The pain, the pain

February 12, 2020

The Ohio State Medical Board ruled against Browns or Bengals fans who said they experienced enough pain to qualify for medical marijuana. But what about those who are Browns/Bengals fans AND fans of the Cavs and Reds?

Jameis Winston, who last season threw 30 interceptions in one season, just had Lasik surgery. 30 passes to someone in the wrong uniform. Does Lasik correct color blindness ?

On a nonpolitical but potentially still controversial note, heard former NBA player Tom Tolbert on KNBR suggest an idea for instant replay I’ve considered before and agree with: In all sports, you get 60 seconds. If you can’t see enough to overturn the play in that time, the call stands. Period.
Thoughts?

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

 

Larry Ellison is holding a fundraiser for Donald Trump.  As if he wasn’t already one of the most disliked people in high-tech.

After Trump tweeted about Roger Stone’s prison sentence, Lindsey Graham said “I don’t think he should be commenting on cases in the system. I don’t think that’s appropriate.”
Too soon to start a pool on when Graham pivots and says Donald was just being Presidential?

“If the lion knew his own strength, hard were it for any man to rule him.” Nope, not spoken about Trump. Thomas More, in the 1500s. And how’d that work out for most of those who enabled Henry VIII?

Occam’s Razor says Trump’s cutting a scheduled pay raise for Federal workers is because he’s still livid over the federal workers who he thinks have betrayed him by telling the truth.

Iowa Democratic Party Chairman Troy Price has resigned. Well, guess no future employer will need to ask “why did you leave your last job?

 

Vetting candidates matters. But just like all pitchers have ERAs, anyone who has spent any time in politics has made mistakes in their past. But come on folks, all the bad things everyone in the Democratic field have done together add up to less than an average Trump week.

Good news.

The real winner in tonight’s Democratic primary?   Iowa over New Hampshire.

 

The only way Amy Klobuchar might have sounded happier tonight is if the Vikings had made it to the Super Bowl.

Tim Tebow, 32, starts NY Mets spring training this week and says he is still driven to someday play in MLB. Or even with the Mets.

 

Elizabeth Warren- very classy. “I want to congratulate my friend and colleague Amy Klobuchar for showing just how wrong the pundits can be when they count a woman out.”

Okay, who had Amy getting more votes in New Hampshire than Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren? Now all you liars put your hands down.

Under Barr, can we rename it the Injustice Department?

Elizabeth  Warren nails it. “Susan Collins said Donald Trump has learned a lesson. He has – the lesson is that he can do anything he wants.”.

Under Barr, can we rename it the Injustice Department?
So I must have missed it, when did Susan Collins, who voted for him, announce that she was “very troubled” by William Barr?
Former Massachusetts Governor Deval  Patrick announce he  will  end his  2020 presidential bid. Shocking millions of Americans who didn’t realize he was running.

PSA, EVERY SINGLE DEMOCRATIC Presidential candidate has done something you disagree with. And the longer they have been in public service, the more “somethings” there will be. Get over it, or we will have 4 more years of Trump. Thank you.

Joe Biden says Democrats can run Mickey Mouse against Donald Trump and have a chance. Well, if Mickey offers everyone free Disney tickets Joe might be right.

Andrew Yang is dropping out of the Presidential race. I guess he did the math.

Jussie Smollett should be in jail
So should Roger Stone.
It’s not that hard.
