Paul Protic just popped out of the proverbial woodwork recently to read a personal letter from RPV Chairman Pat Mullins to the last LCRC meeting announcing Mullins’ endorsement of Dick Black. Paul Protic is a nice man. But woefully out of touch with a majority of Loudoun voters, as evidenced by his disastrous term as LCRC Chairman, where Loudoun County went from six Republican supervisors to two, with one of those eventual winners targeted by Protic’s team for elimination. That election also spawned the Protic Principle, where he was quoted in the weeks before the election as saying “we may not win, but at least we’ll be pure”. Brilliant political philosophy! Where you can’t do squat to further ANY of your political goals IF YOU DO NOT GET ELECTED IN THE FIRST PLACE!
So what has he been up to before popping back into the Loudoun spotlight to read the Pat Mullins Dick Black endorsement? He was campaign manager for the disastrous Congressional campaign of Glen Urquhart in Delaware. Urquhart was a Rehobeth Beach developer (which is where failed Loudoun BOS Chairman candidate and developer Mike Firetti moved after losing!) who ran as a fellow Tea Party candidate with the horrendous Christine O’Donnell. Urquhart became nationally known for his mind boggling comparison of liberals to Nazis. His campaign also utilized some of the tried and true push poll dirty tricks with a heavy abortion emphasis that we have seen here in Loudoun County. Urquhart ended up with a whopping 41% of the vote. They didn’t win, but at least they were pure, and Delaware went from being assured of one Republican Senator and sole Representative to two Democratic Senators and a Democratic representative. Looks like the Protic Principle is coming back strong in Loudoun County. Nice.
UPDATE: For all those offended by this because of Protic’s son’s accident, see my comment. The push poll link above is now dead for some reason (interesting), here’s another one.
