It’s that time of the election cycle again.
When spring is in the air, at a time when we’re likely to see no more snow, the fluorescent postcards begin to bloom, as courtesy of the Lautenschlager held South Dakota Gun Owners organization, they spread silliness and poo all over the state’s Republican primaries.
A reader received this one, and just snapped one side for me, but I’m sure there’s more of them coming. Just like last election, as you’ll see in this silly example from 2014, which was a lot of BS:
What’s the big difference from between this year, and last year?
Did I say South Dakota Gun Owners? Um, that might be debatable. This year the fluorescent postcards are flocking in from on a Rocky Mountain High, as they arrive from Loveland, Colorado. Not Rapid City, where they they were formerly based. That’s because the head of the Lautenschlager group doing all the fluorescent attack postcards, Zach Lautenschlager, hasn’t been living in South Dakota for a while…
…hence the need for the attacks to be launched from two states away.
Can they legitimately call themselves the South Dakota Gun Owners PAC if it’s being ran out of Colorado? Maybe they could put an asterisk behind it, for the sake of disclosure? (We’ll watch for it on the others. Or at least the others that show up on time.)
Either way, some of this year’s postcards seem to be remarkable in that a few seem to be traipsing in from “elsewhere,” as they alternately cajole or cheer candidates,
Not just coming via the postcard from the
South Dakota Colorado* Gun Owners above, D35 Senate Candidate Tina Mulalley seems to be getting much of her campaign support from parts elsewhere, as there’s yet another cheer-leading postcard for her originating from several states away – this time, Indiana:
At least she didn’t note “Small Business Owner Supporting Indiana-Made Products” under her “Grow Jobs” section.
(*And no, it’s not that she didn’t use me, I’m completely up to my eyeballs this election season, and just keep getting busier. It’s just silly to go to Indiana to print or mail.)
