This was on NBC:
“From the moment Mitt Romney stepped off stage Tuesday night, having just delivered a brief concession speech he wrote only that evening, the massive infrastructure surrounding his campaign quickly began to disassemble itself.
Aides taking cabs home late that night got rude awakenings when they found the credit cards linked to the campaign no longer worked.”
No trickle up…guess that falls in line with trickle down. Obama spent most of the night praising and supporting his campaign workers.

Looks like I may be doing more walking. If the car comes in with a closer to $1500.00 or lower, we may be able to add it to a credit card (not something I really wan to do), but if it comes in closer to $2000.00 or more then we probably don’t have enough credit line on that card to do it. In that case, the car might as well be sold for parts.
Brown’s is still a ways away from coming up with a final quote, and I have to start getting ready for the theater tonite… I have to go earlier than I would have in order to catch a ride with Laura Bakin. John will likely bring me home tonite (he’ll have to pick me up for the radio show tomorrow as well.)
So in the middle of all of this the kitchen phone rings and it’s some Cancer fund raising money, and this sweet sounding Bimbo asks for ME with a tone in her voice like she KNOWS me (except she calls me “William” and you know right there that this is someone playing with an address book.) I unpleasantly hang up on her, and turn to do the dishes. Then I can take a shower and get changed for Full Circle Theater. If I can keep busy I’ll stop thinking about everything else.
UPDATE 5:13 PM
Still haven’t heard from Brown’s. I’m waiting for Laura to pick me up. The dogs had their afternoon walk and I watered the garden, so I’ve done my immediate housework. I’m not thrilled about working the light booth tonite. Just to cheer myself up, I put the blog into a new template… hope you like it.
Sky is getting gray and it feels like a storm is coming.
This from The Daily Caller:
Just weeks after Florida GOP Executive Director Delmar Johnson was canned for spending party money on high-class steaks and planes, the Miami Herald reports that Senate candidate Marco Rubio did much the same thing, using a GOP-issued credit card to fix his family minivan, snag booze, pay a property management group, and buy “supplies” from a “a music equipment store.” Rubio defended his actions in a statement: “There was no formal process provided by the Party regarding personal charges.” While the party may not have been clear then, it sure as hell is now, with Florida GOP spokeswoman Katie Gordon telling the Miami Herald, “The RPOF American Express card is a corporate card and is meant to be used for business expenses.”
Gee… and his goal is to be on the Senate payroll… do they give him an Amex card?
