The devil is in the details, as the old saying goes.
GOP candidate for State School Superintendent Sandy Welch has adopted a creative new strategy to come across as more friendly, hip, and fun.
A new photo depicts the candidate in a what looks like a saucy devil costume, complete with horns and a lacy top. The photo first appeared on the candidates Facebook page (left) and has since made an appearance in the television coverage of a recent education debate.
Here’s the video:
Until now, the Welch campaign has faced an uphill battle in many respects. First, the candidate is relatively unknown, having never held elective office. Second, Welch has come across as a little bit angry and negative in the past after dumping on Montana public school classrooms because she thought it would help her politically.
Those days are over. Image, as they say, is everything.
At this time, it is not clear with the saucy devil is a is a permanent addition to the campaign image or a special Halloween themed release. Kudos to Welch are in order for her creativity and willingness to think outside the box.
is assuredly the worst president in the 236 years of our existence, a term predicated not only on treasonous action, but impeachable activity as well.
He has made a mockery of our Americanism by his association with known derelicts, the breaching and ignoring of our Constitution, and belittling whomever differs with his impeachable political ideals.
Apparently Lenington has a lot of free time on his hands to write such letters. Word on the street in Billings is that Lenington has barely even been in to the school superintendent’s office in more than a year, leaving a woman in that office to do all of his work.
For a Yellowstone County elected official to refer to the President’s actions as “treasonous” without even specifically outlining any complaints, seems irresponsible. Especially in light of another Yellowstone County “Pillar of the Community,” Judge Richard Cebull, who forwarded a racist email from his work computer to some of his good ol’ buddies. The email contained a “joke” about Obama’s mother having sex with dogs.
