  •  This is a republish of a puff piece for (5+ / 0-)

    the Charleston Examiner. Aside from being 3rd party advocacy, I'd tend to rate it as Spam. Evidently Mr Groce is also a marketing consultant, though his blurb doesn't specify what areas he consults in.

    At least half the future I've been expecting hasn't gotten here yet. Sigh.... (Yes, there's gender bias in my name; no, I wasn't thinking about it when I signed up. My apologies.)

      it in no way intends to advocate a third party.  

      I suppose I should not have taken it for granted that 3rd party/fusion/co-endorsement wouldn't be well-known to those in the 43 states that have no such practice.

      Even more, though, I should not have taken it for granted that anyone in any state - even this one of subject here - know anything about South Carolina politics.

      btw, my consultation is provided through product development phases, primary research analysis, and advertising recommendations.

        particularly that on your marketing work.

        It still feels like a puff piece, though. Doesn't seem to be any negative or even neutral element to balance the positive hype. There is an obvious line between endorsement and advocacy, then?

        Do you think we're fucking idiots? HR'd for lying.
