Phony “Log Cabin Republican” Endorsement letter floating around in Mississippi

July 27, 2011

***UPDATE*** This letter is absolutely fake

This was just emailed in and it looks bogus.  I doubt the Log Cabin Republicans are getting involved in the Mississippi Republican Primaries. Smells like someone is up to some dirty tricks.  The letter is not mentioned on their website: LOG CABIN REPUBLICANS

And the signature and the name of the executive director do not match.

We don’t appreciate this kind of dirty, nasty, underhanded politics so we are here to call this out, that’s why blogging can be a force for good.  If this letter is in fact fake and if anyone else received this please let us know.

Bad Tate, Bad, Bad Tate

June 25, 2011

This new ad from Billy Hewes has us totally entertained, I am not sure if you can even call it a negative ad when there is a chihuahua in it.  Anyway the production value looks really good and the message,  although Tate Reeves probably does not like it will probably be somewhat effective.

Regardless of our feelings about this race we love ads and we REALLY LOVE attack ads.

Positive ads are so boring most of the time.

Political silly season just started.

Overall ROM Ad Grade: B+

Travis Childers Caught In a Bold Faced Lie Over Obama Endorsement

April 29, 2008

Channel 3 WREG Busts Travis Childers for Lying about the Obama Endorsement

You watch the video, you look at the evidence, you look at Childers body language. Travis Childers is a Liar. The Obama Endorsement letter has been posted on just about every well read political blog in Mississippi and we have a screen capture here.

Does anyone really think that the campaign manager has not been on the internet in a week, nor did they bother to check to see if there were any facts associated with an attack ad that is running against them.

Notice Childers does not reject the endorsement.

Notice how he fidgets when he has to answer questions about it.

This is a really dumb move, the Davis campaign won this one boys, take your lumps and try to change the subject, we know when someone is lying and yall are full of it. Anyone think we can trust Travis Childers or his campaign manager anymore?

Endorsement: 2 a: to approve openly <endorse an idea>; especially : to express support or approval of publicly and definitely <endorse a candidate>

I would say an open letter and public campaigning qualifies.

Pathetic that the man who wants to represent honest hard working Mississippian’s can smile and lie right to their faces.

Travis Childers Failed To Pay His Taxes!

April 18, 2008

The Greg Davis Campaign is up swinging with this “contrast” ad split half on Travis Childers failure to pay his taxes on time over 130 times and half on why Greg Davis is the better choice.  We always like this tactic because ending on a positive note is nice. It’s like smiling to the crowd after you just broke the other guys nose.

Best ad of MS-01 so far in our opinion, maybe not the hardest hitting but quite possibly the most effective. Gives reasons why Childers is bad and reasons to vote for Davis. That might be the winning combination for the April 22nd Special.

Overall Grade: A-
