Talk about leaving a mark!

Talk about leaving a mark!

Where did our love go?

Obama roughed up by the Supremes. The Supreme Court that is. Hobby Lobby plays the hypocritical faith card and wins. What’s worse, the Court says Obama can’t make recess appointments if John of Orange says the House is in a session even if no one is present. That’s gotta sting.

 

 

 

Is that crack I smell?

He’s back and off crack!!!!

Well for the moment he is. The coolest mayor in North America is back from rehab and ready to run Toronto again. The question; is Toronto ready? Is the world ready? I know I’m ready.

 

 

 

I'm not the worst! Yeah! Take that America.

I’m not the worst! Yeah! Take that America.

Move over Jim.

The results are in and Obama is now polling as the worst President (33%) since WWII. But it’s not Jimmy Carter that has to move over. He’s only polling at around 7%. It’s big W, George Bush 43 that slides to second, polling around 28%. Third place, well that bastard is way back in the low teens.

 

All this plus a new bit where Tony and I lay down 5 presidential decrees we would enact in “If I was President!”

Don’t miss it.

Podcast Season 2 Episode 50: Down goes Cantor! Down goes Cantor!

Whoa nelly, take me home! I know enough to know I have seen too much!

Republican Majority Leader in the House of Representatives Eric Cantor loses his primary election against Republican Tea Party challenger David Brat. Yeah you read that right. The most powerful Republican in the House will no longer be in the House, no longer be the Majority Leader after getting pounded by an economics professor from Randolph-Macon College in Ashland Virginia.

The effects of this are yet to be seen. Is this the start of a run on establishment Republicans by the Tea Party? Has the Tea Party come back from the dead? Were they ever dead to begin with? Is this just another battle in the civil war raging inside the Republican Party? Is this good or bad for Republicans, Congress, the country? We’ll talk, you listen, then make up your own mind.

Do you know this man?

Do you know this man?

David Brat orders a De-Cantor 

Nobody from nowhere that no one saw coming beats top House Republican. Sounds like Mr. Smith goes to Washington right? Has to be a movie script right? Wrong. David Brat, school teacher, spender of no money, takes down Eric Cantor, the Majority Leader in congress. Cantor’s internal polling people had him up by 34%. Cantor lost by 11%. Do the math, don’t do the math, that’s huge suckage on an epic scale.

 

Wasn't me bro!

Wasn’t me bro!

Hagel takes the Hill…

…alone. All alone. DoD Secretary Chuck Hagel testifies in congress over the Bergdahl incident. As we’ve seen over and over, the Administration is lacking in what you would call full throated support of one of it’s cabinet members. Hagel is not going down alone though. He made it clear who was calling the final shots and it wasn’t him.

 

Here we go again.

Here we go again.

Turn out the lights. The party is ….over?

Apparently not. The reports of the Tea Party demise was greatly exaggerated it seems. After not winning one primary election in early April, they win a big one last night. Taking down the Majority Leader was a big surprise, but really how much did the Tea Party have to do with that? They’re taking credit but Brat’s not crediting them very much. This story within the story may have legs. Stay tuned.

Podcast Season 2 Episode 49: OK That’s a Wrap!

Two years ago I would have a hard time believing this to be true. In fact I would have said and I have said you’re a fu*&ing idiot, but now… I mean we may be reaching critical mass on an Obama impeachment. Look that’s not coming from a winger or a tea partier, I voted for the guy. I was caught up in Hope & Change just itching for someone to do the things Pres. Obama said he would do. Well, you can forget that. Second terms are always fraught with turmoil and scandal but Obama is taking that to new heights. Are we seeing the beginning of the end of the Obama Presidency?

Oh yeah Joe the plumber. You know the guy who isn’t really a plumber and isn’t really named Joe.

Don't mess with Hill-dogg Karl.

Please look at me. I am important. I have many leather bound books!

He’s one of those guys now…

Karl “The Architect” Rove goes on live television and says Hillary Clinton has brain damage and her health should be a major question for the 2016 race. He stinks of attention desperation so bad I can smell him through my computer. Don’t be that jackass Karl, don’t be.

 

 

Can this man save Republicans from themselves?

Can this man save Republicans from themselves?

This will not end well…

The House has convened a special commission to investigate Benghazi even though 3 separate investigations have been conducted by the Republican side of the House. Leadership has said three things to R’s running for reelection: 1. Don’t fund raise off of this issue.  2. Don’t pile on Hillary.  3. Find the truth and don’t make this an indictment of Obama. Well zero out of three ain’t bad. Congressman Trey Gowdy may be the one guy who can keep this ship from runnin aground.

The coolest guy on the planet just said the coolest thing ever uttered by a Pope. Francis says he’ll baptize Martians if they so desire.

Careful what you wish for…

Cuonzo Martin is no longer the coach at Tennessee.

Go Bears!

Go Bears!

