CUBS WIN! CUBS WIN! CUBS WIN!

The Chicago Cubs have called Wrigley Field home since 1918. (To the intellectually challenged, that was the year we defeated the Huns and a year before the infamous Black Sox scandal.) Up until last night they had never won a championship of any kind in that venerated shrine. While they still must face either the Dodgers or the Mets in a best-of-seven series for the National League pennant, a feat they last accomplished in 1945, to advance to the World Series, which they last won in 1908, hope still springs eternal.

The Cubs are the team that can make October belong to baseball again

October used to be baseball’s domain, the time when the rest of the sporting world understood its second-fiddle status. Football owns the month now, the vise grip of the NFL and the allure of college unrelenting, unbreakable save for the one trump card baseball can play.

“If the Chicago Cubs are participating in the playoffs, football can wait,” Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. “With what we’ve been able to accomplish here … I’d like to believe we’re putting baseball at the forefront right now.”

WAS THERE ANYTHING ELSE GOING ON LAST NIGHT?
OH, YEAH.
AS IOWAHAWK PUT IT, BASEBALL ON TBS, SOFTBALL ON CNN.

I watched the game, as most people in these parts did, but I happened to switch over to CNN for about 30 seconds. My string of bad luck unbroken, it was when a doddering old Communist shouted: ‘We’re sick and tired of hearing about your e-mails!’
That moment settled for all time this was a Hillary coronation. The crowd, especially the press, went wild. Hillary agreed with him and shook his hand, satisfied he’d done his job.
The catch line was so effective that a man who works at our depot came in this morning and parroted the line and exclaimed he didn’t want to hear any more about it. I said nothing, content in the fact I have a battery-operated fish in my closet that has a higher I.Q. than he does.
I would not torture you with the entire debate and there weren’t many short clips available on youtube. At least not yet.
I did find one with the high (?) points of last night’s snooze fest. Much more to come in the comments.

Van Jones: Black Lives Matter won this debate.

CNN focus group: Bernie won, we need a little more socialism.

Luntz focus group: Bernie won!

Bare Naked Socialism

Dem debate - Socialism unhinged

The Debate Lesson: America Now Has an Openly Socialist Party by Jim Geraghty – October 13, 2015

Sure, this batch of candidates sounded like a bunch of loons. They contended socialism is mostly about standing up to the richest one percent and promoting entrepreneurs and small business; climate change is the biggest national security threat facing the nation; college educations should be free for everyone; all lives don’t matter, black lives do; Obama is simultaneously an enormously successful president in managing the economy and the middle class is collapsing and there’s a need for a “New New Deal” which is in fact an Old Old Idea, considering how FDR called for a Second New Deal in 1935. The audience in Nevada applauded higher taxes, believes that Hillary Clinton doesn’t need to answer any more questions, supports the complete shutdown of the NSA domestic surveillance program, and that Obamacare benefits should be extended to illegal immigrants. There are kindergarten classes with more realistic assessments of cost-benefit tradeoffs than the crowd watching this debate at the Wynn Las Vegas.

Global warming? We’ve become a nation of rules made by bureaucrats.
