They couldn’t be bothered to remove the dead squirrel and painted a white line right over it…

Not an obit: RIP Carson, O’Malley, Huckabee, Fiorina, Kasich and hope

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.

RIP: Abe Vigoda

CATAGORIES: REST IN PEACE — FloridaBill @ 4:05 pm

Someone won a dead pool bet today I am certain. Abe Vigoda finally succumbed after years of faux reports of his death since 1982. RIP Fish/Tessio. No one will be able to falsely claim you are dead anymore.

RIP: David Bowie

CATAGORIES: REST IN PEACE,Rock & Roll — FloridaBill @ 8:15 am

The Thin White Duke is dead. David Bowie passed away yesterday after a battle with liver cancer. He had just turned 69 and released a new album called “BlackStar”. The single “Lazarus” seems to be a farewell of sorts as it starts with the lyric “Look up at me, I’m in heaven” and the video for the song closes with Bowie entering a closet and closing the door in casket-like fashion. RIP Ziggie. This guy had an amazing influence on music and the planet. I consider his album that has “Young Americans” and “Fame” to be the best bedroom music of all time.
