This morning we were were talking about Mike Baumgartner, hes a local a U.S. Senate candidate hoping to beat Democratic Sen. Maria Cantwell this fall,this guy cracks me up! He was interviewed by a local blogger, Josh Feit (the blog is called Publicola), and Josh brought us a big story these days… Todd Akin and ridiculous comments that Akin made about rape and abortion. Well, Baumgartner apparently didn’t want to talk about that (he did say that Akin’s views are "ignorant" and "offensive"), but he would rather talk about how he wished the media would focus on the war in Afghanistan . later that night after the interview…Feit got an email from Baumgartner that included a picture…the email stated: "Josh, this is Pat Feeks, a Navy SEAL killed last week in Afghanistan. Take a good look and then go F*** yourself." Go “EFF Yourself” – wow…this guy is great! What makes it even better is that when he was intervied about what he wrote to Feit…Baumgartner said that his only regret about all of this was that he failed to stop his staff from later issuing an apology on his behalf. This guy seriously needs to embrace this attitude. I say screw it…his campaign should be this:
VOTE FOR BAUMGARTNER…OR…GO EFF YOURSELF.
He could get all WWE Attitude Era on Cantwell…post flyers around town that say “Hey maria…Mike Baumgartner has 2 words for you…SUCK IT!” OK, maybe I’m going a little too far….we got a text about all of this after I shared my campaign ideas…
Thanks guys! My 3 yr old daughter is now in the backseat yelling "suck it!!"
I texted back to tell the texter I was sorry about that, but the resonse I got was awesome:
No biggie she also yells " wack it!" On wednesdays ;)
Back in 1993, Erica Arsenault of Massachusetts got married to a man named Scott Wolferseder. They got divorced eight years ago after 11 years of marriage, and have two sons together. They didn't publicize why they divorced, they would only say that Erica left Scott. Well . . . last summer, Scott's mother, 73-year-old Dorothy, had kidney failure. Scott's sister posted on Facebook that she was taking Dorothy for dialysis. And Erica saw the post. That's when she decided to apologize for divorcing Scott in a big way . . . by DONATING A KIDNEY to Dorothy. Scott says Erica told him she wanted to give a kidney to his mother, "Because of the hurt she caused not only myself and our boys but the hurt she caused my mom. And this was her way to make it right." The surgery took place July 10th. The transplant took, and Dorothy is doing great.
Based on this, what elaborate thing have you or someone you know done as a way to apologize to someone? Here are some of the texts we received:

An appliance company in the UK recently asked people to pick the top ten status symbols they want in their home, and according to the survey, the ultimate status symbol for your home is . . . a hot tub.
1. Hot tub.
2. Walk-in closet: This was the top choice for WOMEN.
3. Side-by-side refrigerator-freezer. (--They're not common in the U.K., where the study was done. And they call them 'U.S.-style fridges’)
4. A stereo system with speakers in every room: That was top choice for MEN.
5. 3-D television.
6. Sound-activated blinds and lights.
7. Restaurant-style range stove.
8. Fancy coffee maker.
9. Temperature-controlled wine cellar.
10. Gas grill.
A new study says that the ultimate status symbol for your home is . . . a hot tub…what is something you own that you consider YOUR ultimate status symbol? Or what is something that you wished you owned for your home? Here are the texts we got:
