#rsrh QotD, …Err, No, The DCCC Is NOT Recruiting Edition.

Don’t get me wrong: it’s early days yet.  But this line from a Politico article detailing the solidifying trainwreck which is the Democrats’ attempt to take back the House:

The DCCC is working 24/7 recruiting excellent candidates and helping them and our members build top-notch campaigns.

…has pretty much no backup evidence for it.  At all.  The so-called “Drive to 25” initiative that the Democrats were supposed to be pushing heavily has sort of… dissipated.  Not to be mean-spirited about this, but if the DCCC has any people running for all those open/Republican held seats, then the committee has done an excellent job at hiding its light under a bushel.  An examination of the site reveals, well, no recruits at all.

Again, it’s early days yet.  And obviously the NRCC shouldn’t get complaisant.  Still, this was a fairly uncritical acceptance of Democratic agitprop on Politico’s part: tsk, tsk.

    How is that different than Politico’s normal MO?

    What Rob said – while Politico might be a millimeter to the right of the NY Times, I think at this point they’re somewhere to the left of the LA Times at least these days.

    They do serve a useful purpose though, they identify who the Journolistas are afraid of, and which Republicans they’d prefer to win.

    Moe, you are the English major here, so elucidate me as to your usage of the word “complaisant”, please. Was that a deliberate dig at the party establishment, or did you mean to use “complacent” (which, according to my dictionary can mean “complaisant”, but the reverse is not true)? Or are the two words, in fact, synonymous, and me just completely mistaken?

  • Moe_Lane says:

    qixqatl: Yes. 😉

    lol, If you’re gonna be shameless, you should include the pay-pal button while you’re at it 😉
