Super senior bowl?

February 1, 2020

Joe Montana retired 25 years ago this year. I feel old.

QB Alex Smith told ESPN  he is “very much lucky to be alive” after his November 2018 leg injury, which resulted in life-threatening sepsis and doctors suggesting amputation.    Of course, compared to death and losing a leg, returning to the Redskins doesn’t seem so bad.

 

Mitch McConnell apparently left DC Friday night with Donald Trump for a Super Bowl party at Mar-A-Lago. And isn’t American system of justice all about the foreman of the jury celebrating with the defendant before a verdict?

DOJ says now they have emails where Trump discussed withholding foreign aid over information on Biden.   Well if only there were a trial or something where such information might be relevant.

 

 

Amazing how many who support Trump and are using Coronavirus as an excuse to be anti-immigrant, are still also so anti-science as to ignore things like flu vaccines and washing hands.

 

The release of the last supposedly best Iowa Poll has been cancelled, reportedly over an error that left Pete Buttigieg off the list with at least a few callers.
Though to be honest, if you need a poll to tell you who to caucus for, you probably shouldn’t be caucusing.

 

Rudy Giuliani tweets “admiration for Donald Trump for withstanding the worst and most unjust attack ever on an American President and his family.”

Uh, JFK and Abe Lincoln say “Hi.”

How times have changed,. I remember traveling with my future husband and having to pretend we were married to check into a hotel. Now a VRBO commercial is touting “find out more about each other.”

Honestly, GOP Senators already know what Bolton was going to say, & probably believe him, so it wouldn’t have changed verdict. But clearly they decided optics of him speaking at trial were worse than optics of denying witnesses. So his story must have been REALLY bad for Trump

Is there a game?

February 1, 2020

 

Not this way, never this way, but Kobe Bryant would have to have smiled a bit at completely overshadowing Super Bowl Week.

“He was somebody that I always respected just because he was so much more than a basketball player. He was highly intelligent, inquisitive, curious. We all know about his competitiveness, but he was a strategist. He focused. He was driven. And would have been successful no matter what he chose to do in life.”  – Quote about Kobe from Gregg Popovich

(Also this post-game quote from Sunday night after the crash –  “Good game, tough loss, who cares?,”

 

“We all have special thoughts of him to varying degrees no matter whether you knew him a little bit or not at all, even the millions that admired him and cherished just knowing you could watch a game with him in it. You feel like he was your own. That’s when happens when you’re iconic and you’re basically a superhero.”

 

John Delaney has dropped out of the Presidential race. Shocking millions of Americans who didn’t realize he was ever in it.

Trump now imposing a travel ban on foreign nationals who have been in China in the past 14 days. Because US Citizens who’ve been in China can’t possibly be infected? I miss having a President who believed in Science.

So far,  CDC says 10,000 people have died and 180,000 people have been hospitalized during the US 2019-2020 flu season.  If we had a President, she or he might tweet to people that as scary as the Coronavirus is, a simple smart thing Americans might do now, besides washing their hands, is to get a flu shot!!!

Even the O.J trial had witnesses.

Mitt Romney was first GOP senator to call for witnesses. Was he putting country above party? Or was Mitt just happy to have the prospect of further days in the Senate where besides water, the only approved drink was milk?

At a Bernie Sanders rally tonight, Rashida Tlaib led the crowd in booing Hillary Clinton.  Maybe Rashida should pay attention not to Bernie’s campaign but to Amy and Elizabeth’s campaigns.  They disagree without personal attacks. And they respect the roads paved by Hillary.

 

How long until Trump claims Democrats want to give cows windmill cancer?

Nigeria is on Trump’s new travel ban. Because Donald doesn’t want any competition as the U.S’s #1 Nigerian prince?
