Just about the time that Huckabee dropped out of the race, I happened to have dinner with our state Republican Party Chairman, who told me he expected that the grassroots efforts he'd previously seen on behalf of Republican candidates was going to be particularly critical in this election cycle.
Too bad, I told him: it just became pretty well dead certain that this was going to be a repeat of Bush I's reelection campaign after he broke his *no new taxes* pledge and gave us his semiauto import ban by executive order in 1989. Between throwing away those five to ten million votes, and those drained from him by the campaign of Ross Perot, for whom about one American in five cast their vote, Bush didn't stand a chance.
And that, my dinner companion told me, was why the Republicans running with McCain needed all the help they could get, boith in getting out the vote and with hard-to-find campaign contributions.
And you can count on me, I told him, to give the party back just exactly what we've gotten from them over the last eight years. Right here you go:
And then I gave him one of these, stood up and left, and let him pick up the check.
thanks for sharing that story... I can’t wait to get one of those postage paid envelopes from the RNC which I will promptly return with a BILL, requesting a REFUND of previous contributions..
