Brady Seeks Interns

Jerry Brady visited the BYU-I College Democrats today and I'm happy to report that he is a great and humble man. I just had to put this post on, but I'll report more about his meeting with us later.

Brady is an easy choice considering his opponent. Esp. when you remember Otter's DWI's.

anonymous: i hope we don't base our political selection on such ad hominem considerations...I have yet to meet anyone with a completely clean slate.

i like brady, although his paper can get a little carried away sometimes...

chaucer: why don't you read my entire comment. I said he was an easy choice, "esp." which means especially.

I would like to vote for someone who doesn't engage in attempted murder, which is what DUI/DWI's are.

The Post Register gets carried away with what?

For a crime to be considered murder, malicious intent must be proven. In fact if someone were to kill another by driving under the influence, it would be vehicular manslaughter. Not murder. This conversation is stupid. Apparently you don't believe in repentance.

anonymous number 1:

I did read your entire comment; it wasn't that difficult. I fully understood the intent of what you were saying, and furthermore, what "esp." means. Perhaps I should clarify my response: it seems as though you are basing your voting preference, at least on this issue, as a measure of what you perceive to be good character. Your moral economy is saying: Otter has been convicted of DWI. Therefore, Otter = BAD public official. Now don't get me wrong, I favor Brady myself, but I don't know anyone who is perfect. Is Brady perfect? No. I hope there is more that we take into consideration than merely Butch Otter the ale-swilling-and-fast-driving candidate.
