Candidate remarks that are most remarkable!

Here is something on the lighter side for a Saturday. A couple of candidate’s remarks and ads that, well, are interesting to say the least. Here we go.

The Montana Senate race has been perhaps the most interesting contest thus far in the 2014 Senate election cycle. Original nominee, and sitting interim Senator, John Walsh was busted for plagiarism on a 14 page (!) Master’s thesis*. Sensing that this might be a liability on the campaign trail, he was replaced with single term Montana State Representative Amanda Curtis. She’s already come under fire for some rather unfortunate statements from her days as a Blogger.

There are a lot of things Ms. Curtis doesn’t seem to know, such as her positions on major issues.  From a CNN profile:  “When asked her position on the situation in Iraq, Curtis told CNN, ‘Give me a little more time.’ On the border crisis, ‘I’ll need more time, you know only 11 days ago I was painting my storm windows.’”  What she does know is that she’s against “the one percent” and hates Paul Ryan’s budget.

…she’s the kind of Leftist who has no problem with Revolutionary Socialism, even if it means roughing a few people up and destroying some property along the way, and at one point, her Facebook profile photo was of Elizabeth Gurley Flynn, the head of the Communist Party USA and recipient of a state funeral from the Soviet Union.

In case you haven’t caught this one from Amanda, I will throw it in as well. We might just catch this Senate seat!

I have added A Day at the Races to my blog located at the upper right hand corner called Looking Ahead 2014. They carry posts on some of the little covered races as well as some of the major ones. I caught this one from them. Wander over for the full read.


Out of Africa, Into Arkansas

About Ebola: it’s not just Republicans playing that card.

In Arkansas’ increasingly contentious Senate race, Democratic incumbent Pryor’s campaign is out with a new tv spot tying his Republican challenger, Rep. Tom Cotton, to the West African scourge.

Pryor’s not accusing Cotton of carrying the disease, per se. Actually, it’s more like being an enabler — for being one of 29 House members in January 2013 to vote against HR 307, aka “The Pandemic And All-Hazards Preparedness Reauthorization Act” (actually Cotton voted in favor of final passage of the bill).

The Cotton campaign’s response: “Senator Pryor’s desperation is comical. In Senator Pryor’s world, he doesn’t have to take responsibility for rubber-stamping the Obama agenda over 90% of the time, but wants Arkansans to believe Tom Cotton is responsible for everything from Ebola to crabgrass and male-pattern baldness.”

Makes you wonder when and where we’ll hit bottom in this election cycle.

Here’s Pryor’s ad (no surgical mask required to watch it):
