Pins and Needles

Tucson, Arizona. Last night I attended the Republican Cigar event, and now that I've learned the next one is at my smoking location, I might be at the next one as well. At the event, I enjoyed a terrific conversation with Frank Antoneri, candidate for Arizona House LD30. I also had a chat with Vic Williams, AZ LD26 House candidate, and several others. Vic wears the limited edition gold Tim Bee pin. Regrettably, I did not take a camera to collect a photo of the gold Bee pin, but I got to see it. Very nice. I speculate it is the nicest pin ever produced by someone exploring a run for office.

Last Friday the Sonoran Alliance shared that Karl Rove would be visiting Tucson to speak and raise funds at an event on January 23. The announcement provoked a rather spicy thread, your humble blogger contributing some of the spice. The idea that the precise location would be announced struck me as a little odd. Will they really publish for all to see whose Tucson home Karl Rove is going to be inside on the evening of January 23?

Attendance of the event runs $10,000 per person. They expect fifteen to twenty to attend. I'm guessing Jim Click's home, but what do I know? The event will generate close to $200,000 to be used for Arizona GOP candidates, I believe mostly in the Congressional races (Federal), not local contests. Perhaps Karl will unveil the latest breakthrough in the tactical use of lies and deception to manipulate the voters.

I wonder what the next breakthrough in "If you knew X raped four month old puppies, watched kiddie porn, and had an alcoholic wife who worked in a brothel, would you still vote for him?" looks like.

Count on Karl to show us the way. Surely there is a lower rung of political depravity possible.

Just wait...the next sleazy political stunt will be pulled by the Clintons going after Obama.

You got that right, TR. I've read a lot on that very subject this past week.

You are a winner on that one...and some of it backfired and has offended some black leaders in the Democrat party.

DemocratiIC, Roger. I don't "accidentally" call your party the Fascist Party.
