In addition to joining us for Citizen Outreach’s monthly First Friday Happy Hour last Friday, former Arizona Congressman J.D. Hayworth, now running in a GOP primary against Sen. John McCain-Feingold, stopped by for an interview with our friend Jon Ralston on “Face to Face.”
Ralston noted that J.D. was in town to join us for First Friday, to which J.D. responded, “Chuck Muth is an old friend of mine and (I’m) always happy to come up and visit our neighbors in Nevada.” To which Ralston joked, “Be careful of Chuck Muth. He’s a dangerous man.”
To quote Maverick from the movie Top Gun, “That’s right! Ice…man. I am dangerous.”
Tomorrow, at Caesar’s Palace, former Alaska governor Sarah Palin will deliver the keynote address at the Wine & Spirits Wholesalers of America’s national convention. Immediately following that speech, Dave Schwartz, the campaign manager for Nevadans for Sensible Marijuana Laws (NSML), will offer Palin $25,000 to deliver a similar address to supporters of a regulated marijuana market in this country.
Who wants to bet $25,000 she doesn’t take it?
Nathan “Li’l Nate” Taylor, a gadfly GOP candidate for Assembly District 13, recently published an eye-popping “Open Letter” to potential primary voters on his campaign website in which he states, “I’m not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, and yes, I’ve made mistakes.” To which those who know Li’l Nate are likely to say, “Wow, what an understatement.”
Li’l Nate writes that he’s “saddened by the “politics of personal destruction” and “negative campaigning” – and then proceeds to destroy himself by telling everyone how he’s filed for bankruptcy, got busted for reckless driving, and various other “life challenges.”
Li’l Nate, while declaring he will “always be real with you,” left out a whole lot of stuff – including that disaster of a Young Republican convention he ran into the ground some years ago and his threat to go nuclear on Nevada GOP elected officials if they didn’t bail him out. But I’m pretty sure if his opponents ever determine that Li’l Nate is a threat and would actually have a chance to win, all of Li’l Nate’s skeletons will come bouncing out of this closet.
