New feature on this blog “This is why consultants exist”


It’s true that sometimes political consultants get a bad rap.  But let there be absolutely no doubt that they are necessary.  Left to their own devices, wonderful and well meaning men and women regularly do some of the craziest things when running for office.  I have nearly a decade of examples and I’m planning to begin trickling them out.

I have resisted posting many of these but what I saw today changed my mind.  I now have an  obligation to generations of candidates to come to showcase common mistakes.

*Disclaimer – Please be respectful to these folks, rookie campaign mistakes are not uncommon.

For our first ever entry I give you the announcement 10 minute and 13 second announcement video from Georgia Congressional candidate Brian Slowinski.  Please kids, watch this and don’t ever try to run for congress alone.
