Matt Chancey thankfully lost the elections, but remember the amount of nonsense they spouted in the run-up to the elections?
Water Words that Work, has a great article, on what exactly was wrong with Matt Chancey and the issues he represented.
So if you hadn’t liked Matt Chancey you might:
“Post comments on Chancey’s YouTube video accusing him of being a shill for corporations that want to build dangerous and polluting nuclear power plants that threaten the health and safety of Alabama families (assuming you sincerely believe that to be the case, of course).
Point out that the corporations Chancey is shilling for are accountable to anonymous shareholders rather than local citizens.
Do point out that the responsible way for the state to help residents save money is by investing in conservation and clean, renewable energy, not by giving handouts to wealthy corporations.”

has an interesting, thought-provoking article on Matt Chancey being crowned the epitome of manliness by Old Spice-sponsored contest.
Matthew Chancey won $2,000 and some Old Spice products. Is that a big deal? Not really. But the fact that this person was approved as a finalist by Old Spice and voted winner by nearly 10,000 people as an icon of manliness to follow, is what is disturbing here. If this isn’t a sign we need to seriously reevaluate notions of masculinity in this country, I don’t know what is.
Chancey was chosen with nine other finalists that the contest claims “epitomize the manliness that used to exist before the arrival of metrosexual pretty boys.” But apparently this “manliness that used to exist” regresses all the way back to when women didn’t have the vote.
