DEBATE IN THE 8
OK, so it doesn’t have the ring of “Thrilla in Manilla” but the candidates to fill the Giffords seat here in Congressional District 8 are getting ready to rumble… moderator-style.
KUAT (channel 6) will run a pre-taped candidate forum tonight (Wed 5.16) at 6 pm.
Kelly and Barber will then face off in a live, open-to-the-public debate next Wednesday (5.23) at 7 pm.
The main mud-slinging so far has revolved around which candidate is covertly planning to rob senior citizens of their Medicare and Social Security. Because obviously someone is going to steal it.
So, if you haven’t yet decided by whom you’d prefer your grandma be fleeced, I suggest tuning in.
PRECIOUS LITTLE KNOWLEDGE
State Attorney General, Tom Horne — who used to run AZ’s schools, btw — filed a motion for authorization to intervene in the design of TUSD’s new ethnic studies program.
Apparently psychic, Horne is poised to swoop in, brandishing the double-edged Excalibur of state -vs- local law, because the TUSD curriculum will inevitably feature classes like “Smuggling 101″ and “How to Overthrow El Diablo Blanco.”
SALLIE WHO CALLED?
UA churned out more than 5,000 grads this spring.
Wait, wait… I got this:
There are so few jobs out there, the unemployment line looks like Hands Across America.
So many college kids are trying to move back in with their parents, Home Depot started selling moats.
College kids are about to be so broke, they’re gonna have to sell their ironic tattoos.
But seriously, Class of 2012, congratulations. And good luck…
No, sorry. I’m not hiring right now. But I’ll keep you on file.
BROTHER, CAN YOU SPARE AN UMBRELLA?
Well, we have a state budget.
What we don’t have is money for our parks, or for KidsCare, or the rest of our hippie nonsense.
There is plenty of dough in the “rainy day” fund, though. Which I’m sure will be waiting there for us when we actually need it.
