My Most Frivolous Reason Ever to Oppose a Candidate?

A little less than two years ago, I wrote the following:
Meet Your Legislators - Brad Lager

I was driving back from a visit to St. Louis yesterday, when a gas-guzzling SUV blew my doors off. Blasting down the road at 85 or more, zooming up to within a couple feet of the rear bumper of a car with Iowa plates, the driver could not be bothered with the safety of himself or others.

Brad Lager, if you're going to drive like an arrogant prick, you shouldn't drive with your "R-04" plates.
Nothing I've read or heard about him since has altered my opinion that he's not the kind of person I want to have commuting to Jefferson City.

Nothing frivolous about thinking Lager is an asshole - that's just clear thinking.

Wow - there's a "scandal" worth remembering more than a year later. Beth Gottstein drove a car with Iowa plates!

Might it be time to dust off some of the older items on your knickknack shelf of hate?

pointing out that Gottstein was driving a car with Iowa plates when you wrote your incredibly interesting post about incredibly bad driving is hate? Now that is funny. Good one Dan.

And, wasn't the post a rerun itself?

Now it all makes sense. Dan thinks hate is pointing out a current city council person drove a car registered out of state(avoiding pers prop tax). Now I understand why he calls those who point out all the misteps of Funk as haters too.

Talk about lowering the bar.

Hate might be a bit strong of a term for me to have used, but someone who even remembers that Gottstein drove a car with Iowa plates is more than just a little bit "off" in the head, don't you think? Really? And then for someone to raise that "point" a year later in a thread about an entirely different issue that mentions Iowa plates - that's just kind of unbalanced.

Maybe "hate" was the wrong term. Batsh*t crazy might be more fitting.

But how do you address the fact that your own post was digging up a 2 year old incident?

It's the only time I had written about Lager, regarding my only experience of him.

Notice, I never brought it up when some morons were trying to generate an issue out of Gottstein driving a car with Iowa plates. Why not? Because one has nothing to do with the other outside of a strange and obsessive mind.

I agree that the two have nothing to do with each other.
