The only way to get my legislators to reply to me...

is to be a Heisman award winning college quarterback. But since that's not likely to happen, I guess I'm just screwed.

The mullet wrapper reports "Tebowmania grips Tallahassee"

Apparently President Bernie Mac escorted Mr. Tebow to this grand event. Good thing there was nothing important going down that day :(

The purpose of the event was to award Tebow a Congressional "resolution" and the "medallion of excellence" which is Florida's highest honor to a civilian, for his work off the field. He is only the third Floridian to ever receive this honor. He's 20 years old, has a strong faith, good family values and has worked helping others, including as a missionary in the Philippines. Hey I think that's great, but there are a lot of people of all ages in this state who do great things to help make the world a better place, every day.

The difference?

They're not celebrities.

This just reinforces what we already know---that our legislators still have better things to do than tend to the real pressing issues facing Florida citizens. Our elected officials would rather spend their valuable time (paid for by you and me) meeting celebrities and throwing passes in the halls of the Florida Congress than reply to our letters, emails and phone calls about what they plan to do about the current economic crisis in this state, and then actually do something about it!

I say to my elected officials--if you're going to waste your time and my money like this, just pack your shit and get out.
