You Say Goodbye And I Say Hello

Commentary thought about saying something about the Illinois Governor and his appointment yesterday but what is the point. The Illinois Governor is just eating away good time on the news that could be used for other stuff like more of W’s former staffers raining on Ws exit.

The least popular group in the whole U.S. of A. is fixing to get an automatic pay raise tomorrow. Way to go Dem controlled Congress! Folks are losing their jobs, homes, businesses, and arses and you are fixing to pad your bank account. You don’t need no freaking bailout! P-I-T-I-F-U-L!

What is it with gente of Commentary’s persuasion firing their pistolas into the sky later on this evening? Who thought up that idea? I wonder if cerveza and tequila were involved in the decision making process?

Tomorrow begins Year 2009. Let’s see now.

Harris County will have a Dem Latino Sheriff.

H-Town will have mayoral and city controller races.

The PGA will be interesting again because Tiger will be back.

The cannibalization of Caroline Kennedy will continue for a while.

Harris County will have a bunch of new Dem judges at the courthouse.

H-Town Council Member James Rodriguez will be the only Latino on City Council for now.

Folks will start talking about the 2010 Census.

TVs are going all-digital so that means more Max Headroom moments.

Lone Star State U.S. Senate candidates will start bombarding us with emails.

The Dean will probably once again be the steadiest hand during the next legislative session.

Somebody will probably be elected Texas House Speaker on January 13.

There will be a Houston Area Latino Summit on Satruday, February 14.

CEWDEM will surpass emailing to the one kazillionth e-address.

The local Latino leadership is going to get off of its arse and do something about Latino voter turnout.

The Feibel/Olson Chron City Hall team will continue to do juicy pieces – yikes!

Sweet Marisa will be back on the jumbotron.

Maybe the Big Puma, Roy O, Miggy, Numero 45, Joe Green Valley, and Hunter Pence will all start off having good seasons and land in San Luis for the All Star Game.

Governor Palin’s In-laws will probably be caught trying to sell Lil’ Tripp’s baby photos to “Field and Stream” so they can raise cash to invest in a high tech meth lab.

Dem folks in the Lone Star State are going to be using the names “Bill White” and “John Sharp” in the same paragraph.

We will keep an eye out for any of Ike’s kinfolks sneaking up on us this summer.

Move over “Si Se Puede!” “Quien Es Mas Macho?” will be the campaign rallying cry used by White/Sharp in the growing Latino community.

Oh, almost forgot – Obama will change things around in the U.S. of A. and get us back some R-E-S-P-E-C-T around the world.

Commentary will continue to hang out at The Yard and get ready for the World Serious returning to H-Town in October.

Be careful and watch out for the other fella this evening. Happy New Year!
