Yepsen Interviews

David Yepsen interviewed for a new job yesterday. You can read the story here. By looking at his competition for the director's position at the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute and SIU I think he is a lock and they would be lucky to have him. I had to laugh though at some of the things he wants the center to focus on; it’s the same stuff he has written about for years at the Register.

You could get locked up for 3 years is you shoot yourself.

Don’t get me wrong here, NY Giants wide receiver, Plaxico Burress is a moron for shooting himself in the leg with a handgun recently. However the hairs on the back of my head stood up as I watch New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg say that Burress should serve 3 years behind bars if convicted of possessing a loaded handgun. I’m sorry I thought as an American I had the right to bear arms. Now I don’t know any of the details about what Burress did, and I’m pretty sure he doesn’t have a permit to carry a gun, but Bloomberg’s words were shocking if you ask me.

Are you smarter than a Becky Greenwald? Kurt Meyer’s is not.

Before the November election it became pretty clear that Becky Greenwald had no business running for Congress. That led me to wonder how in the world did she win her primary? Well I found the answer to that question today. The following is a letter that 4th District congressional candidate Kurt Meyer sent the FEC:

Michelle Lee Grant
Senior Campaign Finance Analyst
Reports Analysis Division
Federa Elections Commission
999 E Street N.W.
Washingtone, D.C. 20463

Identification Number: C00443325
Reference: Termination Report (7/1/08 - 7/31/08)

Dear Ms. Grant:

This is in response to your letter of August 21, 2008 promted by the Commission's preliminary review of Kurt Meyer for Congress compaign's termination report.

The purpose of this letter is to formally state that all loans made to the campaign by Kurt Meyer from personal funds have been forgiven.

This statement is submitted as an amendment to the campaign's termination report (2 U.S.C. 434(b)(8)).

If you have questions for me or need additioanl informaiton, I can be reached most conveniently via email at the following email address: *******@aol.com.

Holy misspellings and grammatical errors Batman. And you guys think I’m bad…

Lord of the Ring

It looks like President Elect Obama is taking some pointers from Kobe Bryant and is getting Michelle a $30,000.00 ring for her support during the Presidential campaign.

A couple of thoughts.

First, if I’m his daughters I’m pissed because all they got was a dog. Secondly, it shows Obama as an elitist.

Now I could care less what the dude does with his own money, but I doubt this sits well with people who have watched their 401k’s decrease in value by 40% in the last few months, or those who struggle to make they loan payments.

More on the Republican Rekonstruction later in the morning.

  1. Well, I was counting on Nobama paying my heating bill this winter, so I hope he isn't spending all of his money on that ring.
