Ole Miss Rebels Vs Alabama Crimson Tide: Landshark’s Gonna Need A Bigger Fin

For the second time since 1848 when the University of Mississippi was established, the school may be changing its mascot.  Colonel Reb was the original sideline mascot but was retired and replaced by a black bear.  Now, the student body will determine whether the bear goes by the wayside as well.  In 2010 the bear was chosen in a three-way tie with the landshark as the runner-up.  Ole Miss lore tells us the landshark is based on a “fins up” hand motion started by late Rebels middle linebacker Tony Fein.
Swapping out the mascot isn’t the only change at the school. Gone is starting QB Chad Kelly. Gone is Head Coach Hugh Freeze. Gone is defensive mastermind Dave Wommack. Gone is the Rebel swagger
Freeze was unceremoniously fired on the heels of a scandal involving calls to an escort service, violating his responsibility legislation and lack of institutional control.  The Rebels also face a self-imposed post-season ban and scholarship reductions as they await a final decision from the NCAA on several very serious infractions that have rocked the athletic department.  Talk about falling on hard times; every game this season means absolutely nothing.
You’ll pardon me as I bask in the glow of their calamity.  It's still hard to shake the memories of the recent history of the series. You see, on a September night in Tuscaloosa in 2015, Ole Miss became just the second team (following LSU in 2010 and 2011) to beat the Crimson Tide in consecutive years under Coach Saban.  In the 120-year history of the series, the Rebels had never taken two straight.  That game was Bama’s only loss of its national championship run that year.
The Ole Miss team will board a bus for the three-hour ride to Tuscaloosa dreaming of those back-to-back victories knowing there’s not a snowflake’s chance in hell of whipping the SEC West juggernaut. And Bama, well Bama will carry the nightmare of those two meetings with them on the field of play.  There will be no landshark taunts by Ole Miss.  The Rebs can save that crap for another team and another time.

I Know The Feeling

The way things have gone, she won't go back to France either.

The Ghost of Trayvon Martin Takes a Knee

Halloween is approaching and the stores are filling with candy, skeletons, and not a few ghosts. One specter once again raising its ugly head, is the ghost of Trayvon Martin.

In addition to the Take a Knee controversy, or complementary to it, four NFL players have submitted a ten page memo...manifesto, if you will, to Roger Goodell, NFL Commissioner. to address
the silence following our individual and collective demonstrations around the national anthem to raise awareness to racial inequality and issues surrounding criminal justice reform has been met with inconsistencies in press coverage and perceived lack of support.
(emphasis mine) "Criminal justice reform"?  Are they suggesting better communication between NFL players and their parole officers? There most certainly is racial inequality in the NFL. The percentage of black players far surpasses the percentage of blacks in the general population.

But, let's examine the basis for their call for a month dedicated to their particular vision of social justice awareness..."like breast cancer"! Oh, and pony up some dough to make this kabuki theater work.

You have to admire the chutzpah of a bunch of millionaires going hat in hand to NFL management to finance those things they feel deeply enough, just not deeply enough to pay for it out of their own pockets.

But, what sparked the outrage?

