Carnie Priest Has Truck Named in Honor

The City Fire Department's rescue truck was recently named after Monsignor Robert McCarthy. The honor happened on May 11 and continues a tradition dating back to 1847 when village fire apparatus was named.

     Other pieces of equipment currently named include trucks named after Homer Perkins, Emma Flower Taylor and the late firefighter William Nolan.

You are liable to get some slack from some Obama voters. Unless you rename it after a Muslim.

They like to quote the Constitution's separation of church and state clause. The clause that is not in the Constitution but caused an audience of dolts to laugh when Christine O'Donnell pointed that fact out.

Oh yes, Christine O'Donnell. That vixen put a spell on me.

Christine who? Oh, you mean the Republican who actually had to buy TV time to tell voters she wasn't a witch. She should have told them she wasn't a dolt, either.

True, the words "separation of church and state" aren't in the Constitution, but the legal principle has been around for over 150 years. It's inherent in the Establishment Clause of the 1st Amendment.

Naming a fire a truck after a man who worked for the largest organized ring of child molesters in the world is really something to be proud of.

And you thought I was exaggerating when I said you would get some slack from the Obama voters.

I wonder if the schmart Obama voters ever second guess themselves? They have no money, they are all fat and out of shape, their relationships are all on the fritz...divorced, fighting with the family, etcetera. And they are one O.D. away from succumbing to their recurring depression. Yet they fancy themselves to be smart.
