New campaign cards

People around District 2 who haven't seen me out and about yet are likely to see me on a street near you handing out cards that look like this.

They are the creation of my wife. I think they are unique and attention-grabbing, and a testament to her ingenuity.

This just goes to show that wives are the best thing to have around in a local campaign.

Mr. Oatney,
These cards look really, really good! Kudo's to your wife. Good job, Nicole!
A slightly less positive note - you have absolutely got to CHANGE your picture on the blog page (which I'm assuming you're using as a campaign tool, nice touch). There's no real nice way to say this so I'll just do it and hoope you understand - The picture makes you look like an ol' bubba boy asking the hooter's girl to bring you another helping of ribs and beer.
Being big (and forgive me if you're not - the picture really isn't flattering) is not an issue. You're running for county commission so get a picture that lets people have a good idea of what you look like and that at least you won't show up to commission meetings with dribbles on your shirt (not that Nicole would let you out of the house like that - she seems to have a lot on the ball - good wives are a blessing and hard to find, Kudo's to you for finding her).

Wives are the best things to have around, period. How we could exist without them, I do not know.

Nicole did a great job with the cards, by the way. If you do have extra after all is said and done, I'd love to have one.

You need to get a life. Find a hobby, get a dog, write a book...whatever. If you honestly have nothing better to do than criticize how a person looks or the picture they choose for their own personal website, then you are a sad, sad man and I feel sorry for you.

Mr. Gaits,
The comments about the picture were meant to be constructive. For a personal website/blog the picture is fine. Nothing wrong with it at all. However, for a political campaign website/blog that picture doesn't work. In fact, it's worse than doesn't work. And the comment that I made wasn't original with me - it was made by a friend, a conservative I showed the site to. If she thought it, then others will think it too and I thought it worth passing along. I toned it down a bit - she can be a little scathing in her comments. Didn't mean to pick a fight.

It's very unfortunate. In this day, when we are supposed to be so enlightened, there are still those among us who would rather our politicians look good first and worry about a good ideas, positive ethics, and strong morals later.

And then people wonder why our country has the problems that it does.
