Jim Barksdale seems hellbent on proving his fortunes can’t buy him a single gram of campaign competence, reportedly telling Hall County Democrats America is to blame for radical Islam and the Orlando massacre.
The GAGOP was oh-so-helpful distributing a statement with Barksdale’s quote, where he said “we are the ones that are in the wrong.”
Oy. What is this guy thinking? Oh wait… he isn’t. Or at least that’s what the context clues of his non-existent campaign strategy suggest.
Some more context for Barksdale’s above quote: “When I say ‘America is captive’ it’s captive because of the narrative of violence and hate, and I feel like that’s part of what we need to be working on…We need to step back from the violence.”
A piece of free advice for Barksdale and Democrats: just pack it up and call this race a loss. Any energy spent on this campaign takes away from other races you could win.
But what of the disappearing ink? Well, the GAGOP wanted to show they too are inept at campaigning. The statement on their website had a white font on white background. Really helpful, guys.
