You Call This a Campaign?

What do you call a campaign that raises no money, gathers no endorsements, has no particular grassroots support, and has absolutely no chance of defeating the overwhelming favorite for the party's nomination on June 10. I call that...the Vern McKinley for Congress campaign.

I mean, seriously, what is this guy doing? As far as I can tell, McKinley to date has a sleepy website that issues a press release or two every month. Even less impressive -- if that's possible -- at the end of 2008, McKinley had $12,143 cash on hand with $10,000 in debt. In contrast, Frank Wolf had $555,251 cash on hand and no debt. Also, Democrat Judy Feder just announced that she raised $310,000 in the first quarter of 2008 alone! Maybe I'm missing something here and McKinley's actually running a strong, off-the-radar-screen campaign. If so, he's certainly keeping it a nice secret. Does anyone know what's going on with this "Reagan Revolution" (whatever that means) Republican?
