On May 2nd NC held its primary election. On May 9th I received my first mailing from recently victorious Republican candidate Vernon Robinson
. Most of the good stuff is in this page
on his website, but the best stuff is reserved for esteemed unaffiliated voters like myself. Besides the classy signed graduation photo from the Air Force Academy
class of 1977, it also includes some excellent double entendre or at least single entendre about his opponent Brad Miller's
sexual affiliation. In a missive titled "Brad Miller's San Francisco Soul Mate," I learned that DailyKos
hosts an online diary
for Rep. Miller. This is the actual 2nd sentence (and it's in bold font) "Brad Miller has gotten into bed with Markos Moulitsas Zuniga, a 35-year-old musician who was raised in El Salvador before moving to San Francisco." I know from other bold faced type that "Brad Miller is a childless, middle-aged, personal injury lawyer." And despite the fact that he's married
, I know that all of this makes him gay and thus unfit to serve as my congressman. No wonder Robinson is called the "black Jesse Helms."
