Stuck On Stupid

By Wyatt Earp | March 22, 2006

Does running for public office require a full frontal lobotomy?

Dateline: Philadelphia, PA - City Councilman Rick Mariano (D), now convicted of eighteen counts of bribery, money-laundering, and related offenses, still refuses to step down from his position. Pennsylvania law states that politicians convicted of an offense may retain their position with pay until sentencing. The Philadelphia Inquirer interviewed fourteen current members of City Council, and asked them if they would call on Mariano – now a convicted felon – to step down. Of the fourteen, only Michael Nutter stated he would do so.

One out of fourteen. And before you get all warm and fuzzy for Nutter’s moral stance, he is expected to run for mayor in 2007.

Dateline: Newark, NJ - Vice President Dick Cheney flew into scenic Newark for a GOP fundraiser aimed at unseating “selected, not elected” U.S. Senator Robert Menendez (D). Curiously, New Jersey State Senator Thomas Kean, Jr. arrived too late to be seen with the VP. Kean cited “bad traffic” as his lame excuse. The event raised $400,000 for Kean, who didn’t even have the courtesy to appear with Cheney – the very reason why so much money was brought in.

Kean – who has been distancing himself from the Bush Administration, but not from the cash raised by them – claimed that traffic was too heavy to get from nearby Trenton to the fundraiser on time. I wonder if Kean – and his driver/security detail – would have been on time for a family emergency? If Republicans in the Garden State vote for Kean, they should be ashamed of themselves.

Dateline: The Chocolate City of New Orleans - Jackass Mayor Ray Nagin, who is up for re-election on my birthday (April 22), stated that he would allow the residents of his post-Apocalyptic town to rebuild their residences “anywhere,” but cautioned them about the low-lying areas:

“I’m confident that the citizens can decide intelligently for themselves.”

Eh, what? You mean the same citizens who looted the city, raped and pillaged fellow citizens inside the Superdome, and randomly fired at police and other emergency workers? Nagin, you are a moron. Pull out of the New Orleans race and run for office in a real “chocolate city” – Hershey, PA.

    I would like to point out that I didn’t vote for Corzine. . .or anyone else for that matter because one was as bad as the next. I was under the impression that Pat Dinuzio of the Smithereens was running for NJ Governor or something. That’s a platform I can get behind. If he offers a tax break based on how many Smithereens CDs you own, I am Golden!!

    I think the voters in Philadelphia should go down to the jail and toss that bastard Mariano from the tower in city hall. It’s what he wanted isn’t it.

    I think you nderestimate the delays that Government officials have in heavy traffic. Look how hard is is for President Palmer’s brother to get the the “retreat”. Have a heart. Speaking of which, I think that President Logan should declare marshal law in Louisiana. It’s only fair after Los Angles.

    I didn’t vote for Cornhole either. Kean…dumb move. It is a little early in his political career to bite the hand that feeds him and fed his father. (Route 1? Ever hear of the NJ Turnpike…dumbass)

    Mariano…obviously the guy is insane…why expect him to step down? Nutter? Whatever.

    We’re taking daughter #1 (and the rest of the horde, of course) to Hershey for her birthday.

    Mmmmm, chocolate….

    “Does running for public office require a full frontal lobotomy?”

    I’m pretty sure it does.
