I would want to think that if Bin Laden was taken out on January 19, 2009, we would all be high fiving and give some congrats to 43.  I would hope that partisanship would take the day off.   The Lite Guv put out a statement yesterday and thanked 43 and The President and in that order.  Come on!   43 was probably asleep when he got the call from The President Sunday night about 30 minutes before the rest of the world knew.  Like I said yesterday, 43 should get a mention but shouldn’t be the first to get kudos. 

Guv Dude showed a complete lack of class when he didn’t give The President a mention in his statement.  Heck, even Little Dick Cheney came out and gave The President a shout out.

Yesterday was a day for all of us to give each other a high five and thank the folks that put together one of the most successful missions in the history of the U.S. of A.  – from The President, to the SEALs, to the intelligence officers, and all the others that were in the loop.  Yesterday was a day to put partisanship on the back burner.

It’s too bad the Guv Dude and the Lite Guv decided to act like chicken s__ts.

On showing the photos of a dead Bin Laden, I think we need to see them.  Show me the pictures!

In 2005, this MLBer was drafted in the First Round of the MLB Amateur Player Draft along with Ryan Braun, Ryan Zimmerman, Justin Upton, and Troy Tulowitzki.  This September 11 he will be celebrating his 28th BD visiting the Tampa Bay Rays.  He’s an outfielder so who I am I talking about?

Speaking of BDs, H-Town CM James Rodriguez will be celebrating his tonight at Leon’s Lounge in Midtown at 1006 McGowen from 5:30 pm to 7 pm.

Commentary ran into CM Jolanda Jones yesterday and she had on a cool shirt and cap to commemorate Bin Laden’s passing.  I don’t think Guv Dude or the Lite Guv would ever man-up and wear the gear.

Red Sox center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury of course was born on September 11, 1983.

Last night the ‘Stros were rained out so they will try again this evening.

It feels as if we should all take the day off.   I never thought I would see this day.  I actually thought the arsehole would die of old age.

There are going to be some that still are not going to believe he’s a goner so I hope they took some pictures.  They also better release the photos.

Some folks are extending their congratulatory remarks to include 43.   I’m OK with that as long as they give full credit to President Obama.

You have to figure that The President and his team look stronger on the national security front.

Just like a lousy catch, Bin Laden got tossed overboard.

Obama 1, Osama 0!

Way to go Mr. President!  You got scoreboard!

Commentary takes full credit for driving the discussion in the Lone Star State on the Dem Party’s failure to engage the Latino voter.  The Texas observer ran a piece on the subject last week.   Check it out.

Excuses, excuses, excuses!

Who holds the ‘Stros record for career shutouts tossed?

Hello Ace!

Dante and Lucas have them a new baby brother.  His name is Andrew Caysen Estes.  His mom Rachel is calling him Caysen.  His brothers are calling him Ace.  I checked him out yesterday and he has a full head of dark hair.

Dante scooped up his second career foul ball yesterday afternoon.  Shortly after, a high foul ball came at us and I reached for it and it hit my hand and bounced off and landed in a kid’s tub of popcorn.  The kid wasn’t paying attention and didn’t even know how the ball landed there – go figure.

Larry Dierker of course tossed 25 shutouts as a ‘’Stro.

Numero 45 hit a three run dinger yesterday then got dinged up going for a fly ball.

The Chron predicted the team would go 11-16 in April and we went 10-17 as we head to Cinncy for three.
