Yesterday, it was New Hampshire’s turn in the every-4th-year-spot-light. Normally, they are a meaningless state with very little to offer the rest of the world. I hear it is lovely in other times of the year. However, on Fat Tuesday 2016, it was cold and snowy and the voters clearly stated that they are fed up with the status quo and they want something different. The Donald and The Bern won hands down. I don’t know if that is a good thing or a bad thing, but I am sure that Hilleroid is in pain again today. Rand Paul, Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum all got votes and they weren’t running. Kasich came in second and Ted “Not Tom” Cruz, Jebidiah Shrub and Marco “The Bot” Rubio all basically tied for third. It looks like NJ Gov Chris “Big Boy” Christie will be bowing out of the race and returning to a buffet in Newark immediately. Fiorina and Carson may have seen their last campaign stops too.
Now it gets good. South Carolina and Nevada are next. The big political families (i.e.: Bush and Clinton) have a bit of an advantage in that they have more money and are better organized. They kinda know how this works and have been here before. Can you say SuperPac? Jebidiah even has his mother out barking for him and that is a good thing. He is still my guy, despite rather abysmal showings in Iowa and NH. I still like the idea of a Bush/Rubio ticket. I think the electorate is going to grow tired of xenophobic ranting and raving. I think we are not ready for Sanders (“Don’t call me Colonel”) and his democratic socialism (whatever the fuck that is). I like what he has to say for the most part but I am just not a fan of redistribution of wealth to the proletariat because that is communism. The Donald just doesn’t have the suave interpersonal skills and sage wisdom to be elected. I could be wrong and the stupid hippies of NH certainly didn’t agree.

In a stunning upset, the Denver Broncos and their 39 year old QB Peyton Place Manning won Super Bowl 50. It really wasn’t Manning’s doing, he didn’t play all that well. However, the Denver Defense and Von Miller in particular were stunning and controlled the game.

It is time to turn this blog back into a political machine. Instead of obituaries of Rock Stars and iconic figures from our youth, we turn to politics as usual following the Iowa caucuses.
Iowa has spoken. It’s a virtual tie for the democrats. Bernie pulled off a stunner against Hilleroid. It has got to sting and feel a little like 2008. That was when Barry Obama started to become a pain in Hilleroid’s rear. The fact that Bern got half and she got half leaves O’Malley (the most presidential looking of the bunch) making his exit. He is likely to return as a running mate…
Iowa has spoken and they got it dead wrong. Cruz? Ted fucking Cruz? Wow Iowa. Just wow. I liked Trump’s comments this morning. I like that Rubio came-in third (he’s going to be someone’s VP on a ticket). I think that my guy is still Jeb. Looks like he is a huge underdog, but there is a long way left to go. Trump will do better in New Hampshire and perhaps Jeb too and then the real contest is on. Is there a split coming to the party? Stay tuned…this might get really good or it might be a big ole sloppy hog-shit shower.
Iowa has spoken and they gave us the latter last night.

the Donald just can’t help stepping on his own member, Jeb appears to be getting more mainstream and perhaps is weaker becuase if it, Ted Cruz is a flake of immense proportions and that is just three of the 16 GOPers in the game. We have Hillary and a couple of dems, but where is Joe Joe Biden? This is about to get real good and real interesting and maybe, real boring before it gets any better…

The shooting in Texas at a Muhammed cartoon contest brought on this story on Fox News that I very much doubt you would see on any other site. It warns potential jihadists that Americans won’t just sit around while you show up to commit acts of terrorism and mayhem.
Just remember, if you excercise your first amendment rights, someone may well want to excercise their second amendment rights…What a country!

The puncher has good form and great follow through. He seemed to use the biggest knuckles to deliver the blow. It seemed to be effective. The punchee is clearly heading for the floor and perhaps unconsciousness. What we do not know is whether he is fighting for Ukraine or for Russia, but this is starting to get good.

The U.S. Supreme Court today vacated two stays of execution for convicted murderer Joseph Paul Franklin. The decision clears the way for Missouri to proceed with his execution.
Franklin is on death row for the 1977 murder of Gerald Gordon outside a synagogue in St. Louis. He’s been blamed for 22 killings between 1977 and 1980 in a bid to start a race war.
In addition to the killings, Franklin admitted to the attempted assassinations of Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt in 1978 and civil rights leader Vernon Jordan in 1980. Flynt, who was paralyzed by Franklin’s bullet, has called for clemency for Franklin, saying “the government has no business at all being in the business of killing people.”

All is well in Northern IL after yesterday’s storms. Yarbz and I were in post JuggFest football watching mode yesterday when the dang tornadic activity began and the Bears game was delayed by two hours (good call by them, it was dangerous). He and my wife both witnessed this event when I yelled, “is that a man buttfucking a cow in that sign in the corner?”. My wife paused the pic and Yarbz took a picture. He is convinced in was a sheep and not a cow. Surprisingly, Ed Curran did not mention it and they did not use that picture again. We had a very good laugh.
