Governor’s Office Scrambles to Make Nice

If you can’t beat them, join them. A couple of weeks ago, Governor Richardson is slamming bloggers at a speaking engagement. Next thing you know, his political director is trying to make nice with the bloggers. She goes on and on about how the Governor is just misunderstood.

I couldn’t decide which is the funnier part of the letter. The section that talks about how much the Governor is giving to the state Democratic Party. Or, the re-writing of history [slide down to July 4] to credit Governor Richardson with being the originator of the grassroots movement:

New Mexico is the first state in the country to put grassroots organizers on the ground. The grassroots organizer program was conceived, developed and funded by Governor Richardson and his organization.

Oh, I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. After all, Governor Richardson was a member of the same administration where the Vice-President claimed he created the internet.
