Delaware State Senator David Sokola Faces Competition From Republican Meredith Chapman In 2016 Election

Exceptional Delaware 2017

    I thought she was going to say she was like, soooo proud, because, like, she just got her pom pom pin as recognition for four years of cheerleading, two as the like, head cheerleader. Tee hee hee.

    Sigh. Dave probably won’t even print flyers. Sigh.

    Now now, boys — ixnay on the itchway talk. This was mildly interesting — a no-qualifications school board candidate endorsing a low-qualifications Senate candidate. Or it could just be a case of identity politics.

    On the bright side, she is a recent Fellow alumnus of Leadership Delaware — which might cause her NQ advocate to consider whether he can live with Sokola in education. She has also worked for Mike Castle on Capitol Hill (in communications; see below) which might predict a sensible bias in favor of flexibility when it comes to school choice, charters, state assessments of schooling effectiveness and other popular no-nonsense approaches to education.

    However, her education policy experience and general governing breadth is thin compared to Sokola. Digital marketing for UD, reporting for WHYY (but with no articles to be found after a “digital” Google search), board of the Newark Senior Center, and digital communications provided for local politicians during their campaigns. Other than Mike Castle, the only other politician she names as having worked for is our good buddy Chip “Alaskan RoadTrip” Flowers. Points deducted for even mentioning Chip.

    Sokola does need to pay attention. In the First State, anything goes.

    Gee, I’m so excited.

      LDC,

      Interesting observation. The challenger (Chapman) has a “truthy” “digital” intro video on FB. In it, she says that the district has “always been home” to her “in some way shape or form” and that education is one of her three priorities. She says she attended a private elementary school in the district, and her online resume says that she graduated high school from Avon Grove (PA). In the digital puff piece, she omits the Avon Grove factoid but takes time to say that she “coached cheerleading at Newark High School”. Which sounds like a volunteer activity of an adult rather than as an enrolled student. She clearly is aiming to leave us with the impression that she is a product of Delaware schooling, but between the private early years and the Pennsylvania secondary years I’m not sure she attended “any” Delaware public schools. Her NQ paramour has not enlightened us on these dodgy facts, blinded by his anti-Sokola fever.

      Despite her sensible support for right issues, she is playing fast and loose with the facts in one of her three “priorities”. Call her out?

      “Which sounds like a volunteer activity of an adult rather than as an enrolled student.”

      Uh, the 12 second intro above, which I desperately wish I could un-see, more or less obviates the possibility of adult conduct having occurred on the part of this, like, candidate. And I use “candidate” freely, like, because you have looked past the chirpy conduct and find, like, dodgy. A worthy aspirant to the fraternity, well, club, by virtue of the un-straight story that emerged.

      Thanks for the head up. This -might- be interesting. Might. Mere Quixote?

      JOHN!

      But for the whole thing becoming tiring, I was about to type at my last snark that maybe her plan is that by the time she reaches the age of majority, she hopes to become an infobabe, a Fox chick, an on camera reporterette, a cable news debatress sans portfolio, legions of which now dominate the professi-, uh, employment category.

      Now comes John, with a keen, incisive, and succinct observation rarely displayed by a Kilroy’s denizen, pointing to the single most distinguishing feature (yes, even more than tossed bleached tresses, tanned and powdered decolletage, (also tanned) legs to there (given an occasional sensual petting), and the hand-waving (only the pom poms are missing, think about it), squirming, chirpy, breathless and/or strident run-on, head tilted delivery of the “news”) of said members of the latest subset of the gender, the Quackers, that characteristic being Vocal Fry.

      Don’t know how far you’ve engaged the topic, sir, but the Quackers, defined by their Vocal Fry skill (add in Uptalk, Costal Breathing) in all the manifestations, have become the subject of serious study and analysis. Politely called “annoying” (so is smallpox, I suppose), the mannerisms, combined with a sound worse than fingernails on a chalkboard, not only causes many to change the channel, it (the sound part) has been proven to be physically damaging to the practitioners organs! One can only hope that Maria Bartiromo and all the Kardashians will wake up mute one day as punishment, first, and as a clarion call to all the Quackers who would be famous, our Miss Chapman included.

      Even LinkedIn, fast becoming Facebook for almost-adults, has posts imploring the quacking uptalkers to give it up. Interesting, most of what I’ve read, all criticism, by the way, is written by fellow members of the gender (as it has been traditionally defined, that is). I’ll look for my favorite from The Guardian.
