I Don't Want You Now

Or ever, for that matter. You'll be pleased to know that Greg Macpherson's got the endorsement of Governor Kulongoski and former Governor Barbara Roberts. Big whoop. With friends like those, Greg doesn't need any enemies. Since there is no love lost between Governor ("I won't take benefits from retiree's accounts) Kulongoski and PERS members/retirees, and Barbara Roberts, through no particular fault of her own, managed to scare the state into passing Measure 5 by announcing how many people would die as a result of passing this measure. I'm afraid she cried wolf too many times and the voters were simply not swayed. As a result, we got Measure 5, and it took more than 10 years for the disaster to strike. By that time, nobody connected the doom with passage of that "little" measure back in 1990. In any case, I'm hoping that their endorsement of Greg Macpherson will help him with the kiss of political death. Gone from public life, at least for the near term, perhaps forever.
