Last month Rep. Mike Smiddy pledged to donate his forced pay raise of $3000 to charity. This statement of good will was met with cynical disbelief by pathetic hack Sen. Mike “Fists O’ Fury” Jacobs who sneered:
In an unsolicited press release sent to me Friday, during a stop at the Sterling YWCA, which claims to be the “area’s leading provider of services to domestic and sexual assault victims”, “Rep. Smiddy also donated a personal check to Sterling YWCA.”
Several things here:
1. I am not on Smiddy’s—or any politician’s email list, so this was sent to me by an obviously on-the-ball campaign manager who had remembered my post of July 10. A CM like that is worth his weight in gold and is certainly more effective than Team Schilling and Team Dimocrat which believes relentless insults, juvenile put-downs and trash talk will win the day. So bravo Ben Head, well done sir!
2. This move also effectively takes the pay raise off the table as a campaign issue.
3. It also slapped down the idiot Jacobs, who I hope will also receive this press release.
I still want The Woz to win, but Smiddy is making all the right moves and I agree with what commenter QC Republican said in another thread:
“I will give you this, Smiddy is the bright light in an otherwise dull and dumb Dem Chicago-linked dark bar room.”
I hope Smiddy will be the template for the New Democrat that will emerge after all the Jacobs/Verschoore/etc. dinosaurs waddle off to those Tar Pits In The Sky.
Or Hope Creek.
If not sooner.
