The LuLac Edition #3014, August 26th, 2015


Man, I was told there was a pool at the LuLac household. So I brought my suit. But the pool was something in a frame Yonk won at WVIA TV during the 1977 World Series. Seems like he hit 5 out of 6 games. That was "the pool". I'm starting to not dig this anymore, the guy is starting to be a slave driver or to be politically correct, an "annexed African native taken by force" driver.

Okay I think we all know Joe Biden is running for President. We all know he has wanted to. As long ago as December 2014 in a conversation Yonk had with former Mayor Jim McNulty, McNulty was convinced Biden would run. We all did but when the Clinton inevitability started to set in we did not see a path.
But now with the e mail controversy still surrounding Mrs. Clinton, the meeting Biden had with the President and Mr. Obama's Press Secretary singing the praises of The Veep, it is now a question of when and how Biden will do it.
Yonk's advice. Accept an invitation to the first Democratic debate. File the day before the first Democratic debate. Introduce your running mate Elizabeth Warren either at the start or the end of the debate.
Then step back and watch the fireworks.

Senator Pat Toomey. (LuLac archives).
Incumbent Senator Pat Toomey has a commanding lead against Admiral Joe Sestak and former candidate and Wolf Chief of Staff Katie McGinty. The GOP was only too pleased to share that news with us in an e mail about the Quinnipiac Poll. Here are the results:
Toomey leads Democratic challenger Joe Sestak 48 - 33 percent.
The Senator also leads Katie McGinty, former chief of staff to Gov. Wolf, 48 - 32 percent, with men for Toomey 56 - 26 percent. Plus Toomey gets a 49 - 26 percent job approval rating and a 46 - 23 percent favorability rating.”
As for Governor Wolf he weighs in with an approval rating of about 45%.

If you are a viewer of “Morning Joe” on MSNBC TV you know that The Huffington Post has been a had regular contributors from the website. But that has changed the past few days.
Th controversy came to boil when Joe Scarborough and others on the panel were contemptuous of a Huff Post staffer who appeared. It seems the Huff Post has been following the Trump campaign under their website entertainment tab and not politics. Sam Stein in particular has been very unkind to Trump. But this exchange essentially might have ended the relationship with the Post and Morning Joe.


And how about this on a recent news crawl on a local TV station. Here’s what the factoid read: The little league World  Series was founded in 1947. Since then a news radio station in Lycomig county has been broadcasting every game since the first pitch as thrown.
Okay nice to know but what station was it? Is it? What is the frequency on the dial? Play by play guy or robot?
C'mon guys!

Apparently the Lycoming county "news radio station" is NOT OWNED by the media conglomerate running the crawl. God forbid if they unknowingly cross-promote.

Unless they're staff is too lazy to research the factoid they throw on the crawl.

Hang in there Bernie.
I heard Yonk used his collection of Geena Davis "pin up posters" for bartering in college. I'm sure you get the point here.

I think Steve Corbett is trying a Beetlejuice manuever. If he says Biden's not running, or shouldn't run, enough times, the Veep won't.

Vice-president Biden is actually playing this smart. He let Hilary get out as the front runner, and all the negatives are now coming out. Clinton made this same mistake last time out and it cost her.

Vice-president Biden understand the moment he announce, he becomes the de facto incumbent, and the longer he waits (within reason), the better chance he has of winning the nomination. For him, he shortens the primary season, and with all the discontent surrounding Hilary, he can swoop in as the "savior."

The president has no choice but to endorse him, because for all intent purposes, this becomes a third Obama term. If he does not endorse or get behind his Vice-president, it will tarnish his legacy.

FYI: A distant cousin of mine (Ray Singley) played on the winning team (The Maynard Midgets) in that first LL World Series!

David! Don't you know you can't use the word "midget" anymore? It was banned years ago. No, not even MG Midget.
