Bets on whether Trump really wants to give Roy Moore a federal judgeship?

(He won't because Moore's old and the Republicans are trying to pack the federal bench with as many young nutjobs as possible.)

At least he seems to realize that he needs people that are going to be alive to see 2020.

Fake News. A lot of the world has a clear dearth of angry WHITE males.

Trump is surprisingly difficult to make good jokes out of. Apart from him living way inside the parody horizon many of the jokes also seem to be taking the easy shots or simply being crass. This one though, it may not be the most clever one in the world, it may not refer to any specific thing Trump has done but I just love it. It's that gator in the back about to hit the fisherman that really makes it.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Why bother having "elections" at all? Why not just pull a China and declare dictatorship for life?

That's.... not what china did. They removed term limits (which russia already didn't have), allowing the current president to keep getting re-elected.

Well, Xi is probably the most powerful politician in China since Mao, so it was tantamount to letting him be president for life.

As for Russia, there are term limits on the Presidency--no more than two consecutive terms (but no limit on total terms). It's why Putin spent some time as Prime Minister while Medvedev was President. (During which time, you may recall, the Prime Minister of Russia was decidedly more powerful than the President.)