Irony Is Wasted On The Stupid

In a year where the Dallas Cowboys went from wanting to a wear helmet stickers to honor five murdered Dallas cops to protesting against cops, fans of professional football are now witness to self-righteous, overprivileged athletes who disrespect this country, her people and her history.
I used to idolize the Green Bay Packers, but then I’m a bit of a dinosaur.  I came to love the Packers because Bart Starr, the quarterback from 1956 to 1971, was a graduate of Alabama.  Anyone who follows this blog knows well that I am a rabid Crimson Tide fan.  Starr was the only quarterback in NFL history to lead a team to five league championships before Patriots QB Tom Brady tied the record in 2016.  Starr and the Packers epitomized clean play on the field and wholesome values off the field.
I have written on the subject of Colin Kaepernick numerous times but I doubt I will waste another moment or expend the energy banging away on a keyboard about him after today.
Whether you agree with the president’s characterization of protesting players taking a knee as “sons of bitches” or not it is important to remember Kaepernick, Stephen Curry and LeBron James, et al are the inciters who turned our beloved sports into a political battlefield.
"The Star-Spangled Banner and American athletics have a nearly indissoluble marriage. Hatched during one war, institutionalized during another, this song has become so entrenched in our sports identity that it's almost impossible to think of one without the other.” 
“Those chords were ringing loudly on Sept. 17, 2001, the day Major League Baseball resumed following 9/11. The country was in mourning, hurting in ways it could hardly have imagined a week earlier. And when the nation collectively decided to right itself, to acknowledge tragedy while reclaiming everyday life, it turned to sports -- and to the anthem. Across MLB, teams surrounded the song with tributes to the victims and the country's public servants. In Los Angeles, police officer Rosalind Iams sang the song while members of the Dodgers and Padres helped firefighters and police officers unfurl a colossal stars and stripes that stretched almost entirely across the playing field. That same night in Pittsburgh, two members of the Air Force Reserve were called on to sing the anthem as spectators donned ‘I Love New York’ buttons. And in every ballpark for weeks afterward, tears were shed over what it took Francis Scott Key's lyrics to remind them of: ‘Our flag was still there.’"
The song is sacred and its first unbreakable bond with the sports world began in 1918 during Game 1 of the World Series between the Red Sox and the Cubbies.  The assembled crowd sat silent during Boston’s 1-0 victory.  The Cubs’ front office noticed they sang along as a military band played the anthem during the seventh-inning stretch.  The band was instructed to play the anthem for the next two games with the hope of exciting fans at the ballpark.  The Red Sox took the practice a step further when the series moved back to Fenway making it a part of the pregame festivities.  
Is it a sin to be patriotic today?  It is abundantly clear the NFL and the hive mind of the left yearn to have us forget what the flag and the National Anthem stands for or where Old Glory has been─Anzio, Iwo Jima, Chosin Reservoir, Hamburger Hill, Baghdad, Ganjgal and the surface of the moon in 1969.
The progressive forces of identity politics started this poisoning of America’s favorite spectator sport.  Those who have chosen to take a knee or sit or link arms in protest are, in fact, sons of bitches.
Colin Kaepernick said, “At the end of the day the flag is just a piece of cloth and I am not going to value a piece of cloth over people’s lives.”

Memory Lane

I just thought you'd like to reminisce...One of Hillary Clinton's pals at the State Department was indicted for treason six months ago. Haven't heard anything since regarding these charges.
Candace Marie Claiborne has become the first Clinton-era State Department employee indicted on treason charges, after a federal grand jury indicted her for conspiring to defraud the U.S. government, concealing contact with foreign spies, obstructing an official proceeding, and making false statements to the FBI.
Claiborne, a veteran State Department employee who possessed a Top Secret security clearance, concealed her extensive contacts with Chinese intelligence agents, who for years lavished her with thousands of dollars in gifts as part of a pay-for-play scheme, according to a Department of Justice press release.
In addition to cash payments, Chinese spies provided Claiborne with vacations, an apartment, Apple electronics and tuition to a Chinese fashion school according to the indictment. Suggesting she learned tricks from Hillary Clinton, her former boss, Claiborne allegedly told co-conspirators to delete all emails and evidence after getting caught.
The bill of charges contains numerous felonies and Claiborne, 60, is facing spending the rest of her life behind bars, as prosecutors warn she is “the first of many” corrupt Clinton-era State Department employees that will be bought to justice by a reinvigorated DOJ.
Claiborne was arrested back on 29 Mar 17 and I am wondering if Clinton's "What Happened" book tour is an attempt to bolster her anticipated defense fund once her minions spill their guts trying to plead out to federal probation instead of prison. There should be so many birds singing that the DoJ may have to establish a witness protection aviary.

I have to rest now after rehearsing my "Ding Dong the Bitch is Dead" dance.

