Come on, do we even need a young Sheriff much less one that's almost 100? What does a competent Sheriff really do anyway? What is this, the OK Corral? Seriously, Polhemus is pobably knockin down 150k plus a monster pension. (Not available on Data Universe because he's voted in!!) What could he possibly do on his busiest, most productive day?? Imagine documenting this guys day at work on an hourly basis? Wake up, milk and cookies, nap, somebody props him up, drives him past the "Sheriif's office" DUH....then back home for a nap! In a real job, Polhemus is a leaker. A profit drain! A liability. How could he hold anyone accountable with a straight face!! The poor guy doesn't even know he's milked this thing 30 years too long. What a damm shame! Give a young guy a shot at this dumb needless job!

polhemus cannot even get to the polls to vote for himself ! he needs assistance to cast his ballot - i'm betting he doesn't even vote this year or someone else filled out a mail in ballot for him !

What do you mean on his most productive day? He is proud of the boom boom he let's ride in his depends on a good. Come on now.

You got that right. They showed him the polls. It showed Bartlett, Little and Polhemus so far ahead that he can do nothing, and still win big. Take that to the bank. You are in very Red Ocean County in a Presidential election.

A statewide newspaper revealed he collected a million bucks on his pension -- so far. Why doesn't the gov. comment on this double-dipper old gipper?
