As the elites count their money over drinks, they're patting themselves on the back for the job they do in defining their opposition by lining up gadfly candidates to oppose them. Crazy Larry Vaughn filed today to run against Hogsett in the Democratic Party. He's the guy who can make some decent arguments during public testimony at City-County Council meetings from time to time, but who discredits his arguments by donning hats made from grocery bags and painting his face for reverse black face effect so nobody will take him seriously. Earlier this week, long-time Julia Carson nemesis, perennial candidate and Democrat-turned-Republican Jocelyn-Tandy Adande filed to run in the Republican primary. Republicans have yet to find a serious contender for the office they've held for all but eight years over the past half-century. No wonder Hogsett's campaign manager can't stop laughing.
Everything about this day is pretty hilarious.
