The blogosphere erupted in laughter.
In April '07, Bennett kicked off her campaign a second time at a fundraiser in which you could be her "friend" for just $100. Bernie Kieklak had yet another pithy observation. "The more exposure Sammy Bennett gets, the lower her support goes. Like most political opportunists, people can see right through the phony, plastic facade."
In May '07, Bennett made it official for a third time, announcing that she was really, really, really, really running for Congress. Seriously.
Now she's doing it again.
In a MEDIA ADVISORY sent all over the planet, Bennett announces that she will announce tonight - for the fourth time - that she's running for Congress. This time she's doing it "with visuals," too, whatever the hell that means. I hope I don't see any fans.
In her news release, she disingenuously claims all the biggies will be there - "Over 100 RSVPed guests include Mayor Callahan, Mayor Pawlowski, Mayor Stoffa, other elected and party officials, and the largest grassroots volunteer base in any campaign in the state."
Stoffa is the Mayor of Northampton County? Wow! I didn't know that.
I do know Sam's fourth announcement - even if it has visuals - still conflicts with a meeting of Northampton County Council, and that's where Mayor Stoffa will be tonight.
And get this sentence.
"Allentown is the heart of the Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania’s most famed swing area, and Sam’s race for Congress (as a party leader, one of the few women running for Congress in the state, and in an area with a sizable Latino population that is struggling to recreate its economy) is expected to mirror the Presidential dynamic."
Huh? She needs to "recreate" that news release in a languauge we all understand.
Sam also takes credit for "resuscitating the Mayfair Festival of the Arts," although I suspect there will be another side to that story
About the only thing she has going for her is that she is a Democrat, so we're all supposed to jump on her bandwagon and go right over the cliff with her. I'm sorry, but a bad candidate is a bad candidate, regardless of party.
