Campaign

Campaign manager Katrina “Kate” Kindling is striving against all odds to get Senator Marcia Brute into the White House.

Chapter Nine – Men

Senator Marcia Brute, having pilfered one of her campaign manager Katrina Kindling’s cigarettes, exhales a cloud of smoke out the fourth story window of the Brute for President campaign headquarters. Kate is pacing back and forth by the door of the locked office as the Senator butts out her cigarette on the stone windowsill she’s sitting on and mutters, “I hate men.”

“Listen,” Kate advises. “Your husband misspoke at that ACLU event.”

“He said ‘all cops are good’ to a room full of black men recently released from a prison they were in because of drug reforms he signed into law.”

“He’s a former President. We can’t take him off his own wife’s Presidential campaign.”

“He’s a buffoon and a liability.”

Kate mulls it over while tunking her cigarette pack and lighting one of her own “Then what if we go in another direction.”

“How’s that.”

“We campaign entirely for and to women. Ignore men altogether. There are more women than men in the world. We win the women, we win the White House.”

“Intriguing. But won’t that alienate a lot of male Democrats?”

Kate shakes her head, butting her cigarette out on the sill. “Most of them are pushovers. They’ll do whatever their woman tells ’em.”

Sen. Brute stares out Kate’s office window over K Street and the DC skyline in the distance. “An anti-men campaign.”

Kate nods excitedly. “We can call it Operation Death to Men.”

“I don’t think we need to go that far.”

“C’mon, it sounds cool.”

The Senator tilts her head to the side. “It does sound cool.”
