Three blind GOP mice...see how they run

I love when Becky at Preemptive Karma writes about Oregon Republicans. Being a former insider, she knows what she's talking about. Her perspective on the current GOP goobernor wannabees is hilarious.

She begins with Kevin Mannix, whose been padding his personal bank account with campaign contributions from LoveDaddy Loren Parks. And then Becky watches Saxton and Atkinson try to run away from Mannix's foibles:

Ron Saxton, whose campaign was obviously behind the leak of the story to The Oregonian, offers this hilarious comment:

Saxton said simply, "I have no comment on it."

Jason Atkinson, in a most amusing display of talking-points mastery, plays on the bunk that the liberal Oregonian was just trying to pick the next governor for us (as opposed to trying to sell newspapers):

Atkinson said, "I’m not going to have the agenda of a newspaper set the agenda of the governor’s race."

As if neither of these two are rubbing their hands together with glee that Mannix is is sweating. What a couple of toadies.
