Those of us who made the deep meaningful decision to pick a cat bracket might be second guessing ourselves in that big cats (Tigers) generally beat medium size cats (Wildcats.)

Two questions asked by many Americans after March Madness Day 1.

  1. Where is Furman
  2. What’s a Paladin

From a FB friend – if it’s not true it should be. “The story goes that the original Furman mascot was to be the Christian Knights. But then someone put together the phrase “Furman University Christian Knights” — and then changed the mascot to Paladins.”

Aaron Rodgers says he wants to play for the Jets.

Let’s see, the touchy aging superstar QB and the famously sensitive NY media. Am sure it will go well.

So Marjorie Three Names said Putin has no plans to invade Europe.

She doesn’t know Ukraine is in Europe…. Wonder if Marge is one of those who questioned Obama’s citizenship because she didn’t know Hawaii was in the United States.-

Over 3 billion COVID-19 mRMA vaccines have been administered but Florida’s surgeon general says the vaccines are dangerous.

If President, Ron DeSantis would probably put this guy in as US surgeon general.-

As old Amy Klobuchar story resurfaces with the report of Florida Governor’s using three fingers to eat chocolate pudding, reminder that eating salad with a comb actually is good emergency hack to keep your hands clean.

As opposed to getting your fingers covered in oil. Or in DeSantis’s case – pudding. Women are SO much more resourceful than men.

Back in college decades most of us knew, even if we didn’t need it, that a Plan B contraception option could be concocted from regular birth control pills. No question anti-choice radicals know that fact too… so how long until they judge-shop to have the Pill banned too?

My college dorm talent show had great drag performance of Supremes -“Stop, In The Name Of Love.” None of 3 went into politics.

But if anyone knows hateful GOP politician attacking drag queens who was in drag show/costume himself in college, now would be good time for pictures.

Not just that radical Republicans are anti-choice. But as much as they want to control women’s health choices under pretence of caring about “life,” they also want to cut off food stamps, healthcare, public education – everything that matters after baby is born.

Pro life my a**


Ides etc.

George Santos hasn’t been in the headlines as much lately.

Has he been lying low, or just practicing to lead his team in March Madness?

NY Closer Edwin Diaz may have received a serious knee injury at the WBC…. not while pitching, but in the postgame celebration after Puerto Rico’s win…

That’s SO Mets.

Didn’t not know that back in 2002 Trump bought what would become Trump National Golf Club in Rancho Palos Verdes “for the bargain price of $27 million from Credit Suisse.” Don later got a $25 million tax deduction for not developing the land except for the golf course. #ETTD

President Obama has released his March Madness brackets. For the men, Barack Obama is picking Duke to win it all. Has Velveeta Voldemort released a statement yet saying if he had played, he WOULD have been able to lead a team to the championship?

US Court of Appeals has ruled US cheesemakers can call their product “Gruyere.” Let’s hope no court rules US winemakers can call all their sparkling wine, “champagne.” That could result in a declaration of war from France.

Eric Swalwell on The Last Word reiterates what Democrats, notably Rev. Warnock & Amy Klobuchar, have been saying on voting rights: “GOP now can’t achieve majority. They suppress voter turnout since majority would defeat them & tell lies about voting machines so people stay home.”

Last night Tucker Carlson said “Jan. 6, I think, is probably second only to the 2020 election as the biggest scam in my lifetime.” Would some reporter like to ask Kevin McCarthy on camera what he thinks of that statement?

Interesting that Credit Suisse’s biggest shareholder is Saudi National Bank. They invested $1.6 billion in the Swiss Bank. Same Saudis who invested $2 billion in Jared Kushner…

As an endless stream of GOP Senators pontificate on the Senate Floor against President Biden’s budget request, for some reason not a single one of them suggests cutting the deficit by reducing the Trump tax cuts

Pretty clear watching a replay of Senate Judiciary Committee hearing today on gun safety that GOP cares a lot more about the “life” of a clump of cells a few weeks after conception than they care about the actual lives of women and children.

Stephen Colbert on Ron Deathsantis’s claim Russia’s invasion of Ukraine was “territorial dispute?””. “Invasion of sovereign country, destruction of entire cities, attacking civilian targets.. Ron, you were a history major at Yale. Was that the University or the lock company?”
