America, eff yeah!

I know the country is still enmeshed in what the blogosphere’s self-proclaimed cool kids call the most important issue of the week, maybe ever. Whether a beauty contest winning person of Muslim background can pose in a bikini and/or work the pole and yet still be accused of being a Islamo-fascist terrorist promised 71 men who don’t know what they’re doing besides Donald Trump?

But today is a big primary day — perhaps you’ve heard — in Pennsylvania, Kentucky, and Arkansas amongst others. It’s a big day for more progressive (a relative term indeed) Democratic challengers in two of those.

Meanwhile, in Kentucky, Rand Paul, likely to win the GOP primary was being interviewed but this question could not be answered:

Q: Do you think Americans, based on the 2nd Amendment, do you think they have a Constitutional right to violently overthrow the government?

PAUL STAFFER: Alright, we’ll have to stop recording.

He couldn’t squeeze out a “no” on that one?

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
