Book Signing this Friday

If you want to encounter more white trash than at Tops on the first of the month, I suggest you check out the book signing taking place this Friday at the Dog Ear's Bookstore. A Who's Who of public sector leaches will be gathering (and no doubt telling each other how important their lives are) in honor of Jack O'Donnell's new book, Bitten by a Minnow. His first book, How I Nearly Blew Tim Kennedy's 2012 Election, is still available in paperback. A real page turner, this book chronicled how O'Donnell and Kennedy outspent their opponent nearly 400 to 1 and still managed to win by a sparse margin of 159 votes.

The first 50 people in attendance at the book signing this week will receive a free bottle of Five Hour Energy, in an effort to keep them awake throughout this pseudo-intellectual Borefest. I observed the guest list for this pompous gala (some 194 names) and could count the number of private sector employees on one hand. The young O'Donnell will be joined by City Comptroller Mark Schroeder and the soon-to-be-departing State Senator, Kennedy. After the event, Timmy will sit on Jack's lap, as 3rd grade students from the Discovery School read  Dr. Seuss' The Cat in the Hat to them. 

After looking at the guest list, I can tell you this: The real families of this community, whom I encounter every week. The ones who work real jobs and struggle to make ends meet, will not be anywhere near this incredible waste of time. They could care less about career politicians Kennedy and O'Donnell, or anything these two have been bitten by.
