ALL IN THE FAMILY -- DOUR REPRESENTATIVE JOHN MICA'S WORRIED -- HIS HEAD-BUTTING INCIDENT SUGGESTS THAT THE BULLY AND HIS THUGS ARE LOSING THEIR MINDS
JOHN McCAIN, the nominee of JOHN MICA's imploding political party is against earmarking and promises to veto laws with earmarks and tell the names of those who sponsored them, making them famous.
JOHN MICA's in the habit of putting earmarks for his campaign contributors in federal laws, as revealed by St. Augustine Record reporter Peter Guinta.
JOHN MICA's brothers (DAVID MICA, DAN MICA), daughter (D'ANNE MICA) and son (J. CLARK MICA) have worked in public relations and lobbying for Big Oil, credit unions, the U.S. Department of HUD, Governor Crist, PBS&J and other powerful interests).
Lobbying and public relations is the family business, to the point where Sanford Airport Commissioners actually introduced D'ANNE MICA as "CONGRESSMAN MICA's daughter" before voting her a no-bid contract.
Lobbyists have a bad name this year.
Color MICA worried. MICA was so worried at the RNC that he head-butted a TV news cameraman. MICA looked like he was losing his mind.
What's MICA going to do in a debate?
Pound his shoe on the table?
Talk about his "influence" with earmarks?
Change the subject?
If so to what?
Any subject you pick, MICA's losing votes -- from the economy, Iraq, conflict of interest, Big Oil, the environment, veterans, the middle class, lobbyist influence, corruption, Tom DeLay, Jack Abramoff, Bob Ney, comparing welfare recipients to "alligators," calling President Clinton "a little boogger," voting against raising the minimum wage (though 72% of Florida voters supported our Constitutional amendment in 2004), gasoline prices, energy insecurity, airline monopoly, unsafe bridges, government contract abuses, earmarks, corruption.
MICA is the fixer who helps empower the likes of City of St. Augustine CITY MANAGER WILLIAM B. HARRISS, while opposing every decent idea ever proposed and presiding over a dysfunctional family where his two brothers and two kids make money as lobbyists and PR spinmeisters.
