BRUCE A. BRENNAN BLOG FROM THE WORLD AND MY MIND
The news as I see it and the views as I want them.
October 5 is … National Storytelling Festival
This sounds like an event not a day. I do not really tell stories but I do write them. Order one of my books today in celebration of today’s holiday.
Did you hear the big news from Tuesday on the political front? Governor Chris Christie said he would not be running for the Republican Party nomination for President. He said the time was not right for him.
It will not take long before Bill Kristol and FOX News has him changing his mind.
As was reported by the New York Magazine online version, Bill Kristol is running out of strikes. Weekly Standard editor and Republican operative Bill Kristol has been trying hard to draft a new Republican candidate into the presidential race. In January, he started imploring Paul Ryan to jump into the race. Ryan begged off. Kristol's eye wandered to Indiana governor Mitch Daniels. Daniels, too, turned him down. Kristol even suggested that Marco Rubio could perhaps enter the race. Not even a whiff.
By August, Kristol was writing anguished, pleading poems to the candidates spurning him. The latest, desperate effort involved him working publicly and behind the scenes to draft Chris Christie into the race.
Now Christie's also out, and Kristol has compiled the worst draft record since Matt "Fire" Millen.
Leave this guy alone. His weight problem will be made into an issue and I am sure numerous reporters are looking for Mafia ties from New Jersey to tie Christie in with. He is not nationwide material. He has an approval rating of around 50% amongst New Jersey voters and they should know him. He is not really conservative. Many of his positions would disappoint Tea-partiers. He is better off in Jersey and so is America.
Neon Deion Sanders has filed for divorce. That, in and of itself, is a little unusual. Typically, the wife files for divorce. Deion gave some stupid reasoning for his decision. I do not know who his wife is but she apparently is on TV or is a model. He says he just wants a housewife, not a model or actress. If he wanted a model or actress, he said he would have gotten one ten years ago.
Deion has a girlfriend. She is described as a model/actress. So he apparently is trading his wife of 11 years is on a newer model. Who decides if you are a model/actress anyway? I never heard of either of the women involved in the Sanders divorce. I am constantly reading about women described as models, actresses or super models. Who votes on this stuff? Tiger Woods ex-wife was described as a super model. In reality, she was a babysitter of another golf pro’s kids. That should not qualify as a super model. Just having sex with someone famous does not make a woman a super model, an actress or a model, just an easy lay.
Just a couple of thoughts I had and you should too or at least think about.
