On the bright side, maybe he just means GOP congressional candidates. #trumpcap

It's unbelievable that Trump said this thinking it would win over African American voters.

Losing badly would actually be a lot more in line with his business track record than winning.

Full disclosure: I'm a friend of one of the owners. But now I'm also a fan. Madeline and her husband Scott have created 11 wonderfully decorated cabins, each with its own distinctive theme and all with an incredible eye for detail. With too many places, "funky" turns out to mean a jumble of random, mismatched kitsch. But here, it means the items in each cabin have been playfully but painstakingly sourced to create the perfect effect – from a cabin for crafters and creators, to another for explorers, birders and stargazers, and still another (the one we stayed in) that romantically celebrates the courtship of Madeline's parents, William and Mildred. And we didn't have to trade comfort for coolness. Between the jets of the soaker tub in our cabin, the kitchenette, the remote-controlled gas fireplaces in each room (one for us, one for the kids) and the west-facing barbecue-and-briquette-equipped deck perfect for watching the sun set over the Pacific, we were sorely tempted to forego the shops of Mendocino and the tidal pools on Glass Beach, and just hang out for our whole stay. That was doubly appealing to our kids, who were thrilled by the Andiron's two resident goats (Peanut Butter and Jelly), the extensive collection of vintage board games, the flocks of woodpeckers and other gorgeous birds that sweep through the property, and the morning all-you-can-spread toast bar. For their parents, the five o'clock happy hour on weekends, pairing delicious food (fondue one night, tamales and quesadillas the next) with local beer and wine – not to mention warm, welcoming conversation with Madeleine and Scott and the other guests – will remain one of the highlights of our holiday. There's no cell phone service along this stretch of Highway 1, but between free WiFi, in-room phones and a pay phone at the inn's office, we were easily able to keep in touch as much as we needed... and as little as we wanted. Oh, and there's a nice, big hot tub. And an extensive DVD library. And a geocaching kit. And a coffeemaker in our cabin with pre-ground coffee *and* beans and a grinder. We loved it.

Wow... good music but not drink-up-and-get-TF-out loud, and staff who go out of their way to make sure you get what you want (and not just what you order). Plus non-flaky WiFi, and chocolate milk for grown-ups.

It was hard to imagine Vancouver's Best Coffee being replaced by something even better. Live and learn!
