So glad he can't fake it

My existential fear is that Mr. Trump will realize that all he has to do is "fake it" and lie, act the statesman, and say what he needs to say, and he will win this election. I fear he will realize that doing so won't cost him his base, as his base will welcome it and say, "you know he doesn't mean it, but the libs are making it so he has to say it, but I know he'll do what I want anyway."

So in that context, last night's debate was perfect. Let's have two more just like it.

If this guy ever got the façade skills that an intelligent narcissist has, he'd be deadly. Be thankful he doesn't.

I actually have my reasons for being in favor, which I will get to shortly. But first the story.

Blake Irving on Net Neutrality

Blake Irving, CEO of GoDaddy, sent an open letter to The Honorable Thomas E. Wheeler, Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission.

In short, GoDaddy supports net neutrality. Full stop. It really is that simple. And (full disclosure), as a GoDaddy employee, I'm very pleased to see this. As I've said many times, this isn't the same company people remember from many years ago. Management gets it. In this case, it's the right position and the company is taking it. I continue to confirm that I made the right decision coming to work here.

Now... Mr. Chairman? It's Go Time.
