Please, just give the guy a break

-A A +A
By Ned Cantwell

Some times a guy just needs a break.Like Bill Richardson. The governor from our little old Space Alien State (formerly known as the Land of Enchantment) is trying hard to become president of these United States.He’s out there in Iowa or New Hampshire or Somewhere Other Than New Mexico trying to get a word in edgewise if Hillary would just stop yapping for a minute.A couple years ago your Humble Columnist appointed himself Czar in Charge of Reminding People Bill Is Not Running for President. That did not work out too well for me.So now I am taking on the responsibility of heading up the team in charge of reminding folks the governor is not running for the senate seat being vacated by Pete Domenici.Look, what more do you need? Big Bill has said over and over again he will not run for the Senate. Yet, the rumors persist. It did not help when some political prankster sent out nominating petitions for a U.S. Senate run by Richardson.And it did not help when Albuquerque Journal cartoonist Trevor suggested those petitions have an Iowa postmark.Enough is enough. The man who said he would not run for president is emphatically stating he will not run for the senate. Give him a break!Speaking of our governor, next time he stops by New Mexico to pick up a fresh batch of undies, he needs to look south.To Mexico.To Magdalena de Kino.
