That time of year again where the NBC stations get not as much ratings as they usually would if this were the summertime.
While they endorsed him in his other races, several members of the UAW prefer HRC over Sen. Bayh for President. I'm still confused about that. Listen, we'll get a female president eventually but HRC is just too polarizing!
Second City got a standing ovation in Dayton.

It's almost that time of year when pitchers and catchers report to spring training. Yes, springtime is just around the corner.
This spring's 21 nonroster invitees consist largely of minor-league free agents with several organizational prospects and one career American League reliever, Jeff Nelson. Veteran infielders Brian Daubach and Dave Berg will attend, as will veteran pitchers John Reidling, Alan Benes, Dennis Tankersley and Ryan Falkenborg.Evan Bayh has joined with other Senators for the Pork-Barrel Reduction Act. The Senator who is likely to vote against this is Senator Robert C. Byrd.
"In all candor, this is not going to solve our budget problem by itself," Bayh said. "But I’d like to think that even in Washington, $17 billion a year is still real money. If we go back to the earmark levels of 1995, that’s how much we would save."Ouch. Paul McCartney snubs Sting and Bruce "The Boss" Springsteen.
After James Taylor and Bonnie Raitt announced that U2's "How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb" had beaten McCartney's "Chaos and Creation in the Back Yard," the ex-Beatle got up and left with his very arrogant bodyguard. They weren't exactly subtle about it, either.I happened to enjoy McCartney singing "Helter Skelter." For me, it's a heavier rock song that I can rock out to in order to relieve stress.
If he'd stayed, like everyone else, McCartney would have seen Bruce Springsteen and Sam Moore's knockout tribute to the late Wilson Pickett on "In the Midnight Hour."[...]
As usual, McCartney continues to be the worst judge of his own material. When I told him I thought that the experimental and genius song "At the Mercy" was one of the best tracks on the album, he replied, "That's Nigel's favorite one too," referring to producer Nigel Godrich.
"I like 'Jenny Wren,'" McCartney said of one of the two least interesting tracks on the CD (the other being something about the time).
Oh well. Backstage there were several grimaces when Paul insisted on performing "Helter Skelter."
One rock star said, "Why? What an awful choice."
Just a reminder that the heated special election is next week.
Rick Pitino thinks that a Louisville arena is very unlikely to happen.
He also had some advice for John Schnatter and David Jones who plan to fund a private arena study. "I have a better suggestion," Pitino said. "Take the money and give it to the poor. It'll be money better spent. Leave this thing alone. Its not gonna happen. Give it to the poor. I can tell you from being in Lexington, Louisville is not part of the state. It's an island. I don't think our politics do what's best for the state and the people. The arena's never gonna happen. I don't get excited about it. It's not gonna happen."
During a UofL Board of Trustees meeting Thursday the board worked on a resolution that says it would back the site picked by the arena task force. President James Ramsey says he's worried that if no one can decide which site to go with the proposal for an arena won't pass in Frankfort.
