(Bumped into Friday–really? They didn’t buy the domain name before they sent the email? – promoted by Colorado Pols)
I posted this over at Denverpols, but I thought it was funny enough to share on the main site too. I tried entitling it “
Carol Boigon Chris Romer means business” but apparently strikethrough doesn’t work in titles. –John
Whenever I see a campaign send a correction, I’m always more inclined to go back and read the original. Usually it’s just a wrong day, or an event that got canceled, but occasionally it’s downright funny. That brings us to today’s “Boigon means business” email…
(Punchline after the jump)
Carol Boigon’s mayoral campaign sent out an email today entitled “Boigon means Business” It was a pretty standard campaign email, with one of the only interesting points that she was launching a new website, which I imagine was supposed to be a site talking about Boigon’s business background.
When I clicked on the link though, it took me to…wait for it…Chris Romer for mayor. So either some Boigon staffer sent out an email with a link to Romer’s site, or someone must have bought the site and redirected it to Romer’s page (is it possible that Boigon’s people sent a link to a page that they hadn’t even bought, let alone built yet?)
As I can’t imagine why anyone but Boigon would own Boigonmeansbusiness.com prior to the email blast, I would guess someone was Johnny on the Spot with the purchase.
Now that’s comedy.
Here is the email (links don’t seem to work when I copy/paste, but the line “a new site” was a link that went to Romer).
Surrounded by a group of supporters, I just turned in the petitions to put my name on the ballot to be the next Mayor of Denver. After turning in my petitions, we marched from the Denver Elections Division to the 16th Street Mall to talk to voters about my unique record of effectiveness, values and resolve to bring Denver together to get our economy moving. See the video or read the press release.
I’m also excited to share with you that we have launched a new website! I hope you’ll take a minute to visit our new site and join us on Facebook and Twitter so you can be informed about our campaign’s latest events and happenings.
I may be the shortest candidate in the race, but I have no shortage of ideas and resolve when it comes to doing what’s right for Denver. That’s why today, I am announcing the Boigon Means Business Tour so that I can share those ideas with you. Over the next 60 days, I will be making weekly stops throughout the city to discuss my ideas for addressing the challenges and opportunities facing Denver. In the coming weeks I will be sharing with you why I’m the best candidate in the race and when it comes to moving Denver forward, I mean business!
P.S. I am deeply grateful to all of you who donated last month and helped us reach our goal of 150 donors in the last 150 hours of the month! Let’s keep the momentum going!
