One of the assertions that the Left makes about the Right on a regular basis is that conservatives don’t have a sense of humor. The line is that the Right can’t laugh at anything, and the assumption is that liberals have a monopoly on comedy.
Of course, we know that this isn’t really the case. The latest example: the Republican National Committee has released a parody agenda of the Democratic National Committee’s upcoming Fall Meeting.
The two page (or image) press relase is pointedly funny and perceptively makes fun of the personalities and issues that drive the Democrats’ agenda.
Here are some of the highlights:
Where Is Michigan? A geographical presentation of what exists between New York and Los Angeles
Ok, but really…’What Happened’? A continuing conversation about who to blame for Hillary Clinton’s loss
Weinstein Shopping Spree How to spend the $300,000 in money we won’t return from Harvey Weinstein
Moral Victories Jon Ossoff (GA-06), Rob Quist (MT-AL), Archie Parnell (SC-5), Jim Thompson (KS-4) discuss why they actually won their special elections
Every item on the fake agenda is a hit, and it proves the ridiculous priorities and preoccupations of the Left. It’s nice to see the RNC having a good time with the DNC’s people and issues.
As if continued election losses weren’t already bad enough for Democrats.
According to data released by the Federal Election Commission, the Democratic National Committee reported a record low fundraising haul for the month of May. The DNC took in only $4.3 million from party donors. This is the worst May for Democrats since 2003 – when the DNC raised $2.7 million.
The news comes right after a dismal showing of donations for April. The DNC raised $4.7 million that month – their worst April showing since 2009.
Newly-elected DNC Chairman Tom Perez has had to explain away the embarrassing numbers to the media. He contends he’s only been on the job since March 1, and needs more time to turn things around. In an interview with NBC’s Hallie Jackson, Perez refused to accept responsibility.
As you can see from the clip, Perez has the ambitious goal of doubling the DNC budget from $50 million to $100 million. With fundraising numbers like these, however, this wouldn’t be just an uphill struggle – it’d be more like mission impossible.
On contrast, the Republican National Committee is reporting robust fundraising numbers. They took in $10.8 million for the month of May. This is an off-year record high for the RNC. Party Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel (unlike Perez) is more than happy to talk about her organization’s fundraising prowess.
“Thanks to the continued investment by Americans who truly believe conservative values will continue to change this country for the better, the RNC will be there to support, defend, and elect Republicans headed into 2018 and beyond,” she said in a statement.
I support having the top ten Republicans on the main debate stage. I think if you put all of them on the stage — the 16 to 2000 declared candidates — you learn nothing and accomplish nothing.
Fox News (one of my employers) and the RNC deciding to use a polling average and put the top ten in the main event is not a bad idea. It takes subjectivity from the network out and provides a set standard. I do not have a problem with it and when briefed on it a while back supported it. I still do.
But I think the polling standard can and is in danger of getting hijacked by crap polls.
The latest NBC/Wall Street Journal poll has Chris Christie, John Kasich, and Rick Perry essentially tied for tenth place, with Perry at the bottom. But the poll is of less than 300 people and has a margin of error of over 6%.
Perry is the longest serving Governor in the state with the most Republican delegates at stake, during his tenure Texas created over 1.5 million jobs, and is one of only two veterans of the military in the race.
Fox is going to do a more legitimate poll and others are coming out. But polls with margins of error over 6%, put into the polling averages, can throw a monkey wrench in things. Fox News set out to deliver the debate people wanted after the miserable debates of 2012. It sought to rectify the cattle call style low information debates of the last cycle.
An irony is that one of the most complained about debates in 2012 Republican Primary was the NBC debate and now an NBC poll could mess up Fox’s good intentions.
Jahan Wilcox is the rapid response director at the RNC. He’s charged with responding quickly to attack Democrats and rebut Democrat attacks on the GOP.
Last night, Jahan Wilcox responded quickly to Thom Tillis’s victory in North Carolina by declaring that next would be to defeat Matt Bevin, the Republican candidate in Kentucky, who Wilcox called a “fraud.”
Last night I gave $100.00 to Thom Tillis. I opposed him in the primary. I think he won’t be nearly as good in the Senate as several of his opponents. But he is the nominee and I rallied to his side last night.
But let’s not fool ourselves. Guys like Jahan Wilcox and much of the establishment would not pee on conservatives if they were on fire. They want us defeated and silenced, even though they demand our money and votes in the general. Were Matt Bevin to win Kentucky — and he keeps going up in the polls there — these guys would do everything possible to sabotage his general election bid, daring to hope the Democrats win.
Last night in North Carolina, the candidates not supported by the Establishment, Karl Rove’s Crossroads, and the Chamber of Commerce got more votes than Thom Tillis. In Texas, John Cornyn couldn’t get to 60% of the vote against a candidate none of the major tea party groups would even support. In Texas.
At some point, conservatives are going to stop writing checks and stop showing up. We do kind of know when we aren’t wanted. And Jahan Wilcox, who has also used his twitter feed to attack groups like the Club For Growth, pretty clearly does not want conservatives in the mix.
