Of course, the Healey Campaign wrote a nice little note to the MDP in response to Reilly’s ad stating that the MDP should file an ethics complaint against Reilly, unless they decide not to be hypocrites and pull the complaints against Healey. Now it’s hard for me to admit that a Republican has a point, but come on, they do. It was a good defensive/offensive (however you wanna look at it) maneuver to bring out the complaint against Healey, but now it just looks bad on both ends.
But, I do love (sarcasm) the Party’s response to the Healey camps ultimatum. Cyndi Roy of the Democratic Party states: “I’m glad that Kerry Healey and her campaign are paying such close attention to our candidates . . . Maybe she’ll pick up a few things along the way.”
I know its supposed to be taken as kind of a F-U response. But, she dissed (yes, I used the word dissed) the Democratic Party in her response as well. These are just some little things I noticed that bugged me. First of all of course Republicans are watching our candidate’s ads like hawks. We all know this. Secondly, yeah I guess they did pick a thing or two up along the way; now they know they can stick the state insignia in any political ad they choose to, because we did it too. They tested the limits and now are probably going full out come September. Lastly, shouldn’t the Democratic party be watching all its candidates like hawks to make sure this stuff doesn’t happen?
Anyway, feel free to comment – shout, yell, bitch, tear my points apart, or maybe even agree in true BMG style.
