    That's correct, I was watching this on the news last night after I played Pong.
    The entire press gallery laughed at both of them after Martin announced the "move". I was laughing my ass off too, if it wasn't for the terrible timing, I think she'd make a great liberal. Human resources teehee - maybe she can do something about the federal government's language policies LOL! :D

    :laugh: Alright then, seems you could move this government to Illinois. A couple of days ago, our wonderful governor, pissed about a federal investigation into his 'financial dealings' resulting in a flurry of subpoenas responded to a reporter's question regarding his downslide in a poll, saying he has the 'testicular virility' to withstand such nonsense. :shocked: No, I am NOT kidding:

    It's pretty funny, especially when you realize that he is now in these difficulties because of a 'family fight' with his father-in-law, a Chicago alderman over the holidays, that went public in January. :rolleyes:

    She wasn't taken very seriouly during her first attempts at politics, I think this just made it worse. Oh well, she's really young, she has lots of time to live it down.

    I caught the tail end of a local radio talk show yesterday afternoon, and the last few callers were really pissed, should be interesting listening today.

    One more thing (if it wasn't funny enough as it is), Last night, a reporter asked her if her boyfriend broke up with her because she switched parties. :teeth:

    :laugh: I dread to think what they may ask the governor's wife! :shocked: Please don't tell him or her how comfortable they might feel here, we have enough of them!

    Actually, there was anothr BC MP accused of trying to bribe a pizza cook/delivery guy. He signed an affidavit stating that she would help him obtain citizenship if he delivered free pizzas to her party headquarters. No joke! A stripper worked on her campaigne and received special treatment too (I may not have all the details exact, but that's the overall gist). The MP was cleared, and the pizza guy admitted he was lying, still pretty freekin funny though. She was on the raido Saturday, crying about how she'll never live that down. Guess she had some enemies somewhere. :D
