  • ‘Bama Says ‘NO Moore’

    Judge Moore lost in deep deep red Alabama to a Democrat. I honestly can say that I am surprised. I assumed that the Evangelical Vote was there just enough for him to pull it out. Let’s face it, this election should not have been even close. Moore was the wrong candidate, Strange or Mo Brooks would have won this thing going away and Trump knew it. Strange or Brooks would have voted 99/100 the same as Moore in the Senate. Bannon’s power play failed. and now there is a Democrat Senator From Alabama. A Democrat Senator From Alabama.

    Instead of an easy win with a great candidate, the Moron Bannon decided to push a pedophile, frankly, into the election. Honestly, if I were a ‘Bama voter I would have sat on my hands yesterday. Moore had a thing for teenie-boppers when he was in his 30’s (and I don’t care if they were ‘of age’). I have 3 daughters, if a 30-something showed up to date one of them in their teens he and I would go downstairs to the bar, share a scotch and even a cigar, and then we would have a discussion. We would talk about which would hurt worse, bird shot/rock salt to the balls or 00-buck to the thoracic cavity, would it be worse to be castrated with a a red-hot bolt-cutter or have the jewels repeatedly smashed with Louisville’s Finest Maple Baseball Bat? We would also discuss various bursting pressures of the male testicle when placed in different anatomical positions while using a hand-cranked vice; there may even be a discussion of the finer more violent points of Pecak Silat. All of this wide ranging, erudite banter would occur whilst I cleaned one of the AKs.

    My assumption about the Evangelicals was wrong. They did what exactly I would have done. They stayed home and I give them kudos for that. Moore was the wrong guy and all of his bluster and stunts yielded nothing. So, what have we learned? We saw this happen a few times before. We need to run Trump/America First candidates who aren’t puritanical firebrands with a hangup for teenie-boppers (or any other bizarre predilections). We also learned the Trump was right again, and Bannon was wrong, again. And Bannon is too close to Lyin’ Ted Cruz for my liking.

    I will of course assume that Jones won’t be re-elected once the GOP in ‘Bama runs a less weird candidate.

    Joe Manchen in WV should be flipped to GOP. Time to make a deal.

    On to 2018!

    Something About an Election in ‘Bama

    Today is the special election in ‘Bama. The Dems are 0-5 during the Trump Presidency and are facing a tough road game in very Conservative Alabama. Vegas has Jones a two point dog on the road against Judge Moore. Given the staunch resilience and superb defense of the ‘Bama voter and the ineptitude of the Dem offense (especially on the road) Moore beats this spread easily and takes his seat in the US Senate

    Sunday Sports Spectacular!

    Saints lost Thursday. Boo-effing-who. I remember when I cared.

    The NFL slow-poisoning season rolls on.

     

    It’s promising to see Tiger Woods start the return to golf. Cold Warrior had it exactly right in the comments last week. Tiger revitalized the game in America – and especially brought in the kids from the inner cities into a sport that to me, is the epitome of sportsmanship and manners (although these days I wish I could say the same for some of the fans). Okay, the occasional club gets thrown. But these days, at $200 a pop, yeah, no. And yeah Tiger was a randy dude but comparing him in light of what’s been coming out of Hollywood and Washington, he’s achieved a status he hasn’t seen since the 90’s – rank amateur.

    So welcome back, Tiger.   And congrats on a respectable score for your sponsored tournament last week.  Can’t wait to see you hit the tee on 17 at Sawgrass again.

    NFL Matchups today (keep this up and soon there’ll be more people on the grass than in the seats):

    Colts @ Bills
    Vikings @ Panthers
    Bears @ Bengals
    Packers @ Browns
    Bay Area Jackwads @ Texans
    Raiders @ Chiefs
    Lions at Bucanneers
    Cowboys @ Giants
    Titans @ Cardinals
    Jets @ Broncos
    Redskins @ Chargers
    Seahawks @ Jaguars
    Eagles @ Rams
    Ravens @ Steelers

    Monday’s Game
    Patriots @ Dolphins

    In the NHL, Skates and Ice will be flying in the following locations:

    Coyotes @ Blackhawks’
    Sabres @ Blues
    Oilers @ Maple Leafs
    Wild @ Sharks (and hey – it’s on in my area!)

    In the PGA, the QBE Shootout from Naples, Florida is on the Golf Channel. I don’t know what a “shootout” is (take it away, C.W.!!)

    As usual, here is your open thread for Sunday.  I’m sure the Sunday shows were jam-packed with “unpartisan” news about the duly-elected President and the media and opposition party who apparently can’t accept it.

    I was told on THIS very blog that if Trump were elected the economy would collapse because he did not follow the ‘Pure Way Of The Light’ as foretold by the CONservatives (r) ™. He did not follow the Purity of The Way of The Light’ on Globalism and the sham that is “Free Trade’.  Some of us knew that the economic and trade policies inflicted on America were designed to destroy the Middle Class and make political and economic beggars out of the hoi poli on  Left AND the Right, make EVERYONE dependent on DC and ensure power to the self-appointed elitists/socialists on both sides of the aisle. This decapitation of the economy was Socialism, pure and simple…Socialism on a Global scale and many morons on the right fell for it so that they could remain ideologically ‘pure’ to what they thought Smith and Friedman were saying. Willful ignorance or purposeful misrepresentation, you decide.

    Well, the rest of the country decided to say, “here, hold my beer and watch this”. They gave the middle finger to our self-appointed, ideologically pure elitists, and elected Trump. Much to the chagrin and name calling on both the Left and especially the ‘so called’ Right.

    Well, LO and BEHOLD! One year in and we are well over 3+% growth and now this:

    JOBS TRUMP EXPECTATIONS....
    +228,000 NOVEMBER...

    2.2 Million New Jobs Since Election...
    Record low unemployment rate for manufacturing...
    Hispanic unemployment rate drops to 4.7% - LOWEST in history of USA... MORE...

    Believe me, NeverTrumpers, the accounting for your errors has not even begun.

    And just to spike the football a bit:

    Hundreds of ISIS fighters had just been chased out of a northern Syrian city and were fleeing through the desert in long convoys, presenting an easy target to U.S. A-10 “warthogs.”

    But the orders to bomb the black-clad jihadists never came, and the terrorists melted into their caliphate — living to fight another day. The events came in August 2016, even as then-Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump was vowing on the campaign trail to let generals in his administration crush the organization that, under President Obama, had grown from the “jayvee team” to the world’s most feared terrorist organization.
