Glossing Over

Apparently, and according to today's Watauga Democrat, Republican Party Chair Jim Goff was prepared to ignore the corpse in the room at Saturday's Republican Party county convention and ac-CENT-jew-wait the positive, until some unidentified woman (we always imagine these troublesome people speaking up from the back row) interrupted the proceedings. I find it appalling, she reportedly said, that the party didn't have any candidates to run for any of the County Commission seats.

That wasn't in the script.

And then tumbled out all the "just wait until 2010" rationalizations and the I-would-have-run-if-I-weren't-so-devoted-to-my-family excuses and (we assume) the triple sour grapes that the new Watauga High School will EVENTUALLY do in the Democrats.

Plus one quite well known local activist urged everyone to show up for County Commission meetings for the next two years and use the public comment opportunity to belly-ache out loud about how Republicans know how to do everything right except recruit viable candidates for public office.
