New York paying for sex

January 27, 2007

Hi Brit,

This one is too funny to pass up, but kind of touchy to handle without going too far, so to speak.  New York Plans Official City Condom to Encourage Use  OK, I’m sure we’re all thinking the same jokes, so let’s enjoy a good laugh at New York’s expense, over their four cent official condoms, while we keep it clean, at least, in writing.  Well, I know it’s a short post, but that should just about wrap this one up.

Schumer and “friends”

January 26, 2007

Hi Brit,

One of our occasional visitors, madmouser, had a most interesting post this morning: Schumer’s Imaginary Friends.  Since it doesn’t link to the article in question, although it does, and rightly so, question the Senator’s sanity, I searched it out.

Chuck Schumer’s imaginay friends

This one is a must read.  It seems that the good folks in New York are getting more than their money’s worth from their US Senate selection, three for the price of one, if we count the imaginary friends that Chuck discusses politics with.  The question, of course, is which one of them is running the show?

OK, I do admit to having the, occasional, extra voice or four in my head, but that’s mostly just for tax purposes (although the IRS keeps denying the deduction for some reason,) and I generally don’t take their advice on anything more serious than what to have for lunch. 

Schumer, on the other hand, is basing national Democratic Party policy on the opinions of his brain ghosts.  Considering the liberals’ success in the last elections, Chuck’s imaginary friends may well be smarter than the average Democrat.  Now, while it’s really tempting to do so, I’m not calling for Schumer’s immediate removal from the Senate, nor his quick incarceration in a nice padded room.  No, no.  I want to drag this out as long as possible, then remove him from the Senate and lock him in a padded room.

One more thing, since Schumer has access to classified documents, do his “friends” need a security clearance?
