Much too young to feel this damn cold….

January 31, 2019

Jack McKeon, 88, has been hired as a senior adviser for the Washington Nationals.  Good for McKeon.  But at 88, isn’t “senior advisor” redundant?

Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin says it was “soft” for schools to close due to cold.
So why didn’t he give that Press Conference outside?

Okay, here’s an idea for positive NFL change. Besides adding limited PI review, which the CFL does, let’s talk about targeting and helmet-to-helmet.
The league already reviews plays and fines players, as they did after Saints-Rams. But make, AFTER REVIEW AFTER THE GAME- deliberate helmet-to-helmet/targeting a defenseless receiver an infraction that means unpaid suspension for the next game. Even if the playoffs or Super Bowl.
If safety is REALLY the goal that will make anyone think twice.

US State Department raised its Venezuela travel advisory warning for US citizens to “do not travel.”
With all due respect, is there any American who WANTS to travel to Venezuela right now?

Mitch McConnell said today that making Election Day a federal holiday is part of a “power grab” by Democrats to win elections.
Right, because heaven forbid in a democracy we make it easier for people to you know, actually vote.

As a moderate Democrat, I disagree with AOC on several policy issues. But am in awe of her social media skills – Today’s tweet -“Why don’t people ever tell billionaires who want to run for President that they need to “work their way up” or that “maybe they should start with city council first”?

Sarah Sanders: God “wanted Donald Trump to become president.”
God, “Don’t blame me, heck, I can’t even get a lousy targeting penalty called when SAINTS are involved.

 

 

Okay, if GOP doesn’t want Election Day to be national holiday in theory over cost, it would be inexpensive & effective to give all voters a lottery ticket.

On Morning Joe, Howard Schultz was surprised because while he said “I don’t eat Cheerios,” when Mika Brzezinski told him an 18 ounce box cost $4, he responded “That’s a lot.”
Right, about 2/3 of the price of an equivalent sized Starbucks latte.#NotTheOnion

At least seven people have died due to cold temperatures in the Midwest. Following his California comments waiting for Donald Trump to say it was their fault.for not shoveling their walks or something.

For the attack by his neighbor, Rand Paul was awarded more than $580,000 in expenses and damages. How many Americans are starting GoFundMe pages for the neighbor?

Have to wonder, at some point does  Donald Trump think about fact that if he hadn’t run for President he could be spending this whole Polar Vortex winter at Mar-A-Lago with Playboy bunnies and porn stars?

 

Serious final note –  Frank Robinson is reportedly in hospice care. 2019 so far kind of sucks.
