See it here:
Now the first thing you will notice is that Jeremy is also going with the v-neck zip-down, favored by Mayor Suttle — except Jeremy left out the silk tie. Wise move Jeremy.
After that he breaks down a few of the reasons for the recall — namely faulting the Mayor for the recent CIR decision in favor of the firefighters.
All in all, well-delivered by Aspen who has done a decent job as a spokesman in this gig.
Other than this we have yet to see or hear any ads, though the recallers promise that there will be radio up before the week is over.
And interesting tact that the anti-recallers have taken is (apparently) employing VOICE Omaha’s Craig Moody to run their campaign.
According to a video on Joe Jordan’s blog, Moody has stated that their goal is to nail down 10,000 votes for Suttle.
Which is an interesting strategy.
Figure that Omaha has a total registration of 247,000. If turnout is 25%, that means 60,000 voters.
50% + 1= 30,000.
So, if they have 10,000 votes “locked down”, they still need another 20,000 to win. If turnout is only 20%, that’s 48,000 voters –you win with 24,000 –so 10,000 is still less than half of what they need.
In other words, it is an interesting strategy to shoot that low. Now we are sure they’re thinking, “Well, if that’s our base, we can turn out even more than that.”
Not sure what Moody’s campaign experience is, but this one could make him or break him.
Oh by the way did you know that Jim Suttle is/was an engineer — a point mentioned no less than five times (six, if you count the headline) in the article. Is this Suttle’s all-inclusive defense in life?
“I’d shovel the walk honey, but I’m an engineer, and the best option really would be to raise your taxes and have someone from the city do it.”
“We could go to a movie tonight, but I’m an engineer and Rom-Coms just don’t make any sense to me. Sandra Bullock clearly should have just raised his taxes, then took a walk on the beach.”
We could (hillariously) go on.
And four Democrats bu only one Republican comment huh? Balanced.
In the mean time, we like how Suttle complains about how the recallers have lots of high-dollar donaters. Yup Mr. Mayor. Cry that one all the way to Dick Holland, ok?
