It&rsquo;s gimmicks like this that always seem to work with Dum-o-crats but I think these stunts diminish the importance of the presidential election.&nbsp; Do you think it will have an effect? &mdash; No Thrill for Hill<br />\n Dear No Thrill: &nbsp;<br />\n More than likely this little stunt in response to Donald Trump&rsquo;s remarks about Hillary&rsquo;s weak resume will work with her current supporters but probably no one else. Besides ,the only card Hillary can play is a joker in a pantsuit.</p>\n<p> DEAR MARK: &nbsp;<br />\n I just read that Will Ferrell will be playing Ronald Reagan during the last years of Reagan&rsquo;s life when he had Alzheimer&rsquo;s.&nbsp; On top of that the movie is supposed to be a comedy.&nbsp; I don&rsquo;t care where your politics fall, that is one of the most disrespectful things I have ever heard of. Alzheimer&rsquo;s is an absolutely horrible disease that not only hurts the afflicted but also the family, friends, and caregivers. How could such a seemingly nice actor like Ferrell even consider a script like this? &mdash; Buddy<br />\n Dear Buddy: &nbsp;<br />\n Thankfully Will Ferrell, who is one of my favorite actors, has turned down producing and starring in the &ldquo;comedy.&rdquo;&nbsp; The PR spin is that this script was just one of numerous scripts that Ferrell sees regularly and that reading a script is much different than endorsing and moving forward with a screenplay.<br />\n Personally the idea that a script poking fun at one of our nation&rsquo;s greatest president&rsquo;s developing Alzheimer&rsquo;s is a sad testament to the moral bankruptcy of Hollywood. Yet I&rsquo;m not surprised, either, with the intolerance most of Hollywood has for conservatives. If Barack Obama were to have pancreatic cancer, would Hollywood make a comedy about that?&nbsp; To the contrary, an awareness campaign and stage production with ribbons on every lapel would begin immediately.</p>\n<p> DEAR MARK: &nbsp;<br />\n If Donald Trump is so smart he should offer Ted Cruz a Supreme Court nomination and the veep position to Marco Rubio or John Kasich.&nbsp; I&rsquo;m a Cruz supporter and Cruz on the Supreme Court is a lifetime position and he is the only one who is qualified to fill Justice Antonin Scalia&rsquo;s seat.&nbsp; Would this work? &mdash; Antoinette B.<br />\n Dear Antoinette: &nbsp;<br />\n Sounds like a great idea on paper.&nbsp; Unfortunately we&rsquo;re talking about the wacky world of politics where even on the GOP side of the political ledger egos run as big as Donald Trump&rsquo;s monthly hairspray bill and as fragile as rice paper.<br />\n I love the idea of a strict constitutionalist like Ted Cruz serving on the Supreme Court; however, the notion of Trump offering any position to Cruz short of Whitehouse butler has long left port. Sadly this year&rsquo;s GOP primaries have become extremely personal in nature and I believe any chance of a new bridge between Trump and Cruz is slim to none.&nbsp; A Trump/Rubio ticket with Kasich serving as Commerce or Treasury Secretary seems to have tremendous appeal, certainly compared to a Democrat ticket with Hillary, Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren involved.</p>\n<p> DEAR MARK:<br />\n Hillary Clinton made some interesting comments after being asked about Donald Trump when being interviewed on CNN. She talked about &ldquo;having a lot of experience dealing with men who get off the reservation.&rdquo; I had to laugh because the thought of her husband&rsquo;s infidelities jumped right out at me. I&rsquo;m glad she did but why would Hillary even go down that road? &mdash; Roll Tide<br />\n Dear Roll: &nbsp;<br />\n Every now and then a politician gives a completely honest answer. Here&rsquo;s Mrs. Bill Clinton&rsquo;s answer to CNN&rsquo;s Jake Tapper. &ldquo;I have a lot of experience dealing with men who sometimes get off the reservation in the way they behave and how they speak.&rdquo; With Bill Clinton appearing to be undamaged, it makes one wonder what in the world Vince Foster could have possibly done.<br />\n Besides isn&rsquo;t the phrase &ldquo;someone is off the reservation&rdquo; an extremely racist and derogatory comment towards Indians ... uh, I mean, Native Americans? Can you imagine the media blowback if Trump had used that phrase? Oh the good old double standard in politics.</p>\n<p> E-mail your questions to <a href=\"mailto:marklevy92@aol.com\">marklevy92@aol.com</a>.
