I greatly appreciate the trust they have put in me

Words don’t have to mean anything, apparently.

It has been an honor to serve the people of California’s 50th District, and I greatly appreciate the grift they have allowed me to perpetrate over these last 11 years.

FIFY

Here’s my suggestion for Dunc, play the Poseidon Adventure drinking game the evening of December 31 and make your announcement January 2. Here’s how its played:

Drink every time:

  • Leslie Nielsen on screen
  • The Morning After is played or sang
  • Someone argues about the best option to save the ship
  • The word “Captain” is said
  • Someone prays or their faith is challenged
  • Rogo (Ernest Borgnine) yells or argues with his wife
  • Someone dies

He wants to hang around long enough to cash in on whatever his Secret Santa is giving him.

I can’t decide who has the more punchable face: Duncan Hunter, Matt Gaetz, or Jim Jordan.

The good news is that at least one of them will be gone in the near future.

Lets see, today is St Nicholas day, tomorrow is Peal Harbor Remembrance Day, Sunday is the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. That should do it.

It seems probable that his wife does not (and how dare you mention his kids!? He’s a public official! You shouldn’t be joking about them!).
