Hal Rogers’ Staffers Bring The Unintended Humor

March 6th, 2013 · No Comments

You need a moment of laughter on a dreary day, right?

Here’s Hal Rogers’ latest in the Harlan Daily Enterprise:

March means two things in southern and eastern Kentucky: March Madness in the Big Blue Nation #BBN and time to gear up for the annual PRIDE Spring Cleanup with 30,000 of our closest friends.

Coach Cal joined me and Cynthia for the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C. a few weeks ago. We, of course, said a prayer for the Wildcats and Coach Cal surprised me with a piece of the basketball court from the 2012 NCAA National Championship, Kentucky’s 8th victory. Go Cats!

Unfortunately, due to the President’s sequestration experiment, many important government agencies, particularly the Department of Defense (DoD), are facing serious and damaging budget cuts. While the House voted twice to replace these across-the board cuts with targeted spending reductions, the Democrat-controlled Senate declined to act on these bills.

It’s beyond hilarious that Rogers’ staffers (he clearly did not write the piece) decided it would make sense to use Twitter hashtags in a small town newspaper.

And you’re wondering why Eastern Kentucky can’t have nice things.
