If Herschel Walker ever again submits to questions from the media, I think his basic knowledge should be tested. A few simple questions should do.
1. Who is Speaker of the House and from what State does the Speaker come,?
2. Who is Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court?
3. Who is the Senate Majority Leader and from what State does the Leader come?
4. What are the first two lines of our National Anthem?
5. Who is the Prime Minister of Great Britain?
6. Who succeeded Franklin Roosevelt as President?
7. Was Alexander Hamilton ever President of the United States?
8. What is Brown v The Board of Education?
9, How did Abraham Lincoln die?
10. Who was the first President of the United States and what was his Wife’s name?
Here is how we combat intimidation at the polling places by the Republicans. We get all our professional athletes to go into the Black churches on Election Day or simply stand at the polls to escort any voters who wish to be protected from any kind of harassment. Let these assholes in Arizona who are carrying guns standing at the polling places deal with the LeBron Jameses of the world. Get all the offensive tackles who protect the quarterbacks to protect the voters.
We have to start thinking outside the box. Best way to fight fire in these situations is with fire.
The Marlins have a new Manager, Skip Schumaker. He has been bench coach for the Cardinals the last four years. I know nothing meaningful about him. Will check with my baseball buddy in St. Louis.
New Skipper gets very high grades from baseball experts in St Louis. Great in the clubhouse, a great competitor, and has a great future if given the tools with which to work.
Reportedly another woman is about to come forward alleging Herschel Walker impregnated her and took her for an abortion. Anyone want to chip in for a vasectomy for this jerk?
Bob Woodward has written some very good books and done some extraordinarily good research and other preparation in connection therewith. I listened to some interviews with him during which he admitted he could have done a better job following up on some topics
Since “perfection” is an aspirational goal, it is not surprising that Woodward could have improved on his effort. That is not why I am writing these words. I am writing them because Woodward freely admitted he could have done better. Have you ever heard Trump, DeSantis, Rubio or any elected Republican admit he or she made a mistake? I have not and do not expect to. It is not in the Trump DNA to admit to any mistake of any kind.
Hope the polls are wrong, because they have DeSantis up about 14 points over Crist. Democrats need to vote by mail very early. Old baseball fans will remember “Spahn and Sain and pray for rain”. We need ”Vote early by mail and pray for rain on Election Day”. I thought it too tasteless to pray for a hurricane but heavy rains with thunder and lightning could keep the Republicans home.
Trump is coming to Miami on November 6th to campaign for Rubio, but not for DeSantis. That should not sit well with the Governor.
Not happy that Justice Kagan, a liberal, temporarily stayed a subpoena issued by the January 6 Committee for the records of the G.O.P. Chair of the Arizona Republican Committee. Another temporary ruling pending review by the Court, but I am surprised.
Apple reports earnings after the market closes today.
Euro now $1.01, sneaking back up against the dollar.
Barbara was up at 2 a.m. this morning organizing get-out-the-vote efforts.
Mexican birthday lunch was a five pounder and that is with no alcohol. The salt did it.
So we are on our way to Florence. We leave two days after the election, just for a short period.
Yesterday we completed getting our Visas for Australia where we stop at many ports on upcoming cruise. I really like Sydney. Never been to either Melbourne or Perth where we have great friends.
Kanye West looks like he will be ruined, so there is still some decency in this Country. Nonetheless, the silence from the Republicans has been deafening. Also, has West indicated any remorse? What motivated his repeatedly expressing his anti-Semitic views?
Didn’t Trump express his great affection for this asshole? Maybe Trump will offer to pay some of West’s legal fees.
Wouldn’t you just love to see Trump’s legal fees for the past year and going forward for the next year? We are talking millions.
The Yankees could have a very rough off season. They could lose both Judge and Rizzo, among others.
Go Ukraine and vote as if your life depended upon it.
