I was referred to an interesting little blog yesterday. It relates to Michael Arcuri's campaign for the Democratic nomination for Congress in our district - and the campaign that he ended just a few months ago to be re-elected as District Attorney for Oneida County.
It's called Arcuri Stay Our DA!. As the name suggests, the blog represents what appears to be a growing movement among Oneida County Democrats to encourage Arcuri to drop out of the congressional race, and remain as District Attorney.
The person or persons who write the blog apparently feel that Mike Arcuri has an obligation to Oneida County Democrats to remain in the position to which he was just re-elected. The blog writes that Boehlert must go, but that Oneida County will be thrown into a huge political mess if Arcuri vacates his office to go to Congress.
The blog appreciates the worth of Arcuri as District Attorney, but casts its arguments rather in the language of a wife begging her husband to stay at home instead of running off after another woman. It's a got a point, though perhaps it plays the spurned good woman metaphor a bit much.
