Things seem to have have hit rock bottom over at the Day for Delegate campaign. While some campaigns are busy busing supporters and volunteers in from all over Virginia and rallying the troops for a major final push this weekend, the Day campaign has decided to launch his “November Surprise” by putting out a district-wide robo call clarifying his record on hunting. Or should that be his record on poaching?
Day stated in his campaign mail to be “an avid hunter,” only to be confronted by Delegate Scott Lingamfelter at the October 3rd Times Democrat/Farm Bureau debate. According to Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, Day has not held a hunting license in the last 18 months.
Day’s Saturday robo call admitted to the charge that he did not have a hunting license, saying that because he “battled cancer” he did not hunt. Let’s get this straight — Mr. Day was too incapacitated to stand in a field and shoot a shotgun, but not too incapacitated to get on the back of a horse and jump numerous hedgerows to chase unsuspecting foxes? It is hard to believe that voters will accept this argument since Day has not had a hunting license in the last 18 months, refused to respond to NRA’s candidate survey, and admitted to fox hunting without a license.
During the debate on October 3rd, he mentioned nothing about an illness. Instead, the reason for not having a hunting license was that he had taken up fox hunting. I guess since he was unsuccessful selling that line and has retreated to illness as an excuse for poaching as opposed to stupidity.
Candidate Day was also spotted today door knocking his home precinct in Fauquier. Unlike most focused, efficient candidates, Mr. Day was seen spending valuable time knocking on doors of unregistered voters! This is certainly not surprising for a Democrat Party nominee who voted in the April 2007 Republican Primary, claims to be an environmentalist but lives off of Exxon Mobil royalties, supports illegal immigration, and claims to be a psychotherapist while lacking a license to practice.
Why doesn’t Mr. Day take a lesson from Delegate Lingamfelter who has been through two major surgeries: one for prostate cancer and one for a total hip replacement and doesn’t market his personal illness as a way to garner votes. Its called manhood, Bill, not victim hood.
Count down to decimation for the Day campaign: 48 hours.
