In the Flesh?

Desperation, desperation, desperation was the word most used yesterday by talking heads on both sides of the aisle to describe the Sen. Ted Cruz VP move.

This is from a story on NBC News’ website:

John Boehner is not a big fan of Ted Cruz.

So much so, in fact, that the former Republican House Speaker told an audience at Stanford University Wednesday that the Texas senator is “Lucifer in the flesh” and a “miserable son of a b***h.”

This is certainly not a surprise.

And here is this from ABC News’ website:

At a town hall at Georgetown University, (U.S. House Speaker Paul) Ryan was questioned by one young Republican who said he’s been “very dismayed by this year’s election so far.” 

“Why is that?” Ryan asked. 

The Georgetown student said young Republicans “find it very difficult” to support either of the top two candidates for his party’s nomination, New York businessman Donald Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas. 

“Unfortunately, this is not the first time I’ve had this question,” Ryan remarked.

I am kind of thinking that Carly Fiorina is probably the only person that would accept to be Cruz’s running mate.   A whole lot of GOP leaders don’t like the guy.

This is what Sen. John Cornyn said about Cruz: “Clearly, he didn’t come here to remain in the Senate. He came here to run for president. And I think that perhaps explains the difference in tactics.”

So if Cruz loses in Indiana next week, will he come back to Texas and start being a senator? He hasn’t yet! I have felt since 2013 that we have only had one U.S. Senator. Haven’t you?

The White Sox at 16-6 and Cubbies at 15-5, have the best records in MLB today. Have the two ever met in the World Serious?

At the Donald Trump rally in Indiana yesterday, Bob Knight said this: “They said Harry Truman wasn’t presidential. And damn, he was one of 3 best presidents in history. And Trump will be one of those.”

Three best? Let’s see, Washington, Lincoln, and FDR.   Ok, Truman did preside over the end of WWII, made the decision to use the bomb, and led the effort to help put the planet back together after the war, but three best?

I have been saying this. Check this tweet:

.@edhenry: Democratic insiders “are not so sure [Trump]’ll be as easy to beat as the supporters of the Clinton team believe.” #OReillyFactor

Uber is threatening to leave H-Town. A lot of folks use those guys. I saw a bunch of them drop off folks at The Yard on Opening Day. If they want to leave a good thing in H-Town, then adios baby. Let them go.

In the 1906 World Serious of course, the White Sox beat the Cubbies in six.

News Flash!  We won last night.
