Dr. J. would like to start off thanking The Czar for watering the plants and letting the fell beasts out for their daily constitutionals at the Castle over the 5 day weekend so that Dr. J. and the other Gormogons could enjoy our Thanksgiving Day feasts…as you may have picked up from the twitter feeds, Dr. J. returned to his ancestral home for the weekend for much revelry with Mama J. and Clan J. Even Mrs. Dr. J.’s parents made the trek from New York to Philly to partake in the festivities on Saturday.
This report caught Dr. J.’s eye on teh Facebook this morning. It looks like Barney Frank (D-Mass) will be retiring from congress this year. Given how safe his district is, this may simply be that Mr. Frank has decided to hang it up at the ripe old age of 71. But, Dr. J. suspects that his recent controversial policies regarding banking (Frank-Dodd), Obama’s unpopularity, Scott Brown running for reelection against a Communist lunatic, and a likely Romney (former Guv-RINO-Mass) nomination may have snowballed into some sort of cutting of losses for Mr. Frank and the DCCC.
Post Script: Redistricting yielding the addition of some ‘bitter clingers’ to his district may have contributed as well…
