The New Hampshire Republican party is worshipping the dead. For some reason, Foster’s Daily Democrat published an op-ed attacking Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) by former House Speaker Marshall Cobleigh, the latter of which has been dead since 2009.

[su_center_ad]Scott Brown (R-MA, NH, Wherevs) is Shaheen’s challenger, so they raised the dead to write, “As is usual with poll-driven politicians, Jeanne Shaheen is running television commercials and writing op-ed pieces addressing the dominant problem facing America — skyrocketing gasoline prices — but providing no real solutions,” the op-ed began. “Evan worse, anyone who knows her history also knows that during her entire career she has been a big part of the problem.”

“Shaheen, like a stopped clock, is often correct once or twice a day, and her call for an investigation of possible oil price manipulation makes some sense,” the dead guy continues to write. “However, her position on futures trading could penalize homeowners, farmers and all kinds of traders, as well as cripple our economy.”

Talking Points Memo reports, “There was an unusual wrinkle: Cobleigh died in February 2009. The op-ed was actually a reprint of when it was first published in July 3, 2008.”

The end of the op-ed notes that it was  “submitted by the N.H. Republican Party in response to statements made during a recent debate with challenger Scott Brown.”

Next they’ll be dragging Ronald Reagan’s bones out to give her a stern talking to.[su_csky_ad]

      But not so much since Daley delivered Chicago to Kennedy.

      Well, it works for the NRA, why not the rest of the fringe right!

      • R.J. Carter October 27th, 2014 at 12:10 pm

        And if you’re NOT a dead voter, the NRA has a remedy for that.

          Too true.

          no wonder their health plan is to die quickly!

    The dead are always popular come election time.

    Just this past weekend, Hillary Clinton started running against Ronald Reagan.

    Pretty soon the dead will be the GOP base. This is just practice.

    When reached for comment about the incident the only thing former House Speaker Marshall Cobleigh had to say was ” Braaaaaains. “.

    They still stick pins into the gopee members to make sure that they are still with us.

    Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich on marriage infidelity is DOA, so a dead guy comes through GOP’s Ouija board feigning “skyrocketing gasoline prices” plummeting from 2008 U.S. record $5/Gal, $147/Brl to today’s “Gasoline $2.15/Gal” and USA “Crude Oil (WTI) $80/Brl” Only dead brains vote GOP today.
