Give Me a Break

Apparently, being the winner's "Pander of the Week" in back-to-back weeks has only encouraged the little press-seeker.

This is just pathetic and if the Gannett Wisconsin papers in the Fox Valley run with this, then they really are rooting for the little jerk.

(APPLETON) Tensions are high on Capitol Hill - and it has nothing to do with politics.

Monday’s Packers game against the Broncos is pitting roommate against roommate, imperiling domestic tranquility for Green Bay’s Congressional representative.

Congressman Steve Kagen, M.D. shares his Washington rental with Congressman Ed Perlmutter – the representative from suburban Denver, and a devoted Broncos fan.

The two have a gentleman’s wager riding on the outcome of Sunday’s game.

“When the Packers win, my esteemed colleague from Colorado, the Honorable Ed Perlmutter, will deliver a case of Coors beer. In the unlikely event the Broncos prevail, he will receive a case of Miller. My staff is looking forward to enjoying the Coors,” Congressman Kagen said.
I'm gonna take a guess here and say the amount of Americans and 8th Congressional District constituents helped by this news is a big fat zero. Because, I don't think it's the type of Miller-Coors joint venture news they've been looking for.

Makes you wonder if we'll get pictures too. Or a press conference to boot? That'd be fun, also show the folks back home that "Steve Kagen's working for get beer for a bunch of underpaid Congressional staffers in their 20s and 30s."

UPDATE: The Appleton Post-Crescent bit on the news, or at least an AP writer did since they don't give a byline. You can read the online article here and please check out the message board beneath the article. My favorite thread is the Appleton-based moonbat who wants Kagen to dump the Coors beer in the toilet because the Coors family helped provide the seed money that helped start the Heritage Foundation, is "anti-labor," and had the audacity to help fund anti-communist freedom fighters (That would be the "Contras" to you and me.) in Nicaragua.

These are Steve Kagen's people folks!

Geez, I'd hate to think what this person would do if they found out the Miller family provided tons of cash for social conservative and Roman Catholic causes before they sold the brewery to Mister Philip and Mister Morris.
