The President called out his fellow Dems in a Rolling Stone article this week.  He told Dems to get off of their arses and head to the polls this year.  This is some of what he said:

"People need to shake off this lethargy. People need to buck up.  If people now want to take their ball and go home, that tells me folks weren’t serious in the first place."

"It is inexcusable for any Democrat or progressive right now to stand on the sidelines in this midterm election"

“The idea that we’ve got a lack of enthusiasm in the Democratic base, that people are sitting on their hands complaining, is just irresponsible, if they want to move forward over the next two years or six years or 10 years."

If you ask me, The President also needs to chew out the Dem Party leaders and candidates that aren’t putting in the resources to turn out the Democratic base.  For example, we spend a ton of money cracking on Guv Dude here in the Lone Star State but we are not putting in enough resources to get out the state’s Latino vote.  Of course, NOBODY EVER ASKS ME!

The new H-Town METRO CEO has laid down the law and ordered top executives to start taking METRO at least 40 times a month.   I guess the CEO wants his execs to see how the other half lives.  Of course, I hope this doesn’t mean that the execs will just hop on the light rail line by METRO headquarters and ride it down back and forth to Mia Bella or Julia’s for lunch.

What statistical feat was accomplished in baseball 69 years ago today that hasn’t occurred since then? 

Commentary didn’t have a problem with Colbert testifying before Congress.  Somebody has to talk about who is doing the hard labor to get grub on our tables.

69 years ago today, Ted Williams went 6 for 8 in a doubleheader against the Philadelphia A’s to finish the season batting a cool .406 of course and nobody has hit .400 since.

Commentary will have the DVR on to capture the “Top of the Tenth” this evening and the “Bottom of the Tenth” tomorrow on PBS which is about the latest on the greatest game ever invented.   Meanwhile, I’m sure the ‘Stros are going to do everything they can to prevent the Reds from popping the corks in our presence tonight, tomorrow, and the day after – yikes!
