1. It seemed to me from watching last night’s report that Dale Russell had the emails detailing the affair and may have seen the threatening text messages. If they say half of what Mrs. Richardson said they say the Speaker’s in real trouble. I imagine we’ll see another Dale Russell report tonight.

      But why did Erick take all day and then he suddenly pronounces them “real”? What is the back story to his one line posting?

    I am voting for Doug Deal to take over his seat and become SPEAKER!


    Please send all donations to me and we will use it for strong planning sessions during happy hour. Think about it, could we really do a worse job?


    Icarus – Press Secretary ie HAPPY HOUR coordinator

    Buzz- Law Enforcement ie bouncer at HAPPY HOUR

    Chris- Treasury ie keep the bill low at HAPPY HOUR

    Kellie- Education ie makes sure we do drink to much at HAPPY HOUR

  3. Not that the Republicans need or want to take my advice, but how about someone like Fran Millar or Ed Lindsey as a placeholder Speaker for the next year. Someone who is not controversial but was a team player.

    When Dick Codey became acting Governor of New Jersey after McGreevey was pushed out it paid huge dividends for the Democrats there to be seen as being led by an outsider who wasn’t part of the corrupt establishment. Then Corzine came along and pushed him out of the way and we all know how that ended.

    Again, I doubt the Republicans would take or seek my advice, but that’s what I’d tell them to do. Someone who has the respect of his or her colleagues, press and business establishment who can say we’re putting this behind us and moving on.

    I assume that the House Rules say that if Speaker steps down voluntarily or not that the Speaker Pro Tempore becomes Speaker.

  5. Mike Hauncho says:

    Burkhalter will certainly move up as Speaker but I hear he will be the new GWCC Director. Look for Keen to be next Speaker, however, I would like to see Ed Lindsey at the top. He is as smart and straight forward as they come.

      Both of those guys have dirty laundry and I’m not sure they want the attention to those problems…
