Nominee for most hilarious campaign
brochure ever: Reminding us of the upcoming local selection, we got
in the mail a four-page high dollar comic whole lot of saying
nothing. About someone, we must assume, who has done nothing to brag
about. It's populated by a variously positioned cardboard standup of
Buddy, (like Buddha, Beyonce and Jeb) - last name apparently too
prophetic for public consumption. Feaux Buddy has been placed before
three separate sets of folks and a soccer ball who are trying to
ignore this eerily grinning statue. The illusion being floated is
it's a real person being a man of the people traveling to different
neighborhoods. Note location of soccer ball behind nattily attired
black couple puzzling over what they're confronted with. Clearly the
soccer ball prop was a good look only for the Hispanic-white couple.
The ball also tells us that, instead of visiting different
neighborhoods, where people might have their own ball, they just
stood the standup in one place and arrayed the living models.
Thus our fearless leader. But anyway,
don't forget. A vote for Buddy is a vote for Dyer.
Apparently the White House Chief of
Staph is also stupid. As is anyone at this point who fails to
recognize the deliberate role of the media in the perpetration and
perpetuation of civilian mass killings as well as the time-honored
government sanctioned ones. It's a form of random capital
punishment they call capitalism. There it is – the demon
unmasked. Again. Why is the outcry still and forever misdirected? They do say love is blind.
