The Kennedy Campaign

[image caption] Mark Kennedy and his campaign tell lots of "big fish" stories. Call and get one for yourself today! (image courtesy MarkKennedy.Com)

So I called the Kennedy campaign today.

Me: "Why is Mark Kennedy starting attack ads instead of informing the voters about his views?"
Them: "Some people might call them attack ads, but we're just following up on Klobuchar's invitation for people to examine her record."
Me: "I didn't major in political science, but I do know that when a candidate takes out an ad that only speaks negatively about their opponent that that's called an attack ad."


Them: "Well, Mark Kennedy is an independent voice in the House, and..."
Me: "13% of the time he is."
Them: "He is what?"
Me: "He's independent 13% of the time according to his 2005 voting record."


Them: "Mark didn't want to vote for a bill that allowed for drilling in ANWAR, but he wasn't going to vote against protecting (with body armor) our troops."
Me: "Did Mark chastize the bill's author for not letting the two issues stand alone?"
Them: "Of course he did."


Them: "We need to stay in Iraq for as long as it takes to win the war on terror."
Me: "About how long does Mark think that that will take?"
Them: "As long as it takes."
Me: "What does Mark think about the classified document that was leaked over the weekend that states that the U.S. presence in Iraq is making the world more unsafe and is serving to recruit new terrorists?"
Them: "We haven't seen that report."
Me: "It's all over the news."
Them: "Well, we haven't seen it."

I didn't bother to ask if they had heard about the Lindbergh baby or the Hindenberg yet. I apologize for the oversight.

Call the Kennedy campaign yourself if you like. Toll-free in the metro: 651.644.2506

Nice Job !!! How about the inaccuracies of said negative attacks ads. Amy received money from a "Liberal" group. That was the National Organization of Women. Why won't they want to support an intelligent women running for office. Amy was a lobbyist for 12 years. She was an attorney for a law firm and any time she was called to the legislature to testify she would be required to register as a lobbyist. Those are the rules. And how about Kennedy trying to pose as a CPA in some ads. When he failed to make payments to keep his license as a CPA he was told he could no longer advertise the fact that he is a CPA. Oops another over sight. No more rubber stamp puppets allowed in Washington. He have to many.
