Our congressman, you know, the one who refused to push for Congress to stay in session until benefits to the long-term unemployed were restored, nevertheless found the time to send out this e-mail, presumably from the comforts of his home, which I received at 5:21 pm on New Year’s Eve:
Over the past year, I’ve had the privilege of talking with thousands of Delawareans as I’ve traveled up and down the state. I’ve heard their stories of success, hard work, disappointment, frustration, and hope. I watched Delawareans in uniform go off to war, while their families waited steadfastly for them to return.
I don’t let a day go by without realizing how lucky I am to represent these individuals – and the rest of my fellow Delawareans. It’s a great privilege that comes with the responsibility to do what’s right for the country.
This past year was certainly a challenging one in Congress. In this new year, I hope my colleagues and I can come together to address the very serious challenges facing the country and to give the American people the government they deserve.
For my part, I’m entering this new year with feelings of hope and determination. I pray that you and your families are blessed with good health and happiness in 2014.
Happy New Year,
P.S. 2014 also brings with it an election year. Please help me continue serving the people of Delaware by donating to my campaign here.

That’s right. What would New Year’s Eve be like without Carney the Craven trying to separate you from a few more bucks before the Witching Hour? None of those bucks, by the way, designated to go to those losing their unemployment benefits. As their benefits expire, thanks in part due to the inaction of Carney and his ilk, Carney needs your dollars to continue living in the style to which he has become accustomed.
Now, go back and read what he wrote. There is literally nothing of substance there. The guy has totally given up even the pretense of caring about anything but his own ill-deserved political future.
Memo to everybody: He does not serve ‘the people of Delaware’, and contributing to his substance-free, but cash-rich, campaign will do nothing to change that.
So, let’s start off 2014 with what we really need: the most suitable nickname we can stick onto this empty suit. I’ll throw out the first three possibilities:
1. Carney the Craven
2. Concord Coalition Carney
3. (In honor of the time-dishonored tradition of ripping off the rubes at the local carnival) Carny.
