The Campaign For DA


Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts

  • Liberally Lean Pick 'Em Tourney. We have a new winner for the name of a bracket: "Barry and Konni's Love Child" which is a reference to Konni Burton who I have publicly and correctly said is the dumbest Texas legislator in the history of Texas. (And, Sir!, in reference to another bracket name, that reference to what Mrs. LL might have in the boat is so offensive!)
  • Trump won Florida last night. It's over! The Establishment can't stop him. This is the most entertaining and historic election ever. 
  • Marco Rubio quit and said at the press conference that it "wasn't God's plan". So God's plan is for Trump? God help us. 
  • Shout out to the Texas Court System Appellate People: You have to file a docketing statement online and must use Internet Explorer to do it? Moronic. Is someone getting a kick back?
  • The President will announce a Supreme Court nominee today.  It may be Sri Srinivasan (cool name) who is a United States Circuit Judge and a former Supreme Court clerk. The Senate confirmed him as a judge by a vote of 97–0 in 2013. The Republican controlled Senate will now start sweating. How do you not approve him now? 
  • Dear Sweet Bridgeport (the place where I grew up on the mean streets thereof): Do you really need to have on 380 speed signs that go from 70 to 60 to 45 to 40. #SpeedTrap
  • I went in Brookshire's grocery store the other day. Pretty, pretty, pretty good. 
  • The 7th Grader In The House had dental surgery yesterday and got drugged up to no end. Mrs. LL filmed it, and I'm begging her to let me post it. It might be funnier than "David After Dentist".
  • Jerry Lewis turns 90 today. He went crazy in that Telethon in his last years as host which led to its demise. And what ever happened to all that money they raised? (And I've always thought his old movies were awful and that Jim Carrey was his equivalent for our generation.)
