MEDIA WANTS 2 YEAR TERMS FOR GOVERNOR
Think about it, folks. With candidates spending more and more, it's a no-brainer to understand why media outlets prefer the deux ans term, and we wonder how much they have fought insidiously to ensure it stays that way. Has anyone noticed particular coverage, or lack thereof, when the issue has surfaced. Please let us know.
A SWEET TASTING DROPLET OF IRONY
Juicy tidbit from Shay Totten's splendid "Fair Game" column, spotlighting Will Kinzel, who is a top aide to Speaker-elect John Boehner, REPUBLICAN from Ohio.
You see - Will's dad is Bob Kinzel, the sturdy news dude from VPR, which I think we can all agree leans slightly (ahem) left, much loved by many DEMOCRATS.
FIVE CORNERS UPDATE
Speaking of Bob Kinzel, I was at the Essex Junction Five Corners light this afternoon, listening to Kinzel's last interview with Governor Jim Douglas. The light was taking extra long to change, which I didn't mind, since I was enjoying the show immensely. Gov Smoothpants was his usual eloquent self, and various callers showed smoochy radio love, urging JD to run for Senator or President or lauding him on his knowledge of our fine state. BK even thanked him for rating high on the accessability scale; the good Governor was everywhere, all at the same time.
Right when the interview ended, the light changed. It was perfect.
Essex Junction Five Corners light - I love you!
