How to blow an election with a single Tweet
They say that any publicity is good publicity. Actually, the original quote comes from Irish poet and author Brendan Behan (1923-1964) who said, "There is no such thing as bad publicity except your own obituary.". However, in many cases bad publicity is just that; bad publicity.
Someone should remind Trish Causey of this.
Trish Causey is an artist and grassroots activist, a single mom running for Congress. According to her, she wants to be the first woman to represent her state in Congress.
That 's all well and good. Trish Causey is also a Progressive Liberal Democrat, who thinks all Conservatives are rich fat cats or at the very least puppets of the rich elite.
When not trying to oust the current Congressional Representative in Mississippi District 4, Republican Steven Palazzo (who won his last election in 2012 with 64.1% of the vote), Trish hosts a website called Aroused Woman where she seeks to sexually enlighten and awaken us all. Thanks, Trish. That must go over like gangbusters among a conservative voter base like MS-04. I'm no prude; FAR FAR FAR from it. In fact, I'm a bit freaky at times. However, I'm not running for Congress.
Trish caused a bit of a stir today on Twitter when she decided to whack the hornet's nest with a stick by tweeting THIS, which is what passes for genteel civility on the Left:
Seriously? The very same Congress you hope to be elected to just formed a Select Committee to investigate how your hero and deity , Dear Leader Barack Hussein Obama (Blessed be His Name), and his pack of cronies like Queen Pantsuit Hillary Clinton, left 4 Americans including an Ambassador to die in Benghazi and then LIED about it and tried to brush it off. And you decide to tweet THIS and expect to not only be taken seriously, but you expect to be applauded for your crassness and think donations will now pour in? (She has a funding goal of $200,000 and has so far raised $1,363.
Well, at least you're getting some publicity. No one knew who the hell you were before today, and now you're riding the free publicity gravy train. However, the closest to Congress you're gonna get is by being a fluffer at the DNC Convention. Enjoy. #TrueStory
