Pre-Cartoon required reading
PART 1: No Incumbents
. Many people are counting down the days till Ladenburg and Talbert are removed from their council seats
. When I read this ridiculous letter
I fought the urge to projectile vomit and instead got really depressed.
PART 2: No Recent Losers
. How about just appointing the folks who ran for city council and lost? The awkward question is avoided completely in part 2 of my cartoon here. See how Mike Lonergan is passing the torch of frump
to his son Joe Lonergan? The stodgy-nasal bloodline will not be broken. What a boon to the political cartoon cottage industry of Tacoma!
I mean after the entire current council voted to endorse Strickland for Mayor, don't you think that would be kinda weird for Mr. Merritt?
PART 3: No One Campaigning via Facebook
. Most of the political elite got a huge chuckle anytime some 'unqualified' person floated the idea they would like to be appointed to the council. Thus a facebook page for a cat
was created. He's on facebook I guess that makes him QUALIFIED! Ho ho ho!
Even so, if you're a dandy like Mr. Callaghan and you think his rules are something worth paying attention to, that leaves TWO people in all of Tacoma left to be appointed to the City Council: THE NEW TAKHOMAN
or DANIEL BLUE
*. *Some funny guy once commented that Daniel Blue is Tacoma's Sarah Palin.
