It's an exciting time in the race for Governor. And with four weeks until the Democratic primary, the Reilly campaign is right where we want to be...
In last place?
A new WBZ-TV poll shows what we've known for a long time, that Tom Reilly is the only candidate who is moving in the right direction.Moving down in the polls "for a long time" is where Reilly wanted to be? Was he trying to go South towards Isenguard to avoid the forces of Isengaurd? Does he even want to be Governor?
I know he's trying to create some sort of buzz, but telling people how great the campaign is doing seems less like buzz and more like desperation. It's not the case of turning lemons into lemonade. It's more like selling spoiled lemonade to thirsty, paying costumers. Voters won't want more and certainly won't come back.
If Tom Reilly wants to win, he needs to create some ideas for buzz - not buzz for buzz (or how about getting some of our Big Dig money back?). He needs to be honest, not desperate. He needs to win on merit, not resort to his old negative-politician self. At the very least, if he wants to win, he could try spicing up the campaign emails (which I never signed up for). Am I asking too much here?
