This will be VERY interesting, I hope Griffin confirms, she is my top choice.

Griffin definitely isn't afraid to speak her mind, but I'd prefer a candidate that is more open to being the white man's bitch...

To hold that against her is not fair, in my opinion, if she has the guts the go ahead and the weather all, and is the best choice would you disregard the totality of it all because of a choice of words?

Monday is Shorewood ready for the Black invasion? Will Shorewood welcome these women or act 'ignant'-ebonics for 'ignorant'?
CowDung July 25, 2012 at 08:41 PM
The fact that she fought to have those words to appear on the ballot is reason enough to hold it against her. The racial component contained in those words makes me doubt that she is interested in representing everyone in the district...

This is going to be good

I'm in shocked that I actually agree with CowDung on something... In all seriousness, we ALL deserve someone with more maturity and better judgment representing us.

if ur not going to listen to her why should she listen to u?

Wow, given the choices available on the Democratic side, a moderate Republican might just stand a shot in this race, should one declare.