Your Dazzling Moment Of Zen

Jimmy Kimmel Was Fed Talking Points By Chuck Schumer

Unless you’ve been living under a rock this week, you’ve noticed the revived fight by the GOP to repeal and replace Obamacare.
The day after President Trump addressed the 72nd Session of the United Nations General Assembly, The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer was speaking at a Gates Foundation’s Goalkeepers event.
He said, “Those of you who live in countries that already have universal health care are trying to figure out what’s the controversy here.  People are trying to undo that progress for the 50th or 60th time. It’s aggravating and all of this being done without any demonstrable economic or actuarial or common-sense rationale.  It frustrates.  It’s certainly frustrating to have to mobilize every couple of months to keep our leaders from inflicting real human suffering on our constituents.”
Now you’re a smart cookie.  That last sentence is crucial: “It’s certainly frustrating to have to mobilize every couple of months to keep our leaders from inflicting real human suffering on constituents.”
That’s where late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel comes in.  His nightly monologues were spent condemning Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), authors of the Graham-Cassidy Bill which seeks to do away with the onerous Obamacare legislation.
The three episodes in which Kimmel tore apart both Cassidy—who had previously insisted that any health care bill pass a so-called “Jimmy Kimmel test”—and the bill’s specifics incited public and political opposition to the legislation.
Hence former president Obama’s snide comment about having to “mobilize” every couple of months plays into Kimmel’s role in all this.
Thanks to Lachlan Markay and others at The Daily Beast we are now learning that behind the scenes, the ABC star was getting an assist. Kimmel and his team were in touch with health care officials, charities and advocacy groups and with the office of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer who, according to a source familiar with their conversations, “provided technical guidance and info about the bill, as well as stats from various think tanks and experts on the effects of Graham-Cassidy.”
His public condemnation was biting and garnered plenty of media attention. No one has called him out on using his sick child as a prop for his Obamacare sycophancy.
“This guy, Bill Cassidy, just lied right to my face,” Kimmel said in his first show, airing a clip of his May interview with the senator. “Stop using my name,” he said to Cassidy.
Kimmel revisited the subject the next night, going after Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade for questioning why he was weighing in on health care at all.
“I don’t get anything out of this, Brian, you phony little creep. Oh, I’ll pound you when I see you. That is my blurb—that would be my blurb for your next book: ‘Brian Kilmeade is a phony little creep.’”
The following night, Kimmel went at it again, this time singling out President Donald Trump. “I guarantee he doesn’t know anything about this Graham-Cassidy bill,” he said of the president. “He doesn’t know the difference between Medicare and Medicaid. He barely knows the difference between Melania and Ivanka!”

Alabama Crimson Tide Vs Vanderbilt Commodores: Going Down With The Ship

Some guy named Chris Low who covers college football for ESPN tweeted last Saturday, “Just heard down below at Vanderbilt Stadium chants of ‘We Want Bama.’”
Interviewed after their 14-7 upset victory over No. 18 K State, Vandy defensive lineman Nifae Laelao told a reporter for WSMV, a local TV station in Nashville, “We expected to get this. When you come to our house we show you how to play some SEC ball…Alabama you’re next.”
Famous last words there Nifae.  You aren’t the first cocky jock whose mouth wrote a check his ass can’t cash.  Just ask the Washington Huskies.  For weeks after the top four teams were announced for last year’s College Football Playoff semifinal the Huskies howled, “We want Bama!”  They were embarrassed 24-7.
The game which airs on CBS at 3:30PM ET will be the Tide’s first trip to Vanderbilt since Nick Saban took over as head coach for Alabama in 2007.  Their last meeting was in Tuscaloosa in 2011 resulting in a loss to the Crimson Tide 34-0.
I have never followed Vandy football.  Why should I? Their football program has always been the SEC’s doormat. The win against the Wildcats last Saturday was its first against a ranked non-conference opponent since 1946.  Well, la-dee-freakin’-da.
I can tell you this much; Alabama owns the series against the ‘Dores.  Of the 83 games the Commodores have played against Bama, Vanderbilt has lost 61 of them.  Furthermore, Vandy’s record in 2013 was 9-4.  In 2014, it was 3-9.  In 2015, their record was 4-8 and last year it was 6-7.  Am I supposed to be impressed?  Hell nah.
Now I understand Vandy fans are all jacked up after beating Middle Tennessee, Alabama A&M and K State, but your opponent on Saturday is a beast.  Bama QB Jalen Hurts was 12 for 17 for 248 yards and 2 TDs.  He also rushed 11 times for a total of 103 yards resulting in a touchdown.  Vandy QB Kyle Shurmur was 14 for 23 for 205 yards and one TD.
ESPN’s Matchup Predictor gives the Tide a 90.7% chance of making the ‘Dores walk the plank and silencing “The Admiral”, that godforsaken horn they love to crank up when Vandy scores.

