Of the active MLBers, who has the highest career batting average?

I will say it again. If Senator Bernie Sanders pulls it off and becomes our nominee, I am all in for Bernie.

If I prefer someone else at this point in the primary, why does Bernie have to call me an “establishment Democrat.” Maybe some folks inside the Beltway don’t like Bernie’s arse, but what happened on Super Tuesday was certainly not inside the Beltway related.

I don’t consider Sen. Amy Klobuchar, #BetoForTexas, Cong. Jim Clyburn, Mayor Pete, State Sen. Carol Alvarado, The Dean, Cong. Veronica Escobar and Austin Mayor Steve Adler inside the Beltway players.

What happened on Super Tuesday was one of those things that political scientists will be studying for years. It happens.

Everyone should know by now that Commentary has been extremely critical of the national and state Democratic Parties. That hardly makes me an “establishment Democrat.”

Former Vice President Joe Biden won some states he didn’t visit or spend a lot of dough in. Democratic voters are having their say. That is how primaries are supposed to work.

What is hilarious about Bernie’s attack on establishment Democrats is that his new ad features President Barack Obama who most folks still consider the head of the Democratic Party. Hilarious!

The Trib has a good piece on the long lines debacle on Election Day in Harris County here: https://www.texastribune.org/2020/03/04/harris-countys-texas-southern-university-voting-delays-what-happened/.

The Chron also has a good story on the lines.

Check out this story about the fake candidate who forced a runoff in the HD 142 state house race: https://abc13.com/5986131/?ex_cid=TA_KTRK_TW&taid=5e60f34605296a0001044d9d&utm_campaign=trueAnthem:+Trending+Content&utm_medium=trueAnthem&utm_source=twitter.

This needs to be investigated by law enforcement. If the candidate doesn’t exist, how did she get on the ballot? Don’t you have to produce an ID when you file? How did she pay? Does the local Democratic Party office have security cameras they can review? This is messed up.

My March Beatles calendar with lyrics features:

Hey Jude,
Don’t let me down
You have found her, now go and get her
Remember to let her into your heart
Then you can start to make it better.

My other Beatles calendar is a 1964 photo of the lads.

Miguel Cabrera and Jose Altuve lead active MLBers with a .315 career batting average of course.

Opening Day is three weeks from today. I am still not ready.
