Ann Althouse passes along one of the more bizzare campaign slogans we’ve heard in many a year…
(“If you like oral sex, vote Caragol for council.”) Just some political slogan in Hialeah, Florida , which the Miami Herald informs us is “no laughing matter.” The Miami Herald isn’t going to tell me when to laugh.
“People want to give it a negative interpretation, but anyone who knows me and my way of being knows that I didn’t mean for the comment to degrade or offend anyone,” [Jose “Pepe” Caragol told The Miami Herald.
“My way of being” â€” I love that. I’m going to use that. Anyone who knows my way of being knows….
Caragol’s opponent, Mercy Dominguez, wants us to know “that as a mother and a woman she finds the phrase offensive.”
Other than a move which could only be labeled as “hey look at me” I have no idea what this guy’s purpose is. At the very least, he’s got a lot of people talking about him. I suppose, it could be said that the idea worked, then. Clearly, he’s not running a “family values” campaign. Would it be safe to assume that the guy is a Democrat? Ummmm.. yeah.
Hey, wait a minute; speaking of that… isn’t Monica Lewinsky from Hialeah?
