“How about this wacky U.S. senator from Rhode Island blaming the devastating tornadoes in Oklahoma on Republicans? It’s just unbelievable that Americans around this country elect people like this into office. We got one in this state, in O’Malley, we got one in the White House like Obama.

See, that’s what they want us to do, they want us to do their job for them. I’m wondering who you contact to file a formal complaint.”
“I would like to know when the city is going to cut the grass at the corner of Kenly Avenue and Wilson Boulevard. This grass is terrible. Somebody’s gonna get hurt or get killed, pulling out of there to come on Wilson Boulevard.”
