think more of a George Wallace type, who was technically a Democrat…but a far more hard core version of Wallace….the people want that…they really hate this city…and I can see the reason why they hate this city every day.
Our last living relative, our last Matriarch, has lately declared things are not unlike pre-WWII Hungary, where everyone she knew seemed to be open and gay and cosmopolitan on a personal level, but behind all that lurked hard-right and hard-left troubles like a pressure cooker.
Very much like Wiemar Germany…and all over West Europe…very cosmopolitan times…very much–but the lynch pin that brought Hitler to power and also spread other forms of socialism was the Depression–add one of those to our troubles…and one is not far off…. and it’s lights out–nobody in this city will know what hit them.
Perhaps our buddy decided to try save the economy for the short term while he unleashed all the essential ingredients. Then prick the balloon. That would make our national real estate listing look like one helluva foreclosed mansion. How appropriate, considering…
Well, i hope we pull something out our behinds… soon.
Oh, I’m sure Sambo has it figured that he will skate clean away and hand the new Republican President a lit hand grenade on swearing in day in 2017. To avoid my Party being pulverized by the ensuing carnage we have to be in this election something that is not innate to politicians…we have to be honest with the people. Turing around the carnage wrought by Sambo’s antics will hurt and take time…when Reagan came in there was a terrible 2 years recession after Carter’s 4 year rampage in the economy, a rampage that will be as nothing compared to the aftermath of 8 years of Sambo. My Party must tell the people that it is going to hurt badly to rectify that situation…we have to be honest with the voters…will we be honest….of course not…and the blade will fall on our heads..and it should for not being straight up with the people….either way, Sambo skates away clean as a whistle….unless something that can’t be rigged, some force of economic nature, breaks loose before January 20, 2017.