He’s the new head shed at the University of California. The fans of Tennessee basketball got their wish. Well, at least 36,000 who signed the petition did. Although safe to say a lot of people who did not sign were still wishing for what happened today. I am not one of those people. I firmly believe UT just set their basketball program back a few years at least and put me at a disadvantage with my UK grad wife (homecoming queen 1994, yes I married up). I’m pretty sure that’s the minority opinion at the moment; the UT BBall thing, not the married up part. But that’s not really the issue.

Where do UT fans get this sense of basketball entitlement? Other than the Pearl and Martin eras you have to go back to the 70s and the Ernie and Bernie show to find a time when UT Basketball was relevant. I mean Jerry Green took them to the tourney all 4 of his years at the helm in the late 1990s, but his ass got run out of town too. And that turned out swell. That gave us Buzz Ball. And let’s be serious, other than the one Elite 8, Pearl’s squads underperformed in tournaments, be it SEC or NCAA. Don’t believe me? Google it. You’ll be surprised at the results when UT went in as a #2 seed. (Got by #15 Winthrop on a buzzer beater, then lost to #7 Wichita St.)

So, I don’t get it. No doubt Martin is not as flashy or as emotional, but his teams played hard, they played defense, and they started to win. What’s not to like. At Missouri State, his job before UT, Martin took them from last to first in three years. Seems like a similar formula was unfolding in Knoxville. Not to mention Martin’s UT squad was squeaky clean. They graduated, stayed out of trouble off the court, and by all accounts were stand up kids. Oh yeah, they went to a Sweet 16 too. Again, what was the problem with Martin?

I will say I think Martin leaving has more to do with the UT Athletic Department than it does the fans. The petition to get Pearl back was stupid. It was nothing more than an exercise in wasted energy by a basketball illiterate, but understandably disappointed, fan base. But no one from the AD’s office came out to disavow, disassociate, dis-something with that dumb petition. No one from the AD’s office came out and said what they knew to be true. In no way shape or form was Pearl ever going to be rehired at UT.

The athletic department was silent on the issue. That’s almost the same as an endorsement of the petition. Then after the tournament and a tap dance with Marquette, Martin was offered a bump in salary and a 2yr extension to stay at UT. The bump would move him from 11th highest paid coach in a 14 team SEC, to 8th highest. Wow, what an ingrate. How could Martin not accept that sweetheart deal?

Can you do that math? Martin’s raise would still leave him behind 5 of the coaches who did not make the tournament this year. Leaving only Donovan and Calapari at the top in salary, coaches of the other two teams to make the Dance with UT. Now in no way am I saying Martin should be in Donovan and Calapari money. But come on, in no way should he be looking up at Tony Barbee (Fired from Auburn), Frank Haith at Missouri, Mark Fox at Georgia, Frank Martin at SC, Anthony Grant (fired from Alabama), and Kevin Stallings (should be fired from Vandy). Martin should be comfortably sitting with Mike Anderson of Arkansas at 2.2 million.

But money aside, only a 2yr extension for the guy who just went to the Sweet 16? What’s the point of that? So we can do this dance again in two years. I mean I get the money end of it. If you end up firing Martin, a longer-term contract means you’re paying him. In this situation AD Dave Hart is making money in the form of a buyout. That’s fools gold in my opinion. That short-term save is long term debt in the form of a higher salary to get another guy in here, and frankly more damage to UT’s already dysfunctional athletic department reputation. Let’s not even talk about the 7’1″ center that de-committed from UT to commit to the Cal Bears, or the widely tweeted, but unsubstantiated rumor that UT boosters told Dave Hart not to allow Martin to use the UT jet for recruiting trips. Who the hell knew we had a jet anyway?

Why not just say, “Cuonzo, we are not familiar with winning big games with defense and free throw shooting by kids who go to class and don’t get arrested. We don’t like it. We would prefer every game hang in the balance as we hoist up god awful contested three point shots all game long. It’s what the fans want and it’s what we want. We would like you to go elsewhere so we don’t have to pay you.” That would have been more honest. Essentially that’s what they took the round about way of doing. So Martin went elsewhere. At least 36,000 fans are publicly happy because of it. I’m happy they’re happy. (not really)

So now what guys? UT just proved they can’t or won’t pay a guy who took them to the Sweet 16. UT proved they could be silent when things get a little tough and the fans bristle and show up on the internet with virtual pitch forks and torches. How is UT gonna get anyone in here on that budget and that record of not backing their coaches?

Fans are tweeting “Go get Marshall from Wichita St. Go get Shaka Smart from VCU.” Oh really? You think those guys are taking a pay cut to coach a team where the fans have such bizarre expectations and will work publically to run your ass out of town the minute they think you lost a game you should have won while the AD stands idly by?

Pearl left the team in an NCAA sanction shambles and Martin made it to the Sweet 16 in three years. He was then nudged and winked out the door. What big name guy is coming to that situation without a huge paycheck? News flash, we don’t do huge paychecks at UT. What should have been offered to Martin won’t be close to what we’ll have to offer a “Big Name” guy. Wake up Knoxville, Jon Gruden is not coming through that door.

So y’all got your wish. Here’s hoping we all can live with the result.
