On Political Campaigning

You take the high road, I’ll take the low road. A decision was made yesterday that the candidate does not denigrate his opponents in the Democratic primary. But that the campaign team is allowed to do it. 

A gem that emerged – and has already been called racist has to do with Candidate Clay Pell and his bride Michelle Kwan. 

Now Kwan is U.S. born and a citizen. But her ancestry is Hong Kong aka Cantonese. So the joke was made that Clay Pell becomes Peking Pell because we know how the Cantonese love their empires. 

Now we just need to come up with ones for Providence Mayor Angel Tevaras and General Treasurer Gina Raimondo. What shall it be?
