Any candidate - not canvassers, but a candidate - who can prove to me that they genuinely canvassed voters this weekend will get a photo display of their activities in a Maryland Scramble post. A short candidate bio will be included. Free PR. Whatâ€™s not to like? In this regard, I give you this Washington Post article about how major storms can… Read more »
Overheard at Busboys and Poets in Takoma (aka “the beating heart of the radical Takoma Park syndicate”) this morning . . . confirming the two recent statements by Takoma Parkâ€™s own Vladimir I. Lenin, construction on the wall creating Marylandâ€™s new Ninth Congressional District will begin in the next several weeks. “CD9” is the weekâ€™s trending hip phrase now. Why? Because I said so,… Read more »
An eagle-eyed correspondent has provided me with the battle flag of the organization that is so secret and so seditious and so nefarious that I was doing its bidding without even knowing it. Now you know. We never thought anyone would make the connection between the Yâ€™All Qaeda #YeeHawdists and the RTPS. That Barry Oâ€™Connell is a cunning foe.
In this India Abroad article, I get two whole paragraphs to my narcissistic self. Full disclosure - Iâ€™m not a Silver Spring native but I definitely am funny and irreverent. Just ask me. Oh, yeah, and thereâ€™s some other stuff in the article about some guy running for Congress. Kumar somebody or other. I forget. But these two paragraps are… Read more »
As we head into the holidays, thereâ€™s going to be a wasteland period with little if any news to report. MD candidates are scrambling (product placement alert!) to finish Q4 fundraising with a flourish, but thatâ€™s about it. And we not have anything to talk about in terms of new numbers until January 15, although the whispering has already begun…. Read more »
We have some new Twitter action in CD8. Totally fake, but also very funny so far. FYI: the “ACK” in “ACKkathleen” is the airport code for Nantucket. I had to look it up. Even cooler than two fake Twitter accounts, I got my very own fake tweet from fake Kathleen Matthews. Iâ€™ve made the fake big time!
Way, way, way back. So I just posted a couple of pictures to my personal Facebook page. Me as a senior in high school, 1980-1981. If you can stand the shock of a 35 years younger, 70 pounds lighter version of me with a big head of curly hair running cross country, you should check them out - portrait of… Read more »
All that poor thing wanted was to find a hotel for a little down time, and they murdered it. Bastards. The massive Army blimp that broke free from its mooring and drifted from Maryland to Pennsylvania is “actually still deflating,” a Pentagon spokesman said Thursday. “I am not able to give you the mechanics of exactly how theyâ€™re deflating it,” said Navy… Read more »
I just like typing the word “blimp.” It makes me happy. The idiots at DOD who greenlighted this project , theyâ€™re not happy quite so much. Another thing I enjoy: pictures of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. Those make me very happy too. Also this Twitter account. #BlimpLife
A couple of days ago, I learned of a video, which appears to have been made in the 1970s, promoting AFSCME, one of the countryâ€™s largest and most powerful unions. Nobody know what happened to the audio from the original ad, but apparently, somebody from a local TV station took the video and did an alternate audio track featuring a… Read more »
