And then there were 48

March 15, 2018

This year, millions of Americans REALLY looking forward to few weeks of caring passionately about teams who we barely knew existed before. #MarchMadness #distraction


So apparently  Pac 12 really DID decide to take March Madness off.


For Pac 12 fans, is it worth mentioning that Stanford remains alive for an NIT championship? #MarchMadness


Cool thing about Loyola-Chicago upset today: At least Americans who picked Ramblers randomly can answer a question as to where school actually is located.

RIP longtime University of Texas coach Augie Garrido, 79.  One of best to coach amateur teams in history. Even counting Stengel with 1962 Mets.

So in the end will Sean Miller  be fired from Arizona because he didn’t pay players enough?

So if Trump admits he “made up facts”  with Justin Trudeau, what other world leaders has he made up facts with? Surely not BFF Putin?

Now Trump is firing McMaster. Do the surviving members of his administration get a rose?

RIP Tom Benson, 90, owner of New Orleans Saints.  He’d apparently been ill since February.  Let’s hope the ending of that playoff game with Vikings didn’t ultimately kill him.

Brand-new (and quickly installed)  pedestrian footbridge collapse is an awful story at Florida International University . No cause known yet. But good time to remember that not all “burdensome” regulations are excessive.

There’s a reason the 1st Amendment came before the 2nd Amendment.#NationalWalkoutDay #MarchForOurLives

So @RealDonaldTrump made up a story of a meeting w/ @JustinTrudeau in which he bragged about lying. And anyone seriously expects any other country to make deals with US?

Now it turns out Trump may have made up meeting where he said he lied to Trudeau. Time for a new hashtag – #ThatIsSoTrump

A second Trump lawyer is now battling to keep Stormy Daniels from talking. Uh, if it’s all lies, who cares what she says?

But seriously has Trump forgotten a cardinal rule.  Don’t screw with the people you’ve literally screwed.


Hey hey, NRA

How many kids did you kill today?  (From a chant during #NationalStudentWalkout)

The kids are alright. And they are going to be voting.



Barack Obama has tweeted out his NCAA brackets. Donald Trump will not share his publicly but no doubt Sarah Huckabee Sanders will announce after tournament that he had a perfect score. #MarchMadness

You can now do the equivalent of “Quick Picks” for your NCAA brackets, ie randomly get one filled out, or a so-called “smart bracket.”  How lazy are we getting….

So did the Pac 12 make a joint pact to take the NCAA Tournament off?

So for younger generation will #ToysRUs now become like baby boomers’ gone-but-not-forgotten Sears Christmas catalog?

So is there a E-harmony equivalent for prisons? Maybe they can make a match between Elizabeth Holmes & Martin Shkreli?

Alex Jones is claiming Democrats won #PA18 by having dead people vote. So congrats to all those who had “less than 24 hours” in the pool.

All this talk of @ConorLambPA being a DINO.  First, he’s pro-choice, pro-union, pro-universal healthcare, anti Trump tax cuts, etc.   But that district is not Los Angeles, or even Philly.    Plus remember, even DINO’s & RINO’s tend to vote party when chips are down. “Moderates” in GOP are still doing Trump’s bidding.

Wonder why Trump didn’t appoint Larry Kudlow “drug czar?

Nikki Haley to UN “US believes Russia is responsible for attack on 2 people in UK using a military-grade nerve agent.”
Didn’t realize Haley also wanted to leave Trump administration… #exitstrategy

So is Melania texting Vanessa for advice tonight?


After Barack Obama was elected I remember going to see great Will Durst, and hearing him open a show with “Hi, I’m Will Durst, and I no longer have an act.”
How I miss the days when it was really hard to come up with political comedy.

Thinking today’s #NationalStudentWalkout might make GOP inclined to raise minimum age from 18. Not for buying a gun, but for voting.
