The Big Lug Nut's Chief of Staff made news with a Dummycrat hit job on John McCain.
Patrick Dillweed, err Dillon...
said the governor was concerned that McCain's trip would divert local law enforcement from the flood recovery effort to provide security for McCain.
"As a courtesy — and as we did for Senator Obama — we privately made an effort to make sure that Senator McCain knew that state and local resources were still being deployed to support the flood fight and that now may not be the best time for a campaign trip," Dillon said in a statement.
That would have been true for last week in an underwater Cedar Rapids.
This week they even had time for a wedding in Columbus Junction, where McCain visited.
If the Mayor and the Sheriff have time to get involved in the wedding, then it was more like a diversion rather than diverted.
And the scientific community is united in that fact.
Turns out that was correct as, per Politico, the Mayor didn't have a problem ...
"Certainly, Mr. McCain's visit today in no way hindered any relief efforts or any of our efforts on recovery or security or whatever we were working on," [Dan] Wilson said. He said McCain's staff called him Wednesday night and Thursday to be sure the visit would not cause a problem.
McCain's camp noted he provided much of his own security.
Politico also notes the political background of Dildo, err Dillon...
Dillon is not just a state government functionary. He's an experienced political operative who ran Culver's gubernatorial campaign in 2006 and worked on John Edwards's 2004 caucus effort. In other words, he knows what he's doing.
The Big Lug Nut knew what he was doing too.
