The Hotze-Locke Recap

Not surprisingly, it seems mayoral wannabe Gene Locke has basically accepted the endorsement he sought out–that of right-winger Steven Hotze.  He sure hasn’t rejected it!  Here are some links from some of my fellow bloggers who have posted on the endorsement mailer sent by Hotze.

Muse-Musings:  We wait for Locke to reject it, except we know that Locke sought Hotze’s endorsement. Hmm. Tapping my toes. Yawn. No repudiation of the endorsement from Locke yet.

Off The Kuff:  Pay particular attention to these two images, which capture the case Hotze makes for and against each candidate. He uses the phrase “radical liberal” six times – interestingly, the one candidate he doesn’t affix that label to is Annise Parker, though he does say she’s “supported by liberal Chicago labor union interests”, whatever that means – and he makes a point of noting that all seven candidates he opposes have been endorsed by the “Gay Lesbian political action committee”. I don’t think you need an advanced degree in literature to be able to read the subtext here.

Bay Area Houston:  Look for Gene to back pedal out of this endorsement faster than a republican getting caught at a hooker convention with a bag full of condoms.

Locke and fellow Dumbocrat Andrew Burks join wing-nuts Brenda Stardig, Al Hoang, Jack Christie and confused Independent Steven Costello in getting the endorsement.  One small glitch, though:  Costello has rejected the endorsement, which could be a smart move if folks easily buy into it.  DC is not.
