So Republican State Representative Linda Harper-Brown is giving the car back, eh? Well, that’s just fine and dandy. But there are a couple of teeny-weenie little problems.
|Harper-Brown: looks hot in Mercedes|
First, she can’t un-drive the car she’s been driving for a while. All that benefit she already received from driving a free car? She can’t just pop the transmission into reverse and un-drive all those miles.
Second, who’s she giving the car back to? The corporation that owns it? The one that got millions in state contracts from the state agency her legislative committee oversees? Well that’s fine I guess, except she said it was a gift from her husband. Why does her husband get to give her a “gift” he doesn’t own?
Wait. On second thought, I take it back. I want to adopt that logic for my own life, so I’ve decided to give your car to a friend of mine. Yes you, you freeloading blog reader…your car. Don’t complain – I know you’ve been entertaining yourself for years reading my crap for free – your car is a small price to pay. Please deliver your car keys to me at your earliest convenience, and don’t forget to top it off with gas beforehand. Thanks in advance.
Oh, wait – you’re saying that mere mortals such as I can’t do that sort of thing? Well damn – I guess being a entitled Republican state representative really is a pretty swanky deal then, huh?
If you don’t know what the hell I’m talking about, here’s part 1.
