Republican Congressional candidate Dan Sebring, who’s hoping against hope to beat Rep. Gwen Moore in Wisconsin’s 4th Congressional district in 2010, Tweeted the following the day before yesterday:
See what America’s Conservative Thinker has to say about Gwen Moore…and me! http://bit.ly/8FJLT
Dan Sebring is apparently pleased as punch that the America’s Conservative Thinker blog had some nice things to say about him, while having some rather unkind things to say about Rep. Moore.
However, here’s what I take issue with….the blog entry Dan Sebring linked to is titled, “GWEN MOORE: WISCONSIN’S POLITICAL HEMERRHOID”. Putting aside the spelling error (it’s hemorrhoid, not hemerrhoid), I find it difficult to take seriously someone who calls himself a “Conservative Thinker” while at the same time calling an elected official a hemorrhoid (and spelling it wrong in the process).
So here’s some advice for the author of America’s Conservative Thinker: invest in a dictionary. Better yet, if you don’t want to spend the money to buy one, just use an online dictionary.
And here’s what I’m wondering….does Dan Sebring really think Rep. Gwen Moore is a “political hemorrhoid?” If he doesn’t, then why did he provide a link directing his followers to read a blog entry labeling her as such? If Dan Sebring thinks the kinds of personal attacks and vitriol being spewed by the author of America’s Conservative Thinker are going to win him votes, then it’s going to be a long election year for Sebring, who I’m still predicting to lose by at least 20 points in 2010.
