Tuesdays with Krusty
Yesterday’s comment section was disgusting. It’s good to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the candidates for RPI chair, it’s another thing to launch into personal attacks and kindergarten antics. Some of you need to grow up. I really question if some people really want a strong Republican Party that wins elections, it seems that a few only want their guy to win and if he doesn’t screw it. We have to get beyond that people.
Pizza and Politics
Strawn continues on his barnstorming tour of the state. One of my trusted correspondents reported that 20-25 people showed up at his Cedar Rapids event yesterday, SCC member David Chung was there so maybe he will have more on the stop at his blog. Strawn’s efforts are to be commended, and the fact that a good number of people turned out to talk with him shows us that there are many Republicans ready to get to work. Too bad some on this blog think it’s more constructive to rip our party apart.
Everyone has a plan, except the guy with the most votes.
I think almost all the candidates running for RPI chair have put forward a plan or general idea which allows us a glimpse of how these candidates would lead our party. The one guy without a plan is Gopal Krishna. Oh I guess we are to believe that Sporer will be his Co-Chair but Sporer is AWOL. Additionally, the Co-Chair is elected by a separate vote so there is no guarantee he would even be elected. More troubling is that the SCC could elect a guy without knowing what he plans to do in the position.
I’m told this is consistent with his previous actions on the SCC. He never talks about why he would be a good leader for the Party, instead he focuses on why others are bad. I’m also still waiting for people like Leon Mosley and Steve Scheffler to explain what has changed in the last 8 years that has you convinced that Gopal is the right man to lead the Party. Eight years ago you both signed a letter to county leadership banishing him, what’s the deal?
Culver organizes” A Season of Hope” event today in Cedar Rapids
The press release says. “The holiday program will recognize the outpouring of support and assistance the Cedar Rapids community has received since the floods, as well as the continuing challenges the community has faced while trying to rebuild.”
This is nothing more than Chet Culver wanting a little pat on the back for all he’s done for the people of Cedar Rapids. The only problem is he didn’t do much. He refused to call a special session because it would have exposed Iowa’s budget crisis before the elections, all he did was scream at the federal government when many of the holdups were created by local inaction. I think some of the flood victims need a little more than a cup of coffee, a cookie and a Chet Culver for Governor Rally; they need help.
