Pam's Fun Poems....Recap The Last Two Weeks Of Session

We are in special session to raise taxes. Here are my comments:

#5) Senate Majority Leader Lisa Brown (D-Spokane) is upset with Attorney General Rob McKenna (R) for going after Obama's federal health care mandate that trashes our 10th Amendment states rights.
Stomp your feet,
Slam your hands,
Nothin' gonna stop McKenna's plans!

#4) Vulnerable this year...there are several incumbent Senate Democrats who can not yet raise reelection money due to special session restrictions. But, their Republican challengers can.
Twiddle your thumbs,
Moan in hums,
Taxpayers wait to throw out the _____!

#3) Tim Eyman charges on with I-1053 aimed at reinstating the voter approved 2/3 majority vote requirement for tax increases that tax hiking Democrats just over-turned. (I am a co-sponsor of Eyman's new initiative.)
You can run,
You can hide,
Its a long told tale,
Raise our taxes and
You're out on a rail!

#2) In their inability to get their act together, ruling Democrats cause much more waste in government. The cost of session is one thing, but delaying cost savings (assuming there are some) wastes even more. D's have had months to figure this out!
We don't like haste,
We don't like waste,
The longer it takes says "cut and paste!"

And the Number One Special Session Fact is... drum roll please.....

#1) Randy Dorn (D), State Superintendent of Public Instruction, boys and girls...was caught drunk driving in front of an Orting school. He was coming home from a "community event." Attention math students. If the legal limit is .08 and your superintendent was driving at much was he over the limit? And, for special credit: Should he stay in office? (Hint: If he joins Supreme Court Justice Bobbi Bridge, and legislators Jack Cairnes, _______, __________ and ______ isn't it just OK to drive drunk " 'cause everyone else is doing it?" (The later is a values clarification question aimed at helping us all understand situational ethics.)
See Randy drive.
Randy can drive.
He drinks beer and can't really steer.
Can Randy stop in time?
Will Randy hit a child of mine?
I do not know Pam I am.
Will he pay a fine?
I do not know Pam I am.
Will he spend some time?
Will parents be blind?
Will voters be kind?
I do not know Pam I am.
But this we know for sure.
He probably has found no cure.
No matter Pam I am.
The papers will pass.
He will say mass.
The judge will defer.
His colleagues concur,
So Randy can drive.
See Randy drive.

SEATTLE - Washington State's Superintendent of Public Instruction is headed to jail. Randy Dorn pleaded guilty to a DUI charge and is expected to report to jail Monday.

Dorn was arrested early on March 21 while driving home from a crab feed and dance in Bonney Lake in rural Pierce County, where he says he drank some beer. The Washington State Patrol says Dorn's blood-alcohol content was 0.11 percent. The legal limit for driving in Washington is 0.08.

Dorn pleaded guilty in Orting Municipal Court Friday. Sentenced to 365 days in jail, the judge suspended all but one of those days. Right now it looks like he'll spend Monday night in jail, will have an interlock device installed on his car, and spend the next five years on probation.

Dorn says he will not resign from his position as superintendent.
