"My son is not a pig" - now that's a subject line!
In Colorado, the big fight over Measures C & D is still raging. The measures would reform their TABOR law, which restricts spending and has had a devastating effect on public services.
Once again, state senate majority leader Ken Gordon is proving a master of the personal, compelling, and interesting email broadcast. This week, he sent out an email with the subject line "My son is not a pig."
The pig, of course, has become a symbol of the right-wing forces in the campaign - with anti-tax crusader Jon Caldara marching around the State Capitol with a pig intended to represent wasteful government spending.
Ken Gordon's email:
Carol [Meredith]'s son, Alex, has autism. She confronted Jon Caldara when he brought the pig to the Capitol. The pig was supposed to symbolize misplaced government priorities and waste.
Now that's a compelling and personal tale.
