Corralled thoughts by Matty

Dueling political heavyweights Bill “the Comeback Kid” Clinton and Sarah “Mama Grizzly” Palin had a face off of sorts in West Virginia yesterday. Clinton was in the state to throw his support and weight around for Gov. Joe Manchin, for the US senate seat vacated by the death of Robert “Sheets” Byrd. Palin, chose to save the environment from airplane pollution, and wrote an endorsement on her FaceBook page in support of his opponent businessman John Raese. WVA has not sent a republican to the senate since 1958 and Raese is up in the polls by 4.5%. The headline news out of this is Clinton made an older woman faint.

Don’t be surprised if only 28 of the miners decide to come out of the hole…

In liberal havens such as New York, San Francisco and Boston their unfunded pensions account for more than $30,000 per household, and the crown jewel, of fiscal irresponsibility, is the hometown of everyone’s hero- Chicago- it is $42,000 per household. That is a lot of loaves of bread per family, but it is to a great cause…
