No need for mudslinging

Beth Bates’ Open Forum letter, promoting her choice for City Council, reminded me of a scene from the classic female empowerment movie “Legally Blonde.” Lawyer-to-be Elle Woods is the only one on the defense team who knows the defendant’s alibi, which would prove her innocence but also shame her. When pressured to reveal the defendant’s alibi, or they would lose the case, Elle responds “well then we’re not very good lawyers.”

Beth Bates, campaign manager for Friends of Richard Bell, if your candidate is so good then there is no reason to even mention his opponent. This is a small town election, let’s not sling mud or try to shame others. Judging by all of the signs I see in Ward 1 for the opposing candidate, I think many residents are very happy with his service for the city and work in the community.

Remember what first lady Michelle Obama said, “When they go low, we go high.”

Good thing you hide behind a fake name, coward. Wouldn't want people to laugh in your face in real life, huh?

"All this for a flag?" Michelle Obama bitterly asked.

"For the first time in my adult life, I am really proud of my country, because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback." This statement by Michelle Obama is something to consider with the $85 million taxpayer dollars for non-working vacations and amusements she and Barack spent over their 8 years at the White House.

$152 million in three years...

"Bitterly"? "Determining exactly what the First Lady might have said via lip reading is complicated by the fact that her lips disappear behind a partition at one point in the clip. Other experienced lip readers have interpreted the sentence uttered by Michelle Obama during this clip to be anything from “We’re in for a real fight” to “I wonder if they flew that flag” to “It’s amazing how they fold that flag” (the consensus of the contributors at AllDeaf.com) to “How pretty they fold that flag”

As of 9/6/20, Trump has been at one of his golf courses 138 times at a cost of $141+ million in only three and a half years.

Olivia, are you aware that Michelle Obama was lying when she said that? Democrats never take the high road. Never!

Doc Samson

@Bernie - Wait, you mean bringing a gun to a knife fight isn't taking the high road? [lol]

Bryan.the.Nuri

You can't bring anything "Doc". Stop acting like you're going to do anything.

Doc Samson

Not playing that game, little man. 🤣 😇

I was referencing the classic "high road" taken by your man, Obama, O Ignorant One.

Bryan.the.Nuri

Poor baby... You run and hide when someone lashes back at you? No wonder you're more comfortable hiding in the shadows...

Get some integrity, Goat Boy.

Bernie Mac

Unlike you, I have a life. You should venture out of your mom's basement once in a while. There is a big 'ol wonderful world out here.
