A great model for all law enforcement officers. Also, interesting how McNenery could make time in his busy schedule for this publicity, but didn't have time over recess to host a townhall and listen to his constituents.

Our thanks to officer Campbell. Yet Jeb, always campaigning for McNerney uses 'headline grabber"of "" McNerneyxxxxxxxxx"", leading reader to think McNerney was KEY to the article, which of course, he was not. But that is THE most valuable form of 'campaigning' any candidate can be given, and the author doesn't even have to "report" it to the Feds.
Of course since McNerney just votes as Pelosi tells him, there is little to report on his contribution to our district. Mostly, it's 'using' the paper's photo ops of 'motherhood & apple pie' pics with our school kids, or the always good veteran stories.

Cynthia and Susie,
Excellent points! Al...wake up.

If the PW charged customers for their editions, they'd have a difficult time breaking even because very few conservatives would pay to read this extremely biased paper. It might as well be funded by Obama's PR and Communication Dept.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
