It is often said that all’s fair in love, war and politics, but the always feisty and often irreverent blogger at Maven & Meddler apparently doesn’t see it that way. She has written a scathing post about Dan Hart’s “cheesy front group,” aka www.DontBetOnSandoval.com. Here’s her opener:
Don’t let anybody say that I only walk the talk on a single side of the street. In this case, a former Reid operative is pissing me off with this campaign against Brian Sandoval – the guy who would be Governor Jim ‘Crazy Pants’ Gibbons replacement.
Out of sheer cussedness I think I’d vote for Sandoval, were the election tomorrow. If I could re-register as a Republican temporarily to vote for Sandoval in the Republican primary, I would do it in a heart beat.
Is the Rory Reid campaign listening?
They ought to be.
The rest of the post includes a passionate defense of Sandoval, some choice words about Hart and his ads, and a few little gems for Rory, too. (Language warning, so those with delicate sensibilities oughta brace yourselves — or skip it.)
If other Democrat and/or Independent voters see things through the same lens Maven does, and if Sandoval wins the GOP primary, it’s possible Hart’s Sandoval-bashing campaign could ultimately have the opposite of its intended effect:
Keeping Rory Reid out of the governor’s mansion.
