By his aftershave, ye shall know him

WHICH local elections kingpin snuck into a meeting of the Progressive Democrats Club last night to spy on the opposition and furiously scribble notes to prepare for the next battle to seat pre-programmed tea-partyesque know-nothings into positions of power?

    I have heard the statement, “a sudden chill was felt through the room” but never have I seen a better example. The temp must have dropped 20 degrees! Maybe Owen was trying to do what Marks was doing at the Central Committee meetings, a direct pipeline to your rival’s innermost business. Sublety, thy name is NOT Owen!

    Honestly, how can you expect to be an effective spy when everyone knows your face? Haven’t these guys ever heard of interns?

    That will make good election material: the pre-programmed tea-partyesque know nothings vs the pre-programmed progressive democrat know-nothings. All the more reason to find some moderate non-pre-programmed know somethings to run for office. Are there any out there? Please?

    Hilariously lame and pathetic-someone reeked of gin and desperation!

    If he reeked of gin and desperation, his wife appeared to reek of oxy-contins and martinis in her chamber picture in the ts! What fabulous local royalty Eureka has!

    Matt Owens is a Democrat.

    Owen was always a Republican, until it was time to run his wife for a local seat. Republicans don’t sell in Humboldt County, but a Democrat sure does.

    This site is still screwed up.

    This thread is so charmlessly Humboldt Mirror-like with the exception of the spate of Mitch messages.

    Maybe rob and matt are on the down-low? Is anybody suprised?

    Dear (not) the real mitch at 4:55,

    Thank you for your concern, but the “nobody3” email address is just one I made up. I’d suggest that others do likewise.

    The problem is not at the Herald.

    I’m old enough to remember when America’s telephone network had what was called “five nines” reliability: 99.999% up-time.

    But it’s expensive to build equipment that works right, and it’s expensive to hire workers who are competent, and we all know that in today’s America, cheaper is better and taxes are evil.

    Live connected.

    It’s not the website. Suddenlink seems to be caching pages and serving them to its customers.

    I think 6:57 misspelled his pseudonym as well. He meant to call himself Animus.

    Oops, not 6:57, 6:10.

  33. January 29, 2011 at 12:26 pm

    If slurring could be detected in writing, I think that it would be found it the post-happy-hour comment of anomous 6:10.

    You sure that wasn’t NAN?

  35. January 29, 2011 at 8:49 pm

    I’m just testing this because the name box says I’m oldphart. And I’ve always wanted to be oldphart.

    Getting nasty now “oldphart” not me, not my address either. Yeah, blame it all on Suddenlink, I just left at&t due to their poor internet service, Yahoo sucks big time.

    This is like the Andromeda Strain. It will spread, and consume the Blogsphere. We are doomed.

    That was me @ 8:49. Not sure why it says I’m Kristabel now.

    Holy Hand Bags Batman! It is mutating too fast!

    Twenty bucks says it mutates from Kristabel to Ernie’s Place.
