Granholm Tweets Arnold: keep ur pants zipped

Full quote: "Another guy guv admits 2 cheating on his wife. Maybe we need more women governors. Guys: Keep ur pants zipped, for Pete's sake."

So Professor Granholm of UC Berkeley weighs in on the apparent moral superiority of women over men.  I guess she was too busy screwing up Michigan to engage in that other sort of behavior.

Frankly Ms. Professor Granholm, your Governorship isn't exactly one to be held up as a shining example for the rest of the country to emulate.  You and Arnold are running neck and neck in that regard.  We sure don't need more Governors like you, Professor, be they male or female.

I Voted

Today I voted to tell Virg Bernero no, you can't have any more of my money.  I need it more than you do.  You have streets to resurface- I have a roof to resurface.  You have Police to pay for - I have $4.29 gasoline to pay for.  Somehow I have to find a way to pay for that on my current income - so do you.  So cut the fat, put off purchases, sell off assets you don't need (like some of those school buildings you've closed), and all the other things that we poor peasants have to do when times are hard.

Edited to Add:  By a slim margin, Lansing voters rejected the tax increase proposed by Mayor Bernaro.  Frankly I expect to see an increase in "Impeding Traffic" speeding violations issued to try and make up the shortfall.  Nobody gets any points, but the City gets $120 or so each.
