#HandsUpDontShoot - DUNK!!!


Kaminski stuffs Obama
I wasn't going to say anything after last Saturday night's Wisconsin slap-down of UK - I was just going to let the shame of forfeiture pass silently into the black hole of Obama's history (like everything else). He had his shot at redemption and he blew it (again) and now he's only got one more Presidential March Madness Bracket to save himself with because nobody's going to care what he thinks about anything come March 2017. I'm not going to harp on Baracketology - it's been a disaster since the Sweet 16 and it only got worse over time ending in a complete mess (look for yourself if you can stomach it). PCT 39.5% - I mean, that's lower than his presidential approval rating. Among celebs the Prez ranks below Common but above Kermit the frog and, if you think about it, that sort of makes sense. BTW - I admire both Common and Kermit very much.



But there is one "celeb" that didn't make the ESPN list - a "celeb" that is "Ridiculously Good" at filling out his brackets - why it's ridiculous is a mystery that HuffPo does not fully illuminate, but the fact is that Wilbur smoked his brackets and lit BHO up. 

99.98th percentile - IN YO' FACE America!!! In. Yo'. Face. Talk about magic underwear or whatever  but Bromneytology is off the hook. Even with this shocking news I still was tempted to ignore the Presidents failure out of respect for the office and focus on new brackets like the National Journals Republican Bracketolog. Devised by political genius Charlie Cook the GOP bracket is a little different than the NCAA hoops bracket, but it sort of maps to it:

East = Establishment bracket
Midwest = Secular/Conventional Conservative
South = Social, Cultural, and Evangelical Conservative
West = Tea Party/Populist Conservative

Cook does his best to start filling out his bracket even though it's still spring training but he doesn't get too far and puts some candidates in the wrong division - oh well. It ends up looking like this:

Jeb Bush supporters hate all other Republicans

The NatJ's Scott Bland (yep, that's his name) tries to knee cap Scott Walker using this bracket by arguing that because Walker supporters in Iowa also like all the other GOP candidates there's a chance of defection and fissures in the Conventional Conservative camp - nice try Mr. Bland. What's left unsaid in the "analysis" is that Bush and Christie supporters don't like any of the other GOP candidates and Kasich supporters absolutely HATE everyone but the postman's son. It's insane - the nice Midwestern gentlefolk who back Walker support the GOP broadly (even Kasich) but odds are they're going to loose, while the "establishment" backers, who hate the base, are odds on favorites to win it all. All's going according to evil plan until...

Obama To Scott Walker: 'Bone Up On Foreign Policy'

Anyone who thinks President Obama will shy away from presidential politics in 2016, think again.
Obama scoffed at Republican Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's suggestion that he would, on Day 1, revoke any nuclear agreement with Iran if he is elected president.
"It would be a foolish approach to take," Obama said in an interview with NPR's Steve Inskeep, "and perhaps Mr. Walker — after he's taken some time to bone up on foreign policy — will feel the same way."
Fresh off his dismal March Madness performance, in an act of astonishing hubris FBPOTUS jumps right in and starts filling out his GOP Brackets prematurely. Surly this is great news for the Walker campaign and, natch, they shot back immediately, but they didn't have to say anything more than 39.5% - Wisconsin smashes Obama's bracket and all hope of redemption is lost.

The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson

She was "sexy", but "too much hard work." I'm a regular Fox & Friends viewer (mostly in protest of the other insipid morning programs like Today and Good Morning America) so over the years I've gotten to know Gretchen Carlson pretty well. Stuck between Steve and Brian she always seemed a prudish scold with an irritating, self-righteous demeanor that I simply put up with because I figured some people in the Fox audience actually liked her persona. It was obvious that Steve and Brian did not, but they were stuck with her like so many talking heads and had to make the best of it - which they did. Besides, she was no worse than any of the other women on morning show TV - I mean, you're only going to find a certain kind of person to do this kind of work and that kind of person is the Gretchen Carlson kind. Then, one day, she was gone and replaced by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and the F&F ratings began to climb, and climb and climb - in two months view

No Step On Snek

On The 2020 Election: In an elemental way We the People of the United States lost because Trump, and the MAGA movement he champions, forced the Deep State/Administrative State/New World Order (whatever you want to call it) and its enablers in Corporate America - Finance/FakeNews/Big Tech - to declare their sovereignty and steal our election in the most obvious way possible. The brazenness and " in yo face " shamelessness of the crime is a big part of its effectiveness and loudly proclaims an intent to demoralize and defeat the America First ideology which actually won the highest number of votes in this nation's history. It wasn't even close and that was made clear when key cities in 5 or 6 swing states declared they would pause (stop) counting(?!) votes until all the rural districts had submitted results allowing the big city machines to manufacture the ballots required to put Jo(((k)))e Biden in the lead. NPC's and Normies don't get too critical of process a

I've Got You Dumb Motherfuckers Eating Right Out Of My Hand

The branches of government In 2011 John Lasseter wrote an opinion piece for The Onion which exposed Pixar's production strategy and shocking success in the marketplace : "Yes, after the success of our first few movies we had a hunch you'd continue to enjoy the wonderfully designed animation and our smart, lyrical writing, but I didn't think we'd create a horde of drooling morons ready to drop everything just to watch a fucking rat cook dinner." This observation was in reference to a Pixar film titled "Ratatouille" about a rat who dreams of becoming a French chef which, to my lights, created one of the most unappetizing and subversive stories ever told. The idea of rats running roughshod in a Michelin-starred restaurant is bad enough but when the proposition that "Anyone can cook" is taken to its evil and impossible extreme I must object for France and humanity. Using that movie and others as an example Lasseter makes the point that his
