Who's Carl This Time?
Carl: "I can't imagine all the millions of dollars that Colgate-Palmolive are going to reap from this. The dumpsters in Phoenix were filled with shampoo and toothpaste."
That was a man named Ray Watson, one of thousands of people who had to part with their bathroom kits now that new rules apply to what?
Carl: "For the sake of our state, our country and my party, I cannot, I will not let this result stand."
That statement came from a modern-day patriot, who this week proved that nothing -- not poor poll numbers, not scorn from his party, not LOSING THE DAMN PRIMARY -- could stop him from running for Senate. Who?
Hint: The Joementum has come to a complete haltů
Carl: "It was a political calculation that his advisers persuaded him that he needed to do, and I think he knew it. I don't think he is resentful or angry or anything; I think he is resigned to it."
That was an unnamed source talking about whose selfless decision to cut his annual August vacation down to a paltry 10 days?
