Ah, look what I got in the mail:
Oh, it’s my good friends at the Republican Leadership! What do they have to say?
Well, I certainly want to Support My Republican Team. After all, Republican Leaders do Make Strides. So this is a voter guide, huh? Does it tell me anything about who the Republicans support for judge?
Wait . . . what? You’re telling me that the Republican Party is supporting Songhai “Sunny” Armstead for a judicial position? But . . . isn’t she the candidate I have told you about here who goes around using her skin color as her primary job qualification? Whose supporter filed a bogus DMCA takedown to scrub the evidence from YouTube, forcing me to host the proof here on my own site?
Yes, she is. So what is the Republican Party doing endorsing a race-baiting candidate like that?
The short answer is: they’re not.
Before you start to fly into a rage against those damned Establishment Republicans, take a super-close look at that first image. See that tiny upside-down disclaimer at the bottom? Here’s what it says:
REQUIRED BY LAW – NOTICE TO VOTERS: THIS DOCUMENT WAS PREPARED BY LOS ANGELES COUNTY REPUBLICAN LEADERSHIP VOTER GUIDE, NOT AN OFFICIAL PARTY ORGANIZATION. Appearance in this mailer does not necessarily imply endorsement of others appearing in this mailer, not does it imply endorsement of, or opposition to, any issues set forth in this mailer. Appearance is paid for and authorized by each candidate and ballot measure which is designated by a *.
That includes Songhai “Sunny” Armstead. She paid to appear in this slate mailer. A slate mailer, I will add, that has nothing to do with the Republican Party whatsoever.
Armstead is not the candidate you want to vote for in Office 97. My friend Teresa Magno is.
These slate mailers fool a lot of people. Don’t let them fool you.
