Signs of Disappointment Haunt McCain Bid
While supporters of Ron Paul raised money in conjunction with this weekend’s anniversary of the Boston Tea Party, people working against the John McCain campaign are said to have held Apostrophe T™ “parties” at locations around the county.
Bob McCarty Writes™ first broke news about activities such as these in a post Oct. 26, 2007. At that time, a member of the group behind the effort spoke on the condition we not reveal his identity or place of residence. In exchange, he shared details of the decidedly-simple, low-tech effort, dubbed the Apostrophe T Campaign™:
It involves simply adding two things — an apostrophe and the letter ‘t’ — to the end of the candidate’s last name whenever it is spotted,” he said, pointing out McCain’s campaign yard signs, literature and outdoor advertisements as worthy targets. The end result, he explained, is that “McCain” becomes “McCain’t™.”
The same confidential source cited in that post revealed today that members of his group felt it was necessary to put additional emphasis on Apostrophe T™ in light of the fact that Senator McCain simply does not seem to be going away.
“When we received word that he was receiving endorsements from The Des Moines Register, the Boston Globe and from Sen. Joe Lieberman, we felt like it was necessary to give the Apostrophe T™ effort another big push before the Iowa Caucuses,” said a spokesperson for the campaign. “So we call any gathering of like-minded anti-McCain folks a ‘party’ and go about our business.”
As of this posting, none of the major polling organizations had issued statements regarding the impact Apostrophe T™ efforts have had on the GOP presidential race to date.
