After reading the full-page ad in Sunday's Gazette accosting Sen. Jon Tester and the Democratic Party, several things crossed my mind: Is this guy really serious? Has he considered our favorite president's international shenanigans regarding his best friend V. Putin, NATO, our other allies, the assault on the press (First Amendment — heard of it?), the FBI, our intelligence agencies? The sacred Admiral Ronnie Jackson, the most unqualified candidate ever proposed to run the VA and now under investigation by the Pentagon for said failures?
Then I thought, "Wait a minute, what kind of dumb ass would sign his name to something like this?" He must have lots more money than brains. I can't believe a sane Texan would put his real name on this, although there have been some pretty goofy ideas coming from our second largest state. No, "Dr. Gelman" must reside in St. Petersburg, Russia, hidden away in the depths of the GRU office there. Maybe he's Trump's 400-pound loner sitting in front of his computer in the basement, idly spending huge amounts of oligarch rubles hand-over-fist purchasing full page ads in our newspapers to influence our voters' decisions. Spasibo, "Dr. Gelman."
