Fimian Rips Herrity, Compares Him To “Barney Frank and Chris Dodd”


Check out the video, starting around 4:10, and watch as Keith Fimian rips into his Republican rival, Pat Herrity. Although Fimian doesn’t name him, it’s crystal clear who he’s talking about – trading off his name, next step up the ladder, etc. Boy, is this 11th CD Republican primary going  to be fun! 🙂

By the way, I love how Republicans consider “Barney Frank and Chris Dodd” – two smart, effective, progressive Congressmen – to be epithets. Wouldn’t it make more sense to compare people you don’t like to Eric Can’tor and John BONER?  Heh.

But the point is…the crowd of which I speak — the insiders, the status quo, the good old boy network – you know, they live off their political connections, they trade off their names. They are opportunistically ambitious, and all they care about is moving up on the next rung of the political ladder. And that is not what we need now, it is dangerous what we have. Look at where we are.  They will tell you they have experience. “I’ve got experience,” you know. Your experience means nothin’! Barney Frank and Chris Dodd have experience! Look at where we are.

  • This quote of Fimian’s really pissed me off. I don’t recall him turning down any assistance in 2008 from Pat or any other elected official in Fairfax. I don’t recall him whining about “political insiders” of the “good ole’ boy network” when he walked to the nomination in 2008.

    Now he’s got a fight and he’s hitting below the belt. This nonsense alone demonstrates why he’s not the right man for the job.
