Frankly Sad News

Darn! Now, I can’t help defeat him. I was kind of sad to learn that after more than 30 years of pushing this country further and further left, Massachusetts’ favorite gay caballero, Barney Frank, would not be seeking re-election next year. I always enjoy sending a few dollars to anyone running against my least-favorite politicians. And I can tell you, there’s never a dearth of choices. Are there any other Bay Staters I should help defeat?

Barack Obama campaigns like crazy, and you pay for it. The following statistics shouldn’t surprise you, but they help confirm that our President is the duplicitous rascal we all know he is. Between Jan. 1 and Nov. 17 of his third year in office, Bill Clinton held 40 events in 24 days in the States his handlers considered vital for re-election. During the same period, George W. Bush held 49 events in 34 days. As of Nov. 17, Obama had attended 54 events in 11 battleground States over 42 days. He has attended two more since then. Taxpayers foot the bill for almost every trip.

NBC apologizes to Michele Bachmann. When Presidential contender Michele Bachmann appeared on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” last week, the band celebrated her entrance by playing a vulgar rock song, “Lyin’ Ass Bitch.” The band members thought it was a hoot; some of them had even tweeted to brag about what they would do. Imagine the outcry if they had done something similar to Hillary Clinton or Michelle Obama. At least Bachmann got an apology from an NBC executive. Were it up to me, heads would have rolled.

Feeling cramped in your workspace? If you sometimes feel that your office cubicle has shrunk, you’re right. A study by the International Facility Management Association says that non-management personnel have lost 15 square feet of office space since 1994. Jamming more employees into less space means lower rent and smaller utility bills. It also means knowing a lot more about your neighbors (and they know a lot more about you) than you’d probably like.
