A write-in campaign scenario
Could a write-in campaign work? Listen to this fake campaign ad for radio and T-V:
“Hello, I’m Steve McIntosh … a retired broadcaster and independent-thinking Wichitan for more than five decades. I’m seeking the office of mayor as an independent, write-in candidate. To learn more about my political philosophy and/or make a campaign contribution, go to my web site … steve for mayor dot com. Then simply write in my name for mayor … spelling s-t-e-v-e m-c-i-n-t-o-s-h. As mayor I will be independent of any stringent political organization or philosophy … always acting in what I perceive as the best interests of our community. Look at my platform. If you like it, share it with friends on social media, contribute a few dollars to my campaign, and write in my name on election day”.
Back to reality. The first person who does this will enjoy the novelty of free media coverage because it is new and different.
Could a write-in campaign work? There is only one way to fund out.
Our thought for today is from Albert Einstein:
“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