The Turn Of The Screw

According to a published report by Reuters, Chinese banks received a document from U.S. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin on Monday.  One week earlier, the United Nations Security Council approved a new resolution against Pyongyang; the ninth set of sanctions.
The contents of the document are as yet unknown but are suspected to include economic sanctions on China cutting off Beijing’s access to the U.S. financial system.
Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Ed Royce (R-CA) said, “We need to use every ounce of leverage…to put maximum pressure on this rogue regime,” adding that “time is running out.” Royce also called on Washington to target major Chinese banks, including the Agricultural Bank of China and the China Merchants Bank for dealing with Pyongyang.
Royce also said, “It’s been a long, long time of waiting for China to comply with the sanctions that we pass and, frankly, with the sanctions that the United Nations passed.” 
The committee chair went on to say the U.S. could give Chinese banks and companies “a choice between doing business with North Korea or the United States.” He added that the U.S. should also “go after banks and companies in other countries that do business with North Korea the same way.”
After four days of high-level meetings between the United States and several southeast Asian countries, President Trump announced at a luncheon with South Korea’s Moon Jae-In and Japan’s Shinzo Abe that China’s Central Bank instructed its financial institutions to stop doing business with North Korea, an action that is certain to have devastating financial consequences for the rogue regime.
As President Trump announced his newest executive order on Thursday he praised China’s president Xi Jinping for the “very bold move.”  “Our new executive order will cut off sources of revenue that fund North Korea’s efforts to develop the deadliest weapons known to humankind,” Trump said. He added that the U.S. seeks the “complete denuclearization of North Korea.”
Han Tae Song, Pyongyang's ambassador to the United Nations, was scheduled to address the United Nations General Assembly on Friday but has delayed that speech.  No doubt the DPRK has been left thoroughly discombobulated over the forces being amassed against them and are feverishly referring to a thesaurus to top yesterday’s insult of comparing President Trump to a “barking dog”.

Hillary Terrified Of The Way Someone Sits

If you don’t watch “The Late Show” on CBS you missed a news nugget.
On Tuesday night Hillary appeared with Stephen Colbert and, wonder of wonders, she took her turn in the spotlight to criticize the manner in which Russian President Vladimir Putin sits. He has a habit of “manspreading”. 
Misogyny and sexism are just two of a myriad of reasons Granny Clinton blames for her stunning election loss.  Honestly, she’s on a quest to prove discrimination where none exists.  Hillary lost because of who she is─a habitual, incorrigible liar.
At least the hag just got “manspreading” from Putin.  German Chancellor Angela Merkel not only got the “manspreading” shtick but also had to endure Putin allowing his female Labrador “Connie” in the room.  He reportedly smirked as the dog approached Merkel knowing she has a fear of dogs ever since being attacked by one.
I’ll tell you what terrifies me:  Hillary’s “fatspreading”.

The Architect Of Her Fall

“You never see the entire script of political theater until long after the last scene has been acted out.”
Ten months after the 2016 election, The Ice Cube In Heels is viewed favorably by just 36 percent of Americans.  What’s more, only 25 percent and less than half of Democrats believe she was the Democrat Party’s best choice to be the presidential nominee.
Ten days ago, “Gam Gam” began her “What Happened” book tour─a retelling of her desperately uninspiring campaign.
Hillary isn’t merely in a state of denial; politically speaking she is dead but she doesn’t know it. There is no demand for her to run again. She has been handed her political retirement papers by the American people.
She has no idea why Americans think “Clintonian” is another way of saying “dishonest.”

