Mail Call - Nov. 12

November 11, 2012

“Congratulations to the newly elected mayor and the several new city council members, especially Mr. Aleshire, after what happened to him the other year. Now we can have some true people who have their feet on the ground, and maybe work with the couple there, and get the city moving like it should be instead of looking like doomsday, and this field of dreams. Use your heads. The taxpayers have spoke loud. Let’s get together.”
— Leitersburg

“Now that the election is over, I am reminded of the sad, sick, morally decadent society in which we live. Liberalism is now king, Sodom and Gomorrah has returned, and gambling and pot smoking are our favorite pastimes.”
— Funkstown

“The American people and the United States of America won on election day. God bless our president, Barack Obama.”
— Sharpsburg

“I was reading the obituaries yesterday on Nov. 6, and I saw a very dear friend of mine in it. Her name was the United States of America.”
— North End

“Now that the election’s over, my heart goes out to President Obama because he’s really going to have a mess on his hands. Yes, Mr. President, the mess that you created. Can’t blame George Bush this time around, buddy. You did an outstanding job selling the American people another bill of goods, and from here on out, the next four years I believe is going to be a real big nightmare.”
— Hagerstown

“To all of those who voted to put Penny Nigh back on the city council: Unless she’s changed since the years since she last served on the council, you all deserve what you’re going to get.”
— Hagerstown

“After hearing the presidential results, I am reminded of the old saying, ‘Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.’”
— Clear Spring

“Well, Mr. Parrott, maybe now you can put your clipboard and your notepads away, since every petition you started went down yesterday and go down to Annapolis and start doing the job we pay you for. ... So let’s go down there and start doing the job we pay you for. Enough of the foolishness.”
— Hagerstown

“Fred Thompson was my first pick as Republican candidate 2 1/2 years ago when it all started. I think Fred would have had a better chance.”
— Hagerstown

“As a taxpayer, and someone who is fairly well-versed in politics, I am going to really miss Congressman Bartlett. This man did not care if you were a member of the rich and the elite, or just an everyday Joe Blow citizen. He would look into your problems, his staff was excellent to deal with, and this man came out and mingled with the people. He didn’t sit himself up on a pedestal. Plus, Congressman Bartlett was not only smart, he was intelligent. There’s a big difference between being smart, and intelligence, and he was both. Good luck in your retirement, sir. I will miss you.”
— Hagerstown
