Dept. of Idiotic PR
October 10th, 2012

I get about 200 press releases emailed to me every day. There all pretty stupid but sometimes one of them really jumps out.

Today it’s a release from Visintine & Ryan PR on behalf of some guy named Kevin Ryan who claims–well, let’s let the release do the talking:

Will Blacks Vote for Obama?  Black Sphere radio host Kevin Jackson says “not so fast”

Kevin Jackson, radio host of the “Black Sphere,” author and blogger thinks Obama will struggle with this key voting block – here’s why . . .   

Really? I mean, really?

What do we think the over-under is on the black vote for Obama this time around? 96.5 percent? Or 97.0 percent? What’s the absolute, total-implosion, worst percentage Obama is going to pull from black voters? 94 percent? But hey, “not so fast”! Kevin Jackson will “add an unexpected viewpoint to the debates, no matter who wins or loses.  Please let us know if you would like to set something up.”

    Yes, but that’s not the question the question is how many will show up to vote and a number of posts I’ve read have said it won’t be anywhere near 2008 levels.

    He had a good column at Taki’s Mag, lively if a bit smarmy/shticky. Then they replaced him with that Canadian midget woman

    The PR reminds me of the Reuters piece about fear of Dem registration in D.C. dropping to a **mere** 75%–thankfully for Washington party elders that crisis never materialized
