NotSo fast, Jim Sharp

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.

    John Sharp loves him some NotSo, if only for tying up the nickname.
