Political notes from Free Press staff writers Terri Hallenbeck, Sam Hemingway and Nancy Remsen



Sunshine, balloons

Far be it from me to begrudge the sun from shining, but it's a taf hard to see a computer screen with the noon-day glare.

As Pollina's people set up here in front of City Hall in Burlington, the signs say Pollina Governor 08. So do the shirts and the balloons. So if you thought he was going to change races, what's he doing with all this stuff that says governor?

One could say all signs point to him sticking to the race he's in.

Ha! You've been punked, media! But Anthony thanks you for all the free -- issue-less -- coverage!
You can fool some of the media some of the time, but you can always fool the Vermont media.
I'm not sure what's worse, the fact that Pollina's campaign pulled this stunt or that the Vermont media fell for it. Either way, the rest of us lose because energy, affordability, education, the war, the environment and jobs all took a back seat to this nonsense.

Shame on the whole lot -- Pollina and the media.
Here, here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
