....Five and one quarter, Five and one half ...

There have been many times where I have pondered shutting down this blog. Each time I have asked friends about doing so they have asked me not to do so, "it has merit" is the usual response. I have watched, ney ... allowed ... personal friends to be maligned by bloggers on this site. I know the intricities of the truth, while others presume to know. I find it disappointing that untruths are posted here. It is unfortunately the nature of the beast. My grandfather would tell me time and again ... "it is better to keep your mouth shut and let people think you are stupid than open it and prove it". What a wise man my grandfather was ....

"I want your vote, but first,our community deserves respect". Supposedly Delores Brewer says this in her newest commercial. OK, Delores Brewer, why don't you show our community some respect and end this travesty of a campaign. Your campaing has been an ongoing debacle of smoke screens, innnuendoes and half truths. Please show this community some respect and withdraw!

I am totally out of excuses for Delores the Dumbass. First, she states in her press conference she failed to respond to her "attacks" because she had never run for public office before and didn't understand. Now she is taking something extremely personal and emotional, something that is horrible and degrading to women - RAPE - and comparing Jacques informative ads to that.

Just as she showed she could not handle Bridgett Brown in an open Council Committee meeting, and I do believe still failed to answer the Committee Chair's question, Delores is showing day by day why she cannot handle the job of being Mayor.

When you run for office, you open your entire life and your family's life up for public scrutiny. She failed to understand she was now living in a fish bowl and that everything she has done and her family has done is up for questioning. It is becoming increasingly clear Delores cannot handle the pressure of running for office, how are we to believe she could handle the pressure of holding office?

I cannot add anything to all of the other comments other than to say I am truly aghast that the collective intelligence is thought to be so low as to be so easily manipulated by such a shoddy commercial production that the Brewer campaign has assaulted the good citizens of Alexandria with. I would make the prognostication that such tactics would surely backfire except for the recent developments of the current city council composition remaining intact. I am increasingly coming to the realization that this community is suffering from mass dementia or I am terribly out of touch with reality for I could never believe that Delores Brewer could be elected mayor after the last couple of weeks - sadly, I have to admit I have been wrong in the recent past and could easily be proved wrong again. I always did like Mobile.

Will Jacques Roy be forever known now as "Jacques the Pseudo-Rapist"? Delores Brewer has done an incredible injustice to every woman who has been the victim of a physical or sexual attack. To compare such an event to her opponent's presentation of her ethical weaknesses is beyond belief. Many times I have heard someone say a woman "was just asking to be raped" because of her behavior or manner of dress. Well, in this campaign, Delores Brewer set herself up for all of this. She should issue an immediate apology to all the women of Cenla, she should offer an apology to Mr. Roy for her statements and she should withdraw from the race. Show some dignity, Brewer.

Sunk to new low! said...

Comparing Jacque's utilization of free speech in a political race to the forcible rape of an individual gives us an idea of Delores' concept of government. Tillie Snyder, move over you rookie. Delores now holds a new place in Alexandria's politics. This could be state or national news tomorrow.

Dizzy said...

Before the Brewer ad aired, I was told it was “powerful,” leading me to believe the ad was designed to lend Delores “gravitas” and to target women by addressing violent crime. At the time, I thought it a risky move. Having now seen it, I clearly assumed far too much and am utterly appalled. The ad isn’t a risky move; it is suicide.

The result: We will have a machine-driven, ethically challenged child in the mayor’s office. Yippee. I may have to leave that part of the ballot blank.

biff,
Delores' true friends have tried to get her out of the race in order for her to get a good job and rebuild her life. Anyone who has expressed that opinion has been ousted from her campaign and from her friendship. It is very painful for people who care about her to see her self-destruct in this manner. I fear she'll be unable to get a decent job in Alexandria after this. Meanwhile, the little Repub ladies will move on to the next campaign. The handful of remaining businessmen in her camp will move on to greener pastures. Delores will be left to pick up the pieces of her life, IMHO.

SuzyQ said...

I am appalled that Delores would use such a horrific event in her life as a MARKETING TOOL. Plus, she seemed...mad? Trying to look strong? She really came across as kind of demented...I cannot believe that she let someone talk her into doing that. It was just horrible.

