CMPD Cracks Open The Door - Tuesday night WBTV's Brigida Mack took an exclusive look at CMPD's "Top Secert" DNC 2012 Operations Center.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz - Is someone you should expect to see superimposed over the skyline of Charlotte again and again in the coming months. Shultz is the Chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee and a United States congresswoman from Florida.
It was Wasserman-Schultz who in January dismissed most of the Republican presidential field, instead focusing her attacks on Mitt Romney by calling his campaign a "charade" and citing his period as Massachusetts governor in which the state was only 47th of 50th in job creation.
Wasserman-Schultz is as famous for her canned talking points, including "The GOP represents a return to the failed policies of the past", and saying that "Hispanic voters will be repelled by the Republican presidential candidates" as she is for her fuzzy bleached hair.
She is of course pro-abortion, pro-gay marriage, pro-gun control and just slightly left of Karl Marx, and yet missed 62 votes in congress during 2011 putting her in the bottom 10% of all members of the US House of Representatives attendance record.
Despite her record Wasserman-Schultz was selected by President Obama to lead the DNC.
Obama at Bat - With a hat tip to Ernest Lawrence Thayer's Casey at the Bat.
Note: Casey at the Bat was first published in 1888, so if this is over your head, I suspect you are not alone. But the poem ranks right up there with "Who's on First" in baseball lore. In the poem the over confident home town hero lets two pitches go by and then strikes out.
Which to many is counter intuitive, so much so that many assume the Casey is the hero, only to be shocked when in fact Casey is just a little too self assured.
Cedar's Take: I'm counting the days to the first shout of "Play Ball" when the Cardinals and Marlins begin the season on Wednesday, April 4th less than six weeks away. The regular season ends on Wednesday October 3rd.
