THE DEMOCRATS: UNFIT FOR COMMAND

So you see the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth were right. This apparently is what the Democrats mean when they say they “Support the Troops.” This loser is in Washington today with Maria Cantwell whose opponent Mike! McGavick has pulled into a dead heat with her. Gee, do you suppose any of the mainstream media will ask John Kerry in Seattle today about his comments? Me neither.

“You know education [sic]… If you make the most of it, study hard, you do your homework and if you make an effort to be smart, you do well. If you don’t you get stuck in Iraq.”

No on 17% increase in Library Levy. Last time they said they’d extend hours with the levy. They cut hours and gave the libararian a 20+% increase. You’ve GOT to be kidding me.

Governor Saxton always tells the stories from throughout the state where locals ask him when he gets elected if he’ll ever come back because Kulongoski never has. Now apparently Ted is going back with one week left in the election. Note: the date on the picture.

Help Name the Two Tram Cars *Plus a Special "Ask Victoria"


They’ve been claimed from customs and are on their way to floating like ‘bubbles’ over the freeway, highway, homes of those poor schmucks on Lair Hill. Yes, the two tram cars are here at a cost of a half a mil each. And the people in charge–either OHSU, City of Portland, Homer Williams, PDC—we have no idea–want you to help name them. So I’m taking your suggestions. I’ll go first.

(this name already exists to pay disrepect to outgoing OHSU head Peter Kohler for this ill conceived idea, but we’re looking for names of both cars and I thought we could reprise this for purposes of this contest).

Keep the ideas rolling in !

Dear Victoria,
If the tram holds 78 people, are they going to replace the buses that seat 40 but can squeeze 60-80? Will it be a “frequent service” line, running every 15 minutes or less? Will it run when the buses can’t make it up and down the hill in the snow and ice?
Just pondering,
Gerry
Beaverton
Dear Gentle Listener,
The Tram will result in fewer buses running to pill hill to ensure that at least someone will ride the tram besides the doctors, nurses, staff etc who work at OHSU.
There will be plenty of buses around during frosty, windy days because the tram, in all liklihood, will not be able to operate.
Thank you for asking.
Victoria
PS This is just another reason why we call it the “Tram Scam”
