Notes from Life, Etc.

  1. For what it’s worth, my Google account is still all partially locked up — it’s been a week now. I can read email, but haven’t tried sending any from it, so I’m using my Tutanola account. My Blogger account is also still locked up (that’s what started this mess in the first place), and i haven’t received any response to my query about it.
  2. I went to the Election Night Party – Governors Johnson & Weld 2016 at the Hotel Albuquerque –
    1. No buffet like 2012, only ordering from the menu. They did have three bars, a DJ and a dance floor in the party hall, though.
    2. Anyway, I talked with Blair Dunn, Burly Cain and Aaron Henry Diaz tonight — we have three prospective candidates for U.S. Congress : Blair Dunn for CD 1, David Clements for CD 2, and Michael Lucero for CD 3.
    3. Aaron wants to do a matanza (sp? — Mexican pig roast) sometime soon and talk about running candidates for local school boards.
    4. Burly was winding down from the campaign and said that he will be at the next CentCom meeting.
    5. Also, Weld gave a halfway decent speech — no “vouching” for Clinton, or any other of his nonsense that we saw during interviews and the CNN town halls. Nielson must have put a leash on him. Maybe Nielson didn’t want to see the stage rushed by a pissed-off crowd? For what it’s worth, a friend of Blair’s did yell “Benedict Arnold” once and was chased away

      Then Gary gave his speech — basically, “thank you for all your effort and support.”

    6. I think those parts of the event were video streamed to Facebook, possibly YouTube.
    7. After the party officially ended, I chatted with Wes Benedict from the National HQ for a bit in the bar, told him about Woodruff. He said that Gary probably would have gotten just as many votes if he had run as a radical and ran loud and proud, but instead, Gary caved in a few times. He also said that he’s seen lots of LP candidates cave in like that.
