Knoxville mayoral candidate Mark Padgett has a spin release for everything. He sent me on the other day about taking a whizz.
Kidding. But, he might have, if he'd thought about it.
Anyhoo, in today's spin job, the campaign says that opponent “Madeline Rogero's new TV commercial (“Believe”) hides her public record of raising taxes, raising her own pay and creating a politician slush fund.”
Well, no kidding. Her commercial also didn't say she was arrested for being a hippie and that she drinks firewater for breakfast.
I mean, WTH is the relevance?
Padgett's commercials don't say that his business experience consists of creating only five jobs. Or that he drinks rubbing alcohol for breakfast. (Hey, that's a rumor I heard. It must be true. Yeah, someone told me it. Whatever.)
But, why would they?
Still, Padgett again talks about how Rogero voted on “five” tax increases. He might want to check that one. And how she voted to use taxpayer dollars to “fill up a slush fund for Knox County politicians . . . .”
You know what? It's not even worth going into. The Metro Pulse already explained the details this crap. Click right smack here for what the hell raisin' hippies (is that an oxymoron?) had to say.
This race sickens me. BOTH sides annoy me. It's one big freakin' cliché.
And I can't wait until it's over. (Write in my name for mayor.)
In the meantime, another spin job has just come in – that's two from the camp today – and it says that Padgett plans to campaign 24 hours “around the clock” before election day.
So? Just do it. Don't brag about it.
What's he going to do in the middle of the night? Go tent-to-tent through the homeless camps?
I told you he had a spin release for everything.
