I wonder if the old tradition of hurling rotten tomatoes at bad actors has gone completely out of style and the extent to which his security detail would be able to deflect them if it has not? Of course, as our anonymous cartoonist predicts, he may be simply ignored.
And, yes Edith, the taxpayers will be continuing to pick up the security tab during his farewell self-promotion tour that is intended to stir up enthusiasm and financial contributions to America Next. What fools we mortals be. Well, maybe not all of us. We all know what Honest Abe said about how often you can fool how many people. Too bad they don’t make ’em like him anymore. Or Jefferson. Or Franklin. Or a lot of other true statesmen of our past.
Oh, and by the way, just pack your crap and leave a certified check with our state treasurer to reimburse the state for every fund you robbed, a prorated refund amount for every day you did not work for Louisiana, and be sure to include any funds in your war chest since most of don’t think there is a snowball’s chance in hell that you can ever run again for office and win. Leave this state that you have certainly not respected. As a matter of fact, leave our country. No one wants you. No one!
