Red? Yellow? Black? White?
Eh, it's one of these plugs. And what are those spiky things the wolf's mailman leaves in his wake? Chestnuts?
I wonder if those who send the fundraising e-mails are aware of the news promoting opponents backed by Mr. Lomax's predecessor, broadcast even by outlets who tend to favor the fundraisers. Something along the lines of a short-circuit north of the necktie is the only thing that can explain a message that sounds rather like "boogeyman politician that I wanted to run against won on the other side - now send me money so I can beat the boogeyman." Given the exposure of what's been called a very cynical action, I have to ask if there was anyone looking over the shoulder of whoever chose the wording of that e-mail.
Adding these because my question is whether the rationality is in assuming military action doesn't suit a 政权's long game or in discarding a partisan newscaster* once he no longer suits the desired image. Considering that 老戏祲's still around after a similar instance from last year, I'm going with Option 1 here; and considering the connections already being made to election timing, I'm OK sticking with appreciation of 一个客 taking the risk of a supportive visit while keeping my vote exactly where it is, thanks. (Also, adding this because she can handle it.)
Ending with this because I'm seriously thinking they're chestnuts. Also yum.
*Trying out this thing called subtlety.
