Inquiring Republicans Want to Know: "Where's John?"

Posted By on Wed, Jul 28, 2010 at 12:24 AM

John Kitzhaber isn’t getting out and pressing the flesh of Oregonians enough – or at least that’s what the Oregon Republican Party thinks.

In a press release today headlined “Where’s John Kitzhaber?” the party all but accused the former governor of hiding from the people of the state.

“It’s as if this guy expects to be handed the election without actually interacting with voters,” Oregon Republican Party Chairman Bob Tiernan said in the release.  “This tells us that John Kitzhaber has changed little from the unapproachable, isolated and alienated governor who called Oregon ‘ungovernable’ after eight years in office. There are 36 counties in Oregon. How many of them has John visited? Where is he?”

“For months, Kitzhaber has been noticeably absent from campaign stops with Oregonians despite behind consistently down in the polls,” the release continued. “During July, Kitzhaber spoke at a gathering of newspaper managers, made a couple of brief appearances in Corvallis and is planning to make a phone call to a few house parties at the end of the month.  This is in stark contrast to Chris Dudley who is seen almost daily at public events all over Oregon.”

If Dudley and his supporters are going to start asking Kitzhaber questions like that, the ex-governor might want to ask a few of his own – such as:

Where was Chris Dudley before he suddenly decided he wanted to be governor?

Why did he duck out of the debate sponsored by the Oregon Newspaper Publishers Association to attend a Republican fundraiser in Aspen?

Never mind where John Kitzhaber is – Oregonians want to know WHO Chris Dudley is.

And the $64,000 question:

How does Dudley manage to be “seen almost daily at public events all over Oregon”? Has he cloned himself, or is it done with holograms?

    For the past week or so, “Zeo” of the NW Republican blog has had his jock strap in a knot over the prospect of Congress repealing the military’s “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” rule. To hear Zeo tell it, if DADT is repealed and gays are allowed to serve openly in the US military it will mean the end not only of our armed forces but of America, its economic system and civilization in general.
