Scott Prosterman: Despite a careful application of charm and sales theory, I didn’t get past the gatekeeper. I’m still waiting to hear back from Senator Al Franken and Sara Silverman, not the one from Memphis, but THE Sara Silverman.
H. Scott Prosterman: The NRA used to represent firearm safety; now they represent terrorists’ right to bear arms in schools, nightclubs and everywhere.
H. Scott Prosterman: The beauty of Donald Trump is that he codifies EXACTLY what the Republican Party has come to represent since Reagan’s time: unapologetic racism, greed and investment in the war machine at the expense of all other sectors of the economy.

Scott Prosterman: Karl Rove’s articulated objections to the Chrysler ad, which is paraphrased as, “How dare anyone take the high road with a positive message unless is it also trashes Obama and promotes Republican ideals.”
Scott Prosterman: Republicans are in a snit because their selection process is so Darwinian. Whatever rises to the top of that vat surely won’t be cream.
H. Scott Prosterman: Mergers and acquisitions have never been good for consumers in most fields, and the travel industry presents all the downsides these days. Fewer choices lead to lowered service obligations.
Scott Prosterman: Our crappy education system isn’t even producing effective radicals these days. Where is Saul Alinsky when you need him? Has anyone read “Rules for Radicals” lately?
