Political advice from Cus and Sand Crab

Published: Wednesday, May 28, 2014 at 12:47 PM.

I read in your sister paper, the Panama City News Herald, that the Democratic candidate for Congress from Florida’s 2nd Congressional District has opened her campaign by issuing a position statement on the economy. It appears that she has a plan for the middle class and the small business person. Does that sound familiar like in Obama? What happened to the candidate that declared to represent all the people?

It was about here that my computer died but I would bet my collection of political buttons that she failed to mention that in her working years that she has never bought a paper clip, rubber band or produced a payroll. I’m sure she explained that she acquired her political savvy through osmosis. You see, her daddy had some political notoriety in his time.

I promise, the NSA didn’t help in my intercepting a communication a few days ago from two old friends, Cus and Sand Crab. It’s attached for you and your readers to digest. Enjoy and have a nice day.


Dear Cus,

Some say the little woman running against Congressman Steve Southerland is a very refined lady. They say that she been a keeping company in high society circles in Miami, Washington, D.C. and Tallahassee all of her life. Why she’s even lived in the Governor’s Mansion. Yep, I’m told she can hold one of those itty-bitty tea cups with the best of ‘em.

 The little lady wants to represent you and me in the Congress of the United States ‘cause she says she’s one of us. How can that be? I’ll bet she’s never ever cleaned a mullet, treed a raccoon, tasted squirrel head stew and I really doubt she’s a member of the NRA. She may have a problem convincing folks in this area of the state that she knows what’s best for what we want.