Many friends – those who truly love her - have given the campaign very sound advice, only to have it ignored by those who prefer to chew up the scenery. It was hoped that, after the primary, the slate would be wiped clean and all could begin anew. Those, who tried to redirect the campaign, did so in vain.

As it is, reputations have been sullied, if not destroyed, life-long friendships have been shattered and a lovely, intelligent, well-intentioned woman has been indelibly stained, if not ruined. Hope the powerbrokers in this town are happy.

I have a confession to make – I hear it is good for the soul! I did a “mis-speak” in an earlier post, I posted:

"NO, DB doesn't have a clue. She started this with 20%, threw $200K (40K of which is her own) at it and wound up with 20%...now just how dim does the bulb have to be not to see the handwriting on the wall. Can't wait for the next finance report to see who Albin, et al coned into sinking more $'s into this loosing proposition.

Sad part is DB is not a bad person, just NOT mayor material. She has put all her trust in people who have their own agenda and she just doesn’t get it. It will be interesting to see if any of her “heavy-hitting” supports will employ her after this is done for anything close to the $60K she made as capital project coordinator, the $80K she made as COS or the $90K+ she would have made as mayor. Wonder what they think she’s worth on THEIR payrolls!

I was WRONG, I have recently been informed from someone very close to the
Brewer camp – she did not start this campaign with 20% it was 27%. She spent the 200k to DROP 7 points. But I must give her credit, she definitely has the point dropping strategy down…after the TV ad yesterday, it’s pretty clear it won’t take near that much to plummet to the bottom.

WHEWWWW…I feel like new person – I’ve cleared my conscience and taken responsibility for my “mis-speak”…DB try it, IT FEELS GOOD!

I was completely unaware of DB's newest commercial until I saw it during the 10:00pm news. My mouth fell open, literally, when I saw it. I could not believe what I had just heard. It is the best example of bad taste I have ever seen. What was she thinking? What were those advising her thinking?

To use her rape in such a manner is criminal. It goes past being "dirty politics", it is just plain WRONG! If she has any integrity at all, she will withdraw this horrible piece of crap immediately. She has sunk lower than whale dung.

As for the use of the word "disrespect" as a verb, this too was ludicrous. Had I not still been in shock from the first part of her statement, I would have laughed out loud.

The MAIN intention behind last Thursday's press stunt was to plant the impression that Jacques and Bridgett are in cahoots. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Fletcher, you can leave that dog at home: it won't hunt.

You fools can try and tie Roy to Brigette or to anyone else but with what Delores has done to herself - she has "disrespected" her self she is now reduced to nothing.

Her and her family should slip out of town, at night, and go into hiding. That commercial is the most desperate, say nothing piece of shit I have ever witnessed. How she could do that - how in the hell could she lower herself to the depth?

She stated Roy also unfairly attaced her. This seems to indicate the "rapist" unfairly attacked her. Is there a fair rape? Could someone have fairly attacked and raped her?

Could it be the "rapist" refused to come back the next day when she asked for seconds after determining the quality of the product and, in retaliation, she jailed him?

Anonymous said...

This is the Brewer line on this commercial (reposted from CenLamar):

You people are all out of touch with this campaign.

Jacques Roy attacked Delores and called into question her integrity. When you attack someone with lies and spin (thank Bridgette Brown for Jacques ammo) it's stripping them of what takes many decades to earn.

If you people cannot see the connection then you are delousional and true loyalist to Jacques. Keep in mind that if someone you know was raped physically and then some young kid tells the community that this person is a liar how you would feel. Lying about a person so as to destroy their image is a form of rape. It is rape of their honorable image in the eyes of the public.

Any attempt to parse the Delores rapeogram to try to make some logic or truth of it is futile. It is an emotional appeal without reason.

The rape analogy fails on a number of different levels: the intergrety arguement doesn't work because that described a set of personal principles to which a person subscribes - nobody and take intergrity from another; and rape suggests an unwilling victim - Delores is entirely responsible for her reputation as a liar and a crook. She cultivated that reputation through years of her public life and selfish disservice.

Anonymous said...

A lawyer found to have filed a frivluos lawsuit can be disciplined by the Office of Disciplinary Counsel, and can be ordered to pay the costs and legal fees of the other party by the judge making such a ruling. It is interesting that you say those cases are pending, yet you have already determined that they are frivluos. Guess the doctor who says something is wrong with the plaintiff's is also "frivilous". Or are they as frvilous as Delores' consortium claims against State Farm? Sounds to me like you don't know your head from your ass, or have been successfully sued before for your own neglignece, or both.

