Usually I'm not so blunt, but Jim Calhoun is an asshole. So much in fact, that he doesn't even deserve a clever twist of phrase or humorous subtlety to expound on the notion.
Ken Krayeske, the "reporter" asking the question to Calhoun was definitely asking a question that was a little inappropriate at the venue. We have come to expect little propriety from Krayeske at this point though, have we not? Regardless of the timing, Calhoun's reaction is disgraceful, ignorant and shows us the tender pink parts of him we have all come to know and love.
There are state employees making a sliver of his massive $1.6 million salary who are taking unpaid furlough days because of the budget deficit, and the arrogance with which he dispatched the suggestion of his giving anything back in this time of crisis is vulgar.
Calhoun is a terrific liberal Democrat who certainly can't part with one thin dime of his money seeing as he donates so much of it to Democratic candidates.
I would like to close the deficit with his $1.6 million salary,and we could fill the rest of the gap with his massive unweildy and unattractive head.
