Worst. Mailer. Ever.

By Loudoun Insider

The “brain” trust behind the floundering Geary Higgins campaign dreamed up and sent out, at great expense, the worst political mailer I’ve ever seen.  I’ve heard there’s been some shake-up there, but who knows.  After spending who knows what on this garbage there better be.

Higgins tries to ride fully on Frank Wolf’s coattails, throws out some platitudes about transportation, and then tries to convince voters that he will save them from Lyme disease and stink bugs.  No, I am not kidding you.  Voters hate to be patronized and taken for fools.  Higgins will have absolutely ZERO ability to impact the Lyme and stink bug issues.

Here is the main “meat” of the mailer, if you can call it that.  Stink is a better word.



  • Eric the 1/2 troll says:

    “The buffers could be a safe haven for terrorists!!!”

    Don’t give her any ideas, EB. She is on a roll today.

  • Why? Are you looking for something?

  • Barbara Munsey says:

    Nothing but an answer to “both” on your outrage over issues affecting the food and wine industry.

  • Fred says:

    Support from liberals and progressives does not count as bipartisan support.

  • BlackOut says:

    That’s a strange statement Fred.

    What is your definition of bipartisan support? Support from the social conservatives of the Republican party and support from the fiscal conservatives of the Republican party?

    There is a bigger world out there than just R’s.

  • I think what he’s trying to say is that he’s not interested in candidates for whom people who disagree with him on some unnamed matter might want to vote.

    He only supports candidates who would not gain support from the people with whom he disagrees, and strongly wishes for those people to stay home.

    That’s my best guess. It is kind of a tortured statement.

  • BlackOut says:

    You’re likely right David. Heaven forbid a public official actually represent everyone. Tough to take anyone serious who wants someone to only represent the pure and be damned the heathens.

    Fred are you actually promoting a dictatorship over representative government?

  • Fred says:

    What I am saying is Baldwin is a liberal’s liberal and that is where his base of support is.

  • BlackOut says:

    That makes sense Fred, I think this blog format that makes it difficult to look back in the thread causes issues. My apologizes for getting aggressive.

  • Fred says:

    Apology accepted.

  • edmundburkenator says:

    Fred, Baldwin gets support from Republicans who don’t want taxes to keep going up due to our growth mistakes.

    You find, as you should surely know, these national labels tend be less relevant in local politics. Folks are tired of paying more because of growth and Hatrick’s kingdom.

    Baldwin appeals to that group.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    Fred obviously does not know Malcolm Baldwin. Sorry Fred, you boy Geary is toast especially with the obnoxious hyper partisans he has being his ambassadors to the public.

  • He doesn’t know Baldwin at all. He’s just saying what he’s supposed to say. I predict he will end up more pleasantly surprised than he will be able to admit.

  • […] 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 […]

  • […] I need to bring up another absolutely ridiculous communique from the Geary Higgins campaign.  You know, the guy who is going to solve the stink bug and Lyme disease problems.  Higgins just sent out ANOTHER email blast about Lyme disease, with this ridiculously inept […]

  • […] struck a heroic figure in his campaign last fall with his courageous opposition to traffic, stinkbugs, and truth or decency (take your […]
