Rinos and Possums

Have you seen the Geico TV commercial with the guy who got his kids a possum for a pet instead of a puppy? Cracks me up every time.

The wife of one of my opponents can’t seem to make up her mind about whether he’s the candidate or she is. However, she posted a particularly helpful article today about RINOs. “Republicans in Name Only.”

The central theme of the article is that voters should make their choices based on, “the voting record.” Unfortunately for her, of the three candidates for mayor only two of us have voting records. You can guess who does not.

Self-inflicted irony is the best kind.

The rest of the article loses my attention with the premise that it isn’t acceptable to even have friends who are Democrats. The aforementioned candidate posted a comment not long ago that appeared to be contrary to that notion, in which he asked, “Does Mayor Jim Lane represent all the people, or just those who donate and vote for him?”

I guess we know who won’t be represented if you vote for this guy (the other challenger): Democrats, Independents, and Republicans who are friends with either…basically over half of Scottsdale’s voters.

Would a possum be a better animal to consider? Here’s an article about Possum Republicans that might bring some perspective to this discussion.

Just so you don’t think I’m prejudiced against RINOs, I found a fun rhino video for you.

And here’s a quote that just fell into my lap that may or may not be relevant:

We swallow with one gulp the lie that flatters us, and drink drop by drop the truth which is bitter to us.

Denis Diderot
