Go Gordon - Chris Adams: A Regressive Vision for Carpetbagging Candidacies

My experiences with Craig Gs Bleeding farts have gone to new lows. When I noticed that the Craigmeister went hook, line and sinker for Chris Adams, well, that was a colon blow for me. I had to pull out my Fiber-Sure and begin mixing. Man, I hate to use these analogies, but at forty something, I have seen prettier faces get ripped by Charmin. Vote for Don Gordon. http://www.dongordon.org. Let the Sun Shine on Rogers Park. Don is a thirty year resident, who has earned the right to sit in City Hall and represent the 49th Ward.

I wondered, who is Craig G, anyway. What politicians roll his oats? Well, Craig, like many of us, found Kerry when Howard Dean got goofy, but I just could not ignore how Kerry's mannerisms became remiscent of the Gary Hart move that made JFK famous. I thought about Kerry's polished Vietnam boater's credibility challenge. In the end, I felt in the Kerry-Boosh deal that Americans were being forced to choose between worse and worst. Of course, the O'Rielly factor over at Fox claimed to have a soft spot for Kerry, as well, so go figure. Craig, you did not pick a winner in Christopher, IMHO. I will go down knowing that I voted my conscience, even if I needed to do some soul searching.

Chris A wears his photographs with Democrats, well. Yet Adam's politics were alleged to run Red as a Republican in heat. Sure, Adams was a Jimmy Carter page, but he was no DNC strategist. This guy appears to spend his days writing in Waukegan and living la vida conservativa. I am not a Joe Moore fan and won't post Moore's signs in my yard, nor allow it. However, I have Excedrin TM headache eyeballs when I think about Chris Adams in the 49th's Aldermanic chair. www.adamsforalderman.com. By his own admission, Chris has lived in the 49th for seven years. He now thinks that he is a Ward 49 guru. His platform is 'mo retail.' He has to have a different mindset and he doesn't, yet. A new vision with the wrong tinted goggles. Education, get it!

If Chris is a guru, then Sandy Goldman, www.andthatsmyopinion.com, is the Dalai Lama and I merely a fellow Kvetching monk in hiding. We certainly can drum a chorus of ohmmmmms for our omnivorous concerns. Chris A reports for Waukegan residents, part of Lake County which is a bastion for Bushicans in my opinion. Has anyone seen some of the political advertisements on 94 and 41? Scary! Chris Adams even supports an organization that arguably resides at the RNC Convention every four years. Yep, I have 'helped' coach at Warren Park B-Ball, too, but at least I have the nalgas to admit that I prefer Independence, carnal. I will not pose for the camera and overexpose myself. Chris, run as a Republican, maybe then we can begin to trust you, payaso.

In my opinion, if we had la votas, it would be a Don Gordon victory. I hope that Gordie gets more momentum and comes back for another try in a run off, if necessary. In the interim, we may be stuck with Mr. Hollywood, again, because I cannot see voting for Adams who hangs around with Phyllis Schlafly, among others. Although I find Phyllis to have an occasional reasonable thought; the world becomes rift with obnoxious people and less manners as public cussing has gone to innappropriate levels.

I just don't find the national platform that Adams stands on to have much credibility in our Ward. All of the other candidates are too one issued and short circuited in their approaches. Adams for retail; Ginderske for healthcare. Most of these issues don't focus on education or safety. Gee wiz, folks, have we ever bother to check our local ISATs? Armstrong? Gale? Jordan? Sullivan? Oops, didn't we short circuit our priorities, here? I mean most of the community has gone NCA, St. Margaret Mary, British School, North Shore, Roycemore, etc. etc. I call it brain death, folks, where are these venture politicians when you need them? Chasing the giant with toothpicks?

If Adams cannot stand on the solid ground level issues of his peers, then how can he stand for the interests of the 49th Ward . . .my two sense, not!

I plan to post as much as I can on Chris Adams. Perhaps, many support him. However, if J-Moore wins, then I regret that our community could not support one candidate, rather than create an oil slick starring 'the unpredictables.' That is how I summarize the 2007 Flock of political has beens, losers, and wannabes of the 49th Ward of Chicago. I understand Chef Didier also supports Don Gordon.

Foie Gras, anyone?

well said and let me tell you the BH Craig guy is not to be believed. Talk about shading the facts his blog is terrible. I agree with you regarding Adams, a total republican, though if you pay attention so is CraigG. Anyway enough about him. I've been in the ward less time than Adams, people tell me things have come a long way in (Moore's)16 years, some say things are not moving fast enough, if at all.

Moore has been very helpful to us and has our support. I will be watching like a hawk and have no problems pulling my support or admitting I was wrong when faced with real evidence.

I support the Alderman but with a short rope (insert joke here) Speaking of Howard Dean, Democracy for American supports Moore.

The final straw for me was when I heard statements that Moore was a Poll watcher. The claim that he was strolling nursing home halls during what I understood to be absentee voting seemed innappropriate. The allegations reported by Chris Gerhard appeared detailed enough to raise my eyebrows. It made me feel much more comfortable the Gordon campaign. In the current mode, there may be a run off. However, if the absentee votes are last, then Moore will have to deal with more publicity on his Nursing Home tours. Reasonable Ward Challenges reported to the Alderman's office demonstrate either two things; lack of will or an understaffed Ward. Foie grae politics are for Beverly Hills, not Rogers Park.

I have it from first hand accounts that Moore was in fact electioneering inside the polls and would not leave until a State's Attorney came and escorted him out. That is just plain SCUMMY. How anyone can accept that and vote for someone who openly and knowingly defies the law and fair play is beyond me.

I a not "a hater" but these actions by JM fill me with disgust!

Craig never endorsed Chris Adams. He kept his vote private.

In the end, the coverage of Gordon made me wonder about Craig. It also made me wonder about Moore. I hope more, not less, vote on April 17. I noticed a well attended open house for Naisy Dolar in the 50th Ward on Touhy after 5pm. What is going on with Gordon?
