Goldilocks had a dilemma. She had three bowls of porridge to choose from, how to choose? Well, one criterion was thermal energy. She found that one was too hot, one was too cold and one was just right.
Then she had another choice to make. What chair was she going to sit in? Size became the criterion. Two of them were just too big for her. So she chose the smallest one, but had eaten a little too much porridge so when she sat in it she turned it into toothpicks.
Eating and busting up furniture is bound to tire one out, so she now had three beds to choose from. Firmness, a definite deciding factor: one was too hard, one was too soft, and the third was “just right”.
When the three bears got back from Wal-Mart they woke her up and she ran out the door screaming into the night.
That’s kind of like how I am feeling right about now. The DCCC has put out two mailers, one that exposes write-in candidate Shelley Sekula-Gibbs as “Too Liberal for Texas” saying that she is “too soft on illegal immigration”.
Then what should appear in my mail box yesterday but another piece from the D-trip-C. This one attacks write-in candidate Don Richardson as “Too Conservative for Texas” as he wants to “put troops on the border”.
That’s where I am right now. Waiting for the bears to come home to scare the holy Krishna out of me.
I agree with Bob Dunn. This is either a brilliant move on the political chessboard, or someone’s wacky idea of good politics.
I am on the fence on this one.
