How Repubs run a campaign

Or, the aquatic habits of sea-borne rodents. Seems that as the good ship "Repub Revolution" sinks slowly into the muck many of its former operatives seem to want to set the record straight.

So, here is Allen Raymond, the former GOP consultant of New Hampshire phone jamming fame (he served some time for it in fact), spilling the beans on the work he did for the Grand Ol' Party. That would be the party of Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt. It seems that Raymond is a little bitter after being thrown to the legal wolves by his former associates, and Josh Marshall over on TPM wants to tell us about it.

How bitter?

[Raymond] writes about heading to prison for his role in the jamming: "After ten full years inside the GOP, ninety days among honest criminals wasn't really any great ordeal."

So about those phone tricks. The jamming, Raymond says, was a unique stunt. Much more common were false information campaigns via robocalls, push polling, and then sneakier stunts like the one described in the passage below.

Just click on the link and read "the passage below." It's a doozey.

Though a bit insulting to Ukrainian Americans.

Wow. That's low.

That's even worse than the colliding galaxies!

Yeah. Makes you wonder what God had against those folks in the defunct galaxy if we can get away with this (and a whole lot worse).
