Geezers: Term Wins No Votes, Friends

We are just so tired of the arrogant politicians at the Federal and state levels, and now Adam Graves is bringing that disgusting format to the local race for City Council. Apparently Mr. Graves has no respect for senior citizens and the valuable contributions they have brought to our country and communities. A quick perusal of his website exposes a gross example of his age prejudice. Just check out the image on his Campaign Support page. This is an obviously totally created picture in which Mr. Graves is stating his opponent is a “Geezer Dingbat.” Now as we all know, particularly Mr. Graves who states he is the co-founder of a marketing firm, there are no uncontrolled elements in a marketing plan or its materials. So basically Mr. Graves is demonstrating publicly his opinion of senior citizens. They are “Geezers” and “Dingbats.” Nice. Hope your parents are proud of you/Susan & Jeff Crowe, letter to Coeur d'Alene Press editor. More here.

Question: Did challenger Adam Graves help or hurt himself by poking at 75YO incumbent Ron Edinger's age during the dust-up over the use of iPads at the Coeur d'Alene candidates' forum last week?