According to McClatchy DC Bureau, a federal appeals court will hear a case brought by Judicial Watch this Friday to make public draft indictments of Hillary Clinton from the Whitewater scandal in the 1990s.
Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group that files Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests, wants copies of the documents that the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) has declined to release. It filed a FOIA request for the documents in March 2015 and in October 2015 the group sued for the 238 pages of responsive records.
According to Judicial Watch: “The National Archives argues that the documents should be kept secret, citing grand jury secrecy and Clinton’s personal privacy.”
But Judicial Watch says that because so much about the Whitewater case has already been made public, “there is no secrecy or privacy left to protect.”
The documents in question are alleged drafts of indictments written by Hickman Ewing, the chief deputy of Kenneth Starr, the independent counsel appointed to investigate Bill and Hillary Clinton’s alleged involvement in fraudulent real estate dealings. Although others were sentenced for their role in the matter, neither Clinton was ever prosecuted.
Ewing told investigators he drafted the indictments in April 1995. According to Judicial Watch, the documents pertain to allegations that Hillary Clinton provided false information and withheld information from those investigating Whitewater.
The government is sitting on at least 12 versions of the draft indictment of Mrs. Clinton, including one “listing overt acts.” From the public record, we know that the Whitewater case centered around whether Mrs. Clinton, while First Lady, lied to federal investigators about her role in the failed $200,000 dirt road real estate deal with a corrupt Arkansas savings and loan, Madison Guaranty and the Resolution Trust Corporation that cost taxpayers $65 million. Additionally, there were charges of bribery, corruption, cover-ups, suicide and murder.
James B. McDougal, who referred to himself as “Bill Clinton’s Brutus”, was a cooperating witness in the Whitewater investigation.  His accounts of business dealings with Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton haunted them.  When McDougal died in prison in Fort Worth and with the suicide of Vince Foster four years earlier, they must have felt confident they had alluded the long arm of the law.  Not so fast.
Judicial Watch provided the court with a detailed list of grand jury and non-grand jury material that had already been made public. If there ever was a valid claim to grand jury secrecy in this closely scrutinized case, it is long gone.

American Patience Is Not Infinite

You could see the delegates in the great hall of the United Nations flapping their gums as they leaned in to the person seated next to them as they expressed their contempt for President Trump’s long-standing habit of demeaning enemies with disparaging nicknames.
The assembled parasitic, anti-American, left-wing poster children for bureaucratic corruption whispered their contempt for the truth.  Just two days before the 72nd Session of the General Assembly the President tweeted:
If North Korea’s maniacal Kim Jong Un continues his nuclear blackmail─threatening to “envelop” Guam with missiles and launching a “nuclear counterattack the U.S. cannot cope with”─President Trump warned the tin pot dictator the United States “will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea.  Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime.”
Former Ambassador to the U.N., John Bolton declared, “This was the best speech of the Trump presidency, in my view. I think it’s as clear and direct as it’s possible to be. I think it’s safe to say in the entire history of the United Nations, there has never been a more straightforward criticism of the behavior, the unacceptable behavior of other member states. There are a lot of people in the U.N. who have never heard anything like that from an American president.”
President Trump has done a great service for the civilized world through his impassioned defense of national sovereignty, national security and prosperity.
UPDATE:  At 5:50 PM today, Yonhap News Service, the mouthpiece of the North Korean government, tweeted:

