Another “Duh” and a Yawn

Posted by ALmod on May 24, 2007

Okay, I’m sick of resolutions.  They’re a waste of time.  Every single one of them.  They just don’t do anything, and if you’re getting paid 62% more this session, I’d better be seeing something a bit more impressive than resolutions in the Alabama House and the twiddling of thumbs in the Alabama Senate.

That being said, I did find this highly amusing.  As everyone knows by now, Brett Blackledge of The Birmingham News recently won a Pulitzer Prize for his investigative reporting on the Alabama two-year college system.  Now with all the commendations and condolences that flow through the state legislative branch, they refuse to pass a resolution praising Blackledge for his achievement.  Gee, I wonder why.  Next, you’ll be hearing about how Karl Rove didn’t personally deliver a gift basket to Joe Wilson.  Oh, the outrage!

Of course, The Birmingham News seems to have it’s panties in a wad over this apparent blasphemy.

    Resolutions may be pointless, but generally they pass after zero debate. They usually ram through about 10 at a time and it takes all of 30 seconds.
