Former Harris County Judge Ed Emmett hasn’t recovered from the loss in 2018 to County Judge Lina Hildago providing a sour grapes interview to Joe Eisenbaum of Click2Houston
Eisenbaum: “What’s your best advice moving forward?”
Emmett: “The most important thing now is to say, ‘Hunker Down’. Saying ‘Hunker Down’ makes you look like everything is under control, you have whatever is coming under control, like when I said ‘hunker down’ when hit by Hurricane Ike and Hurricane Harvey although hunkering down didn’t work out for many.
Actually, that isn’t what he said but for many just mouthing a stupid saying like ‘Hunker down’ is enough for them to declare someone is fit for office. It’s as if that is actually a strategy. If only it was that easy. For Ed it was. Instead of reaching out to Judge Lina Hidalgo, to provide his wisdom from his years of service, he hunker down with the media.
Eisenbaum: “What’s your best advice moving forward?” Emmett: “The most important thing now is to say, ‘OK, what can we do better?’ That’s always a learning experience, and the professionals in the county will do that.”
That is what he really said. Here is my advise. Shut up.
