cur-mud-geon: anyone who hates hypocrisy and pretense and has the temerity to say so; anyone with the habit of pointing out unpleasant facts in an engaging and humorous manner
I had the 'pleasure' of meeting with one of Congressman Obey's staff members, Paul Carver, on Super Tuesday in the Congressman's absence. Obey is the Congressman who represents Wausau and the surrounding area, and who is the 'Big Dog' so far as appropriations go in the new world controlled by the Democrats. Congressman Obey has the reputation of a 'pit bull' and it appears that he hires in his own image. The staff person, Paul Carver, is a native of England and had an attitude that was apparent from the very moment he walked out of his area and stated that ours weren't the names he had been expecting. We had the pleasure of Mr. Carver's presence since the House of Representatives isn't in session this week. I have no idea if the Congressman would've been more hospitable, less hospitable or about the same.
Super Tuesday is upon us and it is very possible that we'll know the selections of both major parties by late tonight or early Wednesday morning.
I encourage readers to click on the earlier Elementary School Blog for the give and take between citizen Irwin Fletcher and School Board member Bruce Warnimont.
I will be in our nation's capitol for a few days and thought I'd share thoughts from here for those who might be interested. I have been coming out for the past few years to meet with our Wisconsin Representatives and Senators on behalf of an industry trade association of which I'm a part.
