Tim Goeglein has loyally served President Bush for over seven years and worked tirelessly on his behalf to promote the President's policies. Among his contributions, Tim helped establish the President's Faith-Based and Community Initiative, and the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief. He also played an important role in the confirmation of Supreme Court Justices Roberts and Alito.
Today, Tim accepted responsibility for the columns published under his name in his local newspaper, and has apologized for not upholding the standards expected by the President. The President was disappointed to learn of the matter, and he was saddened for Tim and his family. He has long appreciated Tim's service, and he knows him to be a good person who is committed to his country. President Bush accepted Tim's resignation today.
"The Saints will offer one fewer game in their ticket package this year because their Oct. 26 home game against the San Diego Chargers has been moved to London. Fans won't be charged for that game. But they will be able to buy tickets or travel packages for the London game through the National Football League before they go on sale to the public."
Mighty, mighty Christian of you boys to think of us plebeian season ticket holders. Mighty.
Unfortunately, Judge Frank Marullo, who drops the ball more than Devery Henderson, dropped the ball.
"Judge Frank Marullo, who presided over her trial and set today's hearing, postponed the matter after meeting with Frank's appellate lawyers. At issue is Frank's recent appeal to the United States Supreme Court, which on Feb. 19 refused to review her death sentence.
Frank's attorneys have 25 days from that ruling to ask for a rehearing. Marullo said he had called today's hearing prematurely and rescheduled it for April 14."
Antoinette Frank is a bad person, and the sooner she's gone, the better. This, from a guy who's not really in favor of the death penalty. The other one of her ilk that needs to be dispatched is our old buddyRobocop.
OK, this is probably of interest only to me, but the outfit Hillary is wearing here reminds me of the uniform of the Bridgemen drum and bugle corps. The Bridgemen's uniforms were, of course, modeled after pimp suits.
Chef Donald Link of Cochon received the "THE CRAZY BASTARD SPECIAL ACHIEVEMENT AWARD For the chef/operator who did the most insanely wonderful or heroic fucking thing in recent memory". If you don't know why he got it, watch the New Orleans episode of No Reservations. Available for download for $1.99 on iTunes.
Donors are not stupid. They can clearly see a pattern here. If the Louisiana Supreme Court lets the appeals court decision stand, it will have a chilling effect on charitable giving in this very needy state. The courts will be telling donors: Give at your own risk. The charitable organizations you support are under no obligation to use your gifts for the purpose you have designated. If this happens, many people may, understandably, stop giving.
Way to go, Scotty boy. You're gonna lose this one, and the cost to the University -- not just the cost in goodwill you've already levied against Tulane, but the financial cost to reinstate Newcomb after you tried so damned hard to obliterate it, will be the final straw for the board, and they'll boot your misguided profiteering ass to the curb.
Nagin: How much more accessible can I be? You ask me to come on every other week on this show, I’ve done that.
Paulsen: You’ve been very good about that.
Nagin: I’m out in the community.
So now, Nagin is using the Clay Davisdefense. Brilliant, Clarence, just brilliant. You don't have receipts because you were handing the cash to the poor! You don't have time to be accessible because you're busy being accessible!
The Aryan Nation is after you? Sheeeeee-it. It's the white and black folks that live here that you lied to that want to see your head on a stick. Put it at the city line as a warning to others.
Nagin: I have busting my butt bringing this city back.
Anything to keep the brand out there, bitch. I guess what we would call "campaigning" and "fund raising" you would call "busting your butt".
Nagin: Well because, your newscast, the local newspapers, are feeding these awful, ugly talk shows that are feeding these blogs. If you go look at some of these blogs out there and some of the stories that come from the paper and you read the comments, it’s some of the most vile, angry, people that I’ve ever seen in this community.
Paulsen: Are you concerned about your safety.
Nagin: I’ve got coverage. If somebody approach me wrong, I’m going to cold cock them. That’s the bottom line. You can come with that foolishness if you want, but you’ll see a side of Ray Nagin that you haven’t seen.
I want to see that side, See-Ray. The side I haven't seen.
The honest, competent side.
Evidently, nobody else has seen it either.
OK, first, if it's the NOLA.com forums, yeah, they're racist idiots. If it's the NOLA blogosphere you're talking about, then you are once again as delusional as Eddie the Eagle.
And if you try to cold cock me, See-Ray, I'm gonna knock your wormy egotistical ass back to Texas.
Oh, and Clancy, who, BTW, endorsed Nagin and endorsed PBJ, thinks that we're the wahoos. Clancy, more people read my blog in a day than read yours in a week. You are such a supreme egotistical self-righteous schmuck. But thanks for writing!
Finally, Clarence, if this picture puts you and your family at risk, then you deserve every little bit of it, you twit.
