Another Campaign Season...Usual Media Shenanigans

Hello Yupette:

Another Fall campaign season is beginning. With the usual "Re-Elect All Incumbents" shenanigans by the region's media. The Post is really outrageous this year, supporting Mayor Adrian "Gentrification" Fenty to an extent that is embarrassing to honest journalists. The other local newspapers are not much better.

Time to Sue 'Nanny Nancy' Federal Employees And Their Agencies?

Hi Yupette:

So the RePigs are all upset because a career federal employee got sued by the County Board for carrying out the Bush Administration's HOT Lanes $teal on I-395? Too bad.

I would love to see the Nanny Nancy Republicans, who micro-manage our lives from their federal offices, and their agencies sued for defamation and slander, which is what many of them do at "work" when they aren't in employee counseling sessions. And if it's not Federal employees, it's people who work for the NGOs.

Enough. Time is long overdue for federal and NGO employees to be held accountable for actions and activities performed while they are supposed to be "working".
