Dear Ce-Ce, Mike, and Robert,
I wanted to take time away from my busy schedule as mayor to thank you for all your efforts on my behalf. After the primary I was very concerned about my chances to be re-elected in the fall, but your efforts to mount a 3rd party write-in campaign for my good friend Ray is just the shot in the arm my campaign needs to guarantee success again in November. I couldn't do it without your support.
Together we can keep Allentown Moving Forward.
Mayor Ed Pawlowski

The above comment, meant as a parody, was submitted by Scott Armstrong. Scott is a partisan, and in his view my recent posts recognizing Ray O'Connell's write-in campaign is heresy. My intent here is not to once again analyze whom such a write-in campaign would benefit, but rather my position as a blogger.
I separate my personal political preferences from my blogging. I will not color my words to promote one candidate over another. I will not refrain from observations, even if they contribute to an undesirable candidate's victory. In the campaign there will be many mailings and promotions from the candidates and their surrogates, but this blog isn't one of them.
