Editorial: Thank you
Thanksgiving is the time for togetherness, peace and good will. It’s the perfect time for us to count our blessings.
What might our local and national movers and shakers share with their families and friends as they prepare to dig in to their turkeys on Thursday? Here are our best guesses:
Big Bird: I’m thankful that Mitt Romney lost to Barack Obama.
Barack Obama: I’m thankful that Mitt Romney is Mitt Romney.
Mitt Romney: I’m thankful that Ann and I and our boys have tens of millions of dollars as a consolation prize.
Karl Rove: I’m not thankful for anything.
Hillary Clinton: I’m thankful that I’m getting the heck out of Dodge.
Bill Clinton: I’m thankful that Hillary’s going to keep an eye on me while we plot our return to the White House in four years.
Chris Christie: I’m thankful for all this food.
Andy Reid: I’m thankful that the Eagles’ birdbrains have kept me as coach merely because they love to lose.
Hostess Brands corporate executives: We’re thankful that we got our humongous bonuses before we decided to shut our business.
Michael Nutter: I’m thankful that I made it through another year running a city whose voters love to keep the same party in power, decade after decade after decade.
Any Republican who’s thinking of running for mayor of Philadelphia: I’m thankful to have a day job to fall back on because I know I have no prayer of getting elected mayor.
Al Taubenberger: I’m thankful that after losing races for Congress, mayor, City Council and state representative, I finally realize it’s time to stop running for public office.
