Newburyport, A Possible Political Consultant

Someone gave me this delightful creature in the anticipation that one day our local political journal could say something not so nice about me and I would need some comforting.

Well, that was very sweet, but the creature is a frog, not a toad.

The creature’s name is George.


In fact he claims that his name is George Cushing and that he is from Frog Pond at the Bartlett Mall in Newburyport, MA. Well, quite frankly I don’t think he’s telling the truth, a) he’s too flashy and b) he appears to have way too much attitude for a New England Yankee frog.

Quite frankly I think George, if that’s even his real first name, wants us all to think he’s a native, but I don’t think that’s going to work.

However, he does have the makings of a first rate political consultant for the Newburyport Political Blog. Those beady, insightful and skeptical eyes, they work for me

George spent last night reading the entire blog from start to finish. (Very industrious of George – good sign.) And his response to a lot of the stuff was “oy vey.”

Oy Vey

See what I mean about not being a New England Yankee frog. “Oy vey, came much too naturally to George.

George Cushing was also quite incensed by some of the goings on, although in the big picture, I don’t things are that bad.

Now I debated long and hard on whether or not to put this picture of George being incensed on the Newburyport Political Blog, wondering if it indeed violated the blog’s guidelines. However, George Cushing, already taking on the role of local political consultant, felt that the picture, although possibly somewhat offensive, did not in fact violate the blog’s guidelines.

And finally, George at times wanted to just cover his eyes about things that are going on in our small New England city.

But I’m afraid that George is just going to have to sit up and take a look at what’s going on just like the rest of us.

It remains to be seen after his foray into blogdom, just how often George Cushing from Frog Pond at the Bartlett Mall will actually makes an appearance on the Newburyport Political Blog.
