Say what?

Dutchess County Legislator Joel Tyner, in announcing his longshot bid to become the Democratic candidate for governor of New York, said in a prepared statement this week: “It is unconscionable, quite frankly, that Andrew Cuomo has almost completely capitulated to right-wing conservative ideology on tax/budget issues and the neoliberal punditocracy consensus that’s built up over years for Cuomo’s economic talking points that spell only more doom and gloom for New York’s middle class."

"Capitualted to right-wing conservative ideology"?
"The neoliberal punditocracy consensus"?


Look, I'm no expert in campaign methods, but it seems rule No. 1 should be candidates must convey their messages in plain English, not political gibberishspeak.

Statements like Tyner's turn people off and cause them to tune out.

Not what he was aiming for, I'm sure.
