Did John gypt on the tip?

“DEER PARK, Ohio – Ebola, evil voices and the devil.

Those are just a few of the things a Butler County bartender cited as reasons he was going to kill House Speaker John Boehner this past fall, federal agents said.

Michael Robert Hoyt, 44, was indicted Jan. 7 on charges of threatening to murder the congressman in a plot police said included poisoning his drink at a country club.

Hoyt served drinks to Boehner for more than five years at the Wetherington Country Club in West Chester and was known as “Bartender Mike” to employees there.

Hoyt called police on Oct. 29, a week after being fired from the club, and blamed Boehner for his woes, police said.”

Hoyt had sent an email to Boehner’s wife after losing his job.

“Hoyt: “Mr. Boehner, I sincerely do not want to embarrass anyone. I am willing to drop all of this if you and Dr. Bob Buring deliver my termination report to me personally, or transport me to a secure location where the three of us can have an honest conversation. If I had any intention of hurting Mr. Boehner, I could have poisoned his wine at Wetherington many, many times. I do not believe I have lied about anything nor exaggerated. This is extremely urgent. Tuesday. Earlier the better. Talk to Dr. Bob Buring. PLEASE!!! We can work together and succeed or …..fail miserably. My phone died. I am at home. I have a dog and cat so please do not bust in. I will leave my lights on inside and out all night. You probably already know where I live. REDACTED Matson Ave. Deer Park, Ohio.”

Debbie Boehner: “What is this about??”

Hoyt: “Mrs. Boehner, I was fired. I could not email Mr. Boehner directly because of the zip code block on his email. It doesn’t matter anyway. If he took a real interest in anything he would insure his Club was better than the Country, but they are exactly the same and life goes on SSDD. Sincerely, Mike. Mike, your former bartender.”

He also told the cops he was Jesus Christ and Boehner was the Devil. He’s under psychiatric care now and faces up to 30 years in jail.

“Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Tuesday announced the hiring of a campaign manager for his likely 2016 presidential bid, part of an aggressive effort to build a national political team as the race for the White House heats up.

The hiring of strategist Chip Englander, who recently guided a gubernatorial candidate to victory in Illinois, marks a clear step forward for the Kentucky Republican as he prepares to transform his cadre of loyalists into a full-scale campaign.

Doug Stafford, Paul’s longtime confidant, will remain as his chief political adviser. In an interview Tuesday, Stafford said he will rely on Englander “for the day-to-day execution” of Paul’s operation.

The move underscores Paul’s unorthodox approach to presidential politics and his expected candidacy, with plans to put an emphasis on outreach to the poor and younger voters while also courting conservative activists in early-primary states.

In an interview Tuesday, Englander argued that Paul’s unconventional positions would lay the foundation for a potent Republican coalition. Paul has articulated mostly non-interventionist views on foreign policy, while taking hardline stances against tax hikes and President Obama’s health-care law domestically.

“America has intractable problems and it’s going to take a transformational leader to fix them,” Englander said. “Senator Paul is going to be the bold, transformational figure in this race.”

The hiring of Englander comes as former Florida governor Jeb Bush and former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney are moving closer to launching their own 2016 campaigns and connecting with donors and Republican officials.”

I can’t see Paul having much of a chance, not much more than Ross Perot back in the 90s. If nothing else he could switch to independent and actually peel off votes from a valid GOP contender. For perspective on the front runners so far see here.

“PARIS — Masked gunmen burst into the Paris offices of a French satirical newspaper on Wednesday and killed 12 people, including top journalists and two police officers, before fleeing in a car. The gunmen were still at large at dusk, as an extensive police dragnet spread across a traumatized city.

Among the dead were four prominent cartoonists who have repeatedly lampooned Islamic terrorists and the Prophet Muhammad, leading to speculation that the attack on the newspaper, Charlie Hebdo, was the work of Islamic militants acting alone or in concert with extremist groups.

A police guard assigned to protect the newspaper was among the first victims. A second police officer, who responded to reports of the shooting, was killed on the sidewalk outside the office by the fleeing suspects, the Paris police said. The shooting of the second police officer was captured in a widely-seen video.”

Again the “religion of peace and tolerance” shows it’s face. Making fun of Mohammed isn’t tolerated, although making fun of Jesus Christ, Buddah or any other religious figure is oki-doki.

Hope you got tickets to this. If you do, do you have extras? What a lineup!

“No-frills hard rock band AC/DC will anchor the first night of the three-day Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, the annual party in the desert city of Indio that’s held over two consecutive weekends each April. The festival, long known for its marriage of dance and independent music, will then put away the devil horns for its second and third nights, as promoters Goldenvoice have tapped bluesy rocker Jack White and earnest rapper Drake as fellow headliners.

Other acts at the top of the bill for the dual Coachella festivals, set for the weekends of April 10-12 and April 17-19, include Steely Dan, Alabama Shakes, Tame Impala, Ride, Florence & the Machine, David Guetta, Belle & Sebastian, the Weeknd, Squarepusher, Alt-J, FKA Twigs, Flying Lotus, Porter Robinson and more.

Remaining tickets for the two weekends will go on sale Wednesday at noon via the official Coachella website.”

Kathy Griffin Naked Ice Bucket Challenge

Because it’s late and weird.

“At this point, if you’re going to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, you’re going to have to find a way to stand out from the crowd. Comedian Kathy Griffin did just that and much more last night when she premiered her charity-minded video on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

“I thought I should take it up a notch,” Griffin said, before she showed her unabashed video to the world. She received from assistance from the Backstreet Boys’ A.J. McLean and Parks and Recreation’s Aubrey Plaza, who both challenged Griffin to douse herself for the ALS Association.

As traumatizing as it is to get ice cold water poured over yourself while fully clothes, doing it utterly naked on late night television is 100 times worse, for everyone involved.”
