Dear TN GOP Party (and you, Bill Hobbs)February 27, 2008 - Author: newscoma - Comments are closed
You know, I live in this state. I’m a native of this state. And, you know, I’m probably just as well-traveled and well-read as you are, Mr. Hobbs.
And right now, much of the country is looking at our state because of your press release about Barack Obama which is absolutely the most amazing piece of crap I’ve ever seen.
Your words aren’t mine. If you want to bring people over to the GOP party, are you really pulling stunts like this?
Wait, you are.
Do you have any idea how asinine this is?
I live in this state and yet you’ve smeared it about with one of the biggest hack jobs I’ve ever seen.
Could the next time you write something like this, could you please remove the name Tennessee from it?
I don’t want to be associated with it and no one should have to be. Even Lamar Alexander is embarrassed.
Updated 4:58 p.m. CST: Lee Pitts, spokesman for U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN), has issued the following statement:
“Senator Alexander has talked with Robin Smith, and she is removing the release and the photo from the website. She and the senator agreed it could be easily misinterpreted, taken out of context and considered inappropriate.”
Updated 4:04 p.m. CST: Crystal Benton, a spokeswoman for the John McCain for President campaign has issued the following statement to Tennessee media:
“Senator McCain has made clear that he rejects these sort of tactics and will campaign on his record.”
But it’s not our embarrassment. We are just living with your actions, Mr. Hobbs. As Tennesseans, we get to see Tennessee smeared all over the web, the TV and the blogosphere.
Thanks (and know I don’t mean that and it goes to Robin Smith too.)
Is bad attention better than no attention at all?
I would say in this case, no.
Dude, you may have won the official Tennessee Wanker award for the year and it’s just February.
And, yes, I said Tennessee.
