Brian Nemoir, political director for Senate candidate Tommy Thompson sent out an email from his campaign account this week to conservative media surrogates saying there are:
"issues in this race that are extremely significant that will be generated on a day-to-day basis and I look forward to coverage of those issues. [...] There are no shortages of issues to talk about in this campaign. That’s really what we should be talking about."Hmmm what "issues" could he be talking about?
Well, Nemoir attached a video of Tammy Baldwin dancing at a 2010 gay pride rally. Oh, that. Tammy Baldwin is a lesbian. How do we know? Because she said so...years ago.
Nemoir just wanted to make sure Sykes, Belling and their lessers got the message it was time to break out the "L" word.
When questioned about his email, Nemoir said he was acting on his own (dude, you used your campaign account) and Tommy was not aware of the message. Nice try - no dice.
See, Nemoir was just trying to highlight Tommy's "heartland values" against Tammy's threat to traditional marriage - which is really funny for at least 4 reasons we know about.
