He Only Plays One On TV

Pat Crowley is correct: Bruce Lunsford's janitor for the day act epitomizes the "silly season."

WAVE 3 showed Bruce waxing the floors at Butler High School, as he researches what it's like to be a working stiff. And unlike his mentor -- the real janitor -- Bruce had a wireless mike transmitter sticking out the back of his pants.

We may never know how many times Bruce stopped waxing to answer his phone; his buddy Chuck Schumer might have called to tell him to pull any money from IndyMac before Schumer's bank run caused the Feds to close the place.

Bruce's stint as a janitor fell at roughly the same time that he wrote a million dollar check to himself for his campaign. This, of course, is not the first time that Bruce has engaged in that ritual of financial narcissism. In his last two failed attempts to get elected, Bruce gave his campaigns $14 million.

Given the repetive nature of Bruce's cash injections to his campaigns, he must have developed some sort of ritual to commemorate the event. After all, writing a one million dollar check to your own campaign isn't exactly like paying the phone bill.

Does Bruce use a special pen for the signing ceremony? Or did he borrow one from the real janitor?
