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.

From Huffington Post:
The most notable jurors include:
•An apparent transplant from the 1800s who referred to Trayvon Martin as “a boy of color.”
•A young landscaper who said, “I’m not a person who really cares about other people.”
•A local resident and “Law & Order” junkie who was disappointed the shooting happened in her town: “This really didn’t need to happen in Sanford.”
•A young arm-wrestler, and apparent conspiracy theorist, who remembers the shooting because it happened the same day he did his first one-armed pull-up. “I have a dark view of the media … I don’t want to be brainwashed,” he said.
•A middle-aged female who is married to a retired police officer, gets her news from AOL, and believes in the right to carry arms. “I think he was just defending himself … I consider myself better educated. My opinion is pretty firm,” she said.
•A Hispanic man who said Zimmerman is guilty because he broke God’s law: “The 10 Commandments say don’t kill.”
•A member of a pro-Travyon Martin Facebook group who was apparently caught trying to sneak his way onto the jury.
•A potential juror who said he gets his news from Fark, a partner of HuffPost Weird News.
