More Endorsements for Michelle Lujan Grisham Candidate for CD-1
From the Michelle Lujan Grisham Campaign:
The Lujan Grisham campaign wants to share some big news. In the last week they have seen a great deal of momentum for our campaign! They have received the Endorsement of PODER PAC, a national effort to increase the number of Latinas elected at all levels of government, as well as the New Mexico Pharmacists Association.
Michelle's campaign is having a fundraising effort now calling it "Fill the Tank".
So Michelle Lujan-G has been endorsed by a group trying to "increase the number of Latinas elected." Considering that her primary opponents are named Chavez and Griego, it's probably not the Latin part that's important, but the -as part. Okay, one for gender politics.
Marty wants to know that African-Americans support him. He's got a long list of influential members of the African-American community, all of whom seem to be named Pastor.
I went to an integrated high school, and not one of my Black classmates was named Pastor. They had names like Reggie and John (that was during that brief period after they were called Negro and before they became African-American).
When I was very young I thought the Black guy next door was named Doctor, because that's how my parents refered to him, as Doctor [name]. But he was from the Caribbean and his wife was french, and I think they spoke french at home, so they talked funny.
I wonder if Marty is trying to send some sort of coded message with all those prominent African-American supporters named Pastor.
Hector Balderas wants us to know that someone thinks that 'more Hispanics will be elected to the U.S. Senate in 2012.' I guess this is a natural extension of his platform: 'I'm qualified because I'm from a small town in Northern New Mexico.'
So where are the old fat short white candidates from back east who aren't too bright and who wear hats? I want someone who can represent ME!
Where's Bella Abzug? Isn't there some story about how she will one day return and lead us out of this foetid swamp of gender and racial politics?
Isn't there some condidate somewhere who is actually talking about how to make the country better?
