Endorsements, The Recap

Wednesday night, most of Team McBlogger went to the megaendorsement meeting at the AFL-CIO here in Austin. YES! We're not only assholes with a blog, we're also voting members of many organizations that endorse candidates in primaries. We take our responsibilities very seriously. In fact, we needed to concentrate on our votes so we adjourned to a quieter place, The Cloak Room, to ponder the proper decisions.

After much deliberation, we had a consensus. Biden for President. I kid... We all voted for Kucinich because we're a bunch of nuts. On the rest of the candidates... well, let's just say the endorsements that came out were mostly representative of our votes. Either we're really smart or everyone is just as irritated as us.

Afterward, Sister Ruth and I made our way to Player's to hang out with the UDems who were being harassed by some crazy person to block walk for Dawnna Dukes. He was doing pretty well, which makes me wonder if maybe the coveted UDems endorsement will be split on HD 46. Before last night, I would have given it a 1 in 5 chance. Now, I'm giving it 50/50. It likely won't help given Thompson's sweep of the endorsements on Wednesday.

For those of you who haven't met her, Rosemary Lehmberg rocks. SR and I had a conversation with her before the kids got to Player's and she's very funny. Yeah, yeah... she's knowledgeable and competent, but she's also funny. That goes a long way with those of us who prefer our absurd political bullshit with a side of laughter. All I'm saying is that some of you people take yourselves WAY too seriously. At the end of the day, you're candidates. Which makes you decidedly less special than the person who brings me my drinks. Now get out of their way.

Finally, Dan Grant swept the clubs that endorsed in the CD10 race (along with an endorsement from Ted Ankrum). As did Rick Noriega. Maxey managed to nail a couple of the endorsements while Spears got SWAD which is understandable given that the founder of SWAD likes Glen about as much as I like lime in my scotch. Which is my nice way of saying get that damn fruit out of my drink.
