Many of the local bloggers are being inundated with e-mailed press releases from all of the different campaigns. Today, I got one from Hans Riemer's campaign manager about his joint endorsement with Valerie Ervin from the state chapter of the National Organization for Women. Joint endorsement? What is NOW implying - that they would like you to vote by eeny-meeny-miney-mo? Perhaps.
Anyway: later this afternoon I got a shout-out in regards to a comment I made about Marilyn Praisner, Montgomery County Councilwoman and my neighbor of sorts. (I say "neighbor of sorts" because, while her house is less than a quarter-mile from mine, the non-existent connections make walking there for a cup of sugar nearly impossible.) I would like to respond by saying that no, Marilyn Praisner did not hit a kid, nor am I inferring that this ever occurred. (If you really want to talk about reckless blogging, check out MoCo Progressive's predictions for the Attorney General race.)
And while Just Up The Pike does not do endorsements, I will say that primary opponent Mike Jones has terrible writing skills and Republican Mark D. Fennel should really try stand-up. Despite my previous frustrations with Marilyn Praisner, I have far more confidence in her than I do in either of these guys.
