I, for one, am glad that Jim Sharp, an alleged Democrat, is running for a statewide judgeship. This way more Democrats than ever can make it a point to skip the race. I know that’s what I’ll be doing.
Sharp, who has long held the nickname “NotSo Sharp” among political circles, said in an interview with the Austin American-Statesman last week, of Democratic Lite Gov. nominee Linda Chavez-Thompson:
…they decide that putting a Hispanic, female, labor organizer boss…(on the ticket) as lieutenant governor (is a good idea).
NotSo then expressed grave doubts about this idea, apparently having decided that there aren’t enough old white guy anti-working family candidates on the typical ballot in Texas.
Of the immediate reactions to NoSo’s blathering, perhaps the best was Houston political commentator Marc Campos’, who said:
Only Jim Sharp can take a dump in his own living room, step in it, sit in it, roll around in it, and sleep in it.
I couldn’t agree more with Campos. I’m voting for Linda Chavez-Thompson, but as a result of this interview, I’ll skip NotSo Sharp’s race.
I have no idea which statewide candidates are well-positioned to win this November, but I do know this: he’s not one of them.
Perhaps, ironically, his blathering can serve as a rally cry for women candidates, Hispanic candidates, and pro-working family candidates, to increase the vote and help great candidates win.
Meanwhile, here’s hoping Sharp gets sharper.
