Boning the turkeys
NEWS FROM the front: Ken Blackwell, the guy who ran so poorly against Ted Strickland for governor in 2006, is reported to be interested in chairing the Republican National Committee. Wow! A friendly word to moderate Republicans, Democrats and Palin's Pro-American Party: Get out of his way and let him have it! With him around, your workload in electing your own candidates in 2010 will be reduced by at least half.....Speaking of turkeys, Glenn Beck, the newly arrived right-wing ding-a-ling at Fox (from CNN) says states that object to government bailouts have an absolute right to secede from the Union. With some Alaskans of a similar mind, they should all be reminded that the U.S. is a country (not a continent) where secession has been tried without success. Nice try, Glenn, if not original!...And speaking of bailouts, Miriam-Webster's online report has declared "bailout" to be the "word of the year." However, over the course of the current economic remedies, " flailout" might have been more appropriate some days.
