Via Wonkette, Taegan Goddard’s Political Wire has a scoop — “RNC to Investigate What Went Wrong“:
The RNC “is rolling out a plan to review what worked and what didn’t for the party in the 2012 cycle,” Politico reports.
“The plan is to focus on: campaign mechanics, fundraising, demographics, messaging, outside groups, campaign finance, the national primary process and, last but not least, what the successful Democratic efforts revealed about the way forward, and recommend plans for the way forward.”
However, BuzzFeed reports that two of the people leading the effort — former Bush spokesman Ari Fleischer and Republican committeeman Henry Barbour — pushed the narrative that the polls were skewed, and Mitt Romney would ultimately prevail.
Yeah, part of those ‘successful Democratic efforts‘ may have been not relying on people like Ari ‘Grima Wormtongue’ Fleischer and Henry ‘Boss Hogg’s Nephew‘ Barbour. But, hey, as a lifelong Democrat, I can only say: Y’all keep up the good work, boys!
Via Paul Constant, news that Public Policy Polling is just screwing with us now:
A new poll by Democratic firm Public Policy Polling found that 44 percent of people in the United States believe that Santa Claus is a Democrat, versus just 28 who say St. Nick would cast his ballot for the GOP. An identical 28 percent say they’re not sure of Santa’s political affiliation.
What other shenannigans are on the agenda for this Monday rump in the political holiday doldrums?
