Flashback

Ida Ruben is running for Maryland state senator in my little town. This is the actual photo that is posted throughout my 'hood on all of her campaign signs:



When I first saw it, I thought it was a joke but it's completely legit. I may vote for her based on sheer chutzpah and the love of that bun.

Rock on Ida!

Tell me that's a current photo and not one taken in 1973. That would make it even better!

She sure is purty. That bun on her head makes me hungry. It's like a big cinna-bon up there.

It almost makes me want to move there just to vote for her. I love it!

Forget the bun! Those eyebrows alone would get my vote!

Monc, it's an old photo but she hasn't changed too much. Go Ida Go!

Oh my god I LOVE THIS PICTURE.

It makes me want to write a short story about her.

Minge said...

I want to be her.

Hate to rain on the parade guys, but that "bun" is her attempt at eccentricity - like Tony Williams' bowtie. These things are meant to make them seem more human, but Ida Ruben is "the man" -- and not in the good way. She's a machine politician running against a progressive (see raskin06.com) - but I guess the bun is pretty hot!
