Al Edwards still in love with Al Edwards

Via Whitmarsh's list comes a press release from Al Edwards the former Representative from Houston who hates him some cheerleaders and is, as we all know, a thoroughgoing loser. Remember? He lost to Borris Miles.

Honestly, I thought Edwards had killed himself with some cheap booze but apparently that didn't happen. One has to wonder if Sly Turner, who's enough of a dumbass to think he'll be Speaker, was also enough of a dumbass to ask Edwards to step in for a 2006 rematch against Miles.

I don't think it's possible for me to really deride this in the manner it deserves, but I'm willing to try. Full text of the release and my comments are in the supersize.

----- Original Message ----- From: Al Edwards Sent: Saturday, January 05, 2008 1:17 PM Subject: Democratic-Al Edwards-State Representative District 146

WTF is up with that subject?!?


WE can, but you can't as you proved during your tenure as Representative. That's why the folks in your district sent Miles to Austin instead of you. They realized they could do better.


Al Edwards will return to Texas Capitol with over 27 years of committed experience,
dignity, and integrity.

DIGNITY? Oh, fuckall, Al. You have to be kidding me! As for re-electing you, if the voters have already rid themselves of you but you want to come back, shouldn't you be asking them to 'elect' you?

I am running for State Representative of District 146 again because I understand that redistricting will have a dramatic event on all of us. I know we need a strong Democrat to keep a Republican from controlling District 146. I want to help save and preserve TSU, Texas History more importantly Emancipation-JUNETEENTH and all of Texas culture. I am that unbiased individual who is willing to fight for the betterment of all citizens, especially for the improvement of our educational system. I have strived to reduce taxes and to protect every citizen form being abused by the eminent domain law. I am a strong supporter for the growth and development of the businesses in District 146.
The people in District 146 obviously need a 'strong Democrat', unfortunately, Al, you're neither. Oh, and it's a good idea to run spell check before you send things out.

If I give you a quarter, will you promise to buy yourself a clue, Al?
