Geary Higgins Scares The Crap Out Of Everyone!!!

By Loudoun Insider

Well, we all know now that battling stink bugs is one of the primary planks of Geary Higgins’ campaign platform (who could forget the worst mailer ever?).  And as this recent Washington Post story states, stink bug populations have already taken a nose dive just with the THREAT of Geary Higgins being elected.  Although I have not seen any data to back it up, tick populations also seem to be down this year, surely in response to Higgins’ stated threats against them and Lyme Disease as well.  Nothing scares stink bugs and ticks more than Geary Higgins!

Even the LCRC knows that Geary Higgins is scary.  Scarier than politics they say.  This is directly from this announcement posted on the LCRC website:

What’s Scarier than Politics?

Geary Higgins for Catoctin Supervisor

Did no one see how ridiculous that looked when they posted it???  When it comes to the Geary Higgins campaign, it seems to be Scary Halloween all season long.

  • Terminal have-it-both-way-itis?

    That’s what I’m calling it. LI was just sure as fire that I was in the bag for HCA because I worked for one of the PR folks in her home.
    Then Baldwin hires me to do the roof on a barn and some minor stuff….and I do not support his policies in the Catoctin seat. It’s because I seperate my business and my personal endorsements. I always have.

    Baldwin is a very pleasant fellow, and I like him personally very much. I disagree with him on many of his positions on issues, but i also agree with him on many issues. Thing is, I actually agree with all of Mr. Higgins positions on the issues.

    And bashing me is not going to help Baldwin one bit. He’s going to have to stand on his own admissions….and this ain’t the year to be talking loudly (if you intend to say the things he has).

  • Barbara Munsey says:

    intrigue, David already played the “gibberish” card. Nice one with “crappy”, though! Kudos for sticking with a winning metaphor.

    eb, following Eric around the LTM is dulling your usual edge: his standard variant is to state what he’d like to argue I said, then say “cue Barb in 3…2…1…”.

  • Wolverine says:

    In terms of environmental issues, Baldwin seems to look like McGimsey in a suit and tie.

  • Barbara Munsey says:

    Wolverine, on policy I’d say they are very closely aligned.

    I’ve spoken with him on occasion, and he is far more intelligent and personable, hence possibly far more dangerous with the out-there ideas.

    Especially if you add in the legal expertise.

  • edmundburkenator says:

    My usual edge? Is that a compliment?

    “Intellegent = dangerous”

    This is why I’m not a Republican anymore.

  • Intriguing says:

    Wolverine, I have personally met the man and sat down with him so that I might discern his particular views on this subject. When I asked him about his perspective on these issues, he grimaced so hard that it was as though I’d struck him in the face with a hickory switch.

    He assured me that he was a pragmatic thinker on the environment, and given this dialogue and a thorough examination of his past statements and actions, I must say that I am fully inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt.

    Now, I know that you are a man who believes in leaving no stone unturned, and who prizes intelligence of every variety (SIGINT, ELINT, HUMINT) with the goal being to arrive at well-founded, thoughtful, and accurate conclusions.

    Let me put before you some very sound advice that you were gracious enough to offer me just a few short weeks ago regarding another candidate: Go out and find the target; sit down with the target; and pose whatever questions you wish directly to the target. Then, and only then, report back on what you have found.

    For to do otherwise, is to violate the basic dictate of “Congregate Intelligence.”

  • Barbara Munsey says:

    Yes eb, I think damaging policies forwarded by intelligence and an agreeable personality have the potential to gain more ground (and thus implement more of their consequences) than if promoted by a cutout who wastes time in meetings complaining that staff hasn’t told the MIT grad how to find it on her IPad.

    And if they’re both elected, that’s two votes, and maybe more if she lets him do the talking.

  • Barbara Munsey says:

    intrigue, that’s laying it on a little thick to say eb leaves no stone unturned, unless perhaps you were being ironic?

    He seems to have a habit of expecting others to go to the library for him, while remaining complacent in some drive-by positions.

  • edmundburkenator says:

    Yes, you’re right Barbara.

    We need more dumb guys that take their orders from the party/business community (where the REAL intelligence can be found). No damaging policies there!

  • Intriguing says:

    “intrigue, that’s laying it on a little thick to say eb leaves no stone unturned, unless perhaps you were being ironic?”

    Ah, actually I was speaking to Wolverine, while also doing a crappy (there’s that word again) impression of BPM in full bluster.

  • edmundburkenator says:

    Barbara, Intriguing was talking about Wolverine.

    Still with the library thing. Good grief.

  • edmundburkenator says:

    Coming up next: Barbara’s 500 words on how Intriguing REALLY MEANT to be talking about me.

  • Barbara Munsey says:

    eb, are you SURE you aren’t Eric’s better sockpuppet? No, I don’t think dumb guys are better. I think smart guys who can charm though bad policies are potentially dangerous. For the third time.

    Sorry, intrigue. And are you a South Park fan?

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    Back to the topic at hand.

    Geary Higgins is scary for western Loudoun.

  • edmundburkenator says:

    Eric and I do tend to agree often. But I can assure you he and I are two different people.

    Yes, bad policies getting through are bad (see growth rate).

    But smart policy guys are better able to shape better policies in the first place.

    Now, there are plenty of smart, “how can I shape the board to get a better profit margin” guys out there. There is a difference between good policy and certain company’s good profit margins.

    Do you not agree?

  • Barbara Munsey says:

    I know you’re two different people, who aren’t too different.

    LI, we’re talking about “scary”, we just disagree on who may end up being scarier in that district.
