Random Thoughts – Thursday, December 13, 2012


“Oye vey. Would Newt Gingrich please just go away?”

Quote of the Week (Thus Far) South Carolina Republican Sen. Jim DeMint said on Thursday that he believes President Barack Obama will win his push to raise taxes on the wealthiest 2 percent. “He’s going to get his wish,” DeMint said on “CBS This Morning.” “We’re going to be raising taxes.”

Call me old-fashioned if you will, but I cringe each and every time Kobe Bryant curses during a TV interview.

Is it too much to ask of the media to take Hillary Clinton at her word when she says that she has no plans to run for president in 2016 and give her a much earned and deserved break?

Is Meagan Good poised to become the “Kerry Washington” of the 2013 TV mid-season new shows?

They’re called “house shoes” for a reason. I’m just saying…

Lakers ownership and front office to living legend Earvin “Magic” Johnson”: STFU!

Q: “Charles, what do you need/want for your birthday/Christmas this year?”

Laker fans: Phil Jackson ain’t walking back through that door so get yourself used to Mike D’Antoni’s “system” for the next few seasons, good, bad or indifferent.

I know it’s “Pile on Matt Lauer” time because of Today’s sliding ratings, but hey, it was Anne Hathaway who chose to leave home without “them”, right?

This very well just may be the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard/seen.

“Lincoln” is the “To Kill A Mockingbird” of this generation.

Generally speaking, I’m not a big fan of “Bring Back ______”, but how the hell do you not bring back Phil Jackson?

Don’t think for a moment that President Obama isn’t going to be a much different negotiator with Republicans in his second term than he was in his first one.

Dodgers and Angels are involved in nuclear warfare, baseball style, for the greater Los Angeles fan base.

You read it here first; Steve Nash might not play another game this season until after All-Star break if then. And even if he does, a 39 year-old (in February) point guard coming off a broken leg and subsequent nerve damage isn’t exactly a “savior.”

Biggest loser last Saturday night in Las Vegas: Floyd Mayweather, Jr by far.

When I hear Lakers center Dwight Howard bitching and moaning about his being “emotional” over how he left Orlando for LA, I can’t help but laugh and I bet Kobe Bryant, who during his Colorado legal troubles during the ’03-04 season flew back from court appearances on several game days and still played at an All-Star level, does too.

Mark my words; we haven’t seen the last of Susan Rice.

El Pollo Loco is selling beef now? ¿Decir qué?

I simply can’t get excited about the New York Knicks and I say that before they beat the Lakers tonight (probably) as long as Carmelo “Do I Have Enough Crap Besides My Uniform On?” Anthony is their top player.

Here’s how bad the New York Jets are this season: a little bit over a week ago, their former receiver Braylon Edwards, who was about to get cut by the Seattle Seahawks because, well, he’s played like crap this season, called them “idiots” for various reasons, including the whole Mark Sanchez/Tim Tebow fiasco. Earlier this week, they signed Edwards off the waiver list.

Dr. Jerry Buss is still alive, right?

Isn’t it time for another “Mitt Romney Sighting”?