President Trump Stumps The UN

Say what you will, President Trump shock rocked the world in his speech to the United Nations General Assembly. And he did it without a teleprompter.
Contrary to his mealy-mouthed predecessors, the President called a spade an entrenchment tool and let the world know that he will defend America's interests and that the free ride is over. The UN must clean up its act. Trump also singled out three nations whose activities are of special concern to America.
First, North Korea:
"The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea. Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime."
This is not new. For most of his term in office, President Trump has been warning North Korea's Insane Boy Clown For Life that he is walking on a razor's edge. What is new is that the UN's General Assembly was treated to the harsh clanging of an American President who has brass ones.
Second on Trump's "List of Nations I Want To Bitch Slap" was Iran:
"The Iranian government masks a corrupt dictatorship behind the false guise of a democracy. It has turned a wealthy country with a rich history and culture into an economically depleted rogue state whose chief exports are violence, bloodshed, and chaos." 
America owes Iran a severe ass kicking. The terrorists who run the remains of the Persian Empire have been killing Americans for decades without a single cruise missile to remind them that Uncle Sam's beard is not a trapeze. I still remember 241 Marines murdered in their barracks and the US embassy in Beirut destroyed under Reagan's watch.
There's been a shit ton of interest accruing just for these two incidents much less the chaos and death the Iranian government have abetted since then. It's way past time for the US to collect on this debt.
Third, our once friendly neighbor to the south, Venezuela:
"The problem in Venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented, but that socialism has been faithfully implemented. From the Soviet Union to Cuba to Venezuela, wherever true socialism or communism has been adopted, it has delivered anguish and devastation and failure."
Boom chica wow wow. That left a mark on Lenin's ass in Hell. The people of Venezuela are suffering terribly and there is only one reason why their distress is so great…their government. Thank you, Lord Jesus for delivering us from Hillary Chavez.  
More here.
Of course the libs are foaming at the mouth and chasing their tails after listening to the President's UN speech, as expected. What I find really disturbing is Chief of Staff John Kelly's reaction while his boss was delivering the message.
Kelly needs to go. If this idiot cannot keep a poker face while his President is addressing the world he should get a paper route to supplement his Army pension. 
Get rid of Kelly Mr. President.

Rare Black Squirrel Sighted

Since Curmudeon's palatial estate seems to be squirrel central, I pass along this bit of Left Coast squirrel news:

I spotted a black squirrel on the fence in my back yard today. I was doing a little pool maintenance when he skittered over the fence, saw me and froze. We just stared at each other for a while, then he ran away. According to wiki, you find them mostly in the Northeast, Midwest, parts of Canada and the UK.

Looked kinda like this.
The black fur color can occur naturally as a mutation in populations of gray squirrels, but it is rare.
Since there don't appear to be any black squirrel populations within, say 2-3,000 miles of here, I'm going with "mutation". 

Great. I've got a mutant squirrel in my back yard. Possibly a ninja...

The White House Moved To LA Last Night

You may as well bring a big pan of lasagna or a bundt cake to the Emmy Awards as a house warming gift; President Trump has taken up permanent residence inside their heads.
Los Angeles (AFP) - Television's glittering Emmys placed politics front and center on Sunday, lavishing "The Handmaid's Tale" with awards for its bleak portrait of an authoritarian America.

The glitzy ceremony in downtown Los Angeles -- the first under the administration of President Donald Trump -- was widely expected to have a strongly political flavor, and host Stephen Colbert set the tone in his opening monologue.
Stephen took a break from spraying graffiti on the sides of subway cars in order to host the awards.
"However you feel about the president, and you do feel about the president, you can't deny that every show was influenced by Donald Trump in some way," he said.
First Lady Melania will have her staff sweep out the dust liberals, spray for Screen Actors Guild cockroaches and toss out the porn before settling in for a major remodeling effort.

The news article goes on to list the programs that received Emmy awards but *yawn* who cares...

Unabomber Chic and the Low Rent Domestic Terrorist

Unabomber then and now

Remember the Unabomber? That weird, reclusive domestic terrorist guy holed up in his cabin with nothing but a copy of Al Gore's "Earth in the Balance" and a box of crazy flakes, as he plotted which of his fellow citizens he had to kill in order to save Mother Gaia.  While he was out saving the environment through better bombing, he wore a mask. Even though he was nuttier than squirrel poop about the environment, he didn't want to get caught!

