The GOP Gamble

City of H-Town Council Member Amanda Edwards is in the race for U.S. Senator. Dems have some pretty good candidates in this race.

Ok. Here is where we are. Commentary has got this figured out. Donald Trump and his GOP are willing to accept full throttle the racist label and in return convince their base, Fox News and Breitbart, that the four Democratic U.S. Congresswomen of color are the face of the Democratic Party. I get that. Here is where their gamble goes awry. Sometime next Spring, the Democratic Party nominee will be determined and she, I say she, will be the face of the Democratic Party – period. Game changer for sure. The GOP will then be solidly the party of racists. Stew on that, please. Not a good gamble.

For those who were making up excuses for Donald Trump for his tweet Sunday morning and saying it was not racist, you can’t deny the “send her back” chants last night in front of him at his rally weren’t. Shut up, you racists.

Soledad O’Brien tweeted this after the “send her back” chants:

This is racist. If you’re chanting this, you’re a racist. If you’re a journalist asking white people if this is racist – you’re an idiot

I retweeted this Peter Gammons tweet with a comment yesterday:

Xander Bogaerts goes into Wednesday night leading all SS in WAR, OPS, w/Obama, wRC+, slugging…


Then someone retweeted a response which leads to today’s MLB question. Name the Astro whose Dad is a former Chair of a State Democratic Party?

They have a name now. Commentary is talking about The Squad. This is to the media, the GOP, and establishment Democrats. If they looked like the Dixie Chicks, the vitriol would be at a considerably lower temperature.

A GOP U.S. Senator from Louisiana called them the “four horsewomen of the apocalypse.” I wonder if he even knows about the original Four Horsemen? If he does, he certainly is elevating them, pardon the pun, to a level of biblical proportions.

Commentary participated in a live phone survey yesterday. They asked about Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnel, the Democratic Party, Sen. John Cornyn, MJ Hegar, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, @AOC, immigration, national security, healthcare, choice and the economy.

Commentary is not going to check out that face app that makes you look older. I don’t want to see how I will look when I’m a goner.

Commentary participated in a survey yesterday that the Astros sent over. Two things I picked up from the survey. They are thinking about making The Yard cashless and all purchases by credit or debit card. Tropicana Field in St. Pete started going cashless this season. The Astros also asked me about a proposed Thirsty Thursdays where drinks will be discounted from a kazillion dollars to a reduced kazillion dollars on Thursdays.

Sam Bregman, Alex’s Dad, was the Chair of the New Mexico Democratic Party a few years ago of course. I didn’t know that.

We sure needed that win last night.
