Rod Tam sees the light; Abercrombie hears the music

Councilman Rod Tam is pitching himself as “Lightning Rod” on his campaign signs in his run for mayor.

The American Heritage dictionary defines a lightning rod thusly: “One that attracts and absorbs powerful, typically negative feelings and reactions, thereby diverting interest from other issues.”

I guess it proves the old adage that if you give a monkey a typewriter, sooner or later he’ll say something that gets it right.

Another interesting campaign slogan is Mufi Hannemann’s “standing tall for all of us,” a not-so-veiled reference to the fact that he’s about a foot and a half taller than his Democratic rival Neil Abercrombie.

Actually, that almost qualifies as subtlety for Hannemann. How long can it be before he entertains campaign audiences with Randy Newman’s “Don’t Want No Short People ‘Round Here.”

    Rod Tam must be Sum Dim “Lightning Rod”.
    Must mean he don’t eat at the same place twice.

    If I hit him below the belt, no low blow. His belt is at my eye level.

    Hitting below the belt in reference to hanneman.
