CNN GOP Debate: A Food Fight And A Bimbo Screamer

In last night's Republican debate, CNN moderators appeared to be attempting to herd cats while the the candidates resorted to name calling and rhetoric. The whole affair reminded me of a Barnum and Bailey three ring circus.

Of course, that's what CNN all out food fight. They have poor ratings and they needed to pump it up. The Spanish language television Telemundo also aired the debate, but that's redundant as we already mention poor ratings.

While Rubio performed well, his tendency to repeat himself stood out this morning as he appeared on all the networks using his new found term "Con man" (referring to Trump).

One of the most annoying things of the night came from what the media is now referring to as, "the screamer". Some obviously planted Rubio bimbo let out a blood curdling scream every time Rubio said something. I'm surprised she didn't throw her panties on the stage.

As for the conversations over political donations, there are few business people who have not donated to both parties and/or opposing candidates, Why? Because you don't know who will win and donations provide inroads that could help their businesses.

While all candidates have their rehearsed rhetoric, most business people want to know how the candidate's election will affect his or her business.

Probably the most important Friday headline is that New Jersey Governor Chris Christi announced his endorsement for Donald Trump. Bottom line? Ted Cruz needs to win big in Texas and Marco Rubio needs to win Florida.....

The News As I See It: Hasbro announced they are making a new version of Monopoly to appeal to a younger generation. That means it won't come with any cash, so you'll have to borrow some from your parents' Monopoly set.

Whole Foods is looking into the idea of putting tattoo parlors in their grocery stores. Even so, the people walking out of Whole Foods with the biggest sense of regret will still be whoever just paid $8 for an apple.

O.J. Simpson, when asked about Cuba Gooding Jr.’s portrayal of him, said he’s "not tall enough and his head is too small." Simpson then said, "Also, he didn't kill my wife."

Wealthy GOP donors are now lining up behind Marco Rubio. Not because the donors think he can stop Trump, but because they think Rubio is the valet.

This Date In History: 1815; Napoleon Bonaparte escaped from exile on the island of Elba. 1870; A 312-ft long pneumatic subway was opened in New York City; funding for a larger version never materialized. 1901; Leaders of the Boxer Uprising in China, Chi-hsui and Hsu Cheng-yu, were beheaded.

1919; Grand Canyon National Park was established. 1935; RADAR (Radio Detection and Ranging) was first demonstrated by Robert Watson-Watt. 1993; A bomb exploded at the World Trade Center in New York. The blast killed six people and injured more than 1,000.

Picture Of The Day: The remaining Republican candidates.

Printable Things I Never Told You: 1) Forget world peace. Visualize using your turn signal. 2) Despite their other contributions to our society, lawyers can still be a great source of protein. 3) About half the stuff in my shopping cart says, "For fast relief." 4) The city of Chicago got started when a bunch of people in New York said, "You know, I'm enjoying the crime, poverty and high taxes, but it just isn't cold enough. Let's go west." 5) I hope I'm the last guy on earth - I want to see if all those women were lying to me.....and that's five !

Today's Horoscope: Pisces - February 26th: Wake up in a trash container again this morning? Don't let your drinking get you down. Go out and have a beer. You have many more good years ahead of you. Today will be much better and even if you do wake up in the trash bin again, the food will be fresher.

Birthdays: Victor Hugo, writer 1802, Levi Strauss, entrepreneur, inventor 1829, Buffalo Bill Cody, American plainsman 1846, John Harvey Kellogg, surgeon, advocate of dietary reform 1852,  Johnny Cash, singer 1932, Jenny Thompson, swimmer 1973.

The AREA 51 Retirement Home Bar And Grill: In the Olympic trials heat for the 200 meter Olympic women's breaststroke, eight women entered the race. After approximately 2 minutes and 10 seconds, the swimmer from Australia won the race. 5 seconds later, the swimmer from France was declared the second place finisher.

Nearly 40 minutes later, Rose, the blonde American swimmer finally completed the race. When the reporters asked why it took her so long to complete the breaststroke race, she replied, "I don't want to sound like I'm a sore loser, but I think those two other girls were using their arms."

Two elderly women were eating breakfast in a restaurant one morning. Ethel noticed something funny about Mabel's ear and she said, ''Mabel, do you know you've got a suppository in your left ear?"

Mabel answered, "I have a suppository in my ear?" Mabel pulled it out and stared at it. Then she said, "Now I know where to find my hearing aid."

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: In a murder trial, the defense attorney was cross-examining the coroner. The attorney asked, "Before you signed the death certificate, had you taken the pulse? The coroner replied, "No, I did not."

The attorney asked, "Did you listen to the heart?" The coroner answered, "No, I did not." The attorney: said, "Did you check for breathing?" The coroner said, "No."

The attorney said, "So, when you signed the death certificate, you weren't sure the man was dead, were you?"

The coroner replied, "Well, let me put it this way. The man's brain was sitting in a jar on my desk. But I guess its possible he could be out there practicing law somewhere."

A little old lady was sitting on a park bench in an adult community. A man walked over and sits down on the other end of the bench. After a few moments, the woman asks, "Are you a stranger here?" He replies, "I lived here years ago."

The old lady continued, "So, where were you all these years?" The man says, "In prison." The old lady asked, "Why did they put you in prison?" He looked at her, and very quietly said, "I killed my wife." The old woman said, "Oh! So you're single...?!"

That's it for today, my little bluebirds. Remember, men are less sentimental than women. No man has ever seen the movie "The Way We Were" twice, voluntarily. I'm heading over to AREA 51 for happy hour.

I am fortunate, we broke the habit of watching TV years ago. So I missed the debate. Thanks for bringing me up to date.
Great lines in the news today. Especially the Rubio line!
Try to be good.
