Ben Smith posts an unedited copy of a fundraising pitch from Nevada's Republican Governor, Jim Gibbons. Excerpt:
We've all seen where this "hopey...changey...feely...and now "believey" kind of stuff" has gotten our great Country...to the Socialist World of Big Government and of Higher Taxes...and to a Government Takeover of the Banks...of the Insurance Industry...of the Car Companies...and now...of the Peoples' Health Care and their Right to make Personal Decisions with their doctors.
These "hopey...changey...feely...and now "believey" kinda of things will bring our entire country that much closer to a "European Socialist State"...nothing that our Forefathers have Envisioned and nothing close to my Vision for A Nevada Government which is...For the People and By the People."
The hopey changey stuff I've heard before of critisism by Palin of Obama et al...the believey stuff focuses on bs [Brian Sandoval]'s current theme...the feely accentuates this ploy bs is using, like a song which was cool, but over time gets old/boring/drops off the charts, and it loses its credibility which I believe is dangerous for bs as it puts bs too close to areas of our President's administration. That polls suggest people have had enough. As the polls are showing, Nevadan Voters Say No to Large Government and are Saying Yes to Lower Taxes...Yes to Smaller Government...Yes to Real Jobs...and Yes to the Vision that The Gibbons Administration has been pursuing!
When misspelling 'criticism' with an 's' instead of a 'c' is not your most egregious error, you know you've 'written' something very, very special indeed. As Ben notes, Gibbons sounds like he's channeling Sarah Palin...teabonics and all.
