After Anne Boyle personally capsized the gubernatorial campaign of fellow Democrat Mark Lakers, we suggested she be the one to replace him as the candidate.
Well, she sort of did.
She gets to ride shotgun on the Goober Express — show her face at the Elks Club, and such — without having to drive.
Because, c’mon, who knows the name of the current Lieutenant Governor — quick! No Googling! (Or looking at the photo with this post.)
OK, a few of you hard cores knew Rick Sheehy. But does the average voter? (Sorry Rick, but not likely.)
So, we’re to understand that Boyle motivates…who?
Well, will this excite Democrats to give the Meister campaign money? Away from Tom White?
Will it cause Heineman to “defend himself”, to soften him up in case he runs in 2012?
This run by Boyle is all about Boyle. Dems were pissed at her, frankly, for making Lakers quit the race. She had to save face by “stepping up” and taking one for the team.
Only problem is, all the shots are going to be flying at Meister, not her.
And she knows it.
By the way, in the first story on this announcement that went up with the OWH, Paul Hammel described Boyle as a “super star”. In the LJS, Don Walton says that Boyle “blisters” Heineman.
Always reminds me of the Simpsons episode where TV anchorman Kent Brockman was reporting on Bart taking over Kamp Krusty.
“Ladies and gentlemen, I’ve been to Vietnam, Afghanistan, and Iraq, and I can say without hyperbole that this is a million times worse than all of them put together.”
