Sorry guys. I’ve let you down. I know that you rely on me for news. And I failed you.
I haven’t written a single word about the GOP candidate kerfluffle on the debate and all those mean questions that the CNBC moderators asked.
So I thought I’d leave it to my spokesman to make my comments for me:
I mean, what more could I offer? What more can be said about these clowns and their “‘First Percent’ Running For Prez” problems? Not much.
Frankly even I, a political junkie, am getting sick of it all.
So I’ve been trying to figure out just what we can do to get a little bit of relief from it all, without, well, getting too much relief from it all. And I have a few ideas:
- We could restrict GOP access to one channel (Fox would do nicely). Who wouldn’t want to listen to this:
- We could gamble on the odds of the various GOP contenders getting the nomination (there’s actually a website that does this: http://www.sportsbettingdime.com/news/presidential-election-super-serious-odds-and-props/. Me, I’m planning on making a mint by betting on Scott Walker becoming the 45th President of These United States. Nobody else will think to bet on him! I will clean up!
- Or we could eliminate all news of the GOP and fill the airtime with additional CSI series in different American cities! Because, really, you just can’t have too many gun-drug-sex related crime shows set in America’s cities, now can we?
I must confess, I’m leaning towards the last one. Because I have just the city for the show! A city that combines crime with a Democratic Tradition!
The Park City — Bridgeport, Connecticut!
Wait, wait! Don’t go. I’m not done! And I have good reason to suggest this location!
You see, I, personally, was born in Bridgeport– as were all of my family members whom you’ve come to know and love. The fact that we moved away really has no bearing on the issue of whether a good crime drama could be situated in Bpt.
Equally important, one of my relatives once served as Mayor of this fine city. I never met this cousin 238 times removed. But still, blood is blood and that’s important in any crime drama.
Lastly, on Tuesday, the City of Bridgeport — my home town — elected an ex-convict Mayor.
Voters in Bridgeport, Connecticut elected as their next mayor an ex-convict who spent seven years in federal prison after being convicted on 16 corruption charges.
Democrat Joe Ganim, 56, had served as mayor of Bridgeport – the state’s largest city – 12 years ago, from 1991 to 2003, when he resigned after being convicted of accepting hundreds of thousands of dollars from individuals and companies in exchange for sending city contracts in their direction, the New York Times reports.
Since he was released from prison five years ago, Ganim has worked as a legal assistant at his family’s law firm in Bridgeport, though he has not been able to have his law license restored.
Now tell me, which would you choose? To watch the GOP or to watch a colorful Democrat?
