Candidate, Silly Party

While we enjoy the wailing and gnashing of teeth with the defunctification of TA, let us witness another sign of the End Times.

As of Monday morning Jim Simms was running unopposed for Commissioner Place 4. As of Monday evening he had three competitors. As the race now stands:

Jim Simms
Erik Williams
Fransetta Mitchell Crow
D. C. Chamberlain
Yes, that Erik Williams: Former* guest columnist for the Amarillo Globe-News; conservative tail-twister; rhetorical bomb-thrower; bigot-basher; red-neck baiter; wine and cheese eater and all around flaming damned liberal.

*Blackballed by bigot enablers and apologists, he thinks he is feuding with the AGN over Virgil Van Camp like an ant feuds with a dead whale. Still, since they are balanced and fair, wise and courageous and apoplectically apologetic, there is bound to be a nice write up and an endorsement any day now.
Sources say he’s already raised an astonishing $3.17 this week and his wife has said she might think about voting for him. Watch out Simms!
