I am not talking about the Guam Primary...

Big Brown Beats The Filly Going Away...

I am talking about the 134th running of the Kentucky Derby, you racist bastards.

In an exciting race, the 20-horse, Big Brown (going off at 7-2), came from nowhere to trounce the field, beating the filly, Eight Belles. However, tragedy followed when Eight Belles broke her foreleg on the track, and had to be euthanised.

The Lifeguard, not usually a big fan of horse racing, was hopeful as the horses broke from the gate. I had wagered--with former President Clinton--a box of Cuban cigars on Gayego (a horse owned by Cuban immigrants). Sadly, my horse is still running (although, so is former President Clinton's). He had staked it all on Recapturetheglory.

So, the (former) Prez and I sat down together to watch the race as we slugged back a couple of pitchers of mint juleps. The best part, however, was watching the hot chicks with their big hats. Oh, and we used every one of those cigars...if you know what I mean.

Ah, The Kentucky Derby....

Yes, I know...

So wrong, for so many reasons.

Big Brown wins the second jewel in the Triple Crown. The filly is still dead.

Could this be a metaphor for the race for the Democrat nomination?

The Lifeguard hits a home run with this prediction.

Kudos!
