Michael Giuliano, the young legal editor running against Louise Slaughter, came to the Tea Party Coalition candidatesâ€™ night the other day and I sat down with him afterwards for a chat. I like the kid (he’s 29). He’s got guts taking on both a congressional giant and the Republican machine. He showed far greater command of the issues than did his opponent, Jill Rowland (“I really don’t know what the Dept. of Education does.”) And he has a great dry sense of humor.
He’s the kind of candidate I have been looking for all year, young, fresh, new to politics. There are too many Harold Stassens in the movement and too many would-be politicians who confuse the good of the movement with their own grand cause of losing just one more time.
Plus, Mike’s a Ron Paul guy. Awesome. I won’t have to take a shower after the campaign.
So, I’m happy to say that I have joined his campaign staff. We are greased and ready to kick ass!
We are doing a Solution to Slaughter Money Bomb and asking 5000 people to donate five dollars to provide seed money for the campaign. Louise has a half million and will raise three more so this is peanuts. But the truth is on our side so donâ€™t need as much as Louise.
Next, we need registered Republicans to carry petitions. Please send me an email if you can. firstname.lastname@example.org
We are also looking for a clever videographer to make a humorous You Tube video launching the campaign. I am writing the script as we speak. Only if you are really good, work fast and cheap, call me at 716-435-8918.
And we need a good place for a beer party in Tonawanda.
Here’s a map of the crazy district.
Stay tuned for more news about the campaign.
