Topinka's All-You-Can-Eat Election Buffet

NEWS ITEM: Republican gubernatorial candidate Judy Baar Topinka promises to release her education plan soon, but she offered few specifics about it Monday other than to pledge it will be funded.
Or, as the Tribune put it, "Topinka offered ... what she called an 'hors d'oeuvres' version of her plans for increased spending on education and public works projects but offered no taste of how much it would cost taxpayers."

Judy Baar says, Welcome to our campaign!
First, we have these Quick, Easy and Fast Election Appetizers:
  • Zesty Ethics Bites: "I want to show the voters that elected leaders can be honest and committed to serving the public - not friends, fundraisers and insiders."
  • Bacon and Cream Cheese Stuffed Jobs: "We will create a more jobs-friendly atmosphere."
  • Tiny Taco Health Care Meatballs: "I support extending health care protection to people who cannot afford it or who cannot obtain it, but these programs must be run efficiently."
  • Spinach and Mushroom Funding Pinwheels: "I would not expand programs without knowing true costs and having a reliable funding plan."
  • Nuts and Bolts Party Mix: "It takes time. It takes hard work. It takes leadership. And you know what else? In order to make it happen, you have to show up."
  • Sweet Pickled Questions: "I don't have all the answers."
Cost to you: One vote and faith that it'll all work out.
