Discuss amongst yourselves

You may wish to note that I twice brought up the possibility of a little unlooked-for regime change before Friday’s ominous media statement.

The transience of talent

From ProFootballTalk:

A league source tells us that Randy Moss has passed his physical and the trade of Randy Moss to the Patriots is done.

Raiders get New England’s fourth-round pick.

Considering that the Vikes had two fourth-rounders, I would have been delighted to get Randy back in the Metrodome. Maybe he is finished, but I think it’s more likely that the debacle that is the Raidess put him in quit mode.

Regardless, who would have ever thought that Randy Moss would be traded for nothing but a 4th round draft pick. It looks like New England is loading for bear this year, if anyone can keep him in line and get him back on track, it’s going to be the Hooded One.

He did a pretty good job with a malcontent named Dillon a few years ago, after all.

Immigration collaboration

Upon further reflection, it seems not all Republicans are determined to continue collaborating with the invasion of the US:

Republican presidential hopeful Sen. Sam Brownback said yesterday he no longer supports the immigration overhaul bill that he helped pass in the Senate. “I would not vote for the same bill,” Mr. Brownback told reporters yesterday morning, saying that after the bill passed the Senate he had a chance to study its effects and decided it led to too much immigration.

It’s a major reversal for a man who is listed as one of seven original sponsors of the bill, along with Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, Massachusetts Democrat, and Sen. John McCain, Arizona Republican, who spearheaded the bill.

I don’t believe Brownback for a second, of course. What’s changed his mind is the realization that the vast majority of Republicans absolutely hate the president’s immigration collaboration bill, wish to see immigration severely reduced and all illegals sent back to their homelands. Even so, his turnabout is a positive sign.

As I’ve said for quite some time now, all Hillary has to do in order to win is to embrace immigration restrictions. She’ll be lying, of course, but when has that ever troubled her?

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday to you.
Happy Birthday to you.
While we’d love to see you,
The marshals would too.

Have a great day today, Dad. All the best, as always.
