The group behind the anti-LDS mailer sent out recently should get their money back. The logic behind the mailer is truly flawed. Here’s a few reasons:

1. Not every LDS person in Gilbert knows every other LDS person in Gilbert. I had no idea Jenn Daniels and Jared Taylor were LDS. So if you believe that LDS people only vote for other LDS people (totally false), you just let us all know which ones to vote for, which is exactly the opposite of what you were trying to do.

2. Most non-LDS folks don’t know that LDS is a term to describe us. They usually call us Mormons (among other things). So you aren’t reaching your target group, but just irritating your “opponents.” Obviously, you are trying to convince all the non-Mormons not to vote for the Mormons. I suppose with all the publicity this is getting, that could cure your problem, but I still think it entitles you to a refund.

3. There are many other ways to use LDS as an acronym. But the use of the word “Da?” That’s usually only for hip-hop and sports talk. I have this vision of Steve Berman in a Vanilla Ice outfit trying rap to me for my vote.

So call up your ad guy and demand a refund. You got hosed!

And after you do that, come on down to the Stake Center, I’d like to introduce you to the missionaries.
