OK, I found this interesting tidbit on the BlueOregon website. Yes, those facists at BlueOregon who try to keep black people from voting. (If I say it over and over then people will assume it's true!)
They had the Oregon League of tree huggers, er, Conservation Voters scoring for the gubernatorial candidates.
The best part is the Mannix scores: "his rating as a Republican in 1999 was 9%. His rating during his previous time when he was a Democrat (remember that?) was 60.5%."
Why the flip-flop Kevin? Was Steve Duin around for this one too?
Less notable but still laughable, Kevin's state elections pamphlet from his (democrat) run for Attorney General lists his educational background as: B.A., Liberal Arts, 1971, law degree, 1974, University of Virginia.
His pamphlet from his (Republican) run for governor list his education background as: Bachelor of Arts and Law Degrees, University of Virginia.
It went from "liberal arts" to simply "arts." (as if there was any other kind)
The question for me is, when Kevin Mannix takes a stance on an issue is it because he truly believes in it? Or is it because it's a political neccessity to further his career?
I'm voting for the principled candidate Senator Jason Atkinson.
IMPORTANT NOTE: I am voting for Atkinson for Governor. However I am not in any way affiliated with his campaign. I am criticizing Mannix, and will continue to, but "State Sen. Jason Atkinson, R-Central Point, the other candidate in the race, said he didn't want to attack a fellow Republican." SOURCE (source also happens to be a dig at Mannix, that's a bonus)
The bottom line, I don't mind so-called "attack ads" and "smear campaigns" but Jason does. My blog is my own.
