Overselling Day

We received the periodic newsletter from our local Sterling representative last week, and it's pretty clear that he's been singlehandedly responsible for every newsworthy event in the world since 1921.

If you were to create a word cloud of its contents, it would just be his name in 128 point font, with a tiny swatch of prepositions and articles dwarfed around it. It's not clear that this newsletter is taxpayer-funded, but I'm hoping that it's a product of one of his shady fundraising organizations. The newsletter is even named after him, and it's probably that name recognition that's kept him popular in spite of the fact that he was stripped of all committee seats in 2013 for fundraising on government time.

The good news is that he's up for reelection this year, having procedurally survived last year's recall attempt. If he wins yet again, I'll either throw my hat in the ring in 2019, or I'll shake my head resignedly and continue living in Sterling being unaffected by his reign while silently judging the voters around me.
