Knoxville mayoral candidates Mark "Where's the Plan, Man" Padgett and "Battling" Madeline "Mad Dog" Rogero have now officially raised enough money to pay off the national debt.
Unfortunately, the two - who have raised somewhere in the vicinity of $80 trillion - are going to use it to make you all suffer through more silly, mundane, whatever television advertisements. At least until next Tuesday.
And then it's over. God, I hope. Maybe the loser will spend his/her remaining coin to track down the person who sent out the hate mail letter. Didn't Padgett say somewhere he wanted to team up and find the person(s) responsible?
(I'd go look out on the golf course. Heh.)
Anyhoo, rambling here. Don't care. (And yeah, I made up that crap about $80 trillion. It's more like $2 billion.)
Rogero raised $123,260 for the month of October. Padgett raised $95,295.
(By the way, do not read anything into this post as to who I think, care or want to win based on whether I put Rogero's name first or Padgett's. I heard some jack-leg the other day talking about how reporters do that. I'm voting for myself. Or Michael Grider.)
