The Monday Thought
We’re four days away from Christmas and it’s time to start thinking about Christmas presents! Like last year, let’s talk about some of the things that certain public figures should find under the tree this year?
At least two of of the things I correctly suggested last year actually happened:
For Orioles manager Brandon Hyde; a contract extension. He’s done a good job keeping a competitive time on the field and doesn’t deserve to be jettisoned just as the team might turn the corner
For Big E; a major push and the run with the WWE title that he so greatly deserves.
Now, on to the list!
For former President Donald Trump: a Lego set of the Golden Gate Bridge, so he can finally build a bridge and get over it.
For the Ravens defense, a premium subscription to WebMD. Maybe that will help stop the seemingly endless stream of injuries that has devastated the team this year.
For Lamar Jackson, an offensive line. Almost anybody is an improvement over what’s going on there right now.
For Delegate Dan Cox: A dictionary, so maybe you and your campaign team can learn to spell. Wouldn’t hurt to take a refresher in Constitutional law, either.
For the Frederick County Conservative Club: A copy of Barry Goldwater’s seminal work The Conscience of a Conservative which will hopefully instill in them the idea that being lapdogs for wanna be left-wing despots is not conservatism.
No, you cannot borrow my first-edition copy.
For Senator Bill Ferguson and Speaker Adrienne Jones: A framed Rorschach test so they are reminded of the gerrymandered Congressional Districts they railroaded down out throats.
For Steuart Pittman, boxes he can use to move out of his 4th floor office in the Arundel Center.
For Paul Gosar and Matt Gaetz: The number for a good defense attorney.
For socialists running for office in Maryland: lots of tissues, for them to wipe their eyes on primary election night as they cry into their soy faux vegan lattes again.
For Maryland Men’s Basketball: A good coach that actually wants to be here.
For Mike Lindell; a few more Razzies to go with his Worst Picture and Worst Actor Razzies from earlier this year.
For the folks in OnePasadena, a copy of this badass Thomas Sowell poster to remind them that they are not the good guys in their story.
For Adley Rutschman and Grayson Rodriguez; a Baltimore real estate guide, hopefully to help them find an area home that will a mantel on which to hold the American League Rookie of the Year trophy;
For fast pitch wiffle ball across the country; a spot on ESPN’s The Ocho Day;
For Cesaro; a major push and the run with the WWE title that he so greatly deserves;
For Johnny Gargano: the opportunity to wrestle the matches he wants to at the highest level, regardless of the company he signs with;
For the January 6th riot participants: A framed copy of this meme
For your, our readers: I wish you nothing but health and peace as we celebrate the birth of our Lord this Christmas season.
