Behney Tries Out The Obama Messiah Thing

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Richard Behney, otherwise known as the AttaBoy Plumber guy, is now taking a page out of Barack Obama's presidential campaign. He's pretending to be the Messiah stepping out of the shadows to rescue all of us. You've got to check out this video. It exposes him for the ego maniac he is. Hell, I was expecting him to run into a phone booth and emerge in his Superman suit. Behney, who did not found the Tea Party movement in Indiana despite claims to the contrary, announced his campaign by ripping off an old Birch Bayh slogan, "Hey, Look Me Over", which Bayh used during his upset win over Sen. Homer Capehart in 1962.

LOL. Is this serious? I did see some people wearing some Behney t-shirts at the 9-12 rally in DC on Sat. Unfortunately since I live in VA now, I don't have a say in this race. Can't the GOP find someone credible to take on Bayh?

You also forgot that the Bayhs have used exclamation points in their logos...something else Behney is copying.

Well, Nick, you've got to remember which law firm sent Bayh off to Washington about a million dollars richer--Baker & Daniels. And which law firm does our Republican state party chairman, Murray Clark, work? Yeah, that about sums it up. I've seen no indication that Clark is interested in recruiting a top tier candidate to run. When another Baker & Daniels attorney, John Keeler, served as Marion Co. GOP Chairman, the law firm actually had a gag rule as part of its contract with the City of Indianapolis that prohibited Keeler from speaking negatively about Bart Peterson.

Oh, lawdy! We haven't seen a profile like that since John Barrymore.

I thought it was a good ad. We need someone who will take on the unconstitutional meanderings of Obama, the Dems, and his minions like Bayh. Bayh will win no matter what, but I may as well vote for the guy who expresses my views most closely.

Nick said...

True, I guess I should've thought about that...the same people who have given Bayh a pass are the same ones who gave Peterson a pass.

I can't think of a President or party in my lifetime that have more aptly postitioned themselves for receiving an onslaught of negative campaigning. But, c'mon Behney- I may be way past fed up with the grifters of both parties, but you're going to have to talk and sound authentic, even if you don't sound worldly. You've got more lead time for debates than Palin if you us it- and you'll need it.

The bar may be lower. But, as the Wendy's lady said, "Where's the beef?"
