I hope that most of you, unlike myself, have not been subjected to the ongoing clown show that has been the communications effort from Gerald Geddes. His bid for the Republican nomination in the 11th Congressional District of Virginia has been an ongoing demonstration of what happens when an idiot campaigner is armed with an email account while left unsupervised by anyone with a clue about how political campaigns are done. About all he’s accomplished so far in my view is to make Gerry Connolly look comparatively good, which is a pretty monumental task considering the degree to which I loathe Gerry Connolly.
So out of nowhere comes this line from his most recent campaign spam: “If Shak joins my race I will kick his skinny butt all over VAs 11th district. I’ll enjoy knocking Shak’s soft teeth down his whining throat.”
Quite the Virginia statesman, isn’t he? Apparently Geddes is concerned that Shak Hill is going to enter this race and wants to run a little bit of psychological warfare in his direction by self-inflicting mortal head wounds to his own campaign. Normally a candidate does this by having a sexual relationship with someone on their campaign staff, but since there quite obviously isn’t anyone else there (otherwise some degree of adult supervision would be evident) this accountant decided to simply emulate the children who commanded his attention in grade school and simply started threatening people with violence.
I’ve gone from being amused by Geddes, to being a bit annoyed, to developing quite a unique kind of disgust towards this campaign. I’ve seen far better efforts from people running for President of their student body in High School.
UPDATE: Geddes finally responds to the outpouring of bitter criticism against him as a result of his serial stupidity, pledging “Between now and 5/10/14 I will convince these delegates who currently hate me to vote for me.” Yeah, good luck with that, Gerald. At least you accurately characterize how people have emotionally reacted to your campaign… “They hate me…” about sums it up.
