Reminder to self: Check with siblings before running for office

This political attack ad is savage.

I don’t think that Jim, Caryn, Tomi, or Mike would come out for my opponent, but just in case, I don’t think I’ll run. You never know what they might remember of their evil big brother growing up.

Gosar family get-togethers must be fun.

    That’s a lovely message. I really dislike how people act like being family means we must nod along with any- and everything. If he is that awful, then good on his siblings for standing up for what is right rather than standing up for their brother.

    That said, from a quick glance at Wikipedia, it sounds like it’ll be for naught, as the district in question is heavily Republican. So while this was a nice burn, I doubt anything will come of it.

    Thanksgiving is gonna be awkward for the Gosar family ennit?

    Then again Paul has probably been disinvited for years now. “Yeah, something happened to Paul. We love him, but you know…”, said his sister.

    Bonus: Next meteor that comes by is gonna see that glassed crater, think “whoops already been done” and go on its way.

    That is some eclipse-level shade.

    Oh, and Rep. Gosar has responded. Among his dyspeptic spew was the claim that his siblings were all liberal Democrats and were putting politics ahead of family. Which is funny because if you are the only Talibangelical Republican in a family of liberal Democrats, I don’t think they are the ones putting politics ahead of family.

  5. Pierce R. Butler says

    Disturbing family dynamics, all right:

    His mother, Bernadette Gosar, 85, told the New York Times she shared “philosophy and policies” with Paul and was “shocked” and “crushed” by the videos featuring his siblings supporting Brill.

    Betcha this scenario features in one of the tv political sitcom/soap operas in as many months as it takes to write, produce, & edit an episode.
