Let the countdown begin.

February 3, 2020

Super Bowl LIV is finally over.   Super Bowl LV pregame show starts tomorrow.

Quarterback K.J. Costello says he’s transferring from Stanford to Mississippi State to he can play for Mike Leach.  Well, at least he didn’t pretend it was for academics.

Iowa’s top poll gets cancelled. Iowa’s caucus results may not be known for days. NFL refs are going “Well, at least it’s not us this time.”

So this morning did residents of Kansas City, Missouri wake up with both a Super Bowl hangover and the news they will be annexed by Executive Order into Kansas?

If the 49ers had won last night’s Super Bowl would Trump have congratulated the state of Nevada? Or Alaska?!. (Alaska IS the 49th state.)

But So who drew the short straw last night and got to tell Trump that Kansas City is in Missouri.

 

 

Never ascribe to to conspiracies what can be more easily explained by incompetence. #IowaCaucuses

Not sure the next step for whoever came up with the new Iowa caucuses reporting app, but a Southwest commercial might be in their future. #WannaGetAway

If you wanted proof that Amy Klobuchar is a take-charge leader, she’s the first one who figured out that the networks were dying for anything, something, someone to cover, and decided to make her speech in Iowa, thereby getting a campaign commercial before the late-night talk shows.
(and it was a good speech.)

Maybe this is all a plot by Democrats in Iowa to stretch these caucus results out right through Donald Trump’s SOTU?

Eric Trump in Iowa today “We’re saying “Merry Christmas,” again.” Uh, it’s February 3. So in addition to not being able to tell states apart the Trump family can’t read a calendar?
Rush Limbaugh has advanced lung cancer. I guess I should be sorry for him.

Down but certainly not out.

49ers picked a bad time to do their Atlanta Falcons imitation.

Not my original line but sent to me by a friend “What do the Super Bowl and Republican party now have in common?” Neither one has Patriots.

No one tried it, but  the way to beat the Chiefs might have been to let THEM have a 10 point lead.  The alternative  sure didn’t work.

 

So who can we blame for no Super Bowl Ad featuring the Clydesdales?

Before the Super Bowl, Trump did not say who he was rooting for.   

Which reason was it?  1. He couldn’t remember who’s playing.   2. He can’t bear to take the chance of being wrong. 3. He thought the 49ers would win and he linked them with Nancy Pelosi.

 

Trump congratulated the Kansas City Chiefs for representing the great state of Kansas  so very well. Some statements don’t even need a punchline.

 

If the 49ers had won think Trump would have remembered they play in California?

Waiting for Trump to attack Jennifer Lopez for dressing in a foreign Puerto Rican flag during the Super Bowl halftime show.

Open note to Kansas and Missouri.  Amy Klobuchar might be Vikings fan, but she knows the difference between your two states.

 

Yes, I know Barack Obama once said he had campaigned in 57 states. People misspeak. But pretty clear that Trump actually THOUGHT Kansas City was in Kansas. Speaking of Kansas, wonder if Donald knows Laura Kelly is now Governor.

This Groundhog Day thinking maybe Punxstawney Phil went back in his hole immediately after seeing what he thought was a dead relative on Trump’s head.

Pamela Anderson is splitting from her 5th husband Jon Peters after 12 days! 12 days?! That’s barely a Scaramucci.

I’m #VoteBlueNoMatterWho2020 But thinking back to Reagan, “officially” diagnosed with Alzheimer’s at 83, and clearly affected sooner, will Democratic candidates who would be 80 in their first term all promise to take regular cognitive tests?
