Remember me?

Couldn't resist.

Resist taking a stroll downtown to catch Tony the Prog's big speech outside Burlington City Hall.

Are the rumors true?

Will Progressive Party candidate for governor Anthony Pollina announce he has finally seen the light?

A Has an agreement been struck with Vermont Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Gaye Symington based on the reality that knocking out the two leading Republicans in office in Vermont - Gov. Jim "Scissorhands" Douglas and Lite-Gov Doobie-Doo - is what really counts?

Placed two small bets {$1.25 total} with veteran Vermont political insiders: one, a Republican in Montpeculiar, and the other a Democrat currently "inside the beltway."

I bet Pollina realized winning office, even the lite-governor's office, was better than winning no office. That he'd realized he could use the lite-gov's office to promote any damn cause he chose. That at the age of 56, the old hippie had seen the light!

Dream on, Pedro.

I lost.

During the noon-hour on Church Street today, Pollina received the largest Vermont press turnout he's ever gotten and what news did he have to announce?

None whatsoever. He's continuing his gubernatorial campaign.

Funny how politics works, eh?

Jim Douglas and Brian Dubie sure appreciate it, eh?

LOl... Gambling is illegal, Peter and leads to moral decay. Wise up. ;-)

Hope you are well.


It only took me a week to see this. I'm ashamed - my only excuse is I've had to work and I was very very tired. Welcome back.

Peter - been out in Iowa, another state where common sense generally prevails, so missed your first blog in what seems like eons... really glad that you're back, and doing well we hope - so now that the Dems seem to have settled things nationally, we so badly need your take on all of the upcoming elections!
