It’s been interesting to check the mail over the last month. Instead of the regular junk mail and bills, we’ve seen a major influx of advertisements from candidates. It takes a couple of extra minutes each night to sift through the nonsense, and yes, it’s nonsense, before opening the bills and letters we actually check the mail for.
Having just read Mr. Cunnington’s letter about the Democrat Prime Directive I am at a loss. I am an elected Democratic Precinct Committeeman in and for Precinct No. 194, Pima County on the executive committees for the Pima County Democrats, (Legislative District 11), and Democrats of Oro Valley and have never heard of this Directive. I know that we do not endorse or campaign for any members of a different party but that is the extent of what he may be talking about. He may have a couple of his Tea Party Directives confused will the Democratic Party ideals.

One thing I’ve noticed the Republicans and particularly the far right, scorched earth, take no prisoners Tea Party types are really good at is projection. Whatever dirty tricks they are up to, they accuse their opponents of doing. A perfect example of this is the Oct. 15 letter from Rick Cunnington wherin he accuses Jo Holt of being inflexible and beholden to some completely made up Democratic “prime directive”. Captain Kirk on Star Treck had a prime directive. No evidence exists that the Democrats do. The Republicans on the other hand have given us the most unproductive Congress in history, the most Senate filibusters in history and a lege in Phoenix that only seems capable of passing bills that are clearly unconstitutional so the tax payers can spend millions defending them in court.
