Kwame Kilpatrick Relocates To Texas!

Today’s news was all about getting your free grand slam breakfast from Denny’s!  I totally did not get any free breakfast,  the lines at two different Denny’s were so long I opted to go somewhere else and just pay for my breakfast!

So now the Ex-Mayor is right here in good old Texas!  He, his wife and their sons appear to be anxious to start a new life and leave the past behind them.

    Exactly…what else does he do? What is his degree in? I hope it isn’t law…he doesn’t seem to be good at that…

    If Texas pulls out of the union, I hope they keep Kwame there with them.

    He really is a piece of work!
