The Piercing Truth

This is right from the dictionary and seems to describe Albuquerque, Berry and Schultz. Fascism (f ash ,izem) noun An authoritarian right wing system of government and/or social organization.

More Toe Dipping

State Senator Joe Carraro has decided to join the Republicans Janice Arnold-Jones and Mark Boitano in the very shallow end of the First Congressional District pool by forming an exploratory committee. Currently, Sheriff Darren White is the only Republican to take the plunge and announce his candidacy for the seat being vacated by Congresswoman Heather Wilson.

Early polling has Sheriff White well ahead of his toe dipping Republican competition leading the closest (Carraro) by 55 percentage points among Rs. In all fairness, the poll was released by the White campaign; who probably wouldn't have released the poll if the numbers were not heavily in their favor. However, our Eyes tell us that Public Opinion Strategies has a very good reputation and generally manages to hit the mark within a point or so (read the poll here).

Look, the opportunity to run for an open seat doesn't come around very often and we understand why there are so many toe dippers circling the shallow end of the pool. Our problem is that we understand that Arnold-Jones is circulating both her state house petition and a U.S. House petition, and Carraro certainly isn't mentioning that he'll be giving up his state senate seat to run for Congress.

We don't believe that this is a time for trial balloons or testing the water. Either get in or get out; sink or swim. You can't have it both ways and be taken seriously even if there's a real danger of ending up in over your head.

Representative Arnold-Jones contacted us today to let us know that she has not started circulating petitions for either office (State Rep. or Congress) and that she has only formed an exploratory committee. She writes that once she makes her decision, she will be running for only one of the two seats and for the very reason that we listed above.

When will you reveal information that officials haven't told us about the murder of Kaitlyn Arquette and the reason why it was covered up?

Kaitlyn was deeply involved in an Asian drug gang & was about to turn on her boyfriend, the gang leader & testify against them all. She was killed to keep her quiet.

I encourage Senator Carraro to run for the first congressional district.

This will allow him to lose another important political race and round out his career. He has lost the Lt. Governor primary, the Senate Primary, I believe he has even lost the race to be head of the local neighborhood association president. If he runs, he will lose.

Then he can set his eye on losing the 2010 republican governor primary race.

In the right light, Joe Carraro sort of looks like Bob Swartz. They both have big mouths, no support from the republican party and lose all the elections they choose to contest.
