On to the tease…

CVS is doing what?

CVS is doing what?

CVS for your health

The big time pharmacy/convenience store announced it will no longer sell tobacco products of any kind. I get the sentiment, but I’m worried about the precident. How long until they stop carrying the Sham Wow is what I want to know.

 

Will Putin's showcase crash and burn?

Will Putin’s showcase crash and burn?

The Sochi Blues

What? A country that spent all its’s money on military and space programs & both programs went bankrupt, can’t get the infrastructure necessary to make ready for the Winter Olympiad? Do tell! To be blunt (haha) Sochi has been described as everything from a summer resort to a poor man’s Harlem.

 

Put up or shut up gang.

Put up or shut up gang.

Chris – say it isn’t so! 

Well it may not be so. Christie accusers are coming out of the woodwork claiming to have all kinds of evidence about bridgegate. Small problem, none of them can produce any of it. The Port Authority director taking all the heat, pic far left, claims to have big Chris dead to rights but won’t hand over evidence. Stop blowing smoke people.

 

All this plus a great Politicians of the Podcast segment!

Podcast Season 2 Episode 33: The winter of my discontent.

Discontented show for you tonight. The white death blankets much of us in the south and we’re not handling it well. Add to that a State of the Union speech that doens’t really detail the state of the union and well, you’re left with two crabby podcasters.

No matter, the show goes on, as it must.

On to the tease…

Big Top Jay

Big Top Jay

And a little Carney shall lead them…

The circus is in full swing at the White House. After putting out enrollment figures for Obamacare, Major Garret questions Carney about validity. Carney replies, “I never said that.” Garret reads Carney’s exact words from a press conference not days before. Methinks Jay has lost control of the Big Top.

 

I WILL BREAK YOU!

I WILL BREAK YOU!

Do you know who I am!

NY Congressman Michael Grimm (R) does a live TV interview at the conclusion of the State of the Union speech. Grimm gets upset. Grimm threatens to “break the reporter in half like a little boy” and “toss him over the railing” of the 2nd floor in the capital building. All this on live TV. Awesome. He later goes on Fox (of course) to say he lost his composure. Really? REALLY?

 

A Pres in his natural habitat

A Pres in his natural habitat

State of the State of the Union

It’s bad folks. I mean it’s really bad. The State of the Union speech has become a joke. First of all there is no requirement for the Pres to give a speech. It can just be submitted in writing. President Woodrow Wilson brought us the permanent speech giving. Jefferson had refused to do it during his two terms. We need to take Tom’s cue. It’s a complete farce. Listen in our podcast to find out more.

On to the tease…

Last one out gets the check.

I’m losing by this much.

And so it begins…

NC Senator Kay Hagen (D), skips Obama event in her home state. Says it’s cause she has business in DC. Nuh Uh. She’s getting distance from Obamcare, wildly unpopular in North Carolina. Who’s the next rat to jump from Obama’s Titanic?

 

Wow

Wow

As the Worm turns

First he gets drunk and goes on CNN to extol virtues of Kim Jong UN. Now Rodman is having buyers remorse. Crying in front of reporters after arriving in US, Rodman apologizes over and over. Dennis, is that because you made an ass/traitor of yourself or because you and a bunch of retired NBA stiffs lost to the North Korean National team?

 

All lanes to Christie White House closed?

All lanes to Christie White House closed?

A bridge to no where? 

Still waiting for the other shoe to drop on Christie in the bridge-gate scandal? Don’t hold your breath. This may have been what he said it was. Regardless, polls show it’s not hurt him one bit in NJ. Nationally he’s slipped behind Hill-dogg in race for the WH. But it’s still early 2014. My gut says this doesn’t affect the presumptive Republican nominee at all.

Plus a UF/UF Presidential Big Board update and a great “It’s a Conspiracy!” bit tonight.

Let the games begin – Rand Paul fires the first shot for 2016.

It's on folks.

It’s on folks.

Well we were wrong. Tony and I had discussed on our podcast that the race for the White House would heat up in the late summer of 2014. That has been the norm. A straw poll event in Iowa in late August 2 years prior to the actual election is what normally kicks off the presidential race.

So for example, the election for the next President is in November of 2016. The straw poll/state fair type event in August of 2014 would usually start the festivities, meaning sniping, snarking, baiting, and berating by all the candidates running for their party’s nomination. So that’s a good 2 years and 3 months of campaigning in some form. However it appears the Rand Paul campaign has decided to get a jump start. Read what one of his operatives in New Hampshire, Andrew Demers, had to say about Congressmen Perter King (R) NY. The quote appeared in the New Hampshire Union Leader in an opinion column written by Demers himself.

“In New Hampshire, where two of the top three 2012 Republican presidential primary candidates were non-interventionists (and carried 40 percent of the vote total of the five major candidates), Rep. King will not have much luck with a message that even he admits most Republicans oppose.” Andrew Demers New Hampshire Union Leader 26 December 2013

King has been publicly contemplating a run at the White House in 2016 as well. I guess Paul is looking to stomp all the early challengers as quick as possible. Demers also used phrases like “King’s faction on the Republican party” and called King an interventionist because of King’s stance on Syria. Read the entire piece here: http://www.unionleader.com/article/20131227/OPINION02/131229497

This is a great sign for political geeks and junkies. I count myself among them. The first three buttons on my TV remote favorites list are C-Span, C-Span2 and C-Span3. And with good reason. As President Obama is term limited we should get twice the fun since both parties will be having meaningful primary elections.

Tell me you're not excited about this!

Tell me you’re not excited about this!

I mean it’s not unprecedented by any stretch. This won’t cause a lot of ripples for most people. But a shot like this, coming this early in the proceedings, indicates it’s gonna be a good brawl for the next two years. And this is just the Republicans. The Democrats haven’t even started trying to bring Hill-Dogg down yet.

I get that this may be a complete non-story for most of you. But I’m baking cookies and putting out a glass of milk, cause for me this is Christmas Eve all over again.

A very long Christmas Eve.

Happy campaign season!

Coup de Crazy

Toronto’s crack doing, drink takin mayor is at it again. Claiming a coup d’etat is at hand when city council tries to limit his authority. The scene breaks down into a shouting match and Mayor McCocaine bowls over a councilwoman while he’s trying to help his brother in the middle of the scrum. We can’t make this stuff up.

Happy Birthday Crazy Joe

Friend of the show and our favorite Vice President, Joe Biden turns 71 this week. What did Obama give him you ask; plummeting poll numbers and absolutely no chance at winning the Democratic Nomination much less the Presidency. Thanks a lot Obama.

Sebelius Unplugged!

No, MTV is not reviving it’s hit segment. The HHS secretary Kathleen Sebelius, worthy of her own ARE YOU KIDDING ME! is so detached from the disaster that is healthcare.gov she thinks stories about people not being able to log on are just “one time anomalies.”

A star crashes in Texas 

As fast as he vaulted to the stratosphere, Ted Cruz has fallen as fast if not faster. Three weeks removed from the great Filibuster of ’13, Cruz was relegated to marching with Palin under a Confederate Flag and doing a presser while his party leader was making a speech on the floor of the senate.
