A Soap Opera is right, Those readers who want a candidate that is not political savvy should take note here.

The problem is, folks don;t understand how to deal with journalists who so desperately want a story. The word beyond the message of the day is… I would refer you to XX who will give you the details on that issue, what is important is 999 and getting folks back to work.

Here’s what he emailed me:
