I've been planing to sound off on what I thought of the Republican candidates for the 7th district congressional seat. I've heard what they have had to say, on the Turner Report, the KY3 Political blog and those stupid commercials, and I question most of these individuals sanity. I especially don't like this sovereignty kick they are on. I know what Missouri would be like if the Supreme Court or White House couldn't overthrow the dumb ideas created by some of the people we sent to Jeff City.
With that said, I was in an awkward position today. One of the candidates was in my place of work (NO, not my secret underground laboratory beneath the Springfield's Park Central Square). He was appearing on one of the radio stations in the cluster and he needed some production work done. I was asked to help before he went on the air. As usual, I had to be on-air in a few moments and record two segments that were to run immediately.
This guy wasn't like most of the Republicans I've dealt with in my career or my life. He was incredibly polite and patient. He understood why I wasn't giving him immediate attention. I called on of my supervisor, who said he would be back to the radio station in a few moments. He said he could help this person. I should note this production involved a political ad and LOTS OF MONEY. I was not wanting to be responsible if I messed it up. Since neither I or the candidate had the time for the production, I told him that my supervisor would be back and could help him after his interview. He said that was fine with him.
I made the joke, "You might not want to work with me. I side with the opposing party." He just laughed and said, "Nothing wrong with that. There are some good and honest people who are Democrats. We just don't agree on issues."
THEN SAY IN YOUR COMMERCIALS THAT THERE ARE SOME GOOD AND HONEST DEMOCRATS! DON'T DEMONIZE US AS DESTROYING THE COUNTRY LIKE THE OTHER REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES!
If I see an commercial from this guy saying this, I'll have more respect for him than the other 7th District Congressional candidates. I still won't vote for the guy, but I'll have more respect for him.
Of course, an opinion, like the one above, is why I'm considered the Super-Villain of the Ozarks!!! Mwu-HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
