Jim Walsh is Delusional

It's always nice to have a good laugh, and I got it when I saw the headline for yesterday's article from the Hill:

'The Hill' Article Highlights Walsh Opponent's Slide

Declining Poll Numbers, Lack of Funding Plague Challenger

Now anyone who read the article clearly knows it says no such thing. First off to slide, you would have to go down and no where in the article does it say that Dan Maffei's polls numbers have fallen, but if Jim Walsh has numbers showing this, it's time for him to put his money where his mouth is an show them. The second part of the subhead is just absurd, not only does the article make no such claim, Dan Maffei is better funded at this point than any of Walsh's opponents.

Jim Walsh is living in fantasy land, but that is good for us. Either the featherweight triumvirate of Gage-Cookfair-Stonecash is just telling Walsh what he wants to hear or they are really, really bad at what they do, I'm guessing it a little of both. However if Walsh keeps this up, it's going to make him much easier to beat. He's too arrogant to think he can be beat and that is going to be the very opening needed to beat him.

And for anyone worried about poll numbers, there's only one number to be concerned with at this point in the race, Jim Walsh votes with George Bush 88% of the time.

Walsh is trying to shape reality with misleading statements. First thing- activists like us should point out the lies, and spread the truth to everyone we know. Second thing- Dan needs to get his name exposure up. With our help in the field through canvasing and in the pocketbook with donations. This way poll numbers for Dan will go to where they need to go ASAP. We cannot wait until the last minute- this is a golden opportunity to crush Walsh under the boot of a free and fair election!!

I don't think this is Walsh being delusional insomuch as I think he is doing the same thing he did when he released his poll numbers: he is defining people's perceptions and he is discouraging the DCCC from seeing this as a competative race and pumping money into it. I agree, we need to get Dan's name out there every way we can. But the Maffei campaign has to do its job in shaping perceptions as well!

There's a difference between shaping perceptions and making stuff up. But either way, it's a reflection of Jim Walsh and his campaign and the gutter politics tactics they are planning on using.
