REMEMBER WHEN KATIE COURIC HAD A COLONOSCOPY ON TV? Well there wasn't a snowballs chance in hell I was going to invite you people to watch me get one, but after careful consideration, I've decided to have a brief conversation about it. Why? Because I was Scared. To. Death. And I know some of you are too, even if you don't want to admit it. And this procedure has saved the lives of people I know. Even some listeners too. And if my colon can be a hero and inspire you to look after your ownselves, the disgusting prep for it will be worth it.
THE TEA PARTY IS AFTER MITCH One of my great frustrations with the Tea Party across the country is they keep putting up candidates that can win a primary only to lose a general. I'm not saying you must find someone who doesn't share your values, but you better be pretty darn sure they have a shot of getting elected before unseating Senator Mitch McConnell. And as much as I like John Kemper, he has lost a Congressional election and a statwide election. And the Democrats are going to run a high profile candidate against McConnell, especially if he faces a serious challenger in the primary. Has McConnell done everything the way I think he should? No. But is he a lot better than any of the high profile Democrats that might run? You bet your sweet bippy he is. Not saying don't do it, just be pretty damn sure you can win it if you do.
DOES IT MATTER THAT BEYONCE LIP SYNCED IT? I can't say I wouldn't be tempted to use a perfect recording in that situation for fear of screwing up. But then again, I'm not Beyonce for goodness sake. Your thoughts?
HILL ON THE HILL Today is the big day. Hillary Clinton will testify on Benghazi. If says anything remotely like "it depends on what the definition of is is" I shall pee my pants laughing because she learned from the best.
RAND PAUL CALLING LIKE IT IS A cave. A retreat. It is what it is. And Rand Paul is not afraid to say it.
I CAN ALMOST SMELL THE POPCORN... It looks like the re opening of Kentucky Kingdom is a go. The Guvnah approved a lease with Ed Hart's group on Tuesday night and the Fair Board will essentially rubber stamp it tomorrow. The Guvnah must have choked on that signature. We'll see if we can get Ed Hart on soon to discuss what's coming for the park. Lots of incentives from all forms of government. Mostly in the form of tax relief. Which begs the question, why the hell are taxes so high?
I KNOW WHY I DIDN'T WATCH But why didn't all the people who voted for the President? TV ratings tanked compared to the last inauguration of His Highness. I would have rather prepped for a colonoscopy than watch. I'm guessing it's because Obama voters can't find the news channels on their cable boxes. Or Honey Boo Boo was on.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE LET HIM RUN Nothing would make me happier to see the Democrats have to systemically destroy the man they've deemed a genius for eight years while he fumbled and bumbled his way through the Vice Presidency. It would almost be too good to be true. Especially if he actually wins the nomination and has to run against a young Republican like Marco Rubio or Rand Paul. Let's never forget this gem:
CAN YOU IMAGINE W MOVING TO CANADA? France's last President, Nicolas Sarkozy is thinking of taking his considerable fortune to the UK to avoid the 75% tax on rich French people. And why wouldn't he? When you're that rich, relocating to another country isn't that big a deal. Just ask Californians.
