Instead of the Toomey Super PAC running ads in Iowa, maybe they ought save their money and throw Guv Dude a lifeline.  Dude’s latest video from his speech in New Hampshire this past Friday have folks opining that Dude is on drugs, on booze, or just plain losing it.  It looks like he’s playing himself on SNL – yikes!   Toomey is Dude’s fixer-in-chief.  Maybe it is time for Toomey to bring Dude home and park his arse for the rest of the season.  Dude’s best day was his first day and it has been all downhill since then. 
Check out what burkablog is saying about Dude.

Speaking of Day of the Dead, watching Herman Cain yesterday do some ‘splaning was hilarious.  At first he was defiant but that didn’t last long.  Then he said there wasn’t a settlement then there was.  Then he threw that old witch hunt and liberal media lines.  Then he said it was all about talking about a woman’s height.  Who says size doesn’t matter – awwww!  

Just like Dude, Herman Cain looks like he too is not-ready-for-prime- time.   You have to wonder about the idolization factor of Tea Baggers. 

Yesterday I received a mailer from Bolivar Fraga for At-Large 2.

The At-Large 2 race is going to be interesting.  Who gets into a runoff is anybody’s guess. 

Commentary is looking forward to the new radio station that will be all news.  I hope it is a success. 

Who holds the record for playing the most regular season games without ever going to a World Serious?

Yesterday was the eighth day to Vote Early.  Here is a comparison after Day 8 in 2009.

West Gray (3385 in 2009/ 2736 in 2011)

Moody Park (719 in 2009/ 462 in 2011)

Acres Homes (809 in 2009/ 656 in 2011)

Ripley (304 in 2009/ 440 in 2011)

HCCS (387 in 2009/ 522 in 2011)

Bayland (1835 in 2009/ 1501 in 2011)

Mendenhall (2203 in 2009/ 1493 in 2011)

Main Office on Preston (628 in 2009/ 528 in 2011)

HCCS and now Ripley are the only ones of the eight that is seeing an increase after Day 8. 

Most of the other City Early Voting locations are seeing decreases but things are getting better.

Rafael Palmeiro of course played 2,831 games without ever playing in a World Serious.

Tony La Russa is hanging up his skipper hat.  I’m going to miss him.  He had a great run with the White Sox, the A’s, and San Luis.  I wonder if he’ll wear his shades when he goes into the Hall of Fame.

The ‘Stros are saying that since shortstop Clint Barmes is now a free agent he probably won’t be in the line-up next season and that’s all I have from The Yard.
