    Goliath also got it on the down Low that Zach Payne,  currently the second youngest Jeffersonville City Councilperson (from whom we haven’t heard a peep since he got elected) is going to throw his hat into the race on the REPUBLICAN  side.  Here’s an NT photo of Zach with fellow upstart, Matt “The Kid with the big Game”  Owen:  (Photo by Kevin McGloshen)
    Mr. Payne is going to be running from the Republican side of the ticket,  Crum from the Democrat side.

    🙂 🙂 Heh…..heh…heh….
    Now G-Dude,
    don’t be ‘TEPID’!
    ….THE “litmus test” must be consistently applied.
    Only fair.

    The continued “forced litmus test” for this
    Recorder’s race now must be
    the “gay marriage” question!
    🙂 🙂
    Kinda, sorta…..

    A would be rival to GAW,
    the CCC,
    seems to have hit a snag
    over the “new fangled damanded litmus test thing”!
    It seems JeffResident said on the CCC:

    “It’s completely, 100 percent useless as a litmus test, unless you’re willing to apply it to all local officeholders. Since the original person who drummed up the question admitted he’s a Democrat and would probably vote for Bottorff anyway, I don’t really see how it’s relevant in any fashion.”

    Then Vicki pointed out on the CCC:
    “Don’t believe he lives in Indiana.”
    That was in reference to the ‘Toon
    personage who originally started the newfangled gay marrage “dmanded litmus test thing”
    on the CCC.

    Then in question to Vicki’s correct statement
    of the trouble starting ‘Toon’s legal residenence
    and thus legal voting location,
    the Great GG herself asked
    GG properly wanted to know who is it that Vicki
    noted she doesn’t believe lives in Indiana
    and thus cannot legally vote in Indiana.

    Subsequently on the CCC,
    Vicki replied to
    GG’s question as to whom Vicki
    was referring that she (vicki) doesn’t believe
    “he” legally resides in Indiana.

    Vicki posted in reply to the CCC’s all powerful GG’s question
    “Mr. Petsy” (sic),
    meaning Mr. Pesty humself!

    then after some secret unknown deliberation
    non-disclosed comptemplation,
    the all-powerfull GG
    posted on the CCC:

    “Pesty’s whereabouts have nothing to do
    with this thread and I would appreciate it
    if you would not speculate
    on where he
    or any other Chatter member may live.”
    Say what?
    Hmmmm….It just gets weirder!

    In summation:
    First we have a demand
    of a strange “litmus test question thingy”,
    done humorously by a ‘3,000 year old’
    (and possibly getting senile) very old ‘Toon Giant
    The question is in reference to a “possible matchup”
    for 2014 in a Clark County political race.
    Then Pesty, a well known known sock puppet
    and agent provocateur,
    links to the GAW and involves the CCCers.
    Subsequently, Vicki properly questions
    the voting residence of
    the cartoon character/provacateur , one ‘Toon “Pesty”.
    Next, the GG, who has NO time for uppity
    Cartoon Characters,
    places a stern ccc edict on
    comments in relation
    to “County of Residence”.
    Presumable this new edict is
    in reference to voting residence
    and the eligibility of Known Cartoon Characters
    to cast their ballots.

    (For the record, the GG
    has had to previouslu dicipline these here
    “Known Cartoon Characters” before!
    She has dealt with the likes of Pesty, Goliath,
    K-Fetz, NSBMH, and others upon occasion!
    Dang ‘Toons!
    Always underfoot!
    the Pesty, GG wants to know to who vicki is makeing reference, and then the GG sternly warns the CCers about inquiring the leagal voting residenc of
    and infamous agent provacteur,
    takes the G’s original question:
    “Goliath likely to make a number of smart alecky comments about this here race. But first Goliath want to know where these here stand on GAY MARRIAGE?
    First one to answer gets Goliath Credit.”
    and mischievously links it to the stern GG’s CCC blog
    and then the CCcers get castigated for
    asking questions about the
    leagal residence
    on the Pesty!

    So, if ‘Goliath’ and ‘Pesty’
    are “cartoon characters”,
    They can’t legally vote anyway.
    There legal residency is questioned
    and their real personess as well.
    They don’t really “live” anywhere,
    because they do not really exist?
    Well, maybe they could vote
    in Chicago, Florida, or Philadelphia though!

    When do we get the correction ability
    and the picture posting ability?

    Meh. Regarding Payne. (Thank GAWD we’ve actually got some YOUNG folks on the council.) Actions speak louder than words. I wouldn’t speak at council meetings all that much either. But dude isn’t afraid to vote against the majority.

  16. April 9, 2013 at 12:07 am

    Isn’t the County Recorder the most BORING job ever?

      First time you’ve been right about something…Congratulations

  20. April 11, 2013 at 7:14 pm

    For the Record: I confirm that yes I will be running for Clark County Recorder in 2014. I am very excited to join the local political community, have been waiting my whole life for this opportunity. I think it’s awesome that anyone wants to run and work as a public servant for our community so my hat is off to Mr. Payne. Oh, and I 100% support equal rights for all including gay marriage. Regarding the comment that I look like Mike Hutt, no comment 🙂

    Happy Campaigning!
