Speaking of strange vehicles dropping into unlikely places, all you DSW haterz have a new champion, per the Washington Post:
The man who landed a gyrocopter on the lawn of the U.S. Capitol has picked an opponent to target in his bid for a seat in Congress.
It’s Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the chair of the Democratic National Committee who also represents a district in Florida stretching roughly from Weston to Miami.
Douglas Hughes, 62, of Ruskin, Fla., in a court filing Wednesday declared that he planned “strong ground game for his campaign” and would “not engage in aerial civil disobedience.”…
Hughes said in an interview Wednesday he was “very deliberately targeting” Wasserman Schultz’s district because Wasserman Schultz was the “poster child of establishment politics on the Democratic side” and had “done a horrible job as chair” of the party. He said she seemed to favor particular candidates and that it was problematic that she had scheduled fewer presidential primary debates than the Republicans, including some on Saturdays.
“I want to get the money out of politics and return the power to the voters, rather than the connected voters and the wealthy,” Hughes said. “That’s what I flew for, and that’s what I’m running for.”
Spokesmen for Wasserman Schultz did not immediately return email messages seeking comment…
The Spousal Unit and I have appropriated the custom of going out for Chinese food, and maybe a movie, on Christmas Day. We also take care to arrange our calendars so that we don’t have to leave the house on Christmas Eve, because there’s too many desperate crazy people running around out there.
What’s on the agenda in your neighborhood(s)?
