The Campaign For DA

Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts

  • It's from Wonkette, but this is a crazy story. It has a legal twist, a reference to the Dallas Morning News, and the "Streisand Effect." (Thanks to a Faithful Reader.)
  • Six man football news from last weekend: Campbell 125, Fannindel 122 (and the game was stopped with seven minutes left because of injury.)
  • The University of Maryland has lost their quarterback and their backup quarterback to torn ACLs.
  • If he keeps his job, I'll be stunned:
  • I haven't had the hiccups in years yet I've been hit with them twice, hard, over the last two days. 
  • And Another (Kerrville):
  • Repeal and Replace? Those boys can't get anything right.
  • I finally listened to a Tony Romo broadcast (when I went back to try and watch a recording of 60 Minutes). I thought he would be as boring as all get out. Instead, he is over the top and irritating. 
  • The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission says CBS 11 discriminated against Tammy Dombeck. I vote for her. 
  • As I predicted, Crazy Roy Moore beat Trump's selected candidate, Luther Strange, in Alabama last night. Trump then deleted all the tweets of support for Strange and then posted this.
  • As I predicted months ago, the Rangers were eliminated from the playoffs last night. 
  • When I first started to drive, my dad gave me one of his credit cards and told me to only use it in an emergency if my car broke down and it was an emergency. I never used it. 
  • Any chance the jury didn't know the difference between millions and billions? One thing the plaintiffs were mad about was that "the bank took years to release basic interests in art, home furnishings, jewelry, and notably, Mr. Hopper's collection of 6,700 golf putters and 900 bottles of wine."
  • The 660 The Answer radio host Mark Davis this morning on Dale Hansen's Unplugged about the NFL protests: "Who does he think he is!?"
  • The Harris County DA's Office will no longer prosecute drug cases when the lab return says it was only a "trace".

Just curious Barry concerning the Tammy Dombeck issue....In your mind what were the two main concerns you had about this issue?

RTG needs to eat at McDonalds every day for 30 days.

She was the "Gridlock Buster".........we all joked that she was the "Bra Buster". Based on some of your more recent pics......a 42 year old RTG would be a mere pup. It's a bitch to get old!!!

After I listen to the Musers and then visit LL, it is almost like a recap show.

Romo is a little over the top sometimes, probably still feels like the ball is in his hands as he's watching other quarterbacks play. "He's open...he's open!" was one of his instinctive, over the top comments this past week. But, he is doing a pretty darn good job overall of adding value and insight. I'm sure his new coaches are helping him refine.

I don't see anything wrong with today's RTG. Not everybody likes fatties.

ol' Dombeck has been in broadcasting long enough to know that youth and looks are highly important to ratings.
On-air experience matters, but experience in traffic reporting? Meh
The current reporter is a Fort Worth native, so she's familiar with Metroplex roads. And it probably takes less than 10% of your brain power to echo reports of accidents and tie-ups, and show camera views of the same.

Dale Hansen thinks he is Randy Galloway and you are the love child of the two. The reality is no one puts much stock in any of what the three of you say. But grouchy old men are entertaining. Stay old, grouchy and delusional BG.

Skippy, Way to go out on a limb in predicting a Moore win in Alabama. Every Tom, Dick and Joe were predicting he would win. Don't break your arm patting yourself on the back.

Hey Skippy, Stay Woke!! Has Trump launched nukes into North Korea yet? Has Trump fired Sessions yet?

Those things on Tammy are very large. I have never seen fingers that long on a woman.

I'm really glad the Rangers refused to swap schedules with the Astros after Hurricane Harvey. They made it clear they were protecting the interest of fans by keeping their end of season Homestand. Too bad the stadium is barely full and plenty of $2 seats are available.

Jammed traffic reporting has never been the same since Tammy left.

Now wait a minute on that And Another story. The student touched her. She didn't touch the student. Isn't that okay?

I found myself drinking late one night with Tammy Dombeck at a restaurant I had remodeled.Nobody ever hired her for the intellectual prowess she puts forward, but she does bring a couple interesting attributes to the table.

Tammy, have you ever considered the exciting world of stripping and being arm candy? Call me if interested.

I guess CBS 11 will know better in the future than to ever hire an older worker as an interim anything.

"If he keeps his job, I'll be stunned:"

Hey Skippy, Was LBJ able to keep his job after signing the Civil Rights Act when he said, "We've got them niggers in our pocket for the next 200 years."?

This is where Skippy trots out his "but that was a different time" hypocrisy!
