Something to Smile About
Here’s a little news that’ll put a simle on your face: the latest polls in Massachussetts show Elizabeth Warren running seven points ahead of Republican rival Scott Brown for the 2012 campaign for Ted Kennedy’s old Senate seat, thus proving (or at least strongly suggesting) that you don’t have to be a worthless piece of shit asswipe corporate tool to have a shot at a Senate seat in America.
Meanwhile, former NM Gov. Bill Richardson (D-His Pants) must be sweating bullets:
“Former governor reportedly accused of using campaign funds to settle sexual-harassment case; grand jury expected to meet next week “
@redmanlaw: It’s wrong to use campaign funds to pay off women you’ve groped? Don’t they all do that?
@Dodgerblue: [Brightly] “Good morning, everyone. We are pleased to announce the appointment of Daphne as the Special Assistant to the Deputy Director of Community Outreach for the Third Congressional District based here in Santa Fe. Daphne has extensive experience in community relations from her time as a cheerleader for the Phoenix Cardinals and at ASU, where she was a finance major. She’ll be working closely with the Governor on a lot of his initiatives and will be spending a lot of time out of the office on outreach, so we’ll need to set her up with a phone, iPad and credit card. She’ll report directly to the campaign’s liaison with the Governor’s Office due to the special nature of her duties. Thanks, and ‘Go, Bill!'”

TJ/ I had the pleasure of signing and delivering staff bonus checks this afternoon. Warmed my black little heart just a bit. Max and I still have to go hit Whoville and show them what’s what, however, maybe this weekend.
