Senate not-so-hopeful Nina Hayden blocks me from following her on Twitter

in Peter/The Bay and the 'Burg by

Senate candidate Nina Hayden has made the second biggest mistake of her campaign (other than the mistake of giving up a safe seat on the School Board to run against Jack Latvala): she has blocked me from following her on Twitter.  The last candidate to make this same kind of mistake was Scott Wagman — and we know how that worked out for Wagman.

I understand why Hayden doesn’t want to read my blog.  Because I write what EVERYONE else thinks about her campaign: that she is categorically insane to run against Latvala.  That her claim that “God told me” to run only makes her sound more insane.  That her ability to only raise $300 during the last fundraising quarter is a disgrace, considering there are at least a dozen people in Tallahassee who would gladly write a check for $500 to ANYONE who is running against Latvala.

This is not just what I think…this is what every Democrat worth a damn thinks about Hayden’s campaign. Oh sure, she’s got in her corner some of the same loons that show up every election cycle only to lose race after race.

So go ahead and block me, Nina.  You’re Twitter account won’t matter much past November anyway.
