Governor Chet Culver
Chet has been traveling the state for the past two years either promoting high-speed train travel or his I-Jobs borrowing scheme. One of the advantages an incumbent governor has is that he can travel the state on the taxpayer’s dime and stop in to tell local folks what a great job he’s doing for your community.
This practice only works because the media blindly follows most elected officials around like a lost puppy. WHO TV’s new reporter, Aaron Brilbeck asked a simple question, “Was this a waste of money? With the state’s budget problems, is this a necessary trip?
Good job out of the new guy at channel 13. I’m always leery of a guy who parts his hair down the middle, but if that’s what it takes for a reporter to have the stones to ask good questions, I’m all for it. Brilbeck’s bio says that he has taken two self defense courses and has been shot at twice. I also think he can probably out-run Culver. Good job out of him.
Governor Culver, you’re an idiot for getting pissed off and running away from a reporter when asked a simple question.
Kathie has returned from her vacation. She was in Puerto Rico.
I don’t hold it against anyone for taking a vacation, but do we really care where she was. Do the 114,000 Iowans who are out of work really care that the Des Moines Register’s political columnist can afford to head off to Puerto Rico? I doubt that they do.
However, since Kathie has made her little vacation public, I’d like to know who she went on vacation with. I doubt that her lobbyist husband would pull himself away from Iowa during the legislative session.
Anyway, Kathie is an idiot for thinking people care that she was on vacation. Nobody missed you. I can’t think of a single column you have written in the past year that was actually worth a crap. Here’s a thought, have a take, and don’t suck. The gospel of Jim Rome has worked well for those who have adopted it. Give it a whirl. You need to become relevant before the caucuses roll around Kathie…
