I'm coming down on the side of the argument that this was deceitful. He knew that others would view his twin brother as himself, and that was just fine with him.

Today, they will appear on ABC's "Good Morning America," CBS' "The Early Show," NBC's "Today" show and CNN's "Crossfire." Appearances are scheduled for "Inside Edition" and "Dateline NBC."
They may even fly to New York to be guests on the Late Show with David Letterman next week...

(BANG!!!!) That was the sound of Schubert and Hardberger shooting themselves in the foot....


Amusing fallout from this. Thanks for pointing me to that, Mike.


This is the first time I've seen Schubert's quote about Joaquin waving...

What the heck does he expect? Who the heck is ever on a parade float, and DOESN'T wave? Was he supposed to wave MOST of the time, but stop whenever the announcer said "Julian", or mentioned the city council? Maybe we could make it like a game of musical chairs - "Oh, sorry, you were still waving when I finished the name, you're off the float!"


Yes, Joaquin waving while on the float is hardly evidence of any duplicity. That's what everyone on a float does. This is one reason why I think this event was ludicrously overblown.


Old stuff I know but that float thing was the first time I ever heard of the Castro twins. And it left a bad taste. Of course they were trying to fake out the voters. Before the twins realized it was going to be a national scandal, Julian admitted that Joaquin stood in for him because he had other plans. If that's not intent to deceive, I don't know what is. I'm glad Julian lost and I hope Joaquin follows. Those boys need to grow up before they show up on my doorstep asking for a vote.


This shows very poor judgement and I cannot believe San Antonio just voted Julian mayor. I think I have to move now. My only consolation is that the voter turnout was barely 11%.
