Re:    One of Us? Who Be Us, Pray Tell?


Explanation:  In a local political campaign, one of the candidates plastered our valley with signs reading something like "Vote for Sharon Runner....she's one of us".  Presumably the intent was to make her campaign seem inclusive, but I didn't see it that way even though she was candidate of  "my" party:

Regarding the Sharon Runner "...one of us" slogan: I don't know who "us" is supposed to be, but I do know anyone who would put that on a sign is very likely not "one of me!"
