Not Happening

Commentary has said before that it won’t be a cakewalk for Sec. Hillary Clinton this fall against Donald Trump. Remember, she is a public figure who has endured 25 years of attacks from the GOP. She has also taken hits the past year from Sen. Bernie Sanders. That’s why Commentary is glad to see the following from CNN this morning:

California Governor Jerry Brown lent his support to Hillary Clinton Tuesday, saying it was the only way to “stop the dangerous candidacy of Donald Trump.”

She needs to win California next week – period. You have to figure that after next Tuesday, Sanders will not be speaking in front of huge crowds. He won’t be getting as much media coverage. He won’t be running TV ads. If Clinton does not win in California, Sanders will have an excuse to keep on doing his thing. Of course, what that looks like without any primaries left is a big question.   She needs to take care of business in California.

‘Stros pitcher Collin McHugh tossed his first complete game ever yesterday. How many complete games does Dallas Keuchel have in his career?

These tweets created some political buzz this past weekend:

Bill Kristol ‏@BillKristol May 29

Just a heads up over this holiday weekend: There will be an independent candidate–an impressive one, with a strong team and a real chance.


Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump 23h23 hours ago

If dummy Bill Kristol actually does get a spoiler to run as an Independent, say good bye to the Supreme Court!

Bill Kristol is a smart fella but I don’t see this happening. I don’t see how they think they could pull this off and win unless they had a candidate with moderate views who could pull votes from both Clinton and Trump. It is also very hard to keep a secret in politics these days. We would already know by now who the candidate is. I also read where last year Kristol predicted the Vice President Joe Biden would be running in 2016.  Like I said, not happening.

Then there is this:

That’s a wrap on the least relaxing Memorial Day weekend in a while! Sure @rfelliott and @jenradcliffe feel the same way 🙂 #TiredChicks

I have to hand it to the local media on their coverage of this year’s flooding. Talk about soggy work conditions.

Dallas Keuchel of course has nine career complete games.

Let’s see. The team was 7-17 in April and are 16-12 in May. We have won 6 out of our last 7. Nice.
