PETA is helping Karen Floyd

I received an e-mail from the Karen Floyd campaign last week announcing a dove shoot/fund raiser in Florence on Monday. I’m always impressed to see a candidate host an event different from the traditional stump BBQ. I still love the BBQ & politics combination, however, the candidate for education superintendent has thought out of the box again.

Now, from the good folks at http://www.schotline.com/ we learn that PETA (people for the ethical treatment of animals) has criticized Karen Floyd’s campaign for this horrific event. www.peta.org/mc/NewsItem.asp?id=8947

I just don’t get it. In SC we learn to tote a shotgun before we walk. Does PETA actually think the open criticism of Karen Floyd will hurt her campaign? Go ahead, Karen, tally up the Bubba vote!
