Americans still vote in the flesh, Save Jerseyans, but campaigns are becoming increasingly digital.
It’s not enough to just have a website in 2012. Utility is overtaking novelty as information-intensive political contrast pages populate the Internet. Most people are now getting their “hard” news online. Campaigns are foolish to ignore their web presence as a result.
New Jersey’s GOP U.S. Senate nominee Joe Kyrillos launched a new a web site this morning, cheaptalkbob.com, that according to the campaign will highlight “Senator Bob Menendez’s assault on the middle class.”
State Senator Kyrillos can be expected to obsess over two stats between now and Election Day: 4.7% and 8.2%. The first percentage represents the U.S. unemployment rate when Bob Menendez was first elected to the U.S. Senate in ’06; the later figure is the current pathetic (and historically persistent) U.S. unemployment rate.
All Bob’s fault? No. He had help… Menendez and his fellow Democrats – and their votes for bigger and more expensive government paid for by bleeding taxpayers and businesses to death – are most certainly to blame. In that he most certainly shares culpability for our ruin, Save Jerseyans!
