California Republican gubernatorial primary candidate Bill Jones has had his web site shut down by his service provider because he was sending out spam.
“I have concerns about an Internet provider who is stifling free political speech a week before the election,” said Sean Walsh, Jones’ deputy campaign manager. “This is an intelligent, thoughtful and appropriate way to campaign.”
Let’s parse this. For “…stifling free political speech…” read “…unwilling to involuntarily spew millions of spam emails to people who aren’t even eligible to vote…” For “intelligent, thoughtful and appropriate” read “…obnoxious, stupid, and counter-productive…”
With idiots like this running his campaign, it’s no wonder he’s tanking.
My money’s still on Simon. And I have hopes for him in the general election as well.
