These are some of my opponents today as I my wife and I head to Nevada. I’m there to be a legal observer; she’s there to check out the beautiful desert bloom in Death Valley — and to protect me from my antagonists, some of whom are pictured above. (I’m a legal observer for the Sanders campaig at what I expect will be a large — maybe even huuuuge — caucus.)
Now prostitutes are only a small part of Hillary’s army of supporters here, just as attorneys from OC are an even small portion of Bernie’s. But if you look at the homepage of their group, HookersForHillary, you’ll notice two things (aside from the photos): (1) they actually have a pretty decent social critique and agenda and (2) their interests will be equally well-represented by Bernie. In fact, probably better represented, because Bernie will still believe a month, six months, and a year from now what he says now — and has, for the most part, believed for 30 or more years.
So as “political whores” go, I have to admit that these are some of the better ones. Let’s just say that in recent years in my home county, I’ve seen a lot worse. (Also a lot less literal.)
Now these particular women are from up in Carson City. I’m going to a place tody that’s equally famous for its prostitutes — which is why I suppose they weren’t going to send anyone without their better half — and I have to be ready for them to come out and try to influence votes at the Caucus. So someone has to block that — and I’ll do my best.
More dispatches from Nevada — possibly as emails to Vern, which he can use to update this — as the day goes on! Also expect some photos of what I hope is already a “superbloom” in Death Valley.
I’ll check in with you soon! To the ramparts!
