What the hell is in the water today?

Mayor Cory Booker runs headlong into a burning building, and Governor Peter Shumlin nearly gets himself eaten by bears. Are we going to find out that President Obama has secretly taken up wingsuit base jumping?

3. Booker at least had a good excuse.

He was rescuing a neighbor.

Shumlin, on the other hand, was just being stupid, and apparently competing to give Vermont the title of being the first and only state to have it's sitting governor get eaten by wildlife.

13. Booker. Something funny happens in you're head at times like that....

You know dam well you ought not go into a burning building.
You think someone might be trapped inside.
Again. You know dam well you ought not go into a burning building.
Least we had the common sense to feel the door first.

19. As an Alaskan, I will not sit idle while Vermont takes that award.

 

I will see to it that someone lathers Parnell up with bacon grease and drops him in the middle of the McNeil River Bear Viewing area.

Second place is not an option.

8. So have I, and it does.

And the irony is it looks like it would probably be pretty safe, actually, except for the fact that the guys who do it do all kinds of daredevil shit--flying through bridges, grazing outcrops close enough to hit a balloon, etcetera. What, being a human flying squirrel isn't good enough for you guys? Sheesh.

12. No bear-feeding, please.

It's against park rules, even if you use politicians.

14. Actually, that is incorrect. It is those new water meters.

We just got one installed last week, and I've had the strangest urges ever since. I'm very, very worried, and have made several hats from aluminum foil. I understand they're quite protective. :woo-woo:

16. From what I read in that article

Shumlin was being stupid. I don't care if he is a Democrat, it was just stupid. Let the damned bears have the feeders, buy some new ones and, in the future, don't leave them out at night.

Who the hell wants to face 4 bears, in your pajamas, in the middle of the night, just to rescue some bird feeders?

18. If Hillary don't run in 2016

Booker would be a good choice for Prez. And the other guy with the bears was just crazy. Never get in between a mama bear and her babies. Both men are luck to be alive.
