Jon Easter And Newcomer Vop Osili...Man-Crush or Dedicated Democrat? We'll Let You Judge!

OBSERVATIONS:  We debated long and hard about this post but when it was all said and done snarkiness one out with a few built-in compromises.  We found Indy Democrat's (Jon Easter) post last week, a bit over the top when it came to touting the Democrat candidate for Secretary of State Vop Osili. It kinda reminded us of a proud parent with a crap load of baby photos..."And here's Junior taking his first step, here he is with daddy's shoes on..."

Now we understand that Jon Easter is a Democrats Democrat and we give him his props for it, but damn dude it sounded like you had a little man-crush thing going on there (not that there's anything wrong with it).  This leaves us to wonder if there's anyone out there doing the same lovey-dovey photo-shoot for good ole' Charlie White.

Anyway we've had our say and just so we keep things fair, we'll acknowledge Jon's efforts to keep candidate Osili's name out here in the blogosphere.

And of course this post wouldn't be quite complete without a little music that seems to capture this special Easter/Osili moment in a special way.

  1. Man-crush! Hilarious! Keep it up IPSE! Lov you guys sense of humor. Funny without being brutal.

  2. great post. Jon did seem to be a little over the top. But he's a Dem and that's how they react with a clean articulate black man. :)

  3. Wow, it's amazing what a little Sunday afternoon post will do to generate something. You never know who's reading I guess.

    I just thought it was a great picture. You guys make me laugh, and it's good to see you back calling balls and strikes on local issues.

  4. come on Jon, they are good when it comes to snarky posting. And they do it with class.
