Posted, smiling, for the author

Dear neighbors,

In Alamo everywhere in North America and in various towns named Poplar we have been discussing just what is a Dick Cheney Republican? In the exchanges, we used Clinton Democrats, Hollywood Liberals, and many more political descriptions to discuss negatives that are so entertaining in our politics.

Labels in politics are oxymorons because they are politically incorrect. Labels tie candidates to one or another negative that is not defined by other than the voters' imagination. Our case in point is the upcoming article that will label our current district 3 supervisor as a Dick Cheney Republican.

We clearly know our supervisor is specifically her own politician defined by her ability to gain support for her re-election. Clearly, there is no other focus than political survival and no definition beyond her own goals. But as her campaign "swift boats" Guy Houston, Democrats and moderate Republicans are "swift boating" the supervisor with the Dick Cheney label.

Now that, my fellow voters, is well misplaced words,

Dear Krak Potts,

Are you by any chance related to Pepper Potts, sidekick to Iron Man? If so, can you arrange a meeting? She's definitely a woman with lots of spunk and sauciness. Her line about "occasionally taking out the trash" is priceless.
