Big Labor might have millions of dollars at their disposal, and an army of paid canvassers harassing people at their worksites, but what they don’t apparently have in Colorado is a lick of skill at getting videos to go viral.
A couple days ago, AFL-CIO Colorado released a lame-ass YouTube video of their staff doing the already-dead-meme Harlem Shake in support of a union payback bill in the Legislature. They tweeted it out no less than 7 times and even got The Denver Post‘s Lynn Bartels to embed it in a Spot blog post.
Despite their massive political infrastructure and the helping hand of Colorado’s top political scribe, in the three days the video has been out they’ve received a whopping….99 views.
Congratulations, AFL-CIO Colorado. That might be the lowest amount of views on any Harlem Shake video anywhere on the internet.
Mike Cerbo, was it really worth wearing a feather boa for 99 views?
Your right David. Not only the "voting laws" but also taxes, gun control and the liberals that live in Denver and Boulder. They couldn't give a crap about rural Colorado. And what about "Jessica's Law" which the democratically held State House and Senate shelved. More important for them to get money and contributions from the likes of Michael Bloomberg because all they do is lick their butts.
OK – while you guys are running around "laughing at liberals" they are in their back rooms trying to figure out how best to disenfranchise normal Coloradans by rewriting our voting laws ensuring busloads of Democrat hacks can go from polling place to polling with same day registration. Have a good time!
