First, we had Mitt “the Glove” Romney come out of the blue or from under whatever rock he has been hiding under for the last four years and give a speech that lambasted the republican front runner Donald Trump. And what a speech it was! He calls Trump, who was a big-time Romney backer four years ago, a fraud, a phony and a failed business man. Call him what you want, but I really don’t think Trump is an idiot or a failed businessman. Romney, actually advocated a contested convention by suggesting voters vote for Rubio in FL and Kasich in OH, should STFU and go back under his rock. Deep under. He did more damage to the party of Lincoln and Reagan in that speech than Trump has done in the entire campaign. Don’t they realize how horrific they come across? How stupid and petulant they sound? He is a failed candidate and the principal architect of Obamacare and no one really cares what he has to say anymore since he is no longer relevant. I was surprised he got so much press, but it was planned that way and I don’t think it really worked.
Then, the debate. Just wow. The thing devolved quickly into a shouting match and a “whose got the bigger dick” contest. I have concluded, after watching the debate and reading the reviews of it today, that John Kasich has the biggest schlong on that stage by a goodly margin. His balls must dwarf those of Ted “Don’t Call me Tom” Cruz and Marco “The Little Bot” Rubio. Kasich did not engage in silly personal attacks. He did not insult his opponents or make snide personal comments. He didn’t talk over the other debaters or the moderators. He was respectful and intelligent and offers real hope and good ideas. Kasich comes to the dance with nearly impeccable credentials. He doesn’t shout. He has real Head of State experience and serious cred in the national arena. He doesn’t act like a third grader who just got his favorite toy taken away by his diapered arch-rival in the sand box.
John Kasich would smoke Hilleroid Clinton in the general election in my opinion.
John Kasich is now my guy. Which puts me in the company of strange bedfellows since for Kasich to get the nod, he has to see a contested convention at this stage. Maybe Romney should give a few more speeches before returning to his very expensive hidey hole.
PS: Megyn Kelly is a goddess.

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.

I thought this was very funny. The last line of the story is funny too.

I submit that teens are dangerous and laws should be enacted banning teens and requiring background checks for all people interested in obtaining teens…

Hats off to Deadspin for this fantastic and amazing article. Even if they guy was duped or was the victim of a sick hoax, the story is phenomenal and a brilliant piece of investigative journalism (which we thought was dead). Notre Dame has known about this since December 26, the day after Manti did not get what he wanted for Christmas (a real flesh & blood gf or bf??) and a couple of weeks before the BCS Championship. Clearly, they were in on the spin, if not a full-fledged cover-up. How will this story effect his draft status? He allegedly only learns of the hoax when the dead gf called him again to say that she was no longer dead (i.e.: a zombie?).
Let’s the jokes begin.:
Brent Musberger thinks Manti’s gf is HOT.
Manti and his GF were also strangely missing from the BCS Championship game.
To his credit, he didn’t treat her badly and didn’t double-tap her after sex.
I have had imaginary gf’s before, but nothing quite so elaborate. Usually, they last about five minutes. OK, maybe four.
At least AJ McCarron’s gf (an Auburn student) is real and comes to his games.
Soon to be drafted by the Los Angeles NFL franchise.

Check out this story from WFSB in CT:
HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) – A new bill being proposed would make public all the names and addresses of handgun owners in the state of Connecticut.
The bill, introduced by state Rep. Stephen Dargan of West Haven, would make the information public under Connecticut’s Freedom of Information Act.
The bill would reverse a decision to keep the information private.
Dargan told Eyewitness News that he wanted to start the conversation on gun reform.
He said the information would be valuable for parents and help them make decisions on what friends’ homes they would allow their children to visit.
YARBZ: Not only would this be ‘help’ to parents deciding on which homes their kids can visit, it’ll help criminals and ne’er–do–well’s all across the state when deciding on which homes to visit… The Connecticut State Legislature… What a bunch of retards.
