Viewpoints: Bredesen signs off

Monday, February 1, 2010 at 11:45pm

From Gov. Phil Bredesen's eighth and final State of the State speech [Feb. 1, 2010]:

This is likely my final time to address you as Governor. We still have a lot of work to do, and it’s far too early for farewell remarks.

I do want to say, however, a most sincere thank you for the way you have treated me and worked with me and my administration these past years. I have never had a job I enjoyed as much or gave me as much satisfaction as serving as Governor. It has been a humbling experience.

To those of you who have helped me, my sincere thanks. For those of you who have not, all is forgiven now! I know how much so many of you care for our state and its people, and it has been an honor to work with you on their behalf. Thank you and Godspeed.

Capt. I'm so sorry for you that you think you are stupid. That's not good for your self esteem.

I don't think I know everything, but I do know something. I'm not stupid. I'm sorry you feel that you are stupid. Get some help for that captain.

Nazix2: All the same, that link exceeds my computer's memory. For puppets, I watch "Mr. Hand" on South Park.

She must have gotten this one from chief's hand book for weak comebacks.

That look like chief's fuzzy hand puppet, Blanket. lol

Again, diagnosing without a license. And no authority. I'm not actually "crying" when I read your posts. I"m LMAO, cause you don't have a clue. And it is not normal to call someone you don't even know "stupid" so I must presume you are referring to your own self-image.

By: dargent7 on 2/2/10 at 11:34

"You're it".

By: dargent7 on 2/2/10 at 11:35

I think we've sunk to a new low (if that's genetically possible) when this board looks like the screenplay to a "Pee Wee Herman" movie.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 2/2/10 at 11:36

oh geez, did i let my license expire again? i hate it when that happens.

you're still a big dodo head.

sid is now channeling for chief. This is one of his old post.

"You're It" -- a song written by Esther Jayne.

By: DustyU on 2/2/10 at 11:37

d7 - stop insulting peewee - he never got this low :(

By: Captain Nemo on 2/2/10 at 11:41

Both sid and chief are into verbal S&M. Both have the same weak comebacks. Both are into the dodo head talk. lol

By: DustyU on 2/2/10 at 11:42

Where's George Michael when you need him?

By: DustyU on 2/2/10 at 11:43

capt - I like the real thing myself - visited SoHo a lot while I was stationed in England :)

By: gdiafante on 2/2/10 at 11:47

"American Idiot"

Songwriters Billie Joe Armstrong, Michael Pritchard and Frank Wright (Green Day)

Methinks the song is about a poster that rhymes with Midney Flames.

By: dargent7 on 2/2/10 at 11:50

gdia: Lady Gaga just had her 5th #1 hit off of "Fame". Doesn't that match The Beatles off of "Meet the Beatles"?

By: Funditto on 2/2/10 at 11:54

sid - you've called me nit wit on a number of occasions. Do you know me?

By: gdiafante on 2/2/10 at 11:57

Darge, the Beatles had the top five spots at the same time at one point, that'll never be done again.

Not sure how many total number ones they had on that album but they determine it differently now, so you can't really compare.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/2/10 at 11:58

Midney Flames rhymes with Silly Dames

Yes, Capt. you are correct. And everyone else here is such a gen-yus!

Funditto, I apologize for calling you a nitwit. no I don't know you.

See ya, DustyU. I think you're a nice person. Capt, I don't even know Chief, so it's not logical to compare us.

Gonna go to the grocery store and compain about no beer being there now.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/2/10 at 12:02

Silly comeback.

By: Captain Nemo on 2/2/10 at 12:06

By: DustyU on 2/2/10 at 12:06
