…Way to Go , Dumb – Dumb [#political gaffe]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,June 26th,2014

.. when you do a political commercial , you should do your homework …

.. otherwise , the opposing campaign will end up doing it for you ..

.. Alison Lundergren Grimes is trying to take out Mitch McConnell . When you go after the ” king , ” you need to ” kill ” the ” king . ” Otherwise , you get squashed . Grimes got squashed for a huge gaffe in her campaign ad ..

.. she wanted to carry the campaign message to McConnell . Fair Enough . However , when you do , where it concerns the coal business and coal mining , do not use a male model . It helps to use ” the real thing . ” Getting caught using a ” model ” is incredibly dumb and stupid , it makes her look juvenile …

… Political Blunder [Illinois Governor ‘ s Race] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,April 30th,2014

.. these days , you have to be very careful of your media … no matter what form it takes …

.. with all of the blogs out there [radio , tv , newspaper , philosophy , etc] … you cannot be careful enough …

.. unfortunately , Illinois Governor Pat Quinn had to relearn that lesson the hard way . He needs to learn and learn fast if he wants to have a decent chance of winning re – election this November …

.. [link] to the blog news ..

.. Quinn is trailing his GOP opponent , financier Bruce Rauner , and has probably one of the worst governing records ever for any Governor who has not been convicted of a crime . A columnist wrote a column comparing black Republicans to Jewish folks in Germany who collarborated with the Nazis . Dumb , isn’t it …

.. Boy , did it ever bomb . It created an uproar in Illinois’ Jewish community , especially in Cook County . They did not like the column as it was , and they disliked Quinn ‘ s endorsement and support of it even more . Quinn and his people quickly disavowed it , and withdrew the tweet . Unfortunately in the Internet Age , the damage has been done . Oh boy , has it ever …

.. Rauner is Jewish , I believe , and that stupid tweet will not help Quinn draw support of jewish Dems to his cause . They might even vote GOP , which may well pretty much cook Quinn ‘ s goose ….

… Go , Joni , Go [Joni Ernst , in Iowa (US Senate)] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,April 19th,2014

.. sometimes , a very good ad can become extraordinary …

.. so far , Joni Ernst has been steadily coming up in the polls …

.. [h/t — theRightScoop]..
.. [link] to the blog post …

.. a solid resume sure helps . An Iowa mother , a veteran of military service , a conservative , and a farmer [yes , even a pig farmer] …

.. an endorsement from a figure with national stature sure helps . Sarah Palin ‘ s endorsement may not go over well with DemoCraps , but her endorsement does wonders in GOP circles , especially with women . Also , in this race , her likely opponent helped contribute to the ‘ till …

.. her likely opponent , DemoCrap congresscritter Bruce Braley , made a colossal gaffe by making a very stooped attack on an Iowa institution , the senior Senator , republican Chuck Grasseley . Grasseley , who is one of 2 farmers in the US Senate , is not one to be trifled with . Braley attacked Grasseley , and looked stooped in the process …

.. in other words , Go , Joni , Go !! …

.. here is a [link] to get another look at her now famous ad …
