It is standard operating procedure for a campaign to release a transcript of remarks along with a press release on the day of a big announcement such as announcing your candidacy.
As of 1:46pm neither the DEGOP
nor Michael "Newbold" Castle
has released a transcript. UPDATE II:"The speech lasted about 15 minutes and I hardly heard a damn word. Rep. Castle was speaking into a microphone with no amplification system."
...and that is not the funny part. Just read the whole DWA post.
It makes me want to form a Delaware Blogger's Association so I could give Mike some kind of award. UPDATE:
According to at least one person who went to the Leg Hall event - "There is no transcript."
Very interesting indeed. To pull something like this, Castle must be more on the ropes than I ever imagined. He is hoping that this break with the basic conventions of campaigning goes unnoticed
and has judged that the possibility of this being noticed is less damaging than having the transcript of his half-truths, obfuscations and out right lies in circulation.
