“Let the joyous news be spread, the wicked old red light cameras at last are dead!”

That’s kind of what the Kubosh fella said yesterday after the H-Town City Council voted yesterday 13-1 to pull the plug on the red light cameras.  Balls of Holly was the only no vote and CM Oliver Pennington was absent.   Then the Kubosh fella said:

“This is a day of independence for all the H-Town folks and their descendants.  Yes, let the joyous news be spread, the wicked old red light cameras at last are dead!”

The focus will now shift to the courthouse.  Then the H-Town City Attorney said:

But we’ve got to verify it legally, to see…to see…, if they…if they…are morally, ethically, spiritually, physically, positively, absolutely, undeniably and reliably dead!

Yesterday, Gallup came out with a national polls saying Guv Dude had a commanding 29-17 lead over Mitt Romney.  Burkablog then made a pretty bold statement by predicting that Guv Dude will face off with The President next year.  Check out what Burkablog says:

Perry is going to be the Republican nominee. His coalition is pretty obvious from these numbers. It’s the South, the evangelicals, and the tea party geezers. What’s more, these elements of his constituency appear to be fiercely loyal. We’ve all seen this before. The only way he can lose in the primary is to make a huge mistake — but he doesn’t make huge mistakes — or be brought down by a major scandal — but he has never been implicated in a major scandal. We might as well skip the primary and go straight to the general election.

I don’t know about that.  Dude still has to be on the stage with his GOP opponents and answer questions about the Trans Texas Land Grab, HPV, and paperless students if you know what I mean.  Of course, Burkablog knows what he is talking about.

How many members of the current ‘Stros coaching staff were picked in the First Round of the MLB Amateur Player Draft to start their professional baseball careers?  Also name them.

The Libyan rebels rummaged through Gadhafi’s personal stash yesterday and found out he has the hots for former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice.  I don’t have a problem with that since I don’t think they offer the Playboy Channel on Libya Comcast.

Little Dick Cheney is back and wants his Big Dick status back by publishing a memoir that will be out for sale next week.  Little Dick will tell all and let it all hang out.

There are four former MLB First Round Draft Picks on the current ‘Stros staff or course and they are Bullpen Coach Jamie Quirk (1972, Royals), First Base Coach Bobby Meahcam (1981, San Luis), Third Base Coach Dave Clark (1983, Tribe), and Pitching Coach Doug Brocail (1986, Padres).  Meacham is celebrating his 51st BD today.  All those first round picks and all we have us is 42 Ws – oh noooooo!
