  1. You have GOT to be kidding. What the heck does Ms. Lowden know about medicine or health care? I mean, besides being able to trade a chicken for it?

  2. Bawk! Bawk! Baaaawk!!!

    Made me lol.
    Maybe Gym DOES have a sense of humor!

  3. This is why I laugh when people talk about Brian Sandoval as being "better than Gibbons." That's the lowest threshold imaginable, isn't it? And Sandoval and his pep squad shouldn't take that as a compliment.

  4. And for her first official act as a member of the medical board, Ms. Lowden, will specifiy the number and kind of chickens required as payment for most medical procedures performed in the State of Nevada. I'm told a coronary bypass is expected to require 2500 chickens. This is unreal, I thought we had in bad down here in Arizona with Jan Brewer, but this Gibbons character has set a new low with this selection.

  5. Former beauty queen. Former news reader. Current mouthpiece for a company that wants the taxpayers to pay them to build a stadium.

    Medicine? Nope. But she's blonde and cute and in his age range! That does it for Jimbo!

  6. As I posted when Jimbo fired the NDOW director...

    Look for more "Last Hoorahs" !

    What's next ?

  7. Gov Gibbons should fire the top 3 bunglers at Nevadas "NO Mine Safety and Training Section". . .or send them for horse riding lessons. . .
