The Lametude, it burns


How low does a candidate have to sink to get to the point where he crows about endorsements from people who not only do not live in the district he or she is running in but doesn’t even live in the same state?

About this low, apparently.

Joel Manby, a native of Battle Creek, Michigan, today announced his endorsement of Brian Rooney in Michigan’s 7th Congressional District.

Manby, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Herschend Family Entertainment, was recently featured in the first season of Undercover Boss on CBS. His episode was the second most watched of the season and drew more than 16.72 million viewers nationally.

Although I live in Georgia, Michigan is still close to my heart,” said Manby. “We need dramatic change in Michigan government to get it back on track and Brian Rooney has what it takes. He is a proven leader and patriot and he isn’t a politician. We need common sense in government, not more lifetime politicians. I support Brian Rooney”.

Herschend Family Entertainment runs amusement parks. Dollywood. Silver Dollar City in Branson, Missouri. Wild Adventures.

Hard to understand why a guy who lives in Georgia is so keen to change the member of Congress representing a district that’s over 700 miles away.

Congrats, Brian. You must be so proud.

I’m just sayin’…
