Day Three: Herald held hostage by hack

Still no word in the Little Picture Paper about the plight of its former Statehouse reporter turned Romney hatchet man Eric Fehrnstrom.

OK, there was an AP story on the website, but no staff-written story about the Herald's favorite subject -- pension patriots. Howie did take a few shots at hunters, but nothing about his old pal Eric feeding at the public trough.

In the meantime, Frank Phillips delivered what hopefully will be the last word on the subject -- Fehrnstrom resigning from the board he never sat on. Now's he got to find another way to earn his last two years. Maybe Billy Bulger can lend him some time?

But Eric's got important things to do this day after Turkey Day. Mitt will be grandstanding yet again on gay marriage by asking the SJC to force the question onto the 2008 ballot. One problem -- the legislative session is not over and legally they can still vote on Jan.2. As the Herald notes, that effectively kills the measure. But not legally. There's no case here for the Wanderin' Utahn.

Check back next year -- when you're not governor.

I wrote a spoof on Bush Revokes Pardon -- starting with Romney's expected grandstanding on the gay marriage issue -- his complaint that Flyer and Fryer had a same-sex marriage on the flight to Disney Land. see http://breakfastwithbwana.blogspot.com

So many turkeys, so little time! Well done (of course that being the only way to avoid salmonella!)
