Here’s the oft-repeated contention about District 3’s gaffe-prone, appointed interim rookie Supervisor Julie Christensen – she:
“…helped design the KitchenAid candy-apple-red mixer.“
And that was her accomplishment what’s offered as a substitute for her not having elected experience. (NTTAWWT, I don’t oppose her for that reason. I oppose her for being a lackey (past, present, and future) of area billionaire Ron Conway. Incidentally, this lack of electoral experience explains why she didn’t learn lessons she should have learned (about how all mics are hot mics etc etc etc) almost a half-century ago, you know, as an intern…)
All right, SPOILER ALERT: Here’s the Model K from all the way back from 1937, from before when you, Gentle Reader, and even she were even born.
There it is – it’s the same basic thing today as like seven decades ago, and look, it’s got the same accessories port (a kind of power takeoff (PTO)) up front such that accessories made for this Model K back in the 1930’s will work on your brand-new mixer.*
All right, turn out the lights, the party’s over… OH WHAT’S THAT, GENTLE READER? You say her claim to greatness was merely that she “helped design” the particular candy-apple red model?
Well, let’s see, what you’re saying is that she was in some meeting and she said, “How about red?”
Does this kind of thing really make you a Designer?
Hey, colors! When did KitchenAid get lots of colors? It was the 1950’s, I’m srsly.
So she “designed” our KA mixers by suggesting not the idea of various colors, but one particular shade like decades and decades after all the real work was done and that’s her experience what’s going to empower her to enact the longtime Republican Ron Conway (oh yes, Ron Conway, right away, Ron Conway, oh it’s an honor to finally meet you, Ron Conway, oh you’re so clever, Ron Conway) Agenda for all of Frisco?
Hey, look. I’m going to design a KitchenAid, like right now. Here’s my mock-up. Isn’t it bold and brassy and oh so au courant and won’t the young hipsters love it?
SURPRISE! I didn’t greenlight this metal finish at all. But it’s a real thing, born in the, ahem, fifties.
Perhaps JC can come up with another way to impress the soccer moms of D3?
Oh, no matter, Aaron the Giant has a Posse, see?
We’ll just have to wait and see if they‘ll turn out, on and before Election Day…
*It’s kind of an amazing company – KA sends all its returned items back to the factory to see what went wrong (there’s your quality) and then they offer it for sale at a discount. I bought mine new from the Costco – I think it was $100 off or something, you can’t beat that. The one on sale now** is tiny – doesn’t seem all that good a deal, oh well.
**Yes it’s bright red but not even Ron Conway hisself would claim that JC invented / designed the color Admiral Red
