Chewing the cud with Paul Tonko

Tonko with a cow

What, your congressperson hasn't hugged you?

Paul Tonko was in Cobleskill yesterday -- and he took some time out to stop by SUNY Cobleskill for a visit with new Twitter star C. Abunga.

I'm resisting the urge to caption this photo with a "NOM NOM NOM". So freaking adorable!

Politicians have never been so delicious!

I wasn't a huge Tonko fan before, but how could you not like him after seeing that picture.

So much for the informed electorate.

Paul is a huge proponent for innovative energy solutions -- and the lil' Twitter star is good advertising for SUNY Cobleskill's proposed new biowaste-to-energy plant, the first of its' kind in the U.S., according to SUNY: http://www.dailygazette.com/news/2008/oct/17/1017COBY/

What a brave young woman. Despite all of the hardships she has endured her main focus is to educate herself in order to spend her life in service to others as a doctor. How inspiring.
