Is Montana ready for a new Congressman? I have been reading Dennis McDonald’s campaign rhetoric for weeks now about how Rehberg has outstayed his welcome in Washington. The McDonald campaign has continually ran ads and shot off press releases to advance his hype that he is another of those “hope and change” guys that can take back Washington for the people.
Here is one of McDonald’s publicity stunts that went terribly awry. Great idea – damn poor execution. The “plan” went something like this; McDonald gathered his staff, grabbed some props for the camera like brooms, mops, buckets, and cleaning supplies and then called for the press to meet him in front of Congressman Rehberg’s office in Missoula for a press release and to, as Dennis McDonald put it, clean up Washington, starting with Rehberg.
When Dennis McDonald decided to try and have a little circus in front of Rehberg’s office to get himself a free campaign ad he perhaps should have kept the plan to himself instead of bragging about his “great idea” and having little inter-staff Hee-Haws and giggles while talking about how great this was going to come off in the press. What ultimately happened was that the College Republicans got wind of the “when and where” and met poor McDonald’s group in front of Rehberg’s office with some questions of their own. See College Republican Chris Shipp in action in this video.
NOTE TO MCDONALD***** WHEN YOU ARE GOING TO HOLD A CIRCUS, MAKE SURE YOU DON’T WIND UP BEING THE CLOWN YOURSELF
I just love these Montana College Republicans ......... Hoo-Rah!
