I’m getting mixed messages from the Fairfax County Republican Committee and the Northern Virginia Tea Party. FCRC Chairman Jay McConville is wishing me “a wonderful Labor Day weekend” and inviting me to attend Ron Wilcox’s canvass near Chantilly, VA. “I know it’s an important day,” he says, “but I am hoping that you can spare two hours toward our cause.”
But wait! The same Ron Wilcox, leader of the Northern Virginia Tea Party, is also inviting me to his canvass event. “Spare two hours to boycott Labor Day, the day celebrating Big Labor, by working two hours to defeat Barack Obama.”
So which one is it? Is Labor Day an “important day” or is it something we should boycott?
This is what really gets to me every year on Labor Day. Here we are supposed to celebrate the accomplishments of people who brought us such radical concepts as the 40-hour work week and the minimum wage, and the Republicans only see it as another opportunity to “stick it to the liberals” by attempting to redefine the holiday.
By the way, if you want to defeat these guys, the best way to do it is to get out there and talk to voters – by canvassing or making phone calls. Stop by a campaign office whenever you can.
