"Michael Arcuri Trading Cards
Stay tuned for a fun new way to learn about the candidate and the 24th Congressional District!"
This is just plain weird.
Is this the ace up the sleeve of the Arcuri for Congress campaign? I don't get it. Are we voters all supposed to collect these trading cards about Michael Arcuri, like he's some kind of superstar?
I can picture it now: Two twelve year-old boys, sitting under a tree at a picnic table. One says to the other, "I've got the Herkimer County endorsement card." The other kid responds, "Cool! Wait 'til Dad sees that! I'll trade you two announcement speech cards and a jogging shorts card for that one, okay?"
Who thought this up? Really, I'd like to know names. Was it a political consultant? Someone in the DA's office brown nosing for a promotion?
What's worse than the hubris of thinking the the voters of the 24th District are hungry for a "fun new way" to idolize Michael Arcuri is the ongoing neglect of failing to actually produce these promised trading cards. The link has been up for weeks and weeks, but where are the cards?
The anticipation builds... will you be waiting in line when these cards are released?