Town Talk Article:



Brewer ad says she was Garden District rapist victim and is now being 'unfairly attacked' by Roy

A new television commercial by Alexandria mayoral candidate Delores Brewer implies that she is being victimized by candidate Jacques Roy just as she was victimized by the Garden District rapist years ago.

The ad aired on KALB-TV on Thursday night and again today.

In the ad, Brewer speaks directly into the camera and says:

"Several years ago I was attacked and raped in my home by the Garden District rapist.
I refused to allow it to destroy my integrity.
I helped put the rapist in jail and rebuilt my life.

"In the first primary, I was also unfairly attacked by my opponent, Jacques Roy, but his untruthful attacks only make me fight harder and stand stronger.
Jacques Roy has disrespected our community.
I want your vote. But first, our community deserves respect."

Roy declined to comment about the ad when contacted by The Town Talk.

Brewer has not yet been reached for comment, but The Town Talk is trying to reach her.

Roy and Brewer finished first and second, respectively, in the Sept. 30 mayoral primary that featured seven candidates. They square off in a Nov. 7 runoff election.

Right after the primary election, both candidates pledged not to engage in negative political campaigning.

3:02:36, you do understand the Roy campaign neither forced her to repeatedly lie or caused her unfortunate rape. It seems to be that she would benefit from handling both these things the same: just pretend the rape didn't happen. That's how she is handling the lie.

Rape - My Webster's has several definitions I'm sure on of these applies in Delores the Dumbass' mind:

1) a European herb - guess that's not it.

2) to seize and take away by force - well hell she's still here so that's not it either.

3) an act or instance of robbing or despoiling or carrying away a person by force. see remarks above.

4) sexual intercourse with a woman by a man without her consent and chiefly by force or deception - Ok that's it - NOT!

5) an outrageous violation - well you know since Bill Clinton didn't think it was sex this has to be the winner!

The question is what did Jacques violate again? Oh yeah her integrity. Well Webster says inegrity is an umpaired condition - soundness; firm adherence to a code of esp. moral or artistic values - incorruptibility; and the quality or state of being complete or undivided - completeness. So far I can't say I ever thought DB had integrity by this definition.

She certainly hasn't appeared to be sound nor incorruptibile. This is the woman who formed a company and tried to get AHA business while her husband was selling them insurance? What is it again he violated?????

Rape is a horrible experience. My own mother was violently raped about 20 years ago. But to compare that violent crime with someone campaigning for mayor against you is downright sick. I have never seen such a thing on a political tv commercial. There is an extremely troubling lack of judgement on behalf of the candidate and anyone else who is behind this. What does her husband think? Shouldn't he be horrified by this? A person who would put this on tv could not possibly handle the job of being mayor. In fact, IMHO, she needs serious psychiatric treatment. Some on this blog have expressed anger. However, I am merely sad for this poor, troubled soul.

Delores is probably one of those people who would outlaw the game of tag at recess because someone might get hurt. If she can't handle the "heat" her opponents put on her during the primary then maybe she needs to go home and bake cookies. She is not a "tough" woman as she is trying to portray in her latest ad. If she were, she would have answered the questions in the Committee meeting asked of her and not made up 3 stories about the meeting with the attorneys in Baton Rouge. She can't handle pressure.

"The people at my record company asked me if I could write a song about LIFE; my life, my relationship with God, and where I come from. Well, I can't write a song on purpose, my songs come in a moment of INSPIRATION or DESPERATION."

The closer the election gets the more negative your campaign becomes. What happened to the gracious lady that stood on the stage the night of the Sept, election? That night there was a lady with great INTEGRiTY, POISE, AND CONFIDENCE that would have suited you well in the final weeks of the campaign for mayor. Did your campaign managers or your political strategist convince you that the character and grace you presented to the public on the eve of the election was not the image the citizens and voters of Alexandria wanted to see.

If this is the case, personally, I'd say fire them all, apologize to your voters and run a "cleaner campaign" without the fingerpointing and inneuondos. The incident several years ago, is a matter you dealt with back then and I would imagine something you still with every day. But, don't trivaize it by using it as a campaign tool, to stir emotions in search of voter empathy.

