Speaking of Idiots … Again
How much time do I spend in Virginia these days? About this much!
That post below was getting bombarded with a discussion of absentee “Governor” Tim Kaine, so I may as well devote a post to him, which I’ve been meaning to do anyway. Before anyone bitches, I was not a fan of Gilmore doing the same thing while Governor either. Being Governor is (or should be) a full time job, and being DNC Chairman is obviously way too time consuming for Kaine in the midst of The Great Recession.
Kaine said he would do his DNC duties in the evenings and on weekends, but he has done most of it during the work week, as pointed out in today’s WaPo article on the topic. My favorite line in the article was this one:
“Of his travel, Kaine said: “If anyone wants to know where I am, all they have to do is ask. . . . There’s nothing covert about it.” ”
Well, the Post asked to get a copy of his DNC schedule and got … nothing.
So Kaine lied about how much time and when he would spend time on DNC affairs, then lies again about being open about his travels. What is it with politicians being unable to tell the simple truth and live up to their pronouncements?
