    I don't see the man's appeal -- except as the 'NOT Neil'. He's got no program, no personality and little money. Yet, if he wins he will make history.

    Being "not Neil," is golden this year.

    Buy enough tissue boxes for the tears that will be visiting you the morning of 08/01/2014.

    Abercrombie's endorsements are similar to what Mr. Joshua's reference with his "look at the hardware"; 'cept Abercrombie's gubernatorial stint won't end up like shadow Company.

    Tyrion Lannister. My a@s.

    Grease, TODAY is "8/01/14". Why should anyone have tears today? We're getting a little ahead of ourselves, aren't we? Don't count your greasy little chickens before they hatch; you may come up a few short of a fowl nest.

    Ahem.

    Get ready, ohia' . . . because this is probably the only time I'll say it: a Grease stands corrected . . . today IS "8/1/14"; TYPO' on a Grease's part, meant to say "08/10/2014."

    Ah! Look what just escaped from its exhib . . . oh, it has been caught (or will be very soon; oh, wait, yes. It is certainly caught. Because it ALWAYS gets caught. :) ).

    mahalo, Derrick DePledge, for sifting through the campaign donation data for us. It's very telling to "compare and conclude"... who's supporting Abercrombie-Mr.PLDC-private-public partnership vs the lack of big money support for Ige-Mr. Low key engineer. Interesting that out-of-state housewives would donate $6000 to Abercrombie... must be really worth it to their husbands' economic development.


  8. anthuriumz:

    lack of big money support for Ige indicates the voters who support him are little people like me who know from the facts that "economic development" does not trickle down. That's why we have to fight to raise the minimum wage, and it's still not keeping up with inflation.
