SIC WILLIE DROPS FRESH POLITICAL BEATS ON THE CITY THAT NEVER SLEEPS
FITSNews – September 30, 2007 – Sure, the New York Mets were eliminated from the baseball playoffs today (with star pitcher Tom Glavine helping ruin Sic Willie’s all-but-assured fantasy championship) but the real news coming out of the Big Apple on this particular Sunday was a provocative piece from NY Daily News columnist Celeste Katz on the potential pitfalls of presidential flip-flopping. Why so provocative, you may ask? Well, because our very own Sic Willie was featured in the article, of course …
“A candidate has to make sure their change of heart connects with voters on a personal level, much like [Ronald] Reagan did when he successfully sold his conversion to social conservatism back in the early 1980s,” said South Carolina consultant Will Folks, who has worked for Giuliani’s ex-state chairman, Thomas Ravenel.
There’s also a sincerity factor to consider – especially when it seems like every candidate who visits Iowa suddenly thinks ethanol, a fuel made from corn, is the best thing since the Beatles.
“There’s an old Southern Baptist expression that nobody’s more beloved in the church than a new believer,” said Folks. “But if people suspect that somebody’s only coming to church to make time with a pretty girl – or in this case, make time with the voters – there’s going to be a backlash.”
Uhh … yeah, like going to church for the sole purpose of scoping out the “visual relief” is something Sic Willie has never done before. Whatever. In fact, it’s amazing he doesn’t fall right through the floor into an eternal inferno the moment he steps through the door. Geez, this guy is unbelievable.
