HCDP and the Ad-Hoc Committee for Judicial Candidates

You gotta love Marc Campos. Why? Because Jesus said so. Marc enjoys an audience statewide thanks to our mutual friend Carl Whitmarsh. I hope Marc gives Carl something really nice for Christmas this year. If it were not for Carl, Kristen Mack may have stayed in Houston, cheering on her favorite politico who's never been elected to anything.

But I digress. Campos' Daily Commentary is like that car accident you pass on the way to work some mornings. You just can't help but look sometimes. But what everyone must understand is that Campos is often deliberately misleading in his postings. Every word of "commentary" serves a purpose. Don't believe everything you read.

Today, Marc goes after the Harris County Democratic Party and Chair Gerry Birnberg along with the HCDP Ad-Hoc Committee and it's chair, Dave Matthiesen.

Marc wants you to believe that he knew nothing of this committee. I'm a lazy blogger, but for shiz & giggles, let's peruse Daily Commentary for his thoughts on the Ad-Hoc Committee and read his whiiiiiiiny posts about how no one called him. He wasn't invited or consulted. Wah.

Gerry and Jamaal were the first to let us all know about the hours and hours of time that Dave Matthiesen and the committee graciously donated to put together a solid group of candidates for the 2008 Election. Thank you, Dave. And Frume. And Judge Rincon! Thank you, Gerry, for showing leadership in making sure that every community was represented on the committee and on our list of candidates. You did a great job.

Marc knows about all this. It's his job to know. And if you believe for one second that Marc is sincere in his outrage at the Party and the stellar group of Democrats who served on that committee, then you have been had. What I want to know is why someone in his position would antagonize Democrats like Dave Matthiesen and other donors and friends of the Party.

UGH. This post about Marc Campos took away 20 minutes of my life that I'll never get back.
