Bev Perdue: Now Twice As Offensive

leave a comment »

Time is running out for North Carolina’s lame duck governor Bev Perdue, so she’s going to the hurry-up offense.

With the clock running down on her one-term governorship, Perdue simultaneously insulted the people of two states this week. As the News & Observer reports:

“Passage of a constitutional amendment defining marriage as solely between a man and a woman makes North Carolina “look like Mississippi,” Gov. Beverly Perdue said Friday.

Perdue’s approval rating in her home state is so dismal that she chose not to embarrass her party and herself by seeking a second term as governor. And this week the good people of Mississippi got to witness the wit, charm, and political savvy that has helped make Perdue a political failure.
The chairman of the Mississippi GOP said Perdue was out of touch with voters, while that state’s governor called the comments disappointing and said he would write Perdue a letter telling her so.
Disappointing, indeed.

National Christmas Tree Dies, Obama Blames Bush

leave a comment »

Here’s a metaphor for our times:

WASHINGTON (AP) — Federal officials say the National Christmas Tree planted near the White House a year ago has died and is being removed…

The tree replaced one that had stood on the Ellipse since 1978 but was destroyed by high winds in February 2011.

I wonder if President Obama will claim that this was President Bush’s fault, too.
