The election date has been set. July 12, 2011 will be a historic day in this country. Never before have 9 recall elections been conducted on one single day (6 against GOP leaders who support Gov. Walker and 3 against Dem leaders who fled the state in an attempt to stall Walker’s bill). Many of you have expressed interest in helping. Now is your chance. Use your dual gifts of words and wit and help us make history in Wisconsin.
Let me give you a brief summary. Our senate district (10) is going to be one of the most difficult areas to re-claim. Republican Sen. Sheila Harsdorf has spoken for this large district in the state for decades. Her campaign pamplets showed her in camo, a gun, and a dead turkey. She grew up on a farm. Basically, she’s beloved in NW Wisconsin. She is also a smarter, sweeter version of Sarah Palin or Michelle Bachman. She toes the GOP line effectively without ever getting angry. She doens't have those "foot-in-mouth" moments like Palin. In my estimation, her big downfall is her lack of originality. She seems very uncertain of herself when the argument is reframed. That, my friends, is where you all come into play.
This is what we need - a common slogan displayed everywhere:
1) People standing on the corners with signs
2) Pamplets on cars
3) Pamplets to hand out door-to-door
We want the same, simple message on all of these. We won't attack her personally - just the Walker/Harsdorf message. It needs to be simple. That will be the challenge for most of you. You are wordsmiths…and I’m asking for a message that will speak to the commoner in WI district 10. It needs to unite the people while indicting the corporate interests attempting a takeover.
