With the start of the new year comes the new year’s resolutions. We all have goals to lose weight, quit smoking, be better people, or in my case finish that novel that’s been sitting in my laptop for three years. I’m not sure what resolutions some of my favorite politicos in Indiana made for the year, but I can speculate …
Mitch Daniels - Fix the schools, keep the state afloat, job creation and keep the crazies in my party down to a small roar.
Brian Bosma – See Mitch’s resolution.
David Long – See Mitch’s resolution.
Pat Bauer – Pick a nice day to walk out and bring the House to a halt.
Vi Simpson – See Bauer, but make sure you do it on a day where there are only 33 Republicans in the Senate.
Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard – Get to 50.1.
Melina Kennedy, Jose Evans, Ron Gibson – Get to 34, and then get to 50.1.
Council Democrats and Republicans – Get to 15.
Libertarians - Get to 1.
Mike Pence -Get to 4750 North Meridian.
Dick Lugar – Get back to 306 Hart Senate Office Building.
Lugar Potential Challenger – Get some name ID an organization and a few million bucks and then try to get to 306 Hart Senate Office Building.
Tony Bennett – Learn the words to “Happy Days are Here Again”
Indiana Teachers Unions – Learn the words to ‘Tied to the Whipping Post”
Indiana Republicans – Don’t forget, this is as about as good as it will get.
Indiana Democrats -Don’t forget, this will be as about as bad as it will get.
Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry – Get some red paint to put a giant target on David Bisard.
Public Safety Director Frank Straub & FOP President Bill Owensby -Keep talking to each other.
Marion County Democratic Chair Ed Treacy – Watch what you say about people of color, you never know what might show up on a blog.
Marion County Republican Chair Kyle Walker – Make sure lots of people are watching when you talk to and about people of color so it can show up on a blog.
Abdul – Keep stirring the pot because you’re too old to smoke it!
