The front page of the Mihos web page has been amended to note that Christy’s dog died. The news is a new section which dominates the center front of the page.
“Our dog, Reagan, was our Canine Campaign Coordinator in 2006,” says christy2010.com. “He was fearless, as are all Yorkies, and always went after groups of wild turkeys who were chasing us home.”
Sadly, Reagan isn’t here to coordinate the present campaign, as the staff in place now appears to be ready to take a shellacking in the just around the corner caucuses.
But that’s not the point.
I love man’s best friend too, but dear God in Heaven.
Someone running for governor puts this type of news as the epicenter of their Internet campaign when the following is happening –
1. Unemployment in Massachusetts is in reality 16 to 18 percent, all things considered.
2. The recession is so brutal that grocery sales are down for the first time in half of a century.
3. Foreclosed homes dominate the landscape from Cape Cod to the Berkshires.
4. Governor Patrick’s tax policies have only hurt the Commonwealth and made us less business friendly.
5. Barack Obama is digging us a new abyss of debt not seen since the Weimar Republic, thus risking another financial crisis that may make the October Crash look like a cake walk.
6. The state house is corrupt beyond belief, as seen by the most recent state senator sentenced to House Arrest, almost routine for the Democrats on Beacon Hill.
7. A terrorist almost blows up a plane, and Barack Obama says, to the nation’s dismay, it’s not connected to the overall war on terror.
8. Food pantries around the country are reporting a massive increase in customers as people face tougher times than ever before and as it becomes more and more clear that the Obama economic policies have failed us totally.
And yet, Christy, amidst all this, wants us to focus on the passing of his dog, who I guess was his “canine campaign coordinator” when he ran against us in 06. Is this some sort of skit from Saturday Night Live or something?????
I’m sorry, I don’t want anything to happen to anyone’s pet, but these are serious times and we need serious people to lead us forward. It’s just too weird to take him seriously any longer.
