blank'/> Liberally Lean From The Land Of Dairy Queen: Random Monday Morning Thoughts

Random Monday Morning Thoughts


  • "I've never tricked up a a flower before." -- Third Grader In The House allowed to fold open the petals of a dying rose. 
  • Question in the house yesterday: Are there more indoor or outdoor Easter egg hunts? I said outdoor. Mrs. LL questioned my credentials on the matter. 
  • Mrs. LL failed sports question after a Texas Ranger got a big hit in Friday's game: "Was that Yu Darvish?"
  • If you have at least two people looking a radar on their smartphones, both will believe their radar is the most accurate. 
  • You couldn't help but feel great for Master's winner Bubba Watson yesterday -- especially after this teary eyed quote moments after the victory: "I never get this far in my dreams."
  • But that was one funny missed handshake between Watson and the chairman of Augusta National.
  • You'd think Bubba Watson would have a smokin' hot wife. Uh, not so much.
  • WBAP has deleted any reference to Mark Davis on its website. If I'm one of the boys over at The Ticket, I'm a little nervous that parent company Cumulus believes there are no sacred cows. 
  • Mrs. LL pulled out a big hat yesterday for Easter. I got tickled at myself for immediately going into a Michael Scott southern accent from an Office episode and proclaiming, "I do declare!!"
  • I'm a huge fan of The Three Stooges, and I absolutely cringe at every commercial for that new movie.
  • I don't think teen bride Courtney Stodder understands how you are supposed to dress at Easter.
  • Thought about Mike Wallace's death: He was down at Cowboys camp a few years back to do a segment on then coach Bill Parcells. Later in the day, Parcells was asked in a press conference who he most admired and Parcells said Mike Wallace (who he allegedly didn't know was in the audience.) Sucking up, no doubt, so that Wallace would put him in a good light on 60 Minutes. It worked.
  • I can't exactly say I've got a lot of others to judge it by, but this has to be the worst cheap shot on a guy standing on second in a community college game in the history of ever. 
  • Hey you second and third place winners in the Liberally Lean Tourney, you better email me back or you're going to forfeit your prizes to those below you. 
  • I got to see the last hour or so of The Today Show on Friday- the part which is co-hosted by Kathy Lee Gifford.   It's like a Saturday Night Live bit making fun of Kathy Lee Gifford.

Why are there Easter egg hunts? Chickens are not related to the resurrection. John did not say "Behold the chicken of God" when Jesus came to be baptized. Why do Christians follow this pagan custom on such a holy occasion? I believe that Easter was the goddess of fertility so that might be where the chicken and rabbit came from.

Before my grandfather passed we had a conversation about news and trusted choices as public figures.

His comment was, back in the day when they were highly respected and made the channel they were seen on you didn't know if they were a democrat or republican.

Now you don't have to listen very long to know which side they stand on.

Hey Bubear...

I stopped by Wise County Liquor in Bport on Saturday. I was given a secret coded message to pass on to you.

"The crown is in the castle. The court jester has the key."

why would you (or anybody) assume that Bubba Watson has a hot wife?

Do you really think that Parcells has sucked up to anybody in the past twenty years, or possibly ever? Or worried about being portrayed in a negative light? Mike Wallace can make just about anybody look bad with the proper slant, but I doubt he could get away with it during a face-to-face with Parcells and not need some repair work on the seat of his pants

I think the boys over at the Ticket are safe. Their HSOs aren't polarizing, at least not in the political sense. Plus, they draw really good ratings

I don't think Courtney Stodden knows how you are supposed to dress for any event. She's like a human lawn ornament. Whatever the holiday - the papparazzi can start clicking away because she's got the perfect outfit for the occasion

I was starting to tire of the ads for the new Stooges movie, until I saw a new one that had Sofia Vergara in it (but not only for that, or those reasons!) She says "Those thrrree ee-dee-ots are here!" And somebody says "The Kardashian sisters?"
Funny!

Hey Green, your are totally wrong on Bubba Watson's wife and Courtney Stodder! She is a hey now and Courtney Stodder does know how to dress for easter.

That was Bubba's Mom and I think she looks great.

Hot is in the eye of the beholder She is beautiful and looks like she belongs outdoors with her husband.
Way ahead of some of your postings.

I googled up some more pics of Watson's wife, not that bad. She kinda reminds me of that chick off of Dharma and Greg.

There was a time when the four most feared words in the English language were "Mike Wallace is here."

Now the four most feared words in the English language is "James O'Keefe is here." I loved seeing Eric Holder get punked.

To the sports idiot that said there was no appeal process for Sean Peyton:

There was an appeals process. He lost the appeal, but there was a process.

"Was that Yu Darvish?". "No, I thought it as you. Must have been one of the kids". "What??" Fail...

The blond Mrs. Watson, is not bad looking--for an ordinary human being like most of us! Don't be so tough. (The lady in the newspaper pic is his mother, right?)

Bob bullock would have made mincemeat of Mike Wallace.

I also thing Bubba's wife is a "hey now" and probably Bubba thinks the same thing. Otherwise, he would go "Tiger" and do something about it. Also, impressive athlete in her on right. Beautiful does not have to always be eye candy. Like Palin. Ha Ha.
