    You remain my best source for news about my NY Rangers. I used to watch the games but they lose when I watch so I avert my eyes now. When they were in the Stanley Cup playoffs in 1994, I watched the last game at a bar with all of my friends. My friends were aware of my jinx, so they covered my eyes at crucial moments of the game. That was the key to victory and then we went form bar to bar drinking from foil covered replicas of the Stanley Cup and  telling the Islanders’ fans who  made fun of us for years to STFU. LOL

    So today is the day I get to make my voice heard one last time for NotMitt, as it is Primary Day in New York. You know I wanted to vote for Santorum, and since he’s still on the ticket even though he dropped out, and Newt is talking about dropping out, then I’m gonna vote for Rick anyway. And after that I suppose I will move on to telling myself that Mitt will be OK. Whatever else is wrong with Mitt, at least he doesn’t hate this country and the good people in it like Obama and his hulking, scowling wife do.

     IF I was able to vote, I’d vote for Santorum too, just to keep delegates away from Mittens … My fondest hope now is a brokered convention. Boy what a hot time it’s going to be here in Tampa Bay!

    Someone needs to remind Rudy that Itty-Bitty Smitty has a better understanding of economics than Bow-Wow Beef Barack…

     The “he” in the text clearly refers to Romney, not #OccupyResoluteDesk.

     So far, it’s running 75:1 in favor of Live-at-Five. Congrats! (Of course, I am the real winner because I get the traffic!)
