Well, that didn’t take long.

Tip o’ the hat to top commenter Timmy’s Cat for doing the Google Fu on new GOP candidate for AZ Gov Christine Jones.

We at the GrassRoots Tea Party are very excited to have Christine join us Wednesday night to speak. She is one heck of a dynamic speaker and lays it all on the line as to what we all need to do and how there is hope to keep Arizona RED and not fall into the hands of the Liberals/Progressive Socialists. She will definitely get you on fire.

Alrighty then. Just goes to show what I’ve said here before, which is that affluent and successful Republicans are every bit as likely to be raging wingnuts as their working class counterparts, if not more so.

And then I scrolled through Jones’ Twitter timeline and found this:

christinejonestweet

Jones is not only young but has been an executive at a popular Internet web hosting company. How can she not be familiar with The Onion? And I don’t necessarily think you need to be fluent in all things pop culture to be qualified to be Governor of Arizona but not knowing that the Onion is a parody reflects a disturbing disconnect from it. Not exactly a great demonstration of her much-vaunted research skills either.

    Maybe there IS something to those studies claiming that conservatives are dumber than liberals…either that or there is secret Bond-villan-esque factory out there churning out robotic young conservative idiots to destroy our economy.

    Run by a bald guy posting cat videos on the internet :-)

    Anyone else remember those old campaign buttons from the 50’s and 60’s “Better Dead than Red”?

    Which is in itself proof that the teabaggers have no brains to explode from the irony.

    . Jones is already putting a campaign team together and plans to hire Brian Seitchik, a GOP campaign operative

    Sumpthin is going on here. There is not much on Jones and the inter toobz except GoDaddy and THIS yawnfest blog. (format look familiar?)
    Seitchik apparently worked for Rubio and Durbin among others. Nothing in Jones past adds up to TeaPotty style mouth foaming. Whole thing sounds scripted and phony and cynically manipulated by a hired gun.

    Looks like another one is going to use then lose the GOP base.

    tanks btw

    […] Jones, the internet executive of whom you’ll recall from an earlier blog post of mine was somehow unaware the The Onion is a parody publication, was interviewed by Yvonne Wingett Sanchez of the AZ Republic. Her answers to Wingett […]
