A Data Point for Future Campaign Marketers
The flier at left, which arrived at my house within the past week (fittingly, on garbage day), will stand as the final motivation for me to actually take the time to go out on primary day and actively vote against Linc Chafee.
No doubt exacerbated by current events and the specific fears that plague aware citizens of the day, I find this imagery both disturbing in its callousness and offensive in its aggression on a very basic level. Take a bow, National Republican Senatorial Committee; although I can’t claim that you’ve driven me away from a vote for the candidate whom you favor, you’ve most certainly increased Mr. Laffey’s votes by a count of at least one.
If it should happen that Mr. Laffey wins and you shift your focus toward his election, please learn from your mistakes and don’t sway voters toward Sheldon Whitehouse.
