This lady has just added to my bucket list. I can’t rest now until I see her in a debate with her fellow candidates. Unfortunately, she’s running for mayor of Jackson, Mississippi, so I’ll have to rely on someone else to post footage on YouTube.
There may be a dispute over which moment in her candidate’s statement here is most endearing. Some would go straight to the “nuclear war” reference, and her confidence that marijuana possesses occult powers against the radiation.
Others might home in on malapropisms like “familyhood” and “mayortorial.”
But for me, the best moment is the one that’s just a beat too long for broadcast professionalism, when she turns her back to the viewer to display the backside of her hemp-themed T-shirt.
Unforgivably missing from the video clip: a reaction shot from the WAPT anchor.
