Mari’s Stain

Iowa’s First Lady Mari Culver thinks that outcome of the retention elections is a “stain” on the history of our state.  No offense, Mari, but so was your husband’s time in office.  Look, we all know that you, your husband, and every other lib out there is incensed that 540,000 Iowans voted the three Justices out, but what about the will of the people?  Seems to be that libs like you forget that this is the people’s government, not the government of the trial lawyers or gay rights activists.

You know, the more I think about it, if you really think that Iowa’s merit selections system is so great, then you should be celebrating that the system worked.  Like it or not, the your side failed to make a compelling argument.  So stop bitching about those of use that used the system you guys think is so darn great.

It also wasn’t lost on me that the Register’s Editorial Board gave Gov.-Elect Terry Branstad a “thistle” for calling Sen. Mike Gronstal a “dictator,” yet was mum on Mari calling the outcome of an election a stain.  Apparently political decorum is only something to be outraged about when you disagree with a person’s opinion on a subject.

Speaking of stains…

Mari Culver isn’t opposed to all stains; she supported John Edwards in the 2008 Iowa caucuses.  Edwards is a scumbag, I think most people in America know that by now.  Mari attended Elizabeth Edwards’ funeral.  I think it’s sad that she died of cancer, but I would have kicked his ass to the curb a whole lot sooner if I had been in her shoes.

Kathie Obradovich is a tool…

Kathie is all concerned about Rod Roberts leading the Department of Inspections and Appeals for the Branstad administration.  The Register pointed out that Roberts and his wife both served on the board of a care facility in Carroll.  Isn’t it a good thing that the person that is going to head this department actually has a little real life experience?

Kathie writes, “He [Roberts] says he feels he would be fair and objective in dealing with any cases that arise from those facilities. He should instead pledge to have no part in any regulation of operations where he has personal ties and relationships. Staff members should handle it. Roberts may not have any direct conflict of interests, but he should be just as concerned about the appearance of conflict.”

It’s almost as if she’s never met Rod Roberts, who’s about as straight of an arrow as you will find.

Turn the heat back on…

Is this some kind of sick joke?  Last week it was warm enough to walk around in a sweatshirt, this week I’m trying to find my snowmobile suite.  Wait, I think since Sarah Palin came on the scene they are now referred to snow machines.  Heck, I tried to buy a snow blower this weekend and the guy looked at me all weird and said, “you mean a snow thrower, right?”  What the heck is going on?
