Up and at 'em and in 2008 that means up and "online." And the word on WGDR out of Plainfield is here comes da' snow. Yes, indeed. Despite all the global-warming talk, we're about to set the record for snowiest February on record.
Click over to WDEV and catch Eric Michaels getting the Statehouse story out of a sleepy-sounding Kristin Carlson. Kristin's a one-woman capital bureau for Ch. 3 (remember Tim Lewis?) and she was the fill-in anchorwoman on the Six O'Clock last night. Busy gal.
So, let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!
The presidential primary heats up in the Green Mountains. Got an automated "Vote for Hillary Clinton" call last night from none other than former Governor/Ambassador Madeleine Kunin. Then I got one from a live person, a male, calling from an Obama for President office on North Street who wanted to urge me to vote for Obama.
Last week, Queen Madeleine and House Speaker Gaye Symington and Rep. Kathy Keenan did a Hillary for President conference call.
This morning the Obama Campaign is hosting a conference-call presser with three women for Barack.
And yes, Progressive Anthony Pollina does exist!
In fact, Tony the Prog's holding a Statehouse presser today at 12:30 in the Cedar Creek Room. This arrived a little after 5 o'clock on Monday. Unfortunately, we can't make it:Pollina to hold press conference on Douglas' budget and promisesto take the Governor to task for false promises and increasing cost ofliving for Vermonters, especially low-income families. "Jim Douglashas built a reputation on keeping taxes low, but his budget increasesfees for poor families while giving tax cuts to those on top. Plus,he's decreasing services badly needed by Vermont families," saidPollina.
