The Campaign For DA


Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

  • One thing the Baylor Bears and the Republicans have in common: There is a slight hope for this Fall but, in reality, this is going to be a long four years as they both try to re-invent themselves.
  • Donald Trump's entrance at the convention last night vs. The Undertaker's entrance for wrestling. Who ya got?
  • And it can't be stressed enough: The President in Idiocracy was former "five time ultimate smackdown wrestling champion", President Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho.
  • I went to bed hearing the pundits say that Melania Trump "knocked it out of the park". I woke up with "she stole it from Michelle Obama's 2008 speech." (Here's the amazing video mashup of the plagiarism everyone is talking about.) How did they screw that up? 
  • But her greatest nugget, which makes me smile to no end, was straight out of Rick Astley. 
  • And with her great accent, all I could hear from her was, "Must get pesky moose and squirrel." (That's some old man humor for ya -- and, fittingly, I stole that joke.)
  • At this point, the Democrats could probably just shorten their convention to just Hillary walking to the podium, holding up her hand, and saying, "We're good. Thanks."
  • No one puts me over the edge more than Rudy Giuliani. Last night he said, "What I did for New York, Donald Trump will do for America!" What's that? Walk down the streets for a photo op while it burns instead of doing your job?
  •  House Speaker Paul Ryan spoke to the Texas delegation this morning. What about Trump? "Sometime we root for a different team in the same conference," he said.
  • I didn't know Trump had a son named Barron. 
  •  Dallas Fire and Rescue has given up the search of trying to locate the body of the SMU officer who reportedly drowned in Turtle Creek. 
  • What's the construction project off the square in Decatur (east side - across from the post office and the probation department)?
  • This morning: "Patient crashes ambulance into Dallas warehouse." Two days ago: "Man arrested after taking ambulance on joy ride to Jack in the Box in Old East Dallas."
