OhNine OnLine for October 26th; The Last Full Week Before VOTING!!!

Can Josh Cohen send out any more mailers??? maybe....this is a long post with a lot of upcoming events listed so...please turn the page

Oh God please make it stop!!! We get the point that all the bigwig Democrats are pulling out all the stops to endorse and campaign with you. Okay. Okay. But please...the junk mail is too much!!! (And it's not in the least bit "green" either....) By the weay, I absolutely loved the way Josh brushed off and joked about Dave Cordle's remark about his college experience 18 years ago at the forum last week. Very funny. I think it was a Lloyd Bentsen moment. Then Dave tried to dig it in again. St. John's President Chris Nelson must have been as amused as was the rest of the audience.

I got a postcard from Dave Cordle showing an elderly couple worried about their property taxes as a way to show how he is the one mayoral candidate supporting a tax cap. True. True indeed but with a tax cap, maybe we should also show how their buses will shut down, trash won't get picked up, home inspections will be stopped, police will be sent home, firefighters will get rusted trucks, water will be turned off and aliens will overrun the border to steal their cheap medications. Okay so you think I am being alarmist? Perhaps. But so is the photo of the worried elderly couple. Of course, how can we expect serious discussion of the tax cap in a postcard? Answer: We cannot. But the point is well taken. Along among the candidates, Cordle supports the tax cap. Beware of the law of unintended consequences.

Lots of signs up....my next door neighbor has two Cordle signs and I don't even think she knows what Ward we live in or the difference between a Kennedy liberal and a Goldwater conservative.  My neighbor across the street has a big Fox sign. At Cohen's old home around the corner, there is now a Cordle sign. Well-that's private property baby! Maybe a Republican used to live in Cohen's current home. Find any old issues of National Review in the cellar? And I have not mentioned about the Hunt Meadow sign situation.

District 30 Democrats--Wednesday, October 28 (the fourth Wednesday of the month) at Asbury United Methodist Church, 87 West Street, Annapolis. Doors open at 6 p.m.; the meeting starts promptly at 6:30 p.m.  Democratic mayoral candidate Josh Cohen will be with us for the start of the meeting, and Speaker Mike Busch and Delegate Virginia Clagett will speak with us.  We'll hear from the mayoral and aldermanic campaigns about the final push before the November 3 election in the City of Annapolis. We look forward to seeing you there.  Meanwhile, please volunteer to help elect our Democratic candidates!....and at the same time, renegade Democratic activist and rabble rouser Chuck Weikel, in  deliberate snub of his own party, is hosting some sort of a fundraiser for candidates Kenny Kirby, Ian Pfeiffer and Mat Silverman at the same time at CastleBay Pub....while I can understand why Kirby would go, I would think the other guys would run in the opposite direction....Silverman, a county policeman, is working that night and did not even know he was being featured at the event. As for Pfeiffer--well he must see some kind of benefit....
