Tim Kennedy on Parade

So let’s say you’re a political candidate with one of the most recognizably Irish names in America. How do you appeal to Polish-American voters if you’re running against a guy whose last name is Stachowski?
Simple. Put a couple American flags, and a bunch of red, white and blue campaign posters all over a municipal fire truck, load up the back with a Grammy-nominated polka band, and enter it in the Cheektowaga Fourth of July Parade!
Then, post photos of the event on your facebook page.
(And when you pull a stunt like this, make sure you place your posters on the fire truck in a way that will obscure every identifier of the municipality that uses the apparatus.)
