Furman Grad, Sociology major but it was little tougher than Auburn football players had Had three dates with beautiful women the summer of 1978. Did not marry any of em. Never married anybody cause what was available was undesirable and what was desirable was unaffordable. Unlucky in love as they say and even still it is sometimes heartbreaking.

Morning Joe, Finebaum and Jim from Tuscaloosa

       I was on hold for 27 minutes yesterday waiting to get on the Finebaum show then bailed out. Was going for a twofer Thursday as I had gone national earlier in the morning with a callin to NPR One A show that replaced Diane Rehm.

    Was gonna talk to Finebaum about the malaprop--had it been a word instead of a photo-- of the "master game day psychologist Nick Saban"--use of the Ali/Sonny Liston photo. See blog below.

     So I took a walk and came back to Finebaum later. Jim from Tuscaloosa was on as ignorant as ever as in the Randy Newman song don't know his ass from a hole in the ground. He and New Yorker David Remick's friend--that would be Finebaum--were talking about Bama grad Joe Scarborough and Jim was talking about how he is smarter than Morning Joe and Mika.

     Well here is what they don't know. Joe Scarborough like Senator Richard Shelby, the Bama "Legend" ain't all that when you compare the lot (Jeff Sessions, Mike Hubbard, Bama SBC Prez Rick Lance) to the Great Bama Republican Judge Frank Johnson.

     Joe of FBC Pensacola where a good Baptist from Ohatchie Barry Howard is pastor, got his comepuppance, the real story on the GOP since Reagan in Garry Wills piece in the Ny Rev of Books a couple years ago.

     And the Bleaching policy of the Bama GOP, that is what Greg Sankey, Finebaum Morning Joe and Don't know his ass from a hole in the ground Jim from Tuscaloosa need to be talking about.

    Here are three links including my comment on 1a show of NPR in the last five minutes yesterday.

     Finebaum, Ryan McGhee has my contact info. Give me a call. I'm good for an hour.

Have Senator Shelby staff help you find this article online. The second half the half the teaser deleted is the guts of the matter, about Lee Atwater's race strategies that lead to Bama Sessions and Hubbard Bleacing in the New Republic piece above.

     Time for a sit down with David Remnick,  Coach Saban, Greg Sankey. Jim from Tuscaloosa can listen on the radio.
