Senator Fred Girod adds comic relief to tense Session

As State Representative, Fred Girod, made people laugh with his humorous floor speeches and rural wisdom. Now that Girod is a new State Senator the charm continues, especially when it comes to mis-pronouncing his name. Yesterday during Senate Floor Session consideration of SB 1067, Sen.Girod addressed President Courtney as “President Cootney”, after the President pronounced his name as “Garod”.

Girod also commented that it was only fitting during this emergency session that the legislature discuss emergency issue like light bulbs. He went on to say” This issue spawns the question, how many legislators does it take to change a light bulb? Apparently 90!”

    Wow this is the closest to the truth anybody has come in regards to politicians so for this year. Some are funny and some are not but the fact is that they are all clowns!

      It may be a circus, but that does not make everyone a clown. The fact that the Republicos are out of power make them spectators, and the budget as the bearded fat lady.

    Sadly, the ill-adivsed “emergency” session is not that funny and neither are the silly, vapid participants.

    I fail to see any humor when it comes to these 90 geniuses, ILLEGALLY convening to change a light bulb, especially when only takes 1 Italian, me, to change one.

    What next—Elvis Day?

    This is sad-really sad……

    The lightbulb bill helps shine the light on the unemergency they are having.

    You know Girod and others are just shaking their heads.
