Black offers everyone an opportunity to sign her Donald Trump birthday card

U.S. Rep. Diane Black has —  well, at least arguably —  already outdone other Republican candidates for governor in proclaiming her support and admiration for President Trump. Latest gesture (gimmick?): You can now sign a birthday card to the president on her campaign website. (His birthday is June 14 and he’ll be 72.)

Text of a Black campaign email Friday:

On June 14th, President Trump will be celebrating his birthday, and I am hoping to send him a card signed by all of his supporters in Tennessee.

I’ve been proud to stand with our president to pass his agenda and begin to make America great again. On his birthday, let’s show him we’re still with him and that Tennesseans are wishing him a happy birthday and another great year.

I know you are standing with President Trump, and I want you to join me in wishing him a happy birthday. Make sure you get your name on the card before I send it to him!

Note: If you want to sign up, the link is HERE.  Gotta wonder if Randy Boyd, Bill Lee and Beth Harwell will do so.  Probably not, since the email is accompanied by a link for donating to the Black campaign and signing up will presumably get you on a list of potential supporters/donors. But then there could be a follow-up declaring they refused to join Black in wishing the president a happy birthday.

    Oooops, liberal undies showing again Tom! I simply can’t remember you identifying some TACTIC used by the Dean or Bredesen campaign, or any other Democratic campaign for that matter, as a “(gimmick?).”

    I know suppressing ones views 24/7 while writing a blog is tough, and you usually do such a good job of it relatively speaking, but every now and then you slip up. Hopefully, however, I will always be there to point it out to you so it doesn’t become habit forming.

      Much appreciated, Stuart. Would note that the following post on Bredesen’s use of carp caps for fundraising included the same (gimmick?), done prior to seeing this comment. Had planned on putting them up back-to-back almost instantly, but in between the woman I live with interrupted me with a heavy lifting chore. (You’re often the fastest fellow in commenting, I’ve noted.) Back before I went into semi-retirement, one of my favored recollections is being called ‘media moron’ by both a left-winger and a right-winger in letters to the editor of the News Sentinel within the same week (one commenting on an article that arguably cast a Republican in a favorable light and the other on an article arguably casting a Democrat in a favorable light). I’ve also been denounced as a ‘Republican reporter’ and part of the ‘corporate-controlled conservative media’ – along with ‘liberal hack’ and ‘leftie loon.’ But ‘liberal undies is pretty cool and you were first with the phrase. Bias, like beauty, is often in the eyes of the beholder. Would assure you that i really do strive to avoid any bias and, actually, believe myself not to have much one way or the other, just being a political junkie who sees politics as the greatest of all spectator sports.

        I’m “. . .often the fastest fellow in commenting. . . .” because I’m a political junkie who has to admit that your blog is one of my most intractable addictions. I simply can’t believe that any political junkie can possibly exist in Tennessee without subscribing to your blog. I am also a subscriber to The Tennessee Journal so as you can see, I really should take the suggestion of those who are concerned about me and “find a life.” As an addict I can only ask that you never, ever stop writing and I hope to never, ever stop reading and commenting.

    I signed the card and donated to Black’s campaign. I have also donated to the Beavers and Lee campaigns. Not Boyd. Never Boyd. I like gimmicks.
