… yeah, you can say it is the well timed moderate votes recently and over the last several years that have pretty well placed her in the “sane Republican” and “moderate” categories, but never ever underestimate the personal touches. For example, most politicians, if they are worth their stuff, send out happy birthday messages to their constitutuents, mostly in the form of mass produced postcards or cards, like the one my State Representative Debbie Hudson sent me:
I don’t know about you, but when I sent birthday cards, I make sure to include my picture on the card as well. LOL. I don’t mean to be making fun of Representative Hudson individually here, because all elected officials do exactly the same thing. Stephanie Bolden, when she was my Representative before I moved last year, and Margaret Rose Henry, my state Senator, did exactly the same thing.
Well, this is what Cathy Cloutier, my State Senator, sent me:
It looks as if Mrs. Cloutier went to Happy Harry’s… er ah, Walgreens herself, picked out the card after laughing at a few others, signed it herself, put a individually printed home label on the envelope, and mailed it herself. Now that is a personal touch. So personal that I took care to black out her street address here for fear that it was not her office address but her home address that may not have been previously publicized.
