Can't he wait to go fishing on Monday? Get the work done first and then go play! That's what my mom told me.

The man never actually does his job.

He sounds like he could replace our current Glorious Leader without any further training.

He caught two fish, but cost the taxpayers $100,000 for the trip. Go back to work and do something!

Snaged? You mean he caught one by accident? The Gov might not care about fishing at all, but felt he needed to make an apperaence.

You know, he's probably a great beer buddy, but he's a lousy Govenor of Minnesota. He should go to Mississippi where he can help destroy their quality of life, which isn't very good anyway.

Where do you get the idea that it cost 100,000 for the trip? The whole trip is paid for by donations from the business community. Get your facts straight or shut up.

The trip every year is paid for by business people, what's your point? He is not the only one to get the trip.

I don't think it's legal to snag gamefish. I think you legally have to hook them by the mouth.
