So you made it to Thursday –Congrats! Just one more day and you’ve made it to the weekend!
The “Thursday Numbers” column is where I take a look at the numbers in the news and provide some commentary with them.
Pssst…You can also use this information to amaze and dazzle your friends, family, and co-workers.
Today I take a look at counting in Iowa, Keystone and Keith Stone, unemployment, Dolly, Newt and Marianne, Tester and Bain, Biden and the Giants, a contested senate GOP primary, the final four of football, and much more – so read on! Be sure to share with your friends and family!
According to GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, $373,327.62 is “not very much.” He earned that for speaking.
Romney is out of touch with the common person. I think Romney is filthy rich and he’s ashamed to show that his wealth was mostly inherited…
That’s how many new claims for unemployment were filed last week, a “decrease of 50,000 from the previous week’s revised figure of 402,000.”
That’s how many views on YouTube the first campaign ad from Barack Obama has received (as of this morning). It was uploaded yesterday. Watch it HERE.
That’s how many jobs supporters say are lost because the President did not approve the Keystone XL Pipeline. But CBS News has some other figures…
Please don’t confuse the “Keystone pipeline” with “Keith Stone” – the Keystone beer man…
According to The Hill, Montana’s junior Senator, Jon Tester, “received a $2,500 contribution from Joshua Beckenstein, a managing director at Bain Capital, in June of last year, according to a fundraising report.”
Didn’t I hear somewhere that Tester was ranked number one in receiving lobbyist cash…
That’s about how many people attended a fundraiser in San Francisco where Vice President Joe Biden said, “the Giants are on their way to the Super Bowl.”
For you non-sports fans, the Giants play football in New York, the 49ers in San Francisco. The San Francisco Giants are a Major League Baseball team.
I still like Joe Biden…
According to this story, that’s how many hamsters a man kept in his apartment.
94 hamsters in an apartment…
That’s how old Dolly Parton is today – Happy Birthday! My favorite Dolly Parton song HERE.
According to the Associated Press, “Rick Santorum edged front-runner Mitt Romney by 34 votes in a surprise flip to the final tally of the Iowa caucuses, but no winner will be declared because some votes remain missing…”
I lived in Iowa several years ago and I’ve had problems counting since then…
According to The Weather Channel, yesterday’s low in Great Falls, Montana (Zip 59401), was minus 20. The high was minus 13.
It was so cold when the cows were milked it came out as ice cream…and politicians had their hands in their own pockets…
I’ll be here all week….
That’s how long Republican Presidential candidate, Newt Gingrich, was married to his second wife, Marianne. ABC News has done an interview with her that is set to air sometime soon.
I actually met Marianne Gingrich several years ago and she was a very nice person…I asked her how she survived being on the island with Gilligan all those years…
Hey guys…check out The NFL’s 10 Best Cheerleading Squads 2012 HERE.
You can thank me later…
That’s how many NFL teams are left! NY Giants versus San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens versus the New England Patriots.
As of this morning, there are two people running in the Republican primary for U.S. Senate; Denny Rehberg and Dennis Teske.
A contested primary means more money to spend…more staff to be hired…
