Say What? – Part Dos

Three weeks ago, Gov. Jim Gibbons put out a press release lambasting Rep. Shelley Berkley (D-Nevada) for criticizing Gibbons for his objections to taking some of the stimulus money for unemployment with all the federal strings attached.

“What is truly foolish is Berkley’s cavalier attitude that Nevada should bow down to the federal government and give up its own state sovereignty in a mad grab to claim every last penny of stimulus dollars,” Gibbons said in the release. “I will not sell out our State’s sovereignty.”

Which now ranks right up there with “The check’s in the mail,” “I did not have sex with that woman,” “No thanks, I don’t want any more cocaine,” and “I promise to oppose and veto any and all efforts to increase taxes.”

Why? Because on Wednesday the governor’s press office released this statement:

“Governor Jim Gibbons today announced he will accept all unemployment funds available to Nevada in the Stimulus Package.”

Somebody, please make it stop.
