With Super Bowl 49 fast approaching, and the game taking on added interest because of "Deflategate", will TV viewership break the record set last year when Seattle destroyed Denver? Over 111 million people watch the game, while over 150 million watched at least part of it. Poll question, how many people watch the game this year, and if you want, give me a score.

Radio news you can use..or not!!

by demswin06

I am a fan of behind-the-scenes goings on in the radio world and while looking through my emails, came across an email from All-Access Media group.which chronicles the world of radio. A couple of interesting items in NY radio I am going to respond to here (and no, I don't live in the New York area, but am close enough to it,to get NYC radio and NYC based sports networks.)

Congress, my ass!!!

by demswin06

It's no secret the internets and the MSM are abuzz with our planned attack on Syria for its use of chemical weapons against its citizens, and well should be. However, I am getting to the point that either Mr. Obama does this soon or don't do it at all.

A link from....ugh...Drudge says that Wealth TV, an obscure satellite channel (I think that only Dish carries it) announced that it's teaming up with the Washington Times to launch it's own cable news network this summer, to be known as One America News.

CT GOVERNOR UPDATE

by demswin06

Tom Foley, the apparently vanquished candidate for Governor of Connecticut had a press conference this morning and all but announced that he will not concede anything, citing "voting irregularities" (GOP speak for Democrats voted), in the numbers released by Bill Finch, the mayor of Bridgeport, reported this morning and the numbers apparently given to Secretary of State Susan Bysiewicz.

However, Foley is less confident than he was yesterday that when it is all said and done, he will be the Governor. Even Foley believes that Bridgeport did him in, but states that he thinks that the numbers he has and the "official unofficial numbers" from Bridgeport, don't jive. Instead of outright declaring himself the winner, he now says that the difference in the numbers would trigger the automatic recount, which is 2,000 or less votes.

Calling BS!!! UPDATED

by demswin06

The election of 2010 is over, and the "good guys" sort of lost. Overall a mixed bag. Lost the House, kept the Senate and lost the governor's races.

Here in Connecticut, the only race outstanding is the Foley-Malloy race for Governor which was sent into turmoil when not enough ballots were sent to Bridgeport, the state's largest city, and which Stamford,the home of Malloy, a Bridgeport neighbor is located. Bridgeport,parts of Hartford and New Haven are all still out, which should be good news for Malloy,since all three cities are all heavily Democratic,in a heavily Democratic state. Whomever wins the Governorship, will still have a Democratic Legislature to work with. Connecticut survived the infestation of the "teabagger nut jobs" by retaining all five of its Democratic Congressional delegation, added Senator-elect Blumenthal and keeps the Legislature.

By now, the blogosphere and the TV has been all atwitter (no pun intended) on the Bob Woodward inspired meme that Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton will be trading jobs for 2012. Some pros and cons about that.

Today, I became an unDemocrat

by demswin06

Today, after running a couple of errands, I walked into my local Town Hall and undid something that I had originally done the day I turned 18, more than 36 years ago. I un-registered as a Democrat and registered as an unaffiliated voter. Except for a brief flirtation with Lowell Weicker's ACP party, I've been a Democrat in two different states, for almost four decades, which includes the People's Republic of New Hampshire. Not any more!!!

Why would I turn my back on the party that I've supported and voted for virtually my entire adult life? I cannot in good conscience continue to be enrolled in a party that won't even put a fight, doesn't give a tinker's damn about me or anyone else.
