How Not to Make Friends and Influence People

As of Wednesday, I hadn't made up my mind in the D.C. mayoral race. Could go for Fenty. Could go for Cropp. Intrigued by Johns the more I read about her. But then perusing DCist yesterday, I see that Cropp made it fairly clear this week that she no likey the open meetings so much. As a former newspaper reporter, I find her actions troubling. (I find it even more troubling that The Washington Times has actually claimed the journalistic high ground on any issue, but that's a story for another day...)

So I wasn't exactly feeling pro-Cropp this week. Then this morning, she sealed the deal. Little mobletts of her supporters were stationed up and down 16th Street. At the corner of U and 16th Streets these tools were walking back and forth over the crosswalk every time the light changed, s-l-o-w-l-y, waving their signs. It's already enough of a pain turning onto 16th from U in the morning here because of regular pedestrians. I certainly don't need these buffoons gumming up the works even more.

Way to go Linda Cropp. Way to go.

Generally speaking, I find the sign men for Fenty to be more attractive... Does that help? (But I'm intrigued by Marie Johns too.)

I've voted for people for far shallower reasons...
