Send in the Clowns: Fanner and Signer Work the Room at Mass Gov Blizzard Presser

More and more watching these government creatures strut their stilted stuff yields only bitter laughter. Here's the classic example of buffoons on parade has His High Blomeness Gov. Deval Patrick of Massachusetts blathers along framed by an obese fanner and a butch signer. This buffo comedy works best if you drop the sound and watch the craploa spew in the silence.

Too bad SNL doesn't do comedy anymore.

We watched this in disbelief. Who is the fanner?!? When Patrick stepped away from the podium, the Fanner seemed to speak sharply to him, telling him where to stand or something, so my theory is that she is his mom.

Is it possible that the signer is scamming everybody, and just making it up as she goes along? Something seems very unusual about her.
