Just Smells Bad

Last night KTRK-TV aired another Ted Oberg and Trent Seibert piece on the key players involved with the H-Town airport contracts that the Mayor ordered to be re-bid. Here is the piece: http://abc13.com/news/airport-chief-teed-up-with-execs-who-won-piece-of-$15b-deal/1250671/.

In watching the piece, I could not find a smoking gun. It did smell very bad though.

It looks like Ted Oberg has the airport honcho playing a lot of defense and that is never a good sign.  it kind of puzzles me that no one over at the city is stepping up to give the airport honcho some PR guidance.

The Chron has a front page story today on the latest shenanigans from Texas’ Ag Commissioner Sid Miller. How come none of the state’s GOP leaders step up and call him out?

These two ‘Stros each have 70 career dingers. Name the two?

Some are saying it is sexist for Donald Trump to call Megyn Kelley “Crazy Megyn”. I wonder what Crazy Horse would think about this if he were still around?

The following gave me a huge (like Bernie says) chuckle yesterday. From CNN:

Prominent conservatives led by Erick Erickson on Thursday called for a unity ticket and a convention fight to stop Republican front-runner Donald Trump, a sign of the growing desperation in the party establishment to find an alternative to the billionaire businessman.

“If that unity ticket is unable to get 1,237 delegates prior to the convention, we recognize that it took Abraham Lincoln three ballots at the Republican convention in 1860 to become the party’s nominee and if it is good enough for Lincoln, that process should be good enough for all the candidates without threats of riots,” Erickson wrote in a statement after conservatives gathered in Washington to discuss ways to thwart Trump’s march to the nomination.

The reason I chuckle is because all these groups have help create the environment that Trump hijacked. He stole their hate and vitriol and took it to another level. Good luck getting it back.

I know it is a little early but last night on CNN, John King detailed on the Magic Wall how Trump could beat Secretary Hillary Clinton. Like I said, it is a little early, but yikes!

Evan Gattis and Luis Valbuena each have 70 career dingers of course.

In 13 days, the Brewers visit The Yard to wrap up Spring Training. I am ready.
