As if they didn't have enough to worry about...

The Shelby County Democratic Party apparently had a good day Saturday morning at their Covenant Breakfast. No, as far as I know, they didn't hold hands and sing "Kumbaya", but they didn't kill each other, either. The best report is found here at David Holt's site.

Now, of course, those ExecCom members that are not active in a campaign (and why aren't you?) are praying that neither Walter Bailey or Cleo Kirk will win their races for County Commission. This, of course, would force them into choosing someone in either district as our nominee; since Republicans never win in either district, this would be tantamount to handing them a Commission seat. Last I heard, both men were continuing to campaign.

Here's a suggestion. There are two races in each district, so why not do this: pick the second-place candidate FROM THE OTHER RACE in each district. Pick the second place candidate from Position 2 for Position 1 in District 2, and then pick the second-place candidate from Position 1 for Position 2 in District 3.

Sorry if that reads like a menu from an old Chinese restaurant, but you get my point: if the people in that district deliberately cast their lot with the Executive Committee when they knew they could have chosen someone available to serve NOW, that's a REJECTION, folks.

Personally, I hope that District 2 voters will choose Darrick Harris and spare us that one. District 3 voters, you're on your own.