Run on the issues. State where you stand on the issues facing the next mayor who rakes over, and go from there. If you are truly honest and straight-forward with your voters, they will stand behind you.

I have not seen a single entry from a Brewer supporter since the ad aired last night . That says a lot.

In a few days the financial disclosures come out that show who has paid for Delores Campaign since the first primary. I feel fairly certain that the list of contributors will be posted on here and I wonder if those who have financially encouraged this poor lady will want the light of day to expose who they are. I for one am glad that I did not contribute. I feel really sad for Mrs Brewer and her family. Someone who cares about her and who is close to her PLEASE give her a hug and try to convince her that her integrity will begin to be restored once she ends this. Please.

Anonymous said...

Horseshit. Her integrity cannot be restored because she never had any. She is intentonally doing this to her family, friends, Ned, and Alexandria. Make excuses for her if you want but I hold her completely responsible for the agony she has and will caused. Why are we all pretending that the Roy family has no feelings?

I hope we make Delores and example for other greedy people. Albin won't miss a step.

It"s OVER! said...

Sunk to new low! 7:03 A. M. You hit the nail on the head. Times Picayune picked the ad up. This is state, next national. Another black eye for Louisiana. Delores is finished in this community in every capacity. No chamber position for her. Business men would nix that in a heartbeat. She has shit in her mess kit and her life in Alexandria is over. It is a shame that Albin and his ilk will continue to do just fine as the blue blood silk stocking boys seem to do. I don't think their political influence will ever be the same however. And their social standing has taken a big hit, which will hurt them much more than the political part. This is not over and will continue to backfire. But don't think for a minute that she is just a pawn and was not vigorously in favor of this political ad. You could see she was into it 100%. She was scary in her vitriolic intensity, almost psychopathic desperation. She has totally shocked her base supporters and they will never be in her court again in any sense, economic, political or social. She is now the proverbial "turd in the punchbowl" and just will not be heard from again after she withdraws or gets the dogshit beat out of her. I see no reason for Roy to open his mouth for the rest of the campaign. Maybe go to church, kiss babies and smile at little ole ladies, but nothing else. Take a vacation and plan your inauguration.

Oviously everyone on this blog missed the point. She is not saying Roy is a rapist nor is she trying to equate in any way that the garden district rapist is anything like Jacques Roy. She is saying that the strength required to cope with being raped is now needed to cope with his negative campaign. I know that it is pointless to post this but I feel that it is necessary. She is a victim of the Garden District Rapist and Jacques Roy. Jacques attack on her character is the only other thing in her life that was aggressivley taken from her. I hope that it goes national. That would be the best thing possible. Then the entire country will be looking at this town and all of Mr. Roys dealings including the Cleco scandal and his cohorts misbehavior that is quite substantial. Trust me, the worst thing for Jacques is that the Nation looks at his dealings. Jacques and his father and his brother and his friends will all be under a microscope for a long long time.

Anonymous said...

National attention would be great for Delores. Then she could explain what KALB would not broadcast. The Cleco issue is so deep that Delores has only scratched the surface. Trust me when I say that Jacques is not happy about the outside world peering in on how he and his friends and family get their money.

The FBI would have a field day in this web of deciet. There is so much dirty shit that goes on in this town that Jacques and his minions will run for the hills. I wonder how many times he has rewritten his contrct with Sansing since Brewers press conference?

No, anonymous, 8:09:04--you are wrong. The WORST thing that could happen for Mrs. Brewer is for this to go national. None of those other issues would be a part of the coverage. It would all be about calling her opponent a rapist because he aired negative campaign spots. Your candidate (probably your mother) would be destroyed in ways you never imagined. I was a huge fan of Mrs. Brewer. This is the worst campaign decision I have ever witnessed. She is never going to recover from this. Particularly if it goes national. Alexandria will be thrust back to Tillie Synder being featured in the National Enquirer. Please pray this does not happen to your candidate nor your city.

Plus you have the nerve to compare him to a rapist! SHAME on you. The only solice I can take from this is the knowledge, IMHO, that for this you will be judged--by God.

If he says no then he is a liar.

