Billy's new BFF -- Chula and Little Bear have been replaced

The SN-L has a story (New class takes on Capitol) this morning on Congressman-Elect "Call me Billy" Long and his first day in the capital as a congressman-elect (he'd been there a lot of times prior to this week for fundraisers, etc) and his first time ever, he says, to set foot on the capitol.

Remember when Congressman-elect Long --excuse me, I mean, Billy said, ""I’m not gonna let Obama, Pelosi and Reid cram things down my throat. I do.

I find it humorous that one of the two submitted photos chosen for this story is a photo of Billy with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.

Billy also said, "I don't run to a microphone everytime one's offered, I don't jump in front of a camera everytime one's offered."

Hah! Billy was all over the airwaves yesterday. He even gave an interview to NPR! NPR, that bastion of liberalism!

Didn't take him long to forget about fed up, did it?

NPR, Pelosi, next thing you know he'll be telling us that there's a lot of good things in Obamacare.

Oh wait, he already did that.

Ah jeez, it's going to be a long two years.

Here's a link to the Washington Post profile of Billy Long.

You remember the story from the Washington Post, where the reporter described Billy as a "smack-talking auctioneer", donch ya?

Billy took umbrage with that statement, saying, "I'm not a 'smack-talker,' I'm more of a colloquial talker. I've got a lot of Ozark sayings. I use a lot of Billyisms, as I call them. But I'm sure not a smack-talker."

"Billyisms"? "As I call them"?

Try this one, hell, I'll give it to you, I stole it from Vance Randolph who stole it from a real Ozarkian gentleman from Pineville back in the 1930s: "Don't piss on my leg and tell me it's raining, Billy."

Speaker Pelosi should have taken the opportunity to bitch slap Bozo for the way he has run down her reputation during the campaign.
