You may remember back in the day when there was local talk radio in El Paso that a woman named "Stephanie Townsend Allala" would pop up on air all the time. She's a former TV news reader, winner of the marriage lottery and now a sub-par attorney. She's desparate for some attention and looking to try and make a power play with the anti-baseball crowd.
The El Paso Times reports on the activities slated for Monday at City Hall HERE.
Allala must be missing her past appearances on talk radio where she'd talk faster and louder than anyone who disagreed with her very naive view of life and politics. Having been blessed with good looks and the gift of gab, she's made quite the life for herself. Winning the marriage lottery didn't hurt either. Unfortunately for her, that's not enough. She's got to try and become some kind of political organizer to keep her name out there. Too bad it's just going to end in embarrassment.
There's a legitimate movement of folks upset about the baseball stadium and city hall deal. The usual suspects are all vying for control of that group. There are always egomaniacs looking for a new cause with its built in minions to manipulate. Allala is just the newest one to the game.
She's about to find out that she is about as bad of a community organizer as she is at other things. Her bombastic, in your face style won't play well when the audience isn't captive. Facts are not her friend. Hell, she said this "I believe there was a violation, if not in the letter of the law, but the spirit of the law was broken." It's a laughable thought coming from someone who doesn't practice law and an extremely disturbing one coming from someone who does.
I do, however, like watching flaming liberals act like right-wing republicans when it suits their ambition to control others. Remember, direct democracy (vote on everything) is a conservative ideal, not a liberal one. If you're against the stadium, you're taking a popular conservative stance in this case. If you're for it, you're a liberal - at least for the moment (I'm a liberal in this case).
At least she'll still be rich and pretty after her "Occupy" party goes nowhere on Monday. Had she done her homework she'd know that nobody ever shows up for these type of things at City Hall. How many people have promised to march on City Hall only to have a handful of the usual suspects show up? Too many to list.
I'd wish her luck, but it wouldn't do her any good. Maybe she ought have coffee with Tom Brown - the last guy to do anything of note with his minions.
