Bessie Banks - Go Now

Performed the next year by the Moody Blues.

Incompetent former governor still trying to call the shots.

Would someone tell this creep that he lost the election. He would be better off spending his time preparing for his upcoming indictment.

Good Bye Derrick Rose

Could have been a great one. 
Derrick Rose is done. Not for six to eight weeks. Not for the regular season. Not for the playoffs. He’s done. Done, done.
As hard as this is to say, it’ll be even harder for the Bulls, the fans, Adidas and Rose to come to terms with it.
The Return 3? Scratch it off your viewing list. The Derrick Rose we once knew is no more.
Rose was already trying to overcome unprecedented odds in returning to MVP form after a second knee surgery. First, there

Chuy Garcia on Election Nite.

Look who is standing right behind Chuy Garcia.

Can Chuy pull it off?

The Challenger
The danger for Rahm in a runoff situation is that his vulnerabilities will be closely examined and eventually exploited. Expect a wild, hard hitting campaign, unlike anything we have had in years.  May the best man win.

Rahm fails to get 50 plus 1. Runoff looms!

CHICAGO (AP) -- Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel appears headed for an April runoff.
With about a quarter of the city's voting precincts still to be counted, Emanuel had less than 46 percent of the vote. He needs a majority Tuesday to avoid a runoff with Cook County Commissioner Jesus "Chuy" Garcia, who's running a strong second.
A runoff would expose possible vulnerability for an incumbent who has widespread support from business leaders, national name recognition and millions of dollars in his campaign fund. He participated in half a dozen debates and forums and received a last-minute boost from President Barack Obama.
Still, Emanuel faced low popularity ratings, particularly after a 2012 teachers' strike and closing dozens of schools the following years.

O'Shea Wins!

Hillary Clinton for President in 2016. Are you excited? Can she win?

The making of Hillary 5.0: Marketing wizards help re-imagine Clinton brand

 February 21   

Is Hillary Rodham Clinton a McDonald’s Big Mac or a Chipotle burrito bowl? A can of Bud or a bottle of Blue Moon? JCPenney or J. Crew?
As she readies her second presidential campaign, Clinton has recruited consumer marketing specialists onto her team of trusted political advisers. Their job is to help imagine Hillary 5.0 — the rebranding of a first lady turned senator turned failed presidential candidate turned secretary of state turned likely 2016 Democratic presidential nominee.
Clinton and her image-makers are sketching ways to refresh the well-established brand for tomorrow’s marketplace. In their mission to present voters with a winning picture of the likely candidate, no detail is too big or too small — from her economic opportunity agenda to the design of the “H” in her future campaign logo.

“It’s exactly the same as selling an iPhone or a soft drink or a cereal,” said Peter Sealey, a longtime corporate marketing strategist. “She needs to use everything a brand has: a dominant color, a logo, a symbol. . . . The symbol of a Mercedes is a three-pointed star. The symbol of Coca-Cola is the contour bottle. The symbol of McDonald’s is the golden arches. What is Clinton’s symbol?”
Clinton’s challenge is unique. Unlike potential Republican challengers of relatively middling fame who are introducing themselves to a national audience for the first time, Clinton is almost universally recognized. Love her or loathe her, potential voters know who she is after more than two decades in public life.
Or they think they know.
As Clinton and her advisers conceptualize her 2016 image, her own history shows the potential for peril.
In politics, authenticity can be a powerful trait, and it is one that sometimes has escaped Clinton. In her 2008 presidential campaign, despite some raw displays of emotion, she often came across as overly programmed.
In 2016, a challenge for Clinton will be adapting to the political moment with a fresh image while remaining true to her settled identity. “Look at Budweiser,” said a former campaign adviser to President Obama, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to talk candidly. “That’s what Hillary Clinton is. She’s not a microbrew. She’s one of the biggest, most powerful brands ever in the country, and recognizing that is important.”

VA Secretary Robert McDonald caught in another lie.

I think we should expect nothing but the truth from our leaders. 

This occurrence was not a little white lie. It is symptomatic of something else. It was not the first time he lied either. 

If he wants to be a bullshitter, fine with me but don't do it while you have your government hat on.
