This isn't a comment on this candidate's policies nor is it an endorsement or meant to spur any sort of political debate (which never ends well). This is just merely an observation about this candidate in Oregon running for U.S. Senate. His name is Steve Novick and he had a hand amputated at one point in his life (I don't know the story behind it). As a result of the amputation, he has a hook that he uses as a prosthetic. This has led him to adopt the slogan, "Hooked on Novick" and a website domain name www.votehook.com. Not to rest at mere slogans, he has also released campaign buttons with the following graphic: Absolutely amazing.
