Tim Fox: One Funny Guy

Shares

I don’t often have the time to catch the comics page in the Independent Record, but today I was fortunate enough to get a couple of good laughs on the Opinion page. It seems that former Attorney General candidate Tim Fox is troubled by the idea of negative campaigning and mudslinging:

Too often, negative campaigning is rewarded with publicity while attempts at straight talk are seen as insincere and overlooked by the press…There are consequences that come with making unfounded allegations about another person; a realization I came to not during the practice of law, but during the course of my upbringing in Montana.

Given Fox’s despicable, dishonest campaign  last year and the fact that Republican Party’s entire strategy against Dennis McDonald consists of sleazy innuendo based on his work as a defense attorney, one has to wonder if Mr. Fox is either incapable of understanding irony or just continuing the same kind of shameless behavior he displayed as a candidate.
