Many of you know that I occasionally can’t resist the temptation to point out when a member of either state party apparatus has jumped the shark with regard to the use of political hyperbole. You may remember this instant classic from the state Democratic Party. This time, however, it is the state Republican Party that is tickling my funny bone, courtesy of Communications Director Ryan Williams and his press release today on Governor Lynch and the Financial Resources Mortgage scandal.
For those of you who have already seen the press release, I hope you caught the awesome subtitle: State Government in Chaos as Lynch Backs Off Disclosure Order. As an aside, I also appreciated the Lynch Flinches alliteration in the main title, although I've heard that one before. I have actually driven by the Statehouse and several state office buildings today, and I can report that everything is still standing. These new poll numbers look pretty sturdy, too.
I am all for full disclosure on the FRM matter, and there are legitimate questions to be asked of both the Lynch Administration and former Attorney General Kelly Ayotte. But it is a bit of a bummer to see both sides become almost frantic in their attempts to score political points on the back of a scandal that has done irreparable financial harm to many individuals. I guess it's inevitable, but I still don’t like it. Anyway, I should at least thank Ryan Williams for this morning’s entertaining diversion into chaos theory.
