Florida Libre!

It is pretty simple. Imagine looking at a map of the U.S. of A. Now imagine the map without Florida. It doesn’t look the same does it? We can’t have a National Dem Convention without Florida – period. If we can’t fix our durn convention, how can we claim to be able to fix our country. This may be the time when DNC Chair Howard Dean’s leadership is put to the test.

From the That’s What Friends Are For Dept: It looks like Obama has been knocked off of message again. I don’t think we should be blaming Obama just because his preacher suffers from brainal fissure.

Hey it looks like the Lone Star State Dem Chair reads Commentary. He took my advice and said no to Hillary’s team about postponing the March 29 County/Senatorial District Conventions. He told both campaigns to work together with the Dem Convention leaders. He also sent out an email blast ‘splaining things like Commentary suggested. Glad to have been of service. I wonder if he can help me retrieve my stolen Nominations Committee Chairmanship.

Forgotten in all the hoopla of the March 4 election aftermath, do you know that it looks like we will be getting three new Latina Lone Star State Reps – Carol Alvarado, Tara Rios Ybarra, and Marisa Marquez?

It looks like “Yesterday” Sir Paul got off a little light – call it the “Savoy Truffle.” He definitely didn’t look like “The Fool on the Hill.” In “The End” his wallet is $50 mil lighter. For Heather, that’s $34,000 per “A Day in the Life” with Sir Paul. That’s more than enough to start her own “Octopus’s Garden.” Now maybe he can go on another “Magical Mystery Tour” all “Across the Universe.” He still owes me a dinner – remember!

Speaking of “Another Girl”, it looks like Sweet Marisa will get some time on the Jumbotron at The Yard this season. Now if we can only get Kaz Matsui off of his arse and in the lineup by Opening Day – yikes!
