FRIDAY'S HUM (01-05-07)
INAUGURAL ADDRESS GOOD...AND NOT SO GOOD?
If one reads small market AP drone Ross Sneyde's account of the Douglas inaugural speech, one would think, " Oh boy,here we go with partisan gridlock again."
But if one listens to WCAX, one would think things started off peachy:
"People on both sides of the aisle praised the Governor's remarks. Democrats say now is not the time to criticize - and they thought the Governor has the right agenda..."
Hmmm. Guess we'll have to wait for the Hall Monitor's assessment.
SADOWSKY IMPROVING; STILL UNDER THE WEATHER
Speaking of CAX, nice guy weatherdude Gary S. is recovering after he underwent open heart surgery after Christmas. Read how he's doing here.
'PINOCCHIO' SHUMLIN SLAMS DOUGLAS
It's starting already. Pinocchio Shumlin seems to applaud Douglas and his inaugural speech but if one reads between the lines it smacks of boastful arrogance.
"I was encouraged that our agenda and his agenda have become so similar. Frankly, it sounded like he's adopted our religion. Let's hope he comes to services."
Pinocchio then goes on to pick at the Governor.
"When we started talking about the tremendous challenges and opportunities (of global climate change) his response was, `There's not much Vermont can do.'
Way to go, Pinocchio. Nice bipartisan attitude. Love the way you guys are ready to work together.
BARACK OBAMA INHALED
When asked by Jay Leno if he inhaled (pot), Barack Obama replied, " That was the point". Funny stuff. Trouble is, the drug thing will derail Obama's prez run. See yesterday's latest from the Chicago Sun-Times.
Not only is Obama under pressure for the pot comment, the Washington Post claimed yesterday that " Obama has become the first potential presidential contender to admit trying cocaine..."
This from NBC5 from Chicago.
Looks like last month's darling of N.H. needs a spin doctor. Real soon.
