Comment of the day honors go to Random Thought for this great summary of the King’s Speech:

Underweight babies from the Cleveland Clinic, and old people who shouldn’t go to nursing homes, must eat Haagen-Daaz ice cream when they go to the opera house (next to the Sherwin-Williams store in Mexico) to watch Bono help Kasich combat hunger and poverty after he helps get all the prisoners released from jail to make room for the union protesters.  At least that’s what I got out of it… am I too far off?

    Not too far off but, you really must include “I’m not sleeping in the barn” because “The state of Texas grew faster in five and a half months than Ohio did in the last 10 years” and I’m going to use those barns to house immigrants so we can claim our state is growing, too.

  • MissGov

    And, don’t forget, “Teach for America is coming to Ohio. I promise you that. It’s coming to Ohio,” just as soon as I can get them to change their website that promises them fair wages, health insurance, vision and dental and a pension plan.

    Nothing sheds that “elitist” image like Haagan Daas, opera houses, and refusing to sleep in the barn.

  • Random Thoughts

    Yeah… I missed out on including the trip to Rwanda in a car with the creators of Google, his in-line skates strapped to the roof following the high-speed rail tracks that never got built because Federal money is bad.

    Honest to goodness, I nearly had whiplash trying to keep up with each change of subject…

    I missed out on his rambling, verbal incontinence – please tell me that he inexplicably quoted scripture at some point during the event.

  • MissGov

    I can remember during the campaign going to Ashtabula County and having a young girl walk up to me and say, Mister, please don’t tax my eggs. I go door to door and this is how I make a living. Please, Mister, don’t break my business.

  • MissGov

    Nope, no scripture!

  • MissGov

    Finally, my absolute favorite, “In Lordstown, the union and the management has worked well together.”

    Not one reference to God or scripture.

    Wow, my parents are both tenured teachers and you would be hard pressed to find 2 individuals who are harder working than they. I have also spent time in multiple school districts in Ohio as a sub a after I graduated from college and before I found a job. The teachers I encountered there were all hard working, decent individuals who have been taking pay cuts and increases in out of pocket costs of their benefits for years. Until you have done the job of a teacher, I suggest you not make snarky comments about how hard they do or do not work. Most people would not last an entire day in the classroom, yet our teachers keep going back and giving their all day after day, year after year.

    Btw, the double dipping actually only happens with administrators, who by STATE LAW are able to keep working and making a salary and draw their full retirement. Administrators are NOT union members and draw salaries that are much higher than teachers. Please check your facts…

    Cigarette smoking, expense reports, and reimbursement?

    Um, we’re educators, not extras on Mad Men.
