I do my best to remain unaffiliated politically, and am accordingly registered undeclared, but I did vote in the Democratic primary two years ago, and someone told the Dems.
The mail the other day brought a flier telling me how great Mike Davis is. He is running for Assembly and claims to be The Democrat Who Unites Us. OK, fine.
The mail also brought an envelope from Supervisor Yvonne Burke, containing a FREE GIFT. (Davis is Burke’s Senior Deputy.) The gift? A pot holder.
Yes, a pot holder.
It says “Mike Davis, Democrat for Assembly,” and don’t think it escaped my notice that it arrived immediately before one of the biggest barbeque weekends of the year (though a mitt would have been smarter).
Is it just me (after all, I have avoided the party mailings until recently), or have politics gotten weird?