I noticed a certain fashion sense that Ted Kaczynski shared with many of the people we find in our streets today, on the avant-garde of protests, as opposed to American protesters in years past. When I started writing this, I was just going to highlight the differences between the Civil Rights marches of the sixties, with marchers in coats and ties, holding America flags (right side up), not wearing masks to hide who they were, and contrast them with the low rent domestic terrorists prowling the streets today.

When Milo Yiannopoulos was denied the opportunity to speak at UC Berkeley, it might have been dismissed as a unique occurrence,  the assaults, the vandalism, setting fires and rioting in the streets, but since then

Take Your Pick

What'll be? Hemorrhoids or chlamydia?

Hillary just won't go away. The annoying itching irritation that arises whenever she voices another misinformed, misguided, miscreant opinion is enough to make a soul grab a scalpel and slice off the offending body part.

Thank the Lord for the mute button on remote control devices else my ears would have been gone years ago.
Certain dread diseases are not curable. They might go away for a while but eventually they come back with ugly pus-filled sores that itch, fester and ooze. They're painful and embarrassing.
Hillary Clinton is like that.
Just when we thought she'd gone away, she's flaring up worse than ever. She has a new book out, for which she's started tours. You have to pay money to come to the book tour to hear her pitch this book that she wants you to pay money to buy to read about what a generous person she is.
There are no creams, salves or ointments that can cure the the case of Hillaritis that afflicts the nation's tender political bits. America will scratch itself raw before she finally utters her final self-aggrandizing "Ohhhhh, what a world, what a world!" and disappears in a foul cloud of disappointed ambition. And just like Oz's Wicked Witch, even her army of flying monkeys has had their fill of her. Time to move on and select another socialist loser.
We shouldn't be surprised. This is the woman who was charging public universities and charities a quarter million for one-hour speeches.
This book — her latest vehicle for monetizing the American political system — is about how she was humiliated by an amateur in the last election. It's called "What Happened."
Everyone else already knows what happened. The Dems nominated a selfish and charmless candidate who ran an abysmal campaign.

Colorado State Rams Vs Alabama Crimson Tide: The Silence Of The Lambs

When the Colorado State Rams enter Bryant-Denny Stadium on Saturday it will be the second-ever meeting between the two teams.  The last time they met on the gridiron was in 2013.  Florida’s Head Coach Jim McElwain was the Rams’ offensive coordinator at the time.  The Tide won that contest easily.
CSU enters Saturday’s game with a 2-1 record, having defeated last week’s opponent, Abilene Christian, by a score of 38-10.  ESPN’s Matchup Predictor gives Alabama a 97.9% chance of winning the game.
The Rams head coach, Mike Bobo told a local Alabama radio station after breaking down film of The Tide, “It’s pretty scary. It really is scary when you turn on the tape and you’re trying to figure out how you’re going to move the ball offensively, how you’re going to stop them defensively. They’ve got this receiver (Calvin Ridley) that makes big play after big play and then they’ve got these huge running backs. You’re afraid if they give it to them 40 times a game, you might not have a team left. And then they’ve got this quarterback (Jalen Hurts), when he drops back to pass, do you cover him? Do you try to double Ridley? And then Hurts runs.”
Defensively, the Rams are allowing 378.7 yards per game and that’s just about four yards less than Alabama is averaging on offense. Their pass defense is giving up 259 yards per game.  The crowd at Sonny Lubick Field left early during the CSU-Abilene Christian game because it was apparent the Rams were playing down to the level of its opponent.  That’s hardly what I would call “tear ‘em asunder” football.
With the Ram secondary severely outmatched and a defensive line that is not likely to win the shoving match with the offensive line of the Tide, QB Jalen Hurts should have plenty of time to read the field, run through his progressions, and spread the ball around making it inevitable they run up the score for a complete drubbing of the Mountain West Conference team.
The Dawgs of Jawja beat the Irish in South Bend last week.  I’ve always loathed Notre Dame.  You can’t be a lifelong Bama fan and not feel that way.  I remember the arrogance of the Ara Parseghian era and it’s been resurrected by current Head Coach Brian Kelly.  The leprechauns are not expected to compete nationally this year.
Auburn has dreams of dethroning Alabama, winning the SEC Championship and reaching the College Football Playoff, but Auburn failed in their 14-6 loss in Death Valley to Clemson a week ago.
LSU and Mississippi State play in Starkville on Saturday.  Blogger friend and SEC sister Diogenes’ Middle Finger has her prediction for that smashmouth game.
Baker Mayfield and the Boomer Sooners have officially joined Alabama as Playoff favorites by walloping the Bucknuts at home 31-16.  I love a cup of bitter OSU tears.

