Random Thoughts – Monday, August 19, 2013


Just finished reading this book and the Republican primary campaign was summed up for me by the following quote from Jon Huntsman on page 181: “What went through my head – and I hope this doesn’t sound egotistical – what went through my head was in this country of 315 million people, Nobel Prize winners, university presidents, CEOs, creative class leaders, innovators, great people, this is what we get to run for president? This is it? How come we’ve got this? They’re [the GOP candidates] all good people, but they’re not the best that this country has to offer.”

After Ryan Braun of the Brewers, suspended for the last 65 games of this season, issues his “apology” or whatever he’ll say sometime this week about having lied about his use of PEDs in 2011 when he won the National League MVP award, he should never open his mouth in public again beyond, “Hello”, “Thank you” and “Goodbye” because he really is just a bad human being.

All the people proclaiming “Breaking Bad” as the best show on TV right now apparently haven’t seen “Tyler Perry’s The Haves and Have Nots” on OWN.

How come no one ever did a song, “I’m In Love with a Mormon”?

I wonder which “pastor” will be the first to lose his church behind “Preachers of L.A.”

Interesting tidbit about A-Rod’s being hit with a pitch by Ryan Dempster of the Red Sox during last night’s game: while his manager, Joe Girardi, defended him so vigorously that he was ejected from the game, not a single one of his Yankees teammates came out on the field to support him. NOT A ONE.

One doesn’t need more proof that GMA has clearly replaced Today as the #1 morning news show than Lady Gaga unveiling her new video there this morning.

One thing to remember about guys like Stephen Colbert, Bill Maher and Jon Stewart: just like the Rush Limbaughs of the right, at their core, they’re just performers being paid for their “act.”

One thing to remember in all this and something that A-Rod’s side will surely bring up: Yankees GM Brian Cashman was dead set against re-signing him after he opted-out of his contact after 2007 season.

Say what you will about Matt Lauer and whether or not you believe he helped Ann Curry get fired, but he absolutely DESTROYED A-Rod’s attorney during an interview this morning.

Say what you will, but Pam Oliver’s weave seems to be in mid-season form already!

That silence you hear on the right is them trying desperately to disassociate themselves from the whole “Ted Cruz Was Born In Canada” mess.

This is going to end badly for A-Rod when it’s all said and done because you can believe that the Yankees were covering their asses on EVERYTHING when it came to him.

This whole Kendrick Lamar Vs Everybody beef reminds me of the time Midnight Star called out Earth, Wind & Fire, the Commodores, Funkadelic, the Brothers Johnson, Rufus, L.T.D. and Kool and the Gang.

Uh oh. I was flipping through the channels and came across the halftime-studio portion of the Colts/Giants game. I’m not saying this panel – Rhonde Barber, jay Glazer, Randy Moss and Brian Urlacher – is “grammar challenged”, but FOX may have to use subtitles.

We’re THIS close to learning that A-Rod once took money out of a blind beggar’s cup and covered the eyes of his guide dog while he did it.

When did all this “First Lady” nonsense start in black churches?

Where he was born is the least of the reasons why Ted “Grandpa Munster” Cruz won’t be the GOP nominee in 2016 let alone be elected POTUS.

You don’t HAVE to see “The Butler”, but you really SHOULD see it!
