What’s Wrong With This Picture?
“Patriots by 21,” Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass. said would be the spread for the Super Bowl game between the undefeated New England team and the New York Giants today.
Kennedy, who was in Albuquerque to show his support for fellow Senator and Democratic Presidential hopeful, Barack Obama, was answering a question, for his prediction of the game’s outcome, posed by Journal Columnist and Host of the local PBS station, KNME’s “The Line,” Gene Grant, right.
So what’s wrong with this picture?
Will Rogers said, “There's no trick to being a humorist when you have the whole government working for you. “
Kennedy, 75, who has been in congress since 1962, paused and said, “38-6.”
Eureka! Now I know what’s wrong with the federal budget.
If Kennedy can’t do the math for a simple silly game, it might explain the inflated numbers deficit mess.
It would seem that none of the Washington crowd cares how the numbers add up.
Skepticism aside, enjoy the games, the one in Glendale, Arizona and the one on the road to Washington.
