Move over Todd Aken. Virginia’s Mike Dickinson (D) is ready to give you a run for your money in the category of Most Brainless Political Blunder of the Season. Dickinson is running against Eric Cantor in Virginia’s 7th congressional district.
Boasting an Alaskan-sized collection of toe lint on the strategic front – and apparently not much else – House candidate Mike Dickinson (D) chose to pick on the NRA and its supporters over the weekend, apparently hoping to resuscitate a campaign that’s running on life support. As reported by Robert Laurie on April 7, here’s what DemoLib Dickinson tweeted over the weekend:
To sentence #1 of Mikey’s tweet: You got it, babe. To sentence #2: Well darlin,’ you oughtta know.
Not content with that little bit of political suicide, Dickinson rushed in where angels fear to tread with a follow-up tweet tagging the NRA as a “god awful fear mongering group” whose supporters are “pure trash” and “have very low IQs.”
Someone misplace his copy of How to Win Friends and Influence People? Miss last week’s A.A. meeting? Taking lessons from Hillary What Difference Does It Make?
Don’t look now folks, but it’s also a two-fer! Without missing a beat, Dickinson manages to not only insult and potentially alienate a large chunk of his own district, but millions of NRA members nationwide! Well, yee-haw!
Sophomorism and stupidity aside, Dickinson’s antics should tell you something about where DemoLibs are as a party. Ditto Wendy Davis, Patty the moron Murray and Hillary What Difference Does It Make? Clinton.
Move over, SpongeBob!
Aside from the fact that slamming the NRA and insulting millions of members is about as politically savvy as appointing Patty Pork Murray to chair the Senate Budget Committee, Dickinson’s tactic is a tacit admission that his candidacy has failed to engender any real traction. Apparently he’s too busy trying to nail Jell-o to a tree to launch a serious campaign. Oh, and telling people he doesn’t want their support? Genius, dude. Sheer genius.
Note to Mikey: You may want to think twice before you start chucking spit wads at Godzilla. The latter has a tendency to bite.
Note to Patty Pork: Belay that last note. Some of us are just dyin’ to see you do likewise in Washington – just in case no one noticed you chair the Senate Trainwreck (Budget) Committee.
Move over some more, SpongeBob!
