Glassman 2: Rise of the Chihuahua

It was a political fairytale: kid from the wrong side of the tracks, who worked three jobs to support his family from the time he was 12, while also putting himself through school, and then Harvard, and Harvard Law, decides to take on The Establishment, running for office against an established political icon.


No wait, that's not this story.

Anywaaaaaaaaaay, the question that's keeping Arizonans awake tonight is: having been "shellacked" by Sen. McCain, what will Rodney Glassman do now?

Roberto De Vido is a communications consultant, writer, cartoonist and jack of many trades. The former chief of Tucson Sentinel’s East Asia Bureau, he now lives in California (make of that what you will).

Rodney: Don,t you think it’s about time to be pointing your Bus in the direction of Five Points, Ca. That’s where your Mother Linda, and your infamous Uncles David and Martin are….They are one’s that stuffed you full of all the “PORK” that you have been eating!  Don’t you know that as a Jew that Pork is BAD for You ?? You’ve had your Fun with the Good Citizens of Arizona and with the City Council of Tuscon and Now my dear 2nd Cousin, it is time for you to pack it in and leave the Arizona Democrats and their party alone!  They don’t need another Psuedo Fresno Farmer to lead the Democratic Party in Arizona or any other State…Give it a rest Rodney and be a Mensch with your Pork-eating self!
Go back as you are an embarrassment to all that lay their eyes on You ...Your Family’s Lust for Power is abominable and it show’s Rodney. All the sheckles that fell from your family’s pockets did not help their lusting after political power one bit….Tell your rich Daddy to write it off and rejoin the Britz-Glassman Dynasty and forget about messing with the Hispanic Population of Arizona….They need a Real Democrat. Grijalva should really be embarrased for trying to pawn you off as a real Democrat, as boy, with all your Degrees, your PHD and your family’s general animosity for the Hispanic community will shine through to the people everytime…They are not stupid Rodney and all of the Britz-Glassman MONEY won’t make it fly….Get a Life Rodney and leave Politics to people with a little more mileage and who have a better grasp of why Middle Class folks are hurting in this day and time. I know that it is hard for you having grown up in a gated community and not really being exposed to what lies beyond the Gates of the Dynasty….Go Back Rodney and maybe you can be the Honorable Mayor of Five Points, a task that even you should be able to handle.
Your Cousin

“Sweet home Arizona, where the skies are so blue; sweet home Arizona, John it’s time to retire you.”
