A few weeks ago in the triCityNews, Dan Jacobson called CD-6 GOP candidate Anna Little "Sarah Palin with brains."
I enjoy quoting Jacobson because he says such outrageous things that I am able press the envelope and still come off Republican.
Jacobson is the only other writer paying any attention to CD-6. I'm covering the primary because I want to send Frank Pallone off to his new career as a lobbyist. Dan's covering it because he wants to mate with Diane Gooch and screw Mikey out of $3.2 million dollars, so he says.
I doubt Jacobson really thinks of Little as "Sarah Palin with brains." I think Dan would probably like to mate with Sarah Palin too. Anna just doesn't provoke those kinds of thoughts. That's no commentary on her appearance. When you're around Anna Little you're either thinking about what difference you are going to make or you're trying to figure out how you are going to stop her from making the difference she is going to make despite your best efforts.
And, from the looks of the photo that James Hogan sent me from the Shore Shot Pistol Range, today is probably the first day that Little ever fired a gun. Hogan tells me that Little shot his sw686, a .38 special and from his barretta 92fs. I don't know what any of that means, except it must have been loud.
Hogan says he'll send more photos later.

"MMM is a great source of insider gossip and news in the conservative wing of the Republican Party and the Tea Party. I don’t agree with everything I read, but I keep taking a look- it is definitely entertaining. However, MMM would be better and could have far greater credibility if Art Gallagher didn’t display his biases quite so obviously and ran an unbiased forum for discussion.
