That VFW PAC endorsement thing is still out there

| October 29, 2010

I just had satellite TV installed and my new provider waited to tell me until after it was installed that they’re “in negotiations” with Fox News, so I have to get my TV news from the alphabets.

Seemingly completely unrelated, Kendrick Meek, the Democrat candidate for Florida’s vacant Senate seat was asked by Bill Clinton to drop out of the race (he won’t admit it and Clinton won’t admit it). You can get the whole story at Ace of Spades.

So, anyway, I watched Meek this morning on one of those alphabets, I think it was NBC’s morning show, whatever it’s called (the POS). Meek ended his interview by saying he’s not giving up his candidacy so Crist can win over Rubio because he has the endorsement of the VFW PAC. That perked up my ears so I went to the VFW PAC’s website to see if it was true. The VFW PAC’s website is down, so I checked out the .pdf copy of the endorsements which I saved weeks ago and sure enough, there’s Meek’s name.

Meek’s poll numbers are at 15% in the three way race, so if the PAC’s intention was to have some influence in Florida, it’s not likely that supporting the badly trailing Meeks was going to do that. In fact, the VFW PAC has probably succeeded in pissing off both of the other more likely candidates.

The PAC may be out of business, but their legacy lives on.

  1. Interesting how we have a Senate race which has a Hispanic candidate, a Black candidate and a White candidate and the Left has asked the Black candidate to drop out in order to help the White guy defeat the Hispanic candidate.

    Imagine what the MF-ing media talking point would be were the White and Black candidates Republican and the Hispanic candidate a Democrat, and former President Bush asked the Black candidate to drop out of the race.

    This is precisely the reason why a VSO shouldn’t be in the business of politics. I stated, on another thread, that if you endorse a candidate, in hopes of having an “in” and your candidate loses, you have effectively lost any ground you may have had with the winner. The VFW has a long road ahead of it because of a few dumbasses. Maybe they should have thought about that before continuing to have a PAC in the first place?

    Oh yeah, hey John, DISH Network won’t let you watch any Fox stuff, btw.

    The VFW was infiltrated and nobody was watching. We can’t let that kind of thing happen, please keep current with your local Legion.

    I will be attending my first convention this year, after 40 years a member.

    Anybody that’s been paying attention KNOWS that the VFW-PAC’s endorsements are a moot point any more. Of course, there are an awful lot of folks out there, asleep at the wheel.

    No kidding, Thor–my asshat soon-to-be-former moonbat Congresscritter and her supporters are still pushing the “ENDORSED BY VFW” (PAC in itty-bitty letters beneath it) posters and claim. Then again, most people aren’t buying it. She’s barely polling 40 percent, depending on how overloaded they stack the poll with Dems.

  7. Your article has proven useful to me. It?s very informative and you are obviously very knowledgeable in this area. You have opened my eyes to varying views on this topic with interesting and solid content.
