Tim Spies earned the title of Master Chief Petty Officer during his time in the Navy. I wonder if we could give him the same title for his time in Salisbury too? Because that is what Tim Spies is- petty. Think we are being harsh? We don't think so. Truth be told, we could call him a lot worse. Two nights ago at the Camden Neighborhood Association Forum, Tim Spies looked into the PAC 14 camera and promised the people of Salisbury that he (and his running-mate Terry Cohen) were ready to put all of the old issues behind them in favor of teamwork and professionalism. At the same time, only ten feet away from Tim, laying innocently on the table with all of the other candidates information, was an unsuspecting orange flyer.
What was on that flyer, you ask? Only the most vicious smear campaign to enter any church since the inquisition. Thats right people- there in God's House, Spies was disseminating the names and addresses of his opponents campaign contributors to the public with explicit orders to have those random people tracked down and humiliated for having the audacity to support Boda and Dryden, instead of him.
WTF? Last time we checked we do not live in Soviet Russia and you can give money to any candidate you damn well please. Being punished for it shouldn't even be an option. But hey. Let's give credit where credit is due. While Tim Spies name is in microscopic print at the bottom of the list taking credit for it, at the top is the original leader of the Boda-Dryden contributor witch-hunt- www.sbynews.blogspot.com. Shocker.
You know what Delmarva? We think there should be two awards for Master Chief Petty Officer given out today- one for Tim Spies for running a crooked, despicable campaign that targets the public even as he promises to defend it and one for Joe Albero, whose method of bringing "news" to Salisbury is to consistently make life hell for over half of the Eastern Shore. Good job boys! Your mothers must be so proud.
