Write in Karen E. Petersen

October 22, 2006

We have no no good candidate running for State Senator. That’s a fact. Carper voted to let the President kidnap and torture his way to security, and Jan Ting wants to wall us in. Jan also wants to… hmmm… well, I’m sure there’s something, but we haven’t heard it yet. I don’t think it’s even worth mentioning Christine O’Donnell except to say that, if she took her candidacy seriously, she wouldn’t have waited until the last minute to run in the primaries, and again as a write-in after having given up the ghost.

With our sorrowful lack of trustworthy and capable candidates for the Senate race, I’m joining in with Dana Garrett, Nancy Willing, Jason, and others to write in Karen E. Peterson for Senate. Senator Peterson represents my district, the 9th, with a strct focus on what her constituents want in their government. Open government, re-regulation, rights for prisoners to be healthy, equal rights for the GLBT community, cleaning up the environment; the list just goes on and on. Senator Peterson is also not afraid to use strong words in making her points; she calls the Legislatures performance in deregulating the power company “pathetic”, and the Legislature exempting itself fro the Freedom of Information Act “hypocritical.” (link)

I’m fairly certain that we won’t be able to get Senator Peterson into the US Senate with a write-in. However, we can send her the message that we Delewareans want her to represent us on a national basis. What better way to do that than to tell her she already has our votes?

One more point to make. Although I want Senator Peterson to go into the US Senate, it will suck to lose her from the local Legislature. So, here’s a deal, 1st Senate District; elect Tyler Patrick Nixon, so Karen has the most worthy replacement in our State Senate. That way, we lose nothing and Delaware gains one more courageous and dedicated Civil Servant.

    This will catch on if we call in to the talk radio shows in greast numbers (or reapeat calls from small numbers!) an ask folks to do this

    It will not throw the elcetion (unfortunately) but it will show our arrognat Torture Tom that we want a DEM in office to represent Delaware, not a DINO.

    “Jan also wants to… hmmm… well, I’m sure there’s something, but we haven’t heard it yet.”

    That’s a hoot, but it captures him personally.
