Wow, This just in: According to Strib writer Eric Roper only millionaires or fully employed candidates should run for office in CD2...how pathetically unnewsworthy is that especially when Congressman Kline has such a rich history of voting corporate interests while feeding at the special interest tough.
OMG, what's next a job fair with no jobs to be had? Deciding to balance the US deficit on kid's school lunches instead of war profiteers? Give me a break, no wonder newspapers are failing and dying when they shrill meaningless crap instead real news!
Earth to Roper, a lot of Americans are unemployed, it's not a sin, a sign of weakness, or a criminal act! Our economy is suffering, there's five people for every one job opening! Maybe your story would have been significant if you pointed our Congressman Kline brought us to this point by eight years of voting his far right ideology including voting for bank bail out but against finance reform. Now that is a story based on facts that affect us all.
