Wrapping your mind around stuff

Wow. There's an image that will scare the horses, huh? Lots of stuff happening and only a few minutes to blog about it, so what's a fella to do? Pull out the bullets, of course.

  • It looks like John McCain has won Florida tonight and that Rudy Giuliani is going to drop out and endorse him. I've posted the picture of McCain that went out with the AP story. I gotta be honest with you - the dude looks a little maniacal in the picture. If McCain wins the nomination and Obama manages to fight off the forces of doom on the other side, Obama the Cool Cat will look even better. I gave one cheer to Obama yesterday for his intelligence; I hope that he is as intelligent as he appears to be, because if this is the competition, Obama's going to be the President of the United States if he can sidestep the Arkansas Mafia.

  • I do hope that if Rudy does endorse McCain, that he wears this to the ceremony. And, as always, a special thanks to my pal Strolling Amok for that useful if highly disturbing image.

  • It also appears that the Twins have traded Johan Santana to the New York Mets for some of Omar Minaya's pocket lint and an autographed copy of the original cast recording of the musical "Pippin." I know, you have to wait to see how these things turn out, but I remember when my beloved Milwaukee Bucks traded away Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Everyone was talking about the great value the Buckos got in return, but Kareem won several championships in El Lay, while the Bucks managed to be just good enough to lose to the 76ers or Celtics every year during the 1980s. At least Johan won't be with the Yankees and my son will never be forced to cheer "Let's go, Melky." That's something, I guess.

That's a great pic of McCain that everyone used. I haven't seen a grin like that since Jack Nicholson played the Joker.

Love the pic... I'd consider voting for McCain if he could accompany that pose with a spot-on Borat impersonation.

"Happy times."

So it looks like our presidential choices are shaping up: Mc Cain, or if he blows it, perhaps Romney, on the republican side. On the Democratic side, we get to watch the intertwining musical where Clinton and Obama take turns playing dirty, the disavowing playing dirty, only to play dirty once again. When one is constantly playing in the mud and trying to make their playmates dirty, isn't there a pretty good chance that one will get dirty as well?

Meanwhile in Gotham City, Michael Bloomberg waits and watches....As they say in the airline business during turbulence, hang on folks, its going to be a bumpy ride.