So Jacques is a good lawyer that is able to use the laws passed by the Legislature to obtain justice for his client under those laws. And how exactly is this a bad thing? Isn't that what Delores hired the Provosty firm to do against State Farm?

Now brewer has fletcher speaking to the paper directly for her. She "was beat up pretty bad" by Roy". No she was beat up bad by the voters!
Second, pointing out brewer's lies when she was running on "honesty" ( remember her first mail piece and first words out of her mouth at debate) is not akin to rape or battery; it is exposing her FULL record that she couldn't dodge.
Now , after promising not to go negative , she has lied to the voters again.
Tell me , when did she ever have any integrity to regain!

Alexandria cannot afford for this to go national. This is beyond Delores and Jacques both. Alexandria and Central Louisiana have become recognized for being small rural areas that can get big projects done. We attracted union tank. P&G competed and won the liquid line contract. StarTek chose us over two other cities in the south. All of our business success goes down the tube if this goes national and we can blame Delores the Dumbass and Roy Fletcher. Maybe they should move to Monroe and help out there. Monroe lost State Farm and now they're losing Guide. They need some more negative national attention we don't!

woof said...

I don't think it hurts for this business to hit the public eye. Look how amazingly good Roy is looking. He coulddn't have engineered or bought or even hoped for this kind of personal boost. The unfortunate and painful message is still that Brewer has no regard for other's feelings or welfare. If her son is unable to hear the stuff that is being said about her by everybody everywhere, it is a blessing. He may end up wishing he were blind too.

Roll Call: Rep. Rodney Alexander's office sued for sexual harassment

RAW STORY
Published: Friday October 20, 2006





A Republican Congressman's office is being sued for sexual harassment, according to Roll Call.

"Rep. Rodney Alexander (R-La.), already enmeshed in the ex-Rep. Mark Foley (R-Fla.) page scandal, now faces a new controversy as a former staffer has sued his office for sexual harassment," John Bresnahan reports.

Excerpts from Roll Call article:

#
Elizabeth Scott, Alexander’s former scheduler, claims that Royal Alexander, the Congressman’s chief of staff, “engaged in a course of misconduct” that included “inappropriate sex-based comments, ogling and touching” and “sexual advances,” according to Michael Hoare, Scott’s attorney. Scott told the Congressman of his aide’s alleged improper behavior but the Louisiana Republican took no action to correct the situation, Hoare said.

Adam Terry, Alexander’s spokesman, called Scott’s action a “frivolous lawsuit” and denied that any impropriety had taken place.

“The Office of Rep. Alexander values its employees and conducts all personnel matters in compliance with the Congressional Accountability Act and House Rules,” Terry said in a statement. “As a result, we believe that the facts will show there is no basis for this lawsuit, and we look forward to proving this in a court of law.”

Scott, 26, was employed by Alexander from the fall of 2005 through June 2006, first as an unpaid intern before moving up to take over as the Louisiana Republican’s scheduler. She was paid at annual rate of $30,000, according to House disbursement

Delores got an endorsement today from a former Mayor - Carroll Lanier. So What???? Why you ask - ok here goes -

1) Carroll Lanier is presently listed in every online directory as the procurement contact for the Alexandria Housing Authority. Wasn't this where she tried to get a contract and where her husband sold an insurance policy? hmmm....

2) He states as the first Mayor under the Home-Rule Charter he is best qualified to say who is the most experienced to be Mayor. Well, ok, except for one little item I found. The infamous John K. Snyder sued Lanier and then utility director Robert Lawrence for failing to perform their duty, voilation of the Charter, the State Constitution, the Code of Ethics and City Ordinances when they failed to implement an energy cost adjustment formula at the detriment to the City.

Now, as a result of the suit, the Council passsed a resolution, which I believe still holds true today stating the Mayor cannot sue without approval of the Council, so Snyder lost his appeal.

What I haven't discovered is this - during Lanier's term - which by the way is sandwiched between two Snyder terms - was he involved in a utility scandal that could have saved the City money????? Did he fail in his duty as Mayor? If not, then how did someone like John Snyder walk back into office?

How can a one-term Mayor know who is best qualified to serve? If Delores doesn't win, will he get her a contract with the Housing Authority? If she wins does he have a position in her cabinet?

great sleuthing anon and great questions. ^5

Spanky said...

