I used to visit this site --W-B Political Scene-- quite a bit, simply because when first it was anonymously launched, it was pretty much devoted to bashing me. Post after post after post consisted of Markie bashing and little else. And I used to get a big kick out of it.
Needless to say, it was lame. Imagine that. A blog about another blog. Make any sense?
Anyway, I was checking out some of these long-forgotten electronic locales that are still listed at NEPA Blogs.blogspot.com, and I found this pearl, this brilliant piece of insightful political punditry.

Doug Richards and His Wife are a Powerhouse In Luzerne County Politics!
Many people are commenting on the new powerhouse, Human Resources Director at the Luzerne County Courthouse, Doug Richards. It is clear that Doug is on the ascent at the Luzerne County Courthouse and the sky is the limit as to his ambitions and potential. One thing for sure Doug Richards knows what he is talking about and the Luzerne County Commissioners recognize Doug as a definite asset.
While Doug is busy making things happen at the Luzerne County Courthouse his wife is an equally powerful force at the Luzerne County Community College. Taking the Community College by storm Doug Richard's wife is a dynamic personality who is without a doubt helpful to the college administration including President Tom Leary.
Look for this power couple to be around for a long time do excellent work to assist the Luzerne County Commissioners as well as the administration and President of the Luzerne County Community College, Tom Leary.

Geez. Was that embarrassing, or what? Open prehensile mouth, insert engorged...
From The Hazleton Standard Speaker:
WILKES-BARRE - Luzerne County commissioners on Wednesday officially approved last week's decision to fire Doug Richards as director of human resources.
The vote was 3-0. Richards stopped working for the county Nov. 18 after refusing to talk to Commissioner Chairwoman Maryanne Petrilla about his intention to resign Dec. 4 and his role with a personnel contract being investigated by federal authorities.
County solicitor Vito DeLuca has determined that Richards generated a contract on his work computer in 2007 to make it look like it came from Continental Consultants Group Inc., a company from New York City paid $807,770 by the county in 2007 and 2008. On April 30, 2007, Richards directed county Work Investment Development Agency Director Richard Ammon to sign Continental contract, which was never approved by county commissioners and is being investigated by federal authorities.
What an effing clueless jackass, man! A real non-brainiac.
Perhaps Colonel Klink (he/she/it) should have stuck with the Markie bashing routine from the relative safety of anonymity. Putz.
Fantasy Football update
I finished 8-5 after winning 6 of my last 7 games. Oh, and I missed out on the wild card spot thanks to a tiebreaker. No playoffs for this dull boy.
Still and all, it’s a ton of fun.
With that behind me, I should be posting here more often. So, I’m thinking that Colonel Klink should get back to basics since I’ll be giving him plenty to criticize from here on out. Putz.
Hey, I know you Obama supporters are probably unwilling to admit to your giant mistake. But let’s be honest, shall we?
Aren’t Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi just about the biggest assholes to ever have been put in charge of anything more grandiose than a Little League refreshment stand? These two are both mentally incontinent, name-calling goons.
Now, admit it.
Peace is still going hot-and-heavy with the genealogy bit. And the latest tidbit she unearthed is that my grandfather did the film work on a 1944 movie titled “Home in Indiana,” which was nominated for Academy awards for both best color, and best cinematography.
Needless to say, I’ll be looking to purchase a copy of that movie, like, soon.
I found this post at Political Rants to be an interesting insiders look at the recent comments from Carolee Medico-Olenginski that bad-mouthed the suddenly resurgent GOP in this county.
Can you bite the hand that doesn’t feed you?
