A07, Eugene Moore asks polling judges to support his candidates [D209, D88, BW]

This is the letter from former Democratic Committeeman Eugene Moore to election judges. Here's the substance of it:
Of course I'd like you to help me spread the word prior to Election Day about these School Board Proviso First Party candidates for District 209: Robin Foreman, Carla D. Johnson, and Robert “Bob” Cox.

Help us also in District 88 elect Yvette Ramirez, Daphne Walker, and Re-elect Tommy Miller.

In the Village of Bellwood, we're supporting for Village Trustee Edward Lezza, Jr., Philistine Murphy [sic], and M.C. Robinson.

The committeemen, Democratic and Republican, are responsible for appointing election judges. So, Moore has no official responsibilities or official relationship with the judges.

But like a desperate gambler Moore is trying to gain an advantage--any advantage--by bluffing. This is similar to Moore buying an advertisement in the Proviso East football calendar claiming he was still the Democratic committeeman after Rep. Karen Yarbrough had already beat him.

What do you make of Moore not listing his picks for the Village of Maywood and District 89? Do you think he's got a separate network he's working for his candidates in those races?

  • political observations from Bellwood said...
    Does Welch's and Gene Moore's policy satisfy the George Costanza criterion? In recent times Welch's and Moore's strategy has been guided by a new kind of doctrine, named after not its author but its exemplar: the Costanza doctrine.
    This doctrine, influential, recalls the classic episode of the TV comedy Seinfeld, “The Opposite”, in which George Costanza temporarily improves his fortunes by rejecting all the principles according to which he has lived his life and doing the opposite of what his training indicates he should do. As Jerry tells him: “If every instinct you have is wrong, then the opposite would have to be right.”
    Emboldened, he tries a counter-intuitive pick-up line on an attractive woman: “My name is George. I’m unemployed and I live with my parents.” At the end of their date, when she invites him up to her apartment, he demurs, cautioning that they do not know each other well enough. “Who are you, George Costanza?” the lady asks. Replies George: “I’m the opposite of every guy you’ve ever met.”
    The Welch and Moore policy pursued by the Welch,Bruno,Martinez,Cross,Mazzulla and Pasqaule satisfies the Costanza criterion: it is the opposite of every political doctrine the world has ever seen.
    In “The Opposite”, George breaches the most fundamental laws in his universe – for example, the age-old principle that “bald men with no jobs and no money, who live with their parents, don’t approach strange women”.
    Similarly, in its geopolitical incarnation, adherents to the Costanza doctrine cast aside many of the fundamental tenets they learnt at staff college or graduate school. Let me name a few.

    First, political resources are finite and should be directed towards your greatest priority.
    Second, take care not to weaken your intimidatory allies through poor politcal performance.
    Third, you get by with help from friends. Although the powerful are sometimes tempted to go it alone, political support helps determine the perceived legitimacy of an action, which affects its risk and costs. Building this support requires discussion and compromise. The opposite would be to spurn real negotiations, slough off your allies, reject agreements you do not like and declare that you are not bound by the rules that govern everyone else.
    Fourth, politics, like nature, abhors a vacuum. If two dangerous warring political groups are struggling for dominance of a region, maintaining a balance between them may be the least worst option. The opposite would be to emasculate one of them, thereby greatly increasing the relative power of the other.
    Finally, historians often cite the need for prudence in relationships, “First, do no harm.” The opposite would be: “Don’t think too much, just chance your arm and see what happens!”
    There is a moment in “The Opposite” when George Costanza pre-empts some hooligans making a ruckus at the movie theatre: “Shut your mouths or I’ll shut ’em for ya. And if you think I’m kidding, just try me. Try me! Because I would love it!”
    For a while, that kind of method worked – for both George and Welch and Moore and his allies. Then normal service resumed. The Costanza doctrine is all about hope, but when it comes to making your way, in the world, experience is the better guide.

  • Carl, Do you really think it's ethical as such to have someone's plagarized Material on your blog as a comment, or is it only because it's against your self-percieved enemies...

    Mary Harrell post Bad

    Slaming Moore and Welch Good

    Very Hypocrtical of you Carl, no wonder you will come in last place a week from today

  • Is not this commenter wishing to decieve the readers by proporting that this prose of his own, when in actuality it is cribbed from another writer and he just changed the names

  • The author should have posted a link, but it's within the realm of "Fair Use" (think sampling in music).

    If I get a complaint from the owner of the copyrighted material, I'll take another look at it.

  • I'm skeptical the post claiming to be from Mary Herrell was actually by Mary Herrell. If she calls me and says it was hers I'll put it up.

    But I don't like having people try to misrepresent themselves as being public figures they aren't.

    That was my concern with the post by someone claiming to be Mary Herrell.

  • Carl, You are very selective and full of shit...

    He clearly plagarizes here, changing the names of bush, Rumsefled, et al to suit his means and you do nothing about it

    You are terribly inconsistent, the same thing occured in the past with most likely the same author and you deleted it, but now that it suits your means, you let it go

    Sounds like clearly selective morality to me

  • Fair Use is a subjective portion of the law.

    Riffing on a national article to make a point about local politics seems to fall within "Fair Use".

    I've noted that you've dissented from my decision.
