    Geez, Ken, I feel bad Nearly 12 hours after the post and not a single Udall has commented. I’d change my name, but I don’t think I’m in the right state.

  • ifthethunderdontgetya”

    You’d all be sorry if Finkorina should get the new Cali CEO spot!

    (Hopefully subjunctive, maybe)

  • user-of-owls

    [re=608177]user-of-owls[/re]: Um, yeah, ok. When I made that comment, this post was way down among the morning batch and I could swear that the time stamp was 11:41 AM.

    So, either I’m dipping my toes into Lake Dementia or Ken, the Udalls and the Federal Reserve are plotting against me.

    Woah, slow down there Barbara…There’s a “New” Mexico?

  • obfuscator

    [re=608200]user-of-owls[/re]: yeah, that happened to me, too.

    So, is it fundrooting or grassraising?

  • mumblyjoe

    [re=608200]user-of-owls[/re]: In your defense, now it looks like you commented on this post, from the past. o.O

    Today, we are all going insane. Or possibly time-travellers. Or both.

  • slappypaddy

    baffling and inadequately baffled, there shall be no quarter given to the roots of the grasses.

  • dijetlo

    Has anybody else noticed that the clan of Udalli has apparently taken over a large swath of the western United States like some later day, redneck Habsberg dynasty?

  • JackDempsey

    Horticulturally speaking, the Udalls look more like woody vines, rather than grasses, to me.
    But I defer to Senator Boxer’s extensive botanical experience.

  • Mahousu

    To be fair to Barbara, I checked out Whatisname’s signature and I couldn’t make it out either. Mutt? Maud?

    Whatever. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some checks to forge – er, sign.

  • actor212

    I didn’t realize “Senator” was a hereditary title!

  • weejee

    [re=608218]gurukalehuru[/re]: One of our key supporters of Mo’s ’76 Prez campaign in Illinois used to sing that tune.
