Tough Guys

Guv Dude endorsed Rudy G. for Prez this morning. I can understand this. Both of those guys get up in the morning and look into the mirror and do the ďyou talking to meĒ Travis Bickle routine. Both have that swagger factor that Dems have problems handling. Both of those guys try to come off as the tough guys of the political world. Even though they disagree on Gay/Lesbian rights, Choice, and guns, they are a tough guy match.

Also this morning, the Pope announced that the H-Town Diocese Archbishop is being elevated to Cardinal status. Thatís pretty cool.

Quite a few African American clergy fellas had a press conference yesterday to oppose the HISD bonds. They got some media run last night. They had these yard signs that said ďNo to Bonds.Ē Iím betting the Port, Harris County, Cancer and all other bond advocates are getting nervous about their bond deals.

Cin wants me to give her Cleveland team some run. How about their pitcher last night? The Byrd fella with the double windup impressed My Best Friend. Red Sox Nation, errr Chowder Heads arenít feeling too good this morning.

Speaking of, Numero 45 made the Sporting News National League All Star Team. Los Caballitos, Senor Ed and Senor Ted celebrated last night after they learned the good news! Carlos Beltran didnít make the All Star Team Ė thatís all Iím going to say about that.
