...A New Hope...

There's an interesting and unorthodox candidate running for Congress in Nevada's 3rd District. Ms. Tessa Hafen. She's a single 29 year old Democrat and an active Mormon. She'll be running against the two-term Representative Jon Porter. Congressional Quarterly rates the race as "Republican Favored" rather than "Safe Republican." Tessa's biggest liability will be her age and the current disparity in their respective campaign warchests. These are in no way insurmountable though. She's running unopposed for now, but Democratic challengers have until May 12th to file for the primary. Anyway, I say keep an eye on her.

and i say there is probably a reason she isnt married... either she is crazy or a bitch.

Or she just hasn't met you, Gar--you big charmer.

I say yay to Mormon female democrats. Finally we're a force to be reckoned with. Even if there are only two of us.

Get a room. Or go start your own country. I'm fine with either.

melbo said...

Yeah, Gar. Everyone knows you're damaged goods if you're not married by the ripe old age of 26. At least in Arizona. Wait, you're from Arizona and you're not married... how old are you again?

I think Woo just wants to see two girls get a room. He's no better than the rest of us.

Mind Spewer said...

Woo are you talking about me and that chick getting a room? And are you hoping the room will be full of mud and that we'll start to wrestle? That was so Dems circa 1995. We're a whole new breed now. We use biodegradable jello.

Melbo, how little you know me. I am born and raised utah, baby! Damaged goods, hardly. Because i don't have a wife to make my skin wrinkly and hair white, i will be pullin hot 18 year olds till im 55.

Marc said...

That's the great thing about 18 year olds... you get older... they stay the same age.

(Hope you caught the Matthew McConaughey line I desecrated there Liz)

melbo said...
