Why, surprise, surprise! They're just where I mentioned they are: in Bend. And better yet, while I noted that the First Squeeze had been spotted walking her dog there, the Oregonian came up with something even better: the Green Goddess who "works for the Earth" drove an SUV to a landfill:
The former governor and Hayes showed up at the Knott Landfill southeast of Bend in a pickup and an SUV about 2 p.m. last Friday and spent a few minutes dumping trash, according to Timm Schimke, the director of the Deschutes County Solid Waste Department.
As it happened, there was a glitch processing the credit card that the former first couple offered for payment -- one that locked up the entire system and required a supervisor to reset.
At that point, workers recognized who they were dealing with and apparently decided the dumping might be of interest to law enforcement.
Deputies did spend some time sifting through the first couple's cast offs. Schimke doesn't know what, if anything, they took away from their rubbish reconnaissance.
Oh, that's sweet: the "green" governor and his First Squeeze drive an SUV and a pickup truck to a landfill, dump their stuff, and their credit card has a "glitch"! Probably tried to use a state credit card.
"I don't work for the governor, I work for the Earth!" Gosh, you'd have thought that Retread and his First Squeeze might have tried recycling, rather than driving two carbon-emitting large vehicles to a landfill and dumping stuff. Apparently, that whole "green" ethic only applies to the little people.
Retread's going to be bankrupt before he knows what hit him, and his First Squeeze probably already has ads on Craigslist.
