Schubert's Running for Mayor of Loop Land

While driving up and down Vance Jackson and West Avenue between Loop 410 and IH 10 earlier today, I noticed copious signs up for both Castro and Hardberger. Most of these weren’t yard signs, but rather the big 4X8’s that the campaigns put up at intersections. Conspicuous by their absence, were any signs for Carroll Schubert, nary a one.

Someone ought to clue old Carroll into the fact, that while its possible to raise all your money on the Northside, you have to at least ask somebody inside NE Loop 410 to vote for you, if you actually want to win. It doesn't take much to make the word liberal stick the word trial lawyer like bull pucky on a boot heal. But it takes more than that to be elected Mayor.

Schubert’s message of "potholes" has some play inside the Loop, but he doesn’t seem to want to taint himself with San Antonio proper. His aversion to being caught dead in any part of town older than 15 minutes begs the question, “What is he running for Mayor of?”

Carroll can’t just run for Mayor of Loop Land, it doesn’t work that way. If he wants to be Mayor of the Alamo City, eventually Schubert is going to have to ask someone who was actually born in San Antonio to vote for him. If he just wants to be Mayor of the carpetbaggers, someone ought to tell him the fate of scalawags around these parts.
