A lost cau$e?

February 3, 2022

Stephen Colbert is all over the Brian Flores racism lawsuit, noting that Flores said NY Giants informed him they had hired someone else – three days before his scheduled invterview. On a brighter note for Flores, at least he didn’t have to coach the NY Giants

So NFL allegedly was paying coaches to lose? Looking back 5 years to 2017 the two teams tied for worst records in NFL – both 22-59 – have been NY Jets and NY Giants. Well, the cost of living is high in New York.

CNN headline “Liz Cheney isn’t going down without a fight.” If you read the article, however, the story is that Cheney has outraised her Former Guy supported GOP primary opponent almost 10 to 1. ($7.1 million to $745 thousand) Guess that’s not as a dramatic a headline.

Same Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis who signed law saying OK for motorists to run over protesters, was asked about Nazi protesters, and condemned “these people,.. these Democrats who are going to use this” politically against me. As Rachel Maddow reminds us. “It is not hard” to condemn Nazis.

Apparently some MAGA folks are upset with Garth Brooks because he’s got vaccine mandates at his concerts. What about this “choice” & “cancel culture” they love to talk about?

It’s not that I have a problem with Whoopi Goldberg saying something offensive and getting suspended. It’s that that I have a problem with all the white men saying something offensive and getting excused. Or worse yet, elected.

Again, anyone thinking of taking GOP complaints seriously about President Biden’s future SCOTUS pick really needs to spend a little time watching C-Span2. Doesn’t matter WHO Joe picks. For whatever position. At least 30 something GOP Senators (often more) vote against him or her on principle.

WTF? Rudy Giuliani was on the Masked Singer? Wait until Velveeta Voldemort hears this. He’ll probably attack Rudy for voluntarily wearing a mask.

Pitchers and catchers on hold?

With no progress between owners & players, now looks like MLB spring training, scheduled to start Feb 14, will be delayed.

One time of year when between the Super Bowl & March Madness, baseball has least competition for attention. This wouldn’t happen if MLB had a commissioner.

Dear media. Tom Brady didn’t die. He just retired.

So have to assume all those who say Barry Bonds should not be in the Hall of Fame because they say he cheated feel the same about Tom Brady. #Deflategate

Former NFL Dolphins’ Coach Brian Flores claims Miami owner Stephen Ross offered him $100,000 for every loss his first season. NY Jets fans thinking “Hey, our team does it for nothing.”

Well, if the Miami Dolphins want a coach who can lose games, Urban Meyer is available.

From Jeff Asher “The full list of division teams to sweep Tom Brady in the regular season in his 21 years as a starting QB in the league:

2020 New Orleans Saints

2021 New Orleans Saints

Italy is tired of COVIDiots. “Effective today, all unvaccinated people who are over 50 years old – both Italian citizens and foreigners living in Italy – are subject to €100 fines.

Stephen Colbert’s rant tonight on Velveeta Voldemort trying to seize voting machines is better than I can capture in 280 characters. But this kind of sums it up – “do you know how crazy you have to be to hear you’ve gone too far from Rudy Giuliani?”

Eachel Maddow reporting that more than 14 historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) have reported bomb threats today. Today! )Tuesday)

So will Republicans demand this disturbing story not be talked about in schools?11238

GOP likes to accuse Democrats of wasting money. Wonder how much money we’re spending in the US on ICU care for unvaccinated patients.

The long goodbye.

Tom Brady now says he hasn’t decided if he will retire or not. So not content with breaking more of Drew Brees’ records for passing this year, Brady is now trying to break Brett Favre’s records for indecision.

Tom Brady also has pulled out of Pro Bowl, citing a shoulder injury. Wonder if Brady hurt himself throwing Microsoft tablets in the locker room after Buccaneers playoff loss to Rams?

Stephen Colbert on Super Bowl. “Most exciting thing to happen in Cincinnati since they found all that spaghetti under their chili.” Dear Stephen: You REALLY need to stop into Graeters Ice cream to die for like black raspberry chocolate chip. (And I don’t even live in Cincy.)

Not that I think he should do it, but if President Biden suddenly told GOP they were right about looking at other SCOTUS picks, nominated Merrick Garland (again) and then nominated a Black woman to replace Garland as Attorney General, Republican heads would STILL explode

Velveeta Voldemort nominated Amy Comey Barrett to the Supreme Court eight DAYS after RBG died. So GOP should have no problem with President Biden, who’s clearly been mulling options, naming his nominee by the end of the week.

So who had “Irish fishermen” as the staunchest defenders of liberty against Russia?

Somehow I have forgotten all the NY Times and other media’s interviews & front page stories with Hillary Clinton voters in 2018, saying how they still supported her and how she really won the 2016 election.

Rachel Maddow sharing WaPo report on how some Former Guy records sent to January 6 committee were torn up & had to be taped back together. At least probably was easy for commitee to see which documents Velveeta Voldemort handled himself – look for pieces showing Sharpie marks.

Stephen Colbert also Monday night on Velveeta Voldemort’s promises to January 6 protestors. “Well, as long as you’re doling out pardons, f*ck you,” “Pardon my French.” Merci beaucoup Stephen!

If you’re looking for a birthday gift for a child or teenager in your life, may I suggest a banned book?
