Bravo Zulu to Barry Loudermilk’s Communications Director, Dan McLagan. This presser had me rolling with laughter. Can every press release be like this?
I especially like “Bob in a clown suit” and the mention to the changing hair color. That was indeed a shocker at the Cobb Breakfast that morning.
Life on Planet Bob Has Loudermilk Campaign “Flummoxed”
Cassville, GA – The campaign of Former State Senator Barry Loudermilk today admitted that it has been “flummoxed” by Bob Barr’s doubtlessly genius campaign and admitted that Bob may have stumbled on to a weakness in the political system.That weakness? The violation of the previously assumed necessity of saying things that are either passably truthful, or at least consistent with each other.
“We’re flummoxed,” Loudermilk spokesman, Dan McLagan, said. “We never know if it will be liberal Bob, conservative Bob, open-borders Bob or Bob in a clown suit, that shows up from minute to minute. Even his hair color has changed during the campaign, and in a most unnatural and creepy way.”
Recent examples of what life is like on “Planet Bob” include:
Attacking Palin and Supporting…The Huffington Post?
A Twitter rant attacking conservative former Governor Sarah Palin one time per minute for four minutes, then touting a link to the super-liberal Huffington Post, which did a piece Bob liked (Huffpo for Bob?). In fairness, the article was also hyped by “Weed Watch” magazine who, in an apparent rebuttal to arguments about marijuana leading to memory loss, remembers Barr taking a lobbying gig for the pro-pot Marijuana Policy Project (MPP).
Holder and Barr Dealt into the Race-Card Game Together
Calling Barry a racist (usually the final act of a failing campaign) while Eric Holder – who Bob recommended and wrote a glowing recommendation for as Attorney General – was once again on television equating lack of support for President Obama as racist, and while staying silent as his Cobb County co-chair, Max Bacon, attacked a school board member with an ethnic slur, saying in a recent speech:
“I’m just disappointed in Tim. If he’s not man enough to come talk to me, and he has to go through her, Angelucci, that does concern me more than anything now. What’s that woman’s name? Angelucci? I don’t like arguing with Polacks.” [SOURCE: http://politics.blog.ajc.com/2014/07/14/brian-kemp-guns-and-run-off-ballots-wont-mix/ ]
Saying about Bacon the following, when he made him campaign co-chair:
“Mayor Bacon is well-known as a man of character and integrity, as well as an innovator and leader in Cobb County. He is one of the most successful Mayors in Georgia, and someone who understands fiscal responsibility. I am honored to have Mayor Bacon as a leader on my campaign team,” [SOURCE:http://gapundit.com/2013/06/07/smyrna-mayor-max-bacon-named-cobb-county-chairman-of-bob-barr-for-congress/ ]
Bacon remains Bob’s Co-Chair.
Barry Supports… Nancy Pelosi? Really?
Bob alleged in at the final debate and in an attack mailer that fouled the postal system yesterday, that Barry somehow supports Nancy Pelosi. Here is what Barry actually said; you decide if it equals support.
“The Democrats got Obamacare passed because Nancy Pelosi was willing to sacrifice her speakership for a cause. They achieved something historically unprecedented by doing that. No one wanted Obamacare. I think we’ve got to have leadership that is willing to do those types of things to start turning the nation around.” [SOURCE: MDJ, 7/5/2014]
You Have to Support House Leadership Because it’s Good for the District, But if it’s Bad For Bob, Attack them Instead
Attacking Barry for not promising to vote for Boehner for Speaker of the House because having leadership mad at you could hurt Georgia, while Bob attacks the new House Majority Leader for supporting Barry.
Aww Heck, Just Attack Everybody
Just this week, Bob has attacked leading conservatives like Erick Erickson, Glenn Beck, Karen Handel, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Constitutional Scholar David Barton.
Maybe Bob explained it best in the campaign’s final debate on Saturday when questioned about serial flip-flops on crucial issues like border security, gay marriage, and even being a Republican:
“I believe that we should never be afraid simply by some ‘artificial consistency’ that you keep talking about, to not go back and revisit laws that Congress has passed and President has signed.” [Source: GPB Debate, 7/13/2014]
