We heard along with the rest of the world Wednesday morning that Harford County Executive David Craig had joined Team Rudy, signing on as Maryland co-chair of the Giuliani presidential campaign (http://www.joinrudy2008.com/article/pr/1007).
Craig joins his old buddy, ex-governor Bob Ehrlich and Anne Arundel County Executive John Leopold as supporters of the 9-11 hero.
What I’m wondering is whether anyone saw or remembers the spoof-quality Fred Thompson for President video shot on Main Street in Bel Air this July featuring, among others, Craig’s boy-wonder Director of Human Resources, Scott Gibson.
Gibson, who played the role of a man-on-the-street-who-just-happens-to-love-the-Law-and-Order-star, joined Harford Republican Central Committee chairman Mike Geppi and some completely weird announcer guy in the Internet video.
“I can tell you I’m voting for him for president this time around. I think he’s the right man for the job,” Gibson recited.
Also note the appearance of soon to be former state senator Bob Hooper, who overacts the role he must have been given of “politician hard at work.” Hooper seems to scarcely have enough time to glance up from his legislation to contemplate the questions being fired at him by the annoyingly sunny and overzealous questioner. Busily at work, Hooper nonetheless accurately prognosticates it’s “time for change.”
Certainly educated grown ups like Craig and the young Mr. Gibson can operate a half-billion dollar budget whilst disagreeing upon who can beat Hillary.
It’s my guess that Craig, unlike human resources boy, will not hide under an out of town baseball cap when appearing in public in support of his candidate. Maybe the ‘P’ is for pander.
