Do you know that they are, in fact, RINO’s? Or is this simply guilt by association?

A mitter and a Rudy person. Probable RINO scent. Need more data but my spidee antenna is up on the direction the party under Steele wants to take itself. Palin, swords up and charge.

Gail Gitcho, the Mid-Atlantic regional communications director for John McCain’s presidential campaign, will serve as press secretary, CNN has learned. Gitcho was also deputy press secretary for regional media for Mitt Romney's presidential campaign.

Team Romney ping!

Mitt is like an aggressive, opportunistic MRSA infection for weak, decayed liberal Republican organizations with dusty, hacks hanging on for one last paycheck..

Zombie time comes to the RNC.

Two areas the McCain campaign was particularly adept at:G-2 and propaganda. WAY TO GO, RNC!

The next time the RNC calls me begging for money, I’ll tell them just to get some from their pet RINO romney.

The GOP already has a heavy cred gap. This won’t help.

"Gail Gitcho, the Mid-Atlantic regional communications director for John McCain’s presidential campaign,
will serve as press secretary, CNN has learned.
Gitcho was also deputy press secretary for regional media for Mitt Romney's presidential campaign."


" Time's Karen Tumulty reported Sunday that Virginia state GOP Chairman Jeffrey M. Frederick
made "the connection between Barack Obama and Osama bin Laden:
'Both have friends that bombed the Pentagon. Monday's Washington Post reported the McCain campaign distanced itself from the comparison:
"Gail Gitcho, a McCain spokeswoman, also denounced Frederick's remarks, calling them 'not appropriate.'" "

“Stuck on stupid.”

You said it. Should be the motto of the Republican party – find a formula that loses for you, and stick to it.

Bingo! Thank God the GOP has another year or so to get its act together. It better happen or true conservatives will jump ship and pass up a golden opportunity to shake things up with stunning victories at the polls - not to mention guaranteeing Dem wins because of third party attractions.

Damn CNN takes forever to download on this crummy 56K dial up line.

The RNC is completely irrelevant.

I hope no FReepers are giving money to this RINO infested snake pit. If you are, QUIT! :)

I can see that . . . but unless someone worked for the Thompson or Hunter campaigns (by itself, frankly, not much by way of resume-enhancers), your profiling just ensnared the vast majority of Republican operatives.

My message to to the RNC (Really Not Conservative)

I got them to cut down on sending me their crap after I Freeped their buildings (310-320 First Street SE and 425 2nd ST NE) using the great DC chapter Freep techniques. It’s really as much fun freeping these RINOs as it is freeping Code Pinko or the Dems.

These RINO suits are in business for the money, to become Congressional staffers, and eventually, to hold office as they vote for pork, illegal immigrants, Sara Brady style gun control, etc.

One of the best digs I used: At Rep Senatorial Hqtrs (425 2nd ST), they were holding a Friday afternoon beer and b-b-q outside the building in a courtyard. From the sidestreet, I could see a bunch of placques on the cement wall (presumably for donors). I yelled “How many Wheaties box tops do I need to get one of those placques?” They were visibly uncomfortable—Ignore him! Say nothink to him! (Col Klink imitation)

When I got home on Monday, I wrote a letter with my name and address telling them I was the guy outside their offices the past Friday. I suggested that they REALLY might not want to send me their junkmail “surveys,” “charter member” certificates, etc ad nauseum. I got their attention after multiple letters and phone calls did not. F ‘em!!!!!

RNC to Conservatives: Go away! We want to be accepted by our good friends across the aisle. We like going to all the cocktail parties. We really don’t mind being made fun of and yelled at. It’s just their way of showing that they really care about us.

Conservatives to RNC: You have your fun; we’ll have ours.

Agreed--and the quicker, the better.

Every single piece of mail I get from them (and there is a lot of it), goes straight back to GOP Big Tent RINO Central.

Not one more cent for these clueless twits.

John Adams said: Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

Sam Adams said: public officials should not be chosen if they are lacking in experience, training, proven virtue, and demonstrated wisdom.

Ben Franklin said: High salaries for government offices are the best way to attract scoundrels and drive from the halls of public office those men who possess true merit and virtue.

“There is scarce a king in a hundred who would not, if he could, follow the example of Pharaoh — get first all the people’s money, then their lands, and then make them and their children servants forever. It will be said that we do not propose to establish kings. I know it. But there is a natural inclination in mankind to kingly government. It sometimes relieves them from aristocratic domination. They had rather have one tyrant than 500. It gives more the appearance of equality among citizens, and that they like. I am apprehensive — therefore — perhaps too apprehensive — that the government of these States may in future times end in a monarchy [not called a monarchy but an executive with monarchial powers]. But this catastrophe, I think, may long be delayed, if in our proposed system we do not sow the seeds of contention, faction and tumult, by making our posts of honor places of profit. If we do, I fear that, though we employ at first a number and not a single person, the number will in time be set aside, it will only nourish the fetus of a king (as the honorable gentleman from Virginia very aptly expressed it), and a king will the sooner be set over us.” ~~ Ben Franklin

BUY YOUR COPY OF SKOUSEN’S THE FIVE THOUSAND YEAR LEAP, PICK UP A HIGHLIGHTER AND READ IT.

I cannot emphasize this enough. EVERYTHING “we” need is written there. Politically anyway.

I believe it’s a way to WAKE UP the sleeping sheeple. We can try.

Sorry, I had to excerpt CNN, and there wasn't really much to excerpt.

Well, at least they didn’t hire Giussolini’s mentally challenged campaign manager, Michael DuHaime.
