But TMROs coverage of OKC mayoral candidate Ed Shadids campaign kickoff was breathlessly cantankerous. In a post attributed to staff, a story several weeks ago noted how details have emerged from Shadids rally that depict perhaps the most left-of-center political event in Oklahoma City mayoral history and portend an interesting campaign ahead.
Sounds like subversive shenanigans ahead, right? Perhaps a NAMBLA choir performing the catalog of Lil Wayne? An Anthony Weiner from-the-waist-down lookalike contest?
quite so madcap. According to one attendee, many of the participants
wore shirts that indicated they were members of the AFL- CIO or other
city employment unions, reported the blog. Others spotted included
local Hispanic activists, Muslim activists and gay activists.
One attendee even appeared to be wearing a T-shirt identifying himself as undocumented.
included a mime, a mariachi band and a performance poet, presumably
written by someone who was doing air quotes. Heavens to Betsy! Whats
next? Menfolk leaving home without their hats?
