La Russa Retires
One of the most cerebral men to ever manage the game, but a total tool as well. (But then again, as a Brewers fans, I’m biased against the man and wouldn’t mind to see someone pitch a heater at his coconut.)
He’s earned it, and I wish him the best of luck in whatever TV studio gig he eventually lands at.
On the plus side, no La Russa might increase the chances Pujols bails on St. Louis for greener pastures because the two were tight. On the negative side, they might then pursue Prince Fielder.
Speaking of Baseball Free Agency…
Occupy “The Trademark”
(No word if the proceeds will be communal.)
Wasn’t This a Movie Plot?
This has “Stoner Comedy” written all of it. That, or the next movie Seth Rogan can butcher…
Two employees of a Dominoes burned down the rival Papa Johns located across the street. Both have been charged with arson.
Both of them are store managers.
The Cain News
Honestly, I think they completely botched the defense of the sexual harassment story. (Who the hell goes on with Geraldo these days?) But Politico’s got a lot of explaining to do on why they’re still holding details to their vest and their lack of an explanation shows it’s beyond pathetic that they’re hiding behind anonymous sources to justify their scoop.
Frankly, the Cain folks are in hotter water with the story Bice broke this morning than the sexual harassment story from almost 20 years ago. For starters, it’s much more relevant to how he’s running his campaign, what sort of people are in his employ now, and how they manage money.
And if they don’t get their ass in gear on it, the Federal Elections Commission and Internal Revenue Service will eat them alive.
The Lazich Bills
Think the redistricting one is stupid and makes the Senate GOP look like its practicing “Panic Politics” (which they are) and frankly, it’s time someone in that caucus realizes the GAB is run by a bunch of Doyle leftovers and never going to give them a victory. They should have written the first re-districting bill to apply to “Calendar Year 2012″ from Day One and not assume GAB was going to give the same leeway the old State Elections Board did.
Now it looks like they’re doing a botched do-over, which they are. Think of it as a learning experience.
As for the “Notary Public” bill, I am all for it. It’s just a hoot.
Your NFL Line for Week 9
The Packers are 5.5 point favorites over the Chargers even before they played their game on Monday Night. The Charges are currently losing to the Chiefs. Expect that to increase by tomorrow when the rest of the casinos create their lines.
Finally…Wisconsin Liberal Disappoint Me
Concealed Carry officially begins tomorrow — November 1 — and not one of you were able to tie it into the Mexican Holiday of “Día de los Muertos,” more commonly known as “The Day of the Dead” which is also celebrated that day in Hispanic households and various public schools trying to spread cultural diversity.
The universe lobbed you a softball, and none of you connected. Pathetic.
