“Just the Facts: Democrats have some great candidates but we also have some that make me want to go ‘WOOF’ like Robert Francis O’Rourke- too untelegenic to be president” by Chef Itzi Nakamura
SPRING SESSION 2019
BLOG POST #3,091 AT THE AICP-END
566 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020
We have a diverse slate of candidates seeking the 2020 nomination
Kihei, HI, 04-18-2019 Thursday: Aloha, friends, family, and followers of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, welcome. You know, the Democratic Party is fielding a very diverse group of candidates this year, all of them vying to win the inevitable grand prize of being the nominee of our party. We have some good ones, we have some middling ones, and we have some that make me want to go, “WOOF!”
Now, you know I am partial to Tulsi, I think she would make a fabulous president. Not only is she a military veteran, she also is a feminine role model who has the people of Hawaii standing firmly behind her. I think if she is able to navigate the challenging course of racking up enough donors and political backing, there is nothing she cannot do and I look forward to her taking the oath of office in January 2021.
Now, we have some others who are running that make me pause, wonder WHY the heck they are running for anything when they seemingly are a loser. The man of whom I speak is Beto O’Rourke, Robert Francis to be exact (we love using first and middle names here in the Islands like when I call my hubby, Chono, “Edmund Charles, come here and help me on the cooks’ line!- he comes).”
Now, Robert Francis (where did “Beto” come from anyway?”) is very untelegenic. As a woman, I can tell you that women look at factors such as this because we vote with our hearts, with our emotions as much as we vote with our intelligence. This poor guy is a dog, I hate to say it, but there you go and I could never pull the lever or push the chad for him.
Besides, being untelegenic can doom his chances. This can be the coup d’ grace in the modern political era. Not only does he look like a loser, he is a loser and if some of the things I hear people saying about him are even remotely true, like, uh, trying to push a green baby turd on his wife saying, ‘it’s an avocado,’ or eating dirt from the New Mexican desert, there is no way we can pick this guy to be our nominee.
Add to this the fact that he LOST to Senator Ted Cruz of Texas. Yes, he sought to unseat him in his reelection bid as senator from the Lone Star State and lost. LOST. Sure, he did not lose by much but why in heck would we want to choose a loser to be our nominee? It does not look good, nor does it smell good, sort of like a slop bucket left out in the sun a bit too long. Yccch.
Yet, there’s Robert Francis out there, stumping around the nation, asking his followers to HELP HIM with his campaign platform, you know, give me some planks so I can tell the rest of the nation WHY I am running and for what? If you have to ask the people who come to listen to YOU to tell YOU what you should be running on (besides open borders), why the heck would anyone waste a vote on YOU? It makes no flipping sense.
Now, we have heard rumors that Mayor Andrew Gillum of Florida, a man who lost in his bid to win the governorship of Florida in 2018, could be entering the race. A fellow Florida Mayor Wayne Messam from Miramar is already in the race and he did not lose his last race as Mayor Gillum has.
I sometimes wonder what the heck goes on in the minds of the Democratic Party hierarchy because I think it would behoove us if the people who were seeking HIGHER OFFICE did not lose the previous office for which, they ran. It makes no sense to me or to Chono. A loser is a loser is a loser, folks. The days of Richard M. Nixon are long gone…
One of the other controversial characters in the running is South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg. He is an openly gay man, which is okay, we are cool with it here in the Islands and have a large LGBTQIA+ population integrated into our society.
While I think ONLY bigots would quibble with him being gay (like the Republican Party who hates gays), I am not sure if our nation is ready for its first gay president.
We must consider our standing around the world and in these times of heightened homophobia, how would Muslim and Arab nations view us? How would they treat us? Would they break off ties with us or would they keep us at arm’s length? I am not sure but if Buttigieg does become our president, I think the milestone we will be setting could cause us increased problems around the world where bigotry resides.
Then, there are others such as Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris. I think neither one is a viable candidate as to me (and I feel bad saying it) both are phonies. The former claimed to be a Native American, something we all now know she is not, not even remotely so while the other one ‘ain’t down for the struggle’ being the product of Jamaican and Indian (dot) immigrants.
Add to that the fact that both seem to be ‘bitchy’ and one can see the turn-off factor for men who will be required to vote for them if they want our party to win the White House. It will be as it was with Hillary, loads of people will stay home on Election Day and Donald Trump will win a second term.
We must be smart, folks. Join me tomorrow and we will continue talking story.

I must say I am amazed that the AICP-END Blog would send up-and-coming Bakersfield, California, street artist, the amazing Simone to Maui to do some photographic portraits of me. We have moved in this direction since politics have turned millions of people against one another and it is important for us as employers and as private people with families to protect, that we begin covering our actual identities from those seeking to cause us problems. I must say, Simone has done a fine job and this is a caricature of me that meets with my approval. My husband and I live and own a restaurant in Kihei, Hawaii, and have also worked in institutional cooking at Maui’s premier hospital up in Wailuku.

WE SUPPORT THE NATIONAL RIFLE ASSOCIATION
FEATURED ALBUM OF THE DAY:
Steve Hackett released his third solo album on May 23, 1979, “Spectral Mornings,” to much acclaim. The guitarist now assembled a band that would support him on tour as well as on his studio albums. The group consisted of his brother John (keyboards/synthesizers/flutes), Dik Cadbury (bass/backing vocals), Nick Magnus (keyboards), and Pete Hicks (vocals). This is an excellent album demonstrating the musical growth the artist would achieve. We hope you will seek this album out at your favorite venue for nothing but the best in music as you will definitely enjoy it.
SPECIAL ALBUMS OF THE DAY:
Posted @ the Friday, July 27, 2012 Blog Post:
Another posthumous release by Spirit came out on October 25, 2004: “Live from the Time Coast 1989-1996.” The album features Randy California (guitars/vocals), Ed Cassidy (drums/percussion), and Mike Nile (bass) on the road between 1989 and 1996. There are 29 monumental cuts included here, each of which demonstrates that California (along with Robin Trower) were the sole heirs to the legacy of the late, great Jimi Hendrix. We urge everyone to use whatever source they do for the best in rock music. This recording is a definite must-own. Seek it out now.
Posted @ the Sunday, June 15, 2014 Blog Post C:
The FACES released a comprehensive 4-CD box set compilation on July 20, 2004, “Five Guys Walk into a Bar.” This album offered some joy to fans as it contained a massive amount of material plus lots of difficult-to-find extras that appeared on B-sides or were left in the can. The collection was compiled and annotated by Ian McLagan and is such a worthy addition to the collection of this amazing, short-lived band. One can only contemplate the massive heights to which, they might have soared had not Rod Stewart signed a solo contract before joining the band. Please seek it out, give it a listen, and add it to your collection- you will love it.
