Ashamed Elmer Does Not Think Kay Granger Knows What Is Right About America

Yesterday, or was it the day before, Elsie Hotpepper emailed me with the email being a bad scan of the cover of a book along with text which only said "ha ha ha".

Upon closer perusal of the book cover I saw it was a book written by Fort Worth's notorious congresswoman, Kay Granger, mother of the even more notorious, J.D. Granger, he being the mastermind who has mucked up Fort Worth's Trinity River Central City Uptown Panther Island District Vision to the point it is now known as America's Biggest Boondoggle, with construction of three simple bridges being built over dry land to connect the Fort Worth mainland to an imaginary island, stuck for over a year.

And yet J.D. has not yet been fired and his mother was recently re-elected in the Trump mudslide.

The book Kay Granger wrote, which Elsie Hotpepper had a ha ha over, is titled What's Right About America: Celebrating Our Nation's Values. With a foreward by that well known expert on all things American, Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York.

I figured this must be a timely book, published recently. Turns out this book was published over a decade ago.

Googling Kay Granger's book soon brought me to Amazon, which as you can see via the screen cap above, currently has one copy for sale for $6.14.

Amazon had five or six Customer Reviews of Kay Granger's book. All but one of the reviews sounded alike, as if written by the same propaganda spewer. However, one of the customer reviews, from someone calling himself Ashamed Elmer, seemed real. That is the one real review you see screen capped below.
The above is a bit difficult to read, so I'll copy what Ashamed Elmer had to say about Kay Granger's book...

I live in Mrs. Granger's district, and I am ashamed that she has taken the time to produce this book, instead of spending her time doing good for those of us back here in Texas. There is not a single new idea in this book, which is entirely worthless. And I'm a veteran and a Republican.

I really think Ashamed Elmer is being totally unfair about what Kay Granger has done to, I mean, for those of us back in Texas. Kay Granger has been instrumental in funding that aforementioned un-needed flood control and economic development scheme which has become America's Biggest Boondoggle.

Being part of such is quite an accomplishment.

And one has to admire Kay Granger's  motherly attributes. Securing for her unqualified son a job which will give him financial security into his retirement. And all she had to do was secure a half billion dollars, give or take a buck or two, of federal pork barrel money...
