Thoughts on the Super Bowl, A Good Suggestion and a Tea Party
February 12, 2010 by Chip Wood
*Three Super Bowl victories. Congratulations to all the fans of the New Orleans Saints ,who finally saw their team win the Super Bowl after a 42-year drought. Congratulations, too, to everyone who believes, even a tiny bit, in “the Super Bowl predictor.” This one says that if one of the original NFL teams wins the Big Game, the stock market will go up for the year. (Don’t scoff; it’s been right 79 percent of the time. How does that compare to your method?) And finally, congratulations to CBS for not buckling to pressure from NOW and other loony lefties to suppress that delightful ad featuring Tim Tebow and his mom. I loved it.
*Keep those cards and letters coming, folks. Well, actually I mean keep those emails coming. Don’t know if you read any of the correspondence at the end of my Straight Talk columns, but you should. Some of the observations and suggestions from you Dear Readers are a pure delight. I especially want to thank David J., who disagreed with a previous comment about Obama being a one-term president. His argument? “We should all mail the White House website and tell Obama to resign. We don’t need him as a one-term president. We need him as a 13-month president!” Glad you’re on our side, David.
*The Tea Party is our most popular. Here’s a stunner from a recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll. While 35 percent of Americans have a positive view of the Democrats and 28 percent say the same of the Republicans, 41 percent of us have a positive view of the tea party movement. Yup, those grassroots rebels are now more popular than either the Demopubs or the Republicrats. Good for them.
