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.

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.

I can’t believe that I watched this, but it is damn funny. Very weird, very gross, but damn funny if you watch to the end…

Just when I thought the Neanderthal was going to have an a Epiphany and see the true origin of the politics of division that cast him out of his beloved Party of Sycophantic Hypocrites. But to no avail- his denial of the true source of his problems is as pathological as is his denial of his obvious anger problem. Harvey Levin, Breitbart, Ailes and Fox News are the problem.
So now he is in self-imposed exile from whatever- I thought he was moving to Venezula, Switzerland, Canada or some shit when GWB got re-elected but … He’s still a Registered Democrat.
The word-thought-mumble crime police busted him. GUILTY.

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.

Some crazed Pittsburgh teacher who passes out in class after imbibing heroin gives a “Roll Tide” when being hauled away. WTF?