Hey Guys, I has occurred to me to wonder why it is beneficial for the Brewer campaign to continue to run a repugnant commercial and solicit the endorsement of Carrol Lanier. We have all witnesed the reaction on this blog and in the media to her commeercial, so it is not my imagination that people are reacting negatively. My conclusion at this point is now that it is part of her strategy to make this race so repugnant that voters will stay away from the polls. If she can hold her base, then she has a chance. I think it is time to consider this as a possibility and encourage everyone to go to the polls that we can. If voters are disheartened to the point that they fail to show up, the outcome could swing from the obvious. This old administration is renowned for dirty tricks and Carrol Lanier is a player also.

wesawthat... said...

wow spanky you could be on to something there because the few people we have asked about the commercial and who arent online dont have computers and dont know about this blog or any other blogs etc think that the commercial sealed ms brewers fate. so its a thought that most people thinking that roy is a shoo-in stay home and ms brewer turns out a strong base (assuming there is one left lol) could like you say "could swing from the obvious" very interesting times we live in. as always thanks for the food for thought.

Civil Sentient said...

"solicit the endorsement of Carrol Lanier"

Lanier has been telling folks for months that he's going to be a big dog in Brewers admin team. He used to hold forth at the Red Kettle telling any and all who was going to get fired.
Ya'll may be on to something about making the race so nasty the turnout will be low.

Spanky said...

Jacques, here is your next ad.

I would welcome a debate on the issues and would do so if the drama that surrounds this campaign had not been created. It is time for your serious thought as to your future in Alexandria and the part you will play as a citizen. If you buy into the hype and are discouraged from voting, you will have made your choice. Stand strong. Vote

Poke that cow puddin' said...

I predict that the Brewer team, the Republicans, the social elite and the hanger ons do have a plan and justification for their repulsive actions. "The end justifies the means". They will or have convinced themselves that once Delores gets in, all will be well and she will revert back to the smart, competant golden one to lead the city forward and fatten most of their wallets. I think you are definitely on to something. The diehards will not back off or quit. Too much to lose. I don't think their whole plan has been exposed yet. Beware!

Spanky said...

Let us assume half the turnout. That will make 3500 the breakover point. Can either candidate get 3500 votes to the polls? Bizzaro becomes reality.

****dead Horse***** said...

Consider this fact. We on this blog, particularly the frequent flyers with known noms-de-antics have been consistently wrong, by about a mile, in every prediction and analysis we have made. I think our logic is flawless, our vision clear, and our political justment and savy scores have remained right arround zero. Let me posit this question: What if we are wrong again about the public perception and reaction to the Brewer commercials, the impact of the Lanier endorsement, the result of the blue-haired chrone phone banks, and the new Brewer direction in general. I understand that her present aim is to get out the female vote. I am told that her reception in the target groups has been excellent since the commerials started. Note that she is still running ths thit out of them and we are still prematurely announcing her demise.

The fact that we have ALWAYS been wrong doesn't mean that we are wrong again but that sure is the smart way to bet.

I think another factor that we are overlooking is the enormous arrogance of the Roy campaign. When it was born it was real grass-rootsy and everybody felt involved and included. Now he is insulated by his handlers in ways reminicent of the Nixon Whitehouse. Jacques used to call me every week or ten days to test the air. I have not been able to get thru to him or get him to return my phone calls since Sept. 30th. What does all that mean? i don't know but it sure makes me uncomfortable. I think that Jacques forgot what his campaign and his message and his constituency was all about.

wesawthat... said...

lol cant argue with you there dead horse. in the open primary we thought that the negativity was going to hurt mr roy quite possibly knocking him out of the runoff. we thought that voters would turn to the older more experienced ms brewer and she would finish first followed by joe fuller or roosevelt johnson with roy coming in 3rd. the opposite happened.

Dead Horse said...

We Saw That:
Not only that but we were sure that we sensed this strong wave for change on the Council with a "throw the bums out" mentality sweeping the community but we were completely wrong. I think our faulty reasoning starts with two basic misconceptions:
(1) people give a damn about good government and honesty and progress;
(2) The people who do care about good government and honesty are necessarily "for" it.

