Running From Office

A Fool and His Money Are Parted at the Mayflower

The Guv who was: Client 9. How long until that becomes the trade name of an expensive perfume, or a line of Victoria’s Secret negligee, or even a code work in the escort business for a high roller? After watching the wife of the N.Y. Guv at the press conference today, I’m sure she deserves plenty of retail therapy. Perhaps he can get the Kobe Bryant playbook. Perhaps the Guv can buy the bauble from Kobe’s wife. Somehow, watching him say he is sorry just doesn’t seem like enough punishment. Poor wifey looked like she was hungover – the wrath of grapes.

More Political Brickbats: Ok, let’s see if we are able to make heads or tails of this political game. One of Barrack’s minions called Hillary a monster and resigned under pressure as a result. One of Hillary’s minions struck back with a nya-na-na-na-na stating that the only reason Barrack is running is because he is black. Huh? If that were the case President Jesse Jackson would have had his Rainbow Coalition Cabined in place several elections ago. BTW, the statement maker was none other than the first female VP candidate. Oh yes, Hillary’s reaction was a severe mild slap on the wrist. Can’t we all just get along?

Another Politician in Trouble: These are difficult times for politicians. Yet another scandal has rocked the foundation of the political system in New Haven, Connecticut. That bucolic community that boasts Yalies and other Elis has seen one of its icons tumble from grace. Michael Sheridan was discovered to have committed a crime and was stripped of his political office. He was barred from attending activities surrounding his office and was banished from the city-owned property where he had served. Michael, formerly class vice president, had committed the grievous error of purchasing a bag of Skittles from a classmate. A school official stated that candy sales had been banned in the school district since 2003. Is there no end to the transgressions of rogue politicians?

Leaving Las Vegas: Visitor volume has declined in Las Vegas over the past year a whopping 0.6%. That is less than one percent. Such a downward trend must be stopped and reversed! Fortunately the brain trust of those who take care of such nagging problems plan to spend $ 12 million to tease the gamblers back to the Valley of the Dollars. If you snooze, you lose.

The Gift that Keeps on Giving: Clinics, doctors and nurses continue to come under scrutiny as officials investigate unsafe practices. Hepatitis and other diseases could have been transferred. Those implicated and shown to have been a party to the fiasco need to update their resumes: References – “None. I’ve left a path of destruction behind me.”

Dr. Feelgood...where were his state troopers? That detail must have been happy to get out of Albany and party in the real SIN CITY....doncha know waht happens in DC stays in DC! Just ask Wilbur I wonder if ex Gov Spitzer recalls what happened to the late Gov Nelson Rockefeller....a man who came & went....

NELSON A. ROCKEFELLER (1908 - 1979), U.S. vice-president

Official details of Rockefeller's death changed repeatedly in the days following his fatal heart attack on January 26, 1979. The first report indicated Rockefeller was with his 25-year-old aide Megan Marshack when he collapsed in his Manhattan townhouse at 11:15 P.M. Marshack was said to have immediately placed an emergency medical call. But days later it was announced that the former vice-president had succumbed an hour earlier, at 10:15 P.M., and that Marshack, instead of calling paramedics, had called her friend, Ponchita Pierce. It was Pierce who had called for assistance. The family doctor believed Rockefeller had died instantaneously, but why did two women let an hour pass before calling for help? The Rockefeller family did not wish to pursue the matter and would not consent to an autopsy.

THE IRONMAN was here......
