According to Sunday's Sarasota Herald-Tribune, Rep. Vern Buchanan, R-Longboat Key, told a crowd of about 300 people at a town hall meeting in Parrish on Sat. morning, "I don't have a lot of confidence in the government. I'm there, I see it every day."
Ummmm, Vern; since you have been duly elected to the House of Representatives by your peers on Longboat Key and the people who wanted to keep their warranty in effect on the new cars that they bought from your Ford dealership, YOU ARE THE GOVERNMENT!!!
But, you're right. We don't have a lot of confidence in the government, either. Or in you, for that matter.
Maybe, even because of you.
Know whut I mean, Vern?
