Hold Your Horses, Carmen

U.S. Senate Candidate Carmen Amedori may have crossed a line with her most recent Facebook Status:

Carmen Amedori Let his days be few; and let another take his office. Psalm 109:8 (Posted at 8:40 a.m.)
I'm no fan of our President's policies, but the Biblical quotes being bandied about in reference to his Presidency give me the creeps.  I don't think this is professional, and it gives me concerns about her temperment.  This is disappointing since some of the other primary candidates in this race have also raised some issues.

Despite not being the front runner, I still really like Jim Rutledge.  Somehow he has avoided the nonsense attacks that his primary opponents have latched onto.

  1. How do you know that this is in reference to President Obama? Amedori is running for US Senate....

  2. Well 1) it is a Biblical passage used frequently in reference to the President; 2) she is planning to run against a female (figure she would at least sub in pronouns according); and 3) I don't think she was talking about the Prime Minister of Japan.

  3. This is ridiculous. Everything that every candidate says is going to be misinterpreted. We must remember that the republican candidates are not the enemy; Barbara Mikulski is. Let's stay focused!

  4. Fair enough. What is the misinterpretation?

  5. Anon 2:49 is the problem with both the republican party and the democratic party. These people are elected to represent the interest of the constituency, NOT TO ADVANCE YOUR TEAM!!! Some egos have taken over the human form. Really.

  6. I do take issue with your comment. I have found that Rutledge and Vaughns campaigns are the nastiest folks in the race. Amedori and Wargotz memebers have kept above that nonsense as best I can tell. Corrogan is ...well...corrogan and Jim is passive aggressive and nasty. MJ

  7. Thanks MJ. I just think it is unprofessional. I am surprised to hear that Rutledge has a nasty side, but that does more to disappoint me than change my impression of Amendori. Can't we just talk issues and not make fun of Mikulski's injuries or quote Bible verses about how we hope ANYONE's "days are few"? THAT is what I take issue with, regardless of what her opponents are doing.
