You know, some political emails are just so funny that you have to let them speak for themselves. I just got this gem from the Fenty Campaign:
Subject: FENTY CAMPAIGN SURPASSES 2,000 YARD SIGNS
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Adrian M. Fenty (D-Ward 4) announced today that his
mayoral campaign has delivered over 2,000 yard signs to residents in
all eight wards throughout the city.
Let me see if I’ve got this straight. Instead of talking about Fenty’s stance on local issues, we’re going to talk about his lawn signs. Right. Gotcha. Should I expect further hard hitting emails about Fenty’s jaunty cap collection? The number of bumperstickers on area cars? Number of buttons distributed at metro stations?
Or, are we going to talk issues like the homeless problem in DC. Unemployment. Attracting business to the area. Using public funds to build a sports stadium. Taxation. Representation. These are things you issue press releases for.
Not how many goddamn ugly-ass lawn signs you stick up across town. C’mon Adrian, I expect better from you.
