It’s good thing for Marco Rubio that kids can’t vote because if they could, they wouldn’t be voting for him. The Presidential candidate was tossing the football around in Iowa yesterday when he accidentally hit one of them in the face. Then when the little guy fell to the floor, instead of checking on him, he went to catch the ball that was boomeranging back towards him. Luckily for the US Senator, the little boy is OK.
Since this was posted on Bloomberg Politics, I will get a little political here. I guess he only worries about harming a child when they are in the womb, once they are out of it then it’s fair game.
Now back to Rubio and tossing the pig skin around with the children, here is him throwing and missing a lot of tosses with the other kids. Thankfully, for them they only dropped the ball and didn’t get hit in the face by one. I wonder if after all of those misses, if he actually scored a touchdown with any of the parents that came out to watch all those bad throws.
Melissa Gilbert had a big announcement today, she is running for Congresswoman in Michigan. The Little House on the Prairie star said, “Iâ€™m running for Congress to make life a little easier for all the families who feel they have fallen through the cracks in todayâ€™s economy. I believe building a new economy is a team effort, and we need to bring fresh voices to the table to get the job done.” I think this is how more politicians should feel. It is about families first, and lobbyists second.
When it comes to what is her political background, she was President of the Screen Actors Guild from 2001-2005. The last person who held that title and ran for office, eventually became President. That’s right, Ronald Reagan was President of SAG before he was Governor of California and then President of the United States. So who’s to say in the future, we might not be saying President Half Pint? Better than that other celebrity who is currently running for that office.
President Barack Obama was on Jimmy Kimmel Live yesterday and the ABC late night host had him read some Mean Tweets that were written about him.
Missing from those Tweets was Kanye West, but come the next edition he might be part of it. Why? When Kimmel asked him if it is true that the President called Mr Kim Kardashian on his home phone, Obama said, “I’ve met Kanye twice. The first time when I was a Senator. He was with his mom and he’d just gotten big. He was from Chicago. They wanted to meet. He was very soft spoken, very gracious.” Kimmel interrupted him and said, “That sounds like him.” To which the President responded with, “He was a young guy. He hadn’t quite come into his own.”
Then the Commander-in-Chief went back to answering the question, “About six months ago, he came to an event. Look, I love his music. He’s incredibly creative. I don’t think I have his home number.”
Kanye is not going to like that the President of the United States called him out for lying. How much so? We will just have to tune into JKL next Friday, when the rapper is a guest on the show from Austin, Tx.

Al Sharpton and Sarah Palin posed together on the red carpet at Saturday Night Live’s 40th Anniversary yesterday. The two of them looked so cozy together, I have to wonder if they have something to tell us? I am sure there is nothing between them, but I so wish there was.
You know, they say opposites attract, so maybe it will happen! If it does happen, can you imagine the reality show? Because you know they would totally do one together. You betcha it would be the greatest thing on television!
Chris Christie was getting ready to do a sit down interview with 94WIP, and the chair wasn’t ready for him. That’s because when the New Jersey Governor pulled it out to sit on it, it rolled back and his seat landed on the floor. I don’t know if it was the wheels screeching along the tile as it ran away from him, but I swear I thought I heard it laughing at him. Did you hear it too?
Joni Ernst is running for US Senate in Iowa and she might have the scariest campaign ad I’ve ever seen. The first thing she says in the commercial is “I grew up castrating hogs on an Iowa farm. So in Washington, Iâ€™ll know how to cut pork.” She ends it by saying, “Let’s make them squeal!” So is that her way of saying she wants to do to them what she did to the pigs when she was kid? Actually that is not a bad idea!!! If that is her intention, then I guess she has my vote.
As we all know Toronto Mayor Rob Ford suffers from a bad case of foot in mouth disease; and it looks like he found to always have a foot ready to put in his mouth before he says something, well, Rob Fordy.
Why he was walking around with a fake foot, we don’t know why. But it is just another great photo op for the man I wish was my mayor. I mean what other politician walks around (no pun intended) with a fake foot in his hand before meeting the press. And that is why we love him.
The deadline to sign up for the Affordable Care Act is coming up on March 31st and President Barack Obama really wants you to sign up for it. So much so, he sat down Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis on Funny or Die. If that doesn’t say desperate, I don’t know what does.
BTW I will not get into the politics of it all, but this actually had some very funny moments in it.
Jimmy Kimmel mentions Rob Ford on his ABC late night show at least once a night. Well, the infamous Mayor of Toronto has flown to LA to attend the Oscars and to be on Jimmy Kimmel Live Monday. So how far is Kimmel willing to go for his favorite politician? He braved the rain, dressed up as a limo driver and picked Ford up from LAX. How many other late night hosts would do that for their guests? None! And if I were going to be a guest on JKL in the future and I have to fly in to do it, I would insist that Kimmel does the same for me. I mean, they should all get such special treatment. Right?
BTW I hope they show all of this on JKL tomorrow at 11:35p. But then again they say what happens in the back of a limo, stays in the back of a limo. At least that is what my prom date told me…
The Canadian Hockey team was on fire yesterday at the Olympics and to honor that Toronto Mayor Rob Ford ran groin first into a fire hydrant! Thankfully for all of us, National Post‘s Darren Calabrese was their to capture the moment. Sadly though it was only with flash photography and not with a motion camera. So we will all have to use our imaginations to picture what it was like in motion. It’s just as good.
BTW is it just me or is Rob Ford just like a cartoon character? The things he does and how he looks reminds me of the animated shows I grew up with as a kid! He’s just so gosh darn cute.
