The Creepy Pro-Metro Photos Keep Coming

By Loudoun Insider

First we had the finger twiddling of David Ramadan and Matt Letourneau in front of a horrified Bob McDonnell, and now we have this photo of Ken Reid at Ashburn Patch – I am still too horrified and in shock to even write a snappy headline or caption.  I threw up in my mouth a little bit, I’ll chime in after I recover.


  • Barbara Munsey says:

    LI, don’t ever rank on the “mean girls” again.

    You and Mr. Tax Pig are getting into the realm of high school burn book crap. It’s shrill, and going beyond desperate and into pathetic.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    Chill out, Barb. This is a weird photo.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    Maybe part of the Ken Reid benefits package for flip flopping was Matt Letourneau getting Barb to become Reid’s blog defender.

  • Barbara Munsey says:

    I have lots of photos of me that are pure Forrest Gump effect, and I bet everyone does.

    This photo of Ken would seem to give the lie to some of b*tchy/gossipy stuff pre-parade, that he was “hiding out” because of what he had done, but consistency hasn’t been the long suit of the opters, except in over the top.

    And it’s getting a bit over the top in the adolescent frenzy.

    By all means though, keep it up. It will surely do the group even greater good than the fake flyers, the church spam, and so on did to win tens of people to the cause.

    Ken Reid
    1 if by toll
    2 if by metro

    “the voters are coming, the voters are coming.”

    That guy is a joke

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    The damage from this vote is done, and I am not out to make friends with people like Ken Flippy Reid. Go yell at all of his fellow LCRCers who are not following McDonnell’s orders.

  • Math says:

    And I know every one should care about fiscal sanity, but when Eugene’s big pig on a trailer shows up at a 4th of July parade, it really is not hard for people to just think local politics is a joke and it makes people just tune it out, which is the last thing we need. People should be engaged locally, but when you have a creepy guy who runs a hate organization rolls a giant pig through a 4th of July parade, maybe its time to rethink who is running this county.

    Basically the 4th of July parade was a marketing event for local politicians who are already starved for attention.

  • Loudoun Outsider says:


    You put me in the uneviable position of defending Ken Reid?

    What is weird or creepy about this photo?

    It shows Ken (presumably at a 4th of July celebration) wearing a dollar store colonial hat, carrying a small American flag and hamming it up for the camera?

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    Photo caption:

    “Who needs Cialis when you got Metro?”

    Awful, I know, but if I had kids at the parade and saw him coming towards them I would gather them into a defensive position and cover their eyes.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    Alternate caption:

    “The subject of the infamous Ron Speakman Photo is revealed”

  • Baron Rosedown says:

    That is seriously some nasty athlete’s foot. I kid, well not really.
    Reid is a media-fame-whore.

  • Citizen_Who_Votes says:

    Ken “I feel your pain” Reid hamming it up for the camera? Surely you jest! What a buffoon! He makes Delgaudio seem reserved and grave.

  • BlackOut says:

    Where the tax pigs handing out sour grapes.

  • Barbara Munsey says:

    It’s beyond sour grapes, Colleague.

    This is getting to be projectile bile.

    I think they’re hiring a Linda Blair lookalike to ride the pig at the next event. Then there will be the distorted voice tape growling “KKKKKEEEEEEEEENNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!” Mercedes McCambridge style as pea soup rains.

    It’s going to be a rilly big shew. Very edgycleverfunny.

    The Opt Out site has a button to donate to their cause. They’ve got $125 already.

    Are they organized as a nonprofit or what?

  • I actually think the photo of Ken is cute. I see the red and blue – was he wearing white sneakers as well? 🙂

    While I’d the first to nominate Supervisor Reid for the “Golden Flip-Flop Award”, I also think we have larger issues to attend to with the Presidential election just months away.

    There will be plenty of time for finger pointing and blame assigning in the coming years, after the Silver Line hits budget overruns of 75%+ from contractors who are friends, relatives, and neighbors of MWAA Board members. There will be plenty of support for separating those who claim the name “Republican” from those who actually embrace the Party’s philosophies after November.

    If we’re unhappy with the decisions those on the current Board make, we’ve got 3 years to recruit candidates who are better representatives of what we stand for. We’re better off in the long run if we put our time and energy into seeking out true conservative leaders who believe what we believe.

  • Barbara Munsey says:

    Good for you, Mr. Rankin, to get back to “let’s focus on November”.

    Speaking of flip flops, how is the whiplash from the turnaround of calling anyone who supported Metro bling dumb and stupid earlier today? 😀

    I DO like the “focus on this November”, because you’re correct.

    Before 2015, if you’re really incensed with Ken Reid, you can move to Leesburg and vote against him.

    (That would reduce growth in the west too, right?)

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    I bet Barb thinks she’s helping her cause.

  • Barbara Munsey says:

    Tell me again how your commentary on this photo helps yours?

  • Stoner Like says:

    Stevens Miller helped me dress up!
