This makes for good reading on an irritatingly cold and blustery Saturday. The challenge as always with celebrity congress people like Mrs. Bachmann is with low information voters. We almost jumped that hurdle with Mr.Grave’s impressive campaign but her investors bought more TV time. One of Mr. Grave’s challenges this next time around, even if Mrs. Bachmann decides not to run, will be to speak as a real person and not as the product of image and campaign managers.
Good points Greg.
I am alerting my confederate scolds in Leicester, London and Leeds. This is could be very good.
The NRA pimps are seldom held up to serious challenge by the mainstream press & teleprompter readers or by the fractured, garrulous Babylons of niche soap boxes we now navigate on the internet — this venue, of course, excepted. I am no longer sure what the public attitude is.
Good article. I am an angered when legislators dodge questions and fail to assign their aides to respond to voters.
Nicely written. I laughed and cried. I was at the capitol today for the first time in over a year. The house was in session so I climbed the impressive stairway to the public gallery above the Republican side of the aisle. Who should be speaking from the floor about DFL abuse of house procedures? Well Mrs. landslide Mary Franson from up north. This is truly a house divided.
I am advocating for the replacement of human killing weapons with the employment of wit, humor and charm as a means of defusing threatening situations. Its worked in the past. I’ll try some on Cornish next time I see him. But first I’m gonna wear a broad brimmed hat like Quentin Crisp.
Congratulations Big E and Joe. The new look is clean and mean. Now get lunch ready for your respective kids.