Chelsea Manning Got De-Fellowed Again

Bradley Chelsea Manning served seven years in the supermax prison at Fort Leavenworth for turning over classified information to Julian Assange’s WikiLeaks.  His/her act of treason constitutes the largest breach of intel in American history. The remainder of his/her 35-year sentence was commuted by The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer in January of 2017.
On Wednesday, the military whistleblower had been among a group invited to speak at the Institute of Politics at Harvard’s Kennedy School including former White House press secretary Sean Spicer, former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and Robby Mook, Granny Clinton's 2016 campaign manager.
Amid a torrent of blistering criticism for its decision, the school withdrew its designation of “fellow” for the sexually confused turncoat calling it a “mistake”.
The Dean of the school, Douglas Elemendorf, said in a statement the next day, “We invited Chelsea Manning to spend a day at the Kennedy School.  We did not intend to honor her in any way or to endorse any of her words or deeds.”
Mind you, the only reason for the reversal was the high-profile resignation of former CIA Acting Director Mike Morell and the last-minute cancellation of current CIA Director Mike Pompeo to speak at the school.
Addressing Morell’s decision to resign from his non-resident senior fellowship Pompeo, a Harvard graduate himself said, “You have traded a respected individual who served his country with dignity for one who served it with disgrace and who violated the warrior ethos she promised to uphold when she voluntarily chose to join the United States Army.”

At This Point, What Difference Does It Make?

In her new book “What Happened”, Hillary compared herself to, of all people, Cersei Lannister from Game of Thrones.
The Ice Cube In Heels notes she was treated by the crowds at her opponent’s rallies the same way the residents of the fictional Westeros did towards disgraced ruler Cersei Lannister during her ignoble walk of shame.
If the twice-failed presidential candidate sought to elicit sympathy for being hideously shamed she picked one hell of an absurd comparison.  The Mad Queen and the Hag Queen are sickeningly analogous in their cruelty.
Cersei’s brother Tyrion warned, “A day will come when you think you are safe and happy and your joy will turn to ashes in your mouth.”
Clinton lost a race few thought possible and is now the Queen of Ashes.  Taking fantasy into real life, Jon Snow’s words to Cersei in the Dragonpit in Season 7 are noteworthy: “When enough people make false promises words stop meaning anything and then there are no more answers only better and better lies.”  Benghazi.

David Remnick, writing for The New Yorker:
“The wounds that the new book opens are not just Clinton’s. A few nights before meeting with her, I was at dinner with a political professional who worked on her 2008 campaign. I mentioned that I was going to interview Clinton, and sought his advice about what I should ask. He put down his fork and scowled. ‘Ask her why she blew the biggest slam dunk in the history of fucking American politics!’ he said. A few diners at adjacent tables looked up. ‘Oh, and ask her if she is going to donate the millions of dollars she’s gonna make on this book to charity. Ask her: Why should you profit from this disaster?’ There was more of this.”
“On the day I was to see Clinton, I read an article in Politico headlined “Democrats Dread Hillary’s Book Tour.” Unnamed ‘alums’ from her Brooklyn campaign headquarters told the reporters that the promotion of ‘What Happened was ‘the final torture.’  Others joked about how many stops she’d make in Wisconsin in her campaign to sell books. A top Democratic donor said that Clinton ‘should just zip it, but she’s not going to.’ Senator Claire McCaskill, a Democrat from Missouri, was asked about the book; she replied, ‘Beg your pardon?’ and walked away. Her colleague from Oregon, Ron Wyden, said, ‘I’ve always been a looking-forward kind of guy. I think I’ll leave it at that.’”
