Northeast Times

Editorial: Gee, thanks!

Thursday’s the big day, of course. Time to sit down with your loved ones, re­flect on the good things in your life and then feast on the big bird.

Most people have more to be thank­ful for than they real­ize. Here at the Times, this is the time of year that we like to get in­to the minds of some of the movers and shakers, fam­ous and in­fam­ous, and pre­dict their grat­it­ude on Thanks­giv­ing Day.

Here are a few of their likely thoughts:

• Pres­id­ent Obama: I thank God Elec­tion Day won’t take place for an­oth­er year. If the eco­nomy doesn’t get much bet­ter by then, my goose will be cooked.

• Rick Perry: Thank God for cue cards.

• Michele Bach­mann: Thank God Rick Perry makes me look in­tel­li­gent.

• Her­man Cain: Thank heav­en for little girls.

• An­thony Bevilac­qua: I thank God for al­low­ing me to get old and too feeble to testi­fy in per­son at the per­ver­ted-priest tri­al.

• May­or Mi­chael Nut­ter: I thank the polit­ic­al gods that the Re­pub­lic­ans nev­er have a pray­er of win­ning the may­or’s race. 

• City Coun­cil­man-elect Dav­id Oh: Thank God for ab­sent­ee and pro­vi­sion­al bal­lots.

• City Coun­cil­wo­man Joan Kra­jew­ski: I am so thank­ful to re­tire four years after I re­tired.

• Sandy Stew­art: I thank the voters for not send­ing me to City Coun­cil; heck, I didn’t even want the job in the first place.

• Andy Re­id: Thank God I’m gonna get kicked out of the Eagles’ nest pretty soon. I need some rest.

• Chris Christie: Thank God Weight Watch­ers will help me look healthy enough to run for pres­id­ent in 2016. ••
