Dem Voters, don't dispair: Hillary's not your girl in 2016.

I feel kind of sorry for Democrat voters looking forward to the 2016 election.

It's not that they're going to lose. There's so much corruption in the voting process now that the only way they could lose is if there's an overwhelming backlash vote as happened in the Reagan revolution. And that's not likely given the stupor in which so many Americans seem to live these days.

I feel sorry for Democrats because at least so far, Hillary Clinton is their only choice. How pathetic. It's like finally being free of the old battleaxe but the only girl who'll go out with you is your bitter ex-wife.

But I have a theory. Just a theory, not a prediction. The more I think about it, however, the more I think it may be spot on.

There is no love lost between the Clintons and the Obamas. The Clintons feel they got snaked in 2008. Keeping his friends close and his enemies closer, Obama sent Hillary off to be Secretary of State, one long excursion flying here and there and doing nothing productive, losing Asia, leaving eastern Europe to the Russian wolf, and making a complete and deadly mess out of the Middle East, culminating in the blood sacrifice of our ambassador to Libya. Obama could not care less about all that; the worse the news is for America, the better as far as he is concerned (see "Obama's Legacy: The Perfect Dystopian Storm"). And it kept Hillary out of his hair in domestic politics.

Now Hillary has launched a laughable effort to win the presidency in 2016. Fearing the wrath of the scorched earth Obama and the scorched earth Clintons, no viable alternative is coming forward to challenge her. Obama has damned her with faint praise. She is a laughing stock. Everyone on the left is just going through the motions for her.

Here's my theory: Barack Obama is simply waiting for Hillary to collapse under her own weight. Then there will be a "spontaneous" groundswell of support for his own candidate. His candidate has no qualifications, of course, but has an unbeatable combination of qualities: She's female. And she's black. And her name is Michelle Obama.

Mind you, it's just a theory that came to me last weekend when I was reading about Hillary's campaign and thinking, this can't be serious. But I searched it, and came up with this: "MSNBC Guest: Michelle Obama Should Challenge Hillary."

Sorry, fellow lovers of America. If my theory is right, it's fixing to get a lot worse. Had any good dates with ex-spouses lately?

Karl Dean's Big Gun Show

I think it's hilarious that the one really big show booked by Mr. Progressive Nashville Mayor Karl Dean's boondoggle convention center is the N.R.A. convention.

You can't pay me to go downtown with the mess they've made out of parking and traffic, but I encourage all Second Amendment fans to get out to the show and claim your righteous place in the "it" city's image.

And speaking of Dean's boondoggles,  I sincerely do hope the baseball stadium is an actual success. It would be a shame if Nashville lost the minor league franchise and had to use such a nice facility for, say, roller derby.
