An Open Letter From New Mexico to Governor Bill Richardson

Given the gravity of the economic situation the nation state of New Mexico is facing, I could not in good conscience ask the President-elect Lieutenant Governor and his her Administration to delay for one day the important work that needs to be done.--Bill Richardson, 1.4.09 *fixed version*
So are we right, Big Bill, in understanding that New Mexico is political chopped liver, only resorted to when the filet mignon of Washington is taken off the menu? Well, if you're quitting that job before you even start, why don't you just do us all a favor and quit the job you were pretending to do in the first place?

Get out of the way, Bill. Let Diane Denish get started now. If you want, you can go sit in the Obama Transition Team Waiting Room until the Blagojevich/Richardson parallels are forgotten and things cool down. We don't care.

Just leave. Now.

Big Bill, you might not understand this, but you're kinda making New Mexico look bad, saying you're not clean enough for a job with the sparkly, shiny Obama Administration while you have no problems continuing to foul the filth down here in piddly 'ol NM, where political corruption is, in your mind, not only accepted but expected.

We were all ready to keep quiet, stifle our urge to laugh at Washington/Obama for taking your tired act off our hands, and now this happens. Thanks a lot. Thanks for nothing.

Just leave. Now.

Diane Denish for Governor: Now. Not January, 2011. Now.

Great post Gov Richardson needs to be a real man once in his life and step down as Gov of NM. He skipped the draft for Vietnam so now is time to do the right thing.

Nicely put. I especially like the part about how Richardson says he's not good enough or clean enough to be in the Obama administration, but he's plenty fit to remain as King of the Cesspool here. Brilliant!
