You don't know what you are talking about. I spent two years of my life on that campaign. The "dumb-asses" were not the Simons or anyone they willingly employed.
Besides, why are you dragging this up, two years later?
Simon may not be as unfit for office as Kerry, but he is unfit. I voted for Davis. And when he ran in the recall election, he got no traction, and dropped out early. Why? Because he comes across as an empty suit, who has not done his homework. He also has a problem with telling the truth IMO. He isn't going to run for any political office again, ever.
