10 One Line Thoughts Under My Fedora, SCOTUS Kennedy, Congress, Tebow, Rick Wilson etc

Can some­one explain to me why it’s a good thing that the House is doing all it can to get votes for a bill not meant to pass?

I don’t care if as of this writ­ing Tim Tebow is hit­ting over fifty points higher than Jackie Bradley Jr. I’ll take Bradley in cen­ter field turn­ing dou­bles into fly­outs every day of the week.

Johnny Depp and I are the same age and while he did much bet­ter than me for most of his life this piece by Robert Stacy McCain link­ing a Rolling Stone pro­file con­vinces me not only that I’ve pulled ahead but that noth­ing is more dan­ger­ous to life and soul than being rich enough to make your wildest fan­tasies come true.

Jake Tapper’s encounter with Keith Elli­son over his asso­ci­a­tion with anti-​Semite Louis Far­rakhan reminded me of some­thing that Joe Kennedy Sr. once said about his son Bobby Kennedy: “Bobby’s my boy, when he hates you, you stay hated.”

If Jeb Bush had been in the White House instead of Don­ald Trump with this econ­omy and these results from the Supreme Court Rick Wil­son & Bill Kris­tol would be call­ing him the great­est pres­i­dent of all time.

When I see tweets like the one below I’m con­vinced that the New York Times for­gets they no long have a monop­oly on pho­tographs, video and the means to dis­trib­ute them.

Iran­ian pro­test­ers chant­ing “Death to Pales­tine” is the most sig­nif­i­cant inter­na­tional story that the main­stream media is ignor­ing today.

It’s no coin­ci­dence that the Democ­rats started call­ing Repub­li­cans “Nazis” became main­stream once the World War 2 gen­er­a­tion Democ­rats who had expe­ri­ence fight­ing the real thing had died out.

Reflect­ing on the week in the Supreme Court cul­mi­nat­ing in the retire­ment of Jus­tice Kennedy today, none of these results are pos­si­ble with­out the com­bi­na­tion of the unlikely vic­tory of Don­ald Trump on elec­tion day and the even less likely act of Mitch McConnell keep­ing his nerve before it.

Noth­ing is more healthy for the soul that a week away from the net, the polit­i­cal world or both.

If you want to know what the Amer­i­can dream is, it’s a tiny fam­ily owned wing/​taco place smaller than my kitchen that had a Mex­i­can flag in its win­dow becom­ing so pop­u­lar that the folks run­ning it have to move to a larger loca­tion to accom­mo­date the business.

Can someone explain to me why it’s a good thing that the House is doing all it can to get votes for a bill not meant to pass?

I don’t care if as of this writing Tim Tebow is hitting over fifty points higher than Jackie Bradley Jr. I’ll take Bradley in center field turning doubles into flyouts every day of the week.

Johnny Depp and I are the same age and while he did much better than me for most of his life this piece by Robert Stacy McCain linking a Rolling Stone profile convinces me not only that I’ve pulled ahead but that nothing is more dangerous to life and soul than being rich enough to make your wildest fantasies come true.

Jake Tapper’s encounter with Keith Ellison over his association with anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan reminded me of something that Joe Kennedy Sr. once said about his son Bobby Kennedy: “Bobby’s my boy, when he hates you, you stay hated.”

If Jeb Bush had been in the White House instead of Donald Trump with this economy and these results from the Supreme Court Rick Wilson & Bill Kristol would be calling him the greatest president of all time.

When I see tweets like the one below I’m convinced that the New York Times forgets they no long have a monopoly on photographs, video and the means to distribute them.

Iranian protesters chanting “Death to Palestine” is the most significant international story that the mainstream media is ignoring today.

It’s no coincidence that the Democrats started calling Republicans “Nazis” became mainstream once the World War 2 generation Democrats who had experience fighting the real thing had died out.

Reflecting on the week in the Supreme Court culminating in the retirement of Justice Kennedy today, none of these results are possible without the combination of the unlikely victory of Donald Trump on election day and the even less likely act of Mitch McConnell keeping his nerve before it.

Nothing is more healthy for the soul that a week away from the net, the political world or both.

If you want to know what the American dream is, it’s a tiny family owned wing/taco place smaller than my kitchen that had a Mexican flag in its window becoming so popular that the folks running it have to move to a larger location to accommodate the business.