How can we possibly put our faith in an atmosphere where Provosty and Lawson, and Bridgit and Hobbs are allowed to survive polically? I am not optomistic.

dead horse, part 2 - has anyone really seen Jacques out and about? Outside of standing in the median just after the press conference he appears to have gone totally underground. I'm not sure why, but something tells me he is gathering the troops. He has been planning, just as he would going into court, his next move. He wants to stay true to his promise on election night to stay positive and focus on the issues. I have a feeling we're fixing to see the game plan unfold just as his opening statement would at court. Presenting the facts, to the voters and then just before the election giving his summation.

I agree that he has to be back out in the neighborhoods - esepecially those he split with Roosevelt. They have to be motivated to come back to the polls.

As for Delores, I don't know what group of women she is winning over. Most who I talk to feel sorry for her because of the rape and feels she needs to seek counseling. She apparently isn't over it, as I can imagine, no woman would ever be. They do not understand the need to use it as a symbolic sword to throw oneself's upon and say that she rose to the challenge then and therefore can do so again. They are equating her with our idiotic Governor Blanco who simply needs to go home to her children and grandchildren.

BREAKING ELECTION NEWS!!!!!!!!

In a move that her few remaining blind supporters are calling bold, brave and necessasary but political experts and anyone with a shred of common sense are calling offensive political suicide, Delores Brewer is expected to announce later today that she is switching parties. It is unknown at this time how the Republicans will react to Ms. Brewer deserting their party so close to an election, since any mention of her name causes a rapid exit by any Republican within earshot. Ms. Brewer is expected to announce the switch at 6:00pm. The announcement will be at the office of her new political party-The Pity Party. Stayed tuned for more developments....

After the council was returned to office complete, I realised that the average voter really doesn't give a shit and the power brokers will feed them all the bread they can eat at the circus.
About all I can hope for is that lightnin will strike.

I agree that we cannot ignore Fletcher and the blue-hairs. Those ol' bitties see their power dwindlin' away and they are going to pull every rabbit out of every hat they can so to speak. Jacques needs to get his 20-40 year political machine motivated and moving forward again. The silence is killing him. I'm not saying he should be responding to her, I am saying he ought to be out there saying something on his own behalf. Let her respond to him.

Spanky said...

I smell smoke too. I sense the machine is getting oiled up to drag voters to the polls for Brewer. The Machine is what happened in the city council races too. The Machine does not have to be that large to have influence. If it was only 3000 votes that are carried to the polls, what influence would that have? The number could be as small as 1500 which is more realistic and manageable. It is typically Democratic but could that explain the announcement if it is true about Delores switching parties? Jacques may not have asked permission to run from the Machine so support cannot be assumed.

Age can be a process that brings grace, wisdom, and inner beauty. It doesn't have to transform you from a nice lady and somebody's parent into a complete bitch. Maybe that's what happens when a republican stops ovulating.

I suppose we'll have to wait to find out if this is true or not.

But, for the record, I personally asked Mrs. Brewer, way back in April, if she would ever consider switching parties.

She told me (and two other people who were having lunch with us) that she was a Republican and would never switch.

And even though I'm a Democrat, I respected her for staying true to herself.

Anonymous said...

Spanky, look for Myron. I heard they cut his legs out from under him but that remains to be seen. I know Myron was talking to Antoon but he really needs to keep the whole gang together and that means Albin and whoever the drags along (Delores in this case) to be able to continue hie reign unimpeded. Myron is amazing. Everybody knows that he is a liar but he tells them the lies they want to hear and they just purr. Fuller or Sams could have neutralized Myron. I ain't so sure bout the rest of them.

more info needed said...

Update me a little more on Roy Fletcher and his previous campaigns. How good is he? How much does he cost? Who is footing the bill? Where is he from? Is he national or just state?

woof said...

Well Lamar, I suppose the only remaining inquiry would be "would Delores lie?"

Delores was born to be republican and the only possible reason I can imagine her switching would be to close a deal with Ned. That being said, if she switched now, could that have some effect on the election process. Rodney and the other party transvestites switched BEFORE QUALIFYING OR AFTER THE ELECTION.

i can think of a much better reason for delores to switch-- because she'd have the advantage of being the first democrat on the ballot.

How can she change her designation on the ballot after she qualified and ran as republican. Why doesn't she just get Albin to get Myron to print up another official democrat party ballot that shows that she is endorsed. He did it for Harry. That's even sweeter, that way Roy helps fund the deceipt.
