I've been thinking about it since I first read it in The Reflector.
You know, in theory, something like that makes sense.
His application of it, however, is, well, lacking.
Let's take each letter of the acronym, as reported in the paper:
C = Character.
OK. One of his newer chief minions is Jon Russell, a man who has proven repeatedly that he HAS no "character." He's a fake conservative, he's a fake Christian, he's a liar, time and time again...
Freeman has a fake college degree. Plinski claims herself to be a "small business owner," arguably untrue by virtue of the fact that the Secretary of State's office and Department of Revenue have never heard of her... like they have every other legal small business owner in this state.
So why is Madore even talking to him, let alone shilling/supporting him? Or the other two?
Is claiming to be a born-again Christian the secret key to getting Madore's checkbook?
A = Attitude.
"Attitude" can mean many things to many people. It can also be an act, and, frankly, it has no place as part of a candidates skill set by virtue of his or her electability. "Attitude" can be, and frequently is, a front. Tim "The Liar" Leavitt's attitude and his lies got him elected. Does that make him a good candidate, worthy of Madore's support?
S = Skill.
Again, Jon Russell has no skills. Neither does Freeman or Plinski or Zandamela. So why is Madore supporting them?
H = Habits
Russell has a habit of lying to get elected. There's nothing he won't say to make you believe he's "worthy." He has a "habit" of selling himself to the highest bidder: making bank on both the Library levy and the massive Port levy tax increases... selling out his alleged principles for a pay check.
I, for one, won't do it.
I would rather be homeless then support or work for a candidate who willingly violates the principles I uphold.
All of which makes me ponder: there is an OVERWHELMING buzz out there that Madore is coming after Boldt... that is, that he, personally, will be running against Boldt, that Madore has put a campaign organization together and is, with his unlimited check book, about to bust a move on Boldt.
Madore has, apparently, recently put together that I am Boldt's brother-in-law. That fact doesn't make any difference to Marc, who has sold out every shred of the conservative values that saw him get elected for the downtown mafia/Identity Vancouver types who now own him like the 13th Amendment never passed, and as a result, it doesn't make any difference to me.
I will be assisting in Boldt's removal from office next year... because I have enough information to accomplish that fact.
The only questions are these: do I help someone else? Or do I do it myself?
Because, due to Madore's actions and support of many (but certainly not all) candidates and people who shouldn't even be IN politics, let along hold elective office, and because of the people he's surrounded himself with, it's not going to be him.
