    I don’t want him, you can have him, he’s too fat for me.

    With apologies to Ross MacLean and Arthur Richardson, the composers of the “Too Fat Polka”

    Oh, please! TAI has repeatedly reported that public pensions are a Ponsi scheme. Given the advance of the stock market, just what is the significance of a 4% reduction in NJ’s pension plan contribution? Zip. The search for sticks with which to beat Christie is becoming almost as ludicrous as that to explain away the absence of global warming.

      I think Groucho would be more appropriate to this pathetic straw-grasp.
