next time anybody in a WH pool gets thrown out of the pool for doing their damn job the entire pool needs to drag up and refuse to go.

Nope. Donald Trump’s people would probably prefer this.

And this one:

Just launched our first ad. Entitled “Showing Up,” it’s filmed using an iPhone and was created entirely with live stream footage from our travels to all 254 counties of Texas. Watch and RT to share.


Friday night debates? At least Sen. Ted Cruz is honest that he’s a chicken, fraidy cat and cowardly. At least he admits it. I have a bit more respect for Sen. Cruz. This is Texas and everybody knows what happens in Texas on Friday nights in the fall.

Alex Bregman of course had 2 dingers in the 2017 ALDS and another 2 in the World Series.

We are back to 4 ½ behind the Red Sox and have today off
