Why I Don’t Give Money To The RNC

Well the story is already a day old, but when the third paragraph in a story on the front page of The Washington Post goes like this:

…the RNC’s latest filings captured widespread attention for one expenditure at a risque nightclub: $1,946.25 for “meals” at Voyeur in West Hollywood, which features topless dancers wearing horse bridles and other bondage gear while mimicking sex acts.

…it is probably not going to be a good story for your side.

I’ve been involved in many campaigns and party functions and can honestly say that nearly all of them have spent their money in a proper manner where I never felt like I was throwing my money away. There have been a couple times where I regretted giving money to a candidate when I found they were spending on things that they shouldn’t have been, but those people did not last very long in politics and people catch on pretty quick when someone is spending money in an inappropriate way. But it is also a reason I try to limit all my contributions, as limited as they are, to strictly local candidates that I know personally where I can at least see how money is being spent and determine rather easily whether they deserve more of my money or not. It is also why I rarely give money to national party organizations and/or other groups where I know this type of stuff goes on more than what was even reported here….

    Greetings from a very soggy Boston.

    I thought the first poster was suppose to day one???

  3. Hellbelly says:

    ….I’d love to see the press cover the real outrages of Dem supporters with the same gusto they are covering this story with; a story which in essence is a minor (though juicy) faux pas.

    But…..I guess that hope is in the same category of hoping the Easter Bunny comes around this weekend.

  4. Hellbelly says:

    …in regards to the media comes this happy little story from today’s NY Times:

    “CNN continued what has become a precipitous decline in ratings for its prime-time programs in the first quarter of 2010, with its main hosts losing almost half their viewers in a year.

    The trend in news ratings for the first three months of this year is all up for one network, the Fox News Channel, which enjoyed its best quarter ever in ratings, and down for both MSNBC and CNN.

    ….CNN executives have steadfastly said that they will not change their approach to prime-time programs, which are led by hosts not aligned with any partisan point of view.”

    ****not aligned with any partisan point of view!!!!!!!!!!!!


  5. Hellbelly says:

    …my favorite recent story is the decision by ABC to name Christiane Amanpour as the new anchor of This Week.

    I guess neither the Reverend Wright nor the ghost of Saul Alinsky was available to keep that program fair and balanced.

  6. Hellbelly says:

    ….and now I will get down off of my soap-box.

  7. Phil says:

    I watched a little of CNN last night for the first time in a long, long while. It made me ill. The moderator had Charle Cook and a guy I recognized from NRO. Balanced right? Hell no. It was two against one. The questions were as biased and slanted as can be and I’m used to the lefty biases. It was over the top. It was like two cops with a guy in the interagation room giving some guy the third degree.

    Pathetic. Let CNN continue to rot.

  8. Phil says:

    Amanpour – Jew hater and terrorist shill.

  9. Hellbelly says:

    I just can’t figure out (as a business person) why the people who run network news or CNN just don’t get it….you have one conservative network (FOX) just stomping everyone else in ratings (its not even a fair fight anymore), while their own news divisions continue to rot on the vine….and, like baseball owners who hire retread managers who have failed elsewhere, they respond to their own accelerating death spirals with more of the same liberal talking heads.

    I understand their biases….but when an obvious business decision is staring you in the face (TRY GOING TO THE RIGHT IN YOUR COVERAGE OR AT LEAST CUT DOWN ON THE LIBERAL BIAS) they’d rather keep stearing their ships straight into icebergs.

  10. Bill says:

    The RNC really doe snot know who spent the money. It could of been that some account numbers were goten by some body at the DNC who used this as an attmept to get some jollies and hopefully discredit our side.

  11. Phil says:

    Simple. Their ideology trumps their bottom line. They are dedicates lefties.

  12. Phil says:

    Your best bet giving money in this cycle is to send it over the internet directly to the candidate. None of my money goes to the RNC snd the congressional campaign committees. Two reasons – I want my money targeted to candidates who share my values. Second, stories like we heard yesterday.

  13. Brooks says:

    It is all very simple. The Network News Divsions are paid for by Conservatives and White Men.

    We watch their big Money Making Football and other sports which garners profits that are handed to Brian Williams and Katie Couric, whose progemas do not make a dime

  14. Brooks says:

    At least the RNC guys did not go to a Gay strip club with Ricky Martin.

  15. Brooks says:

    Look media bias goes all the way back to Cronkite. they do not have the power anymore. No One is watching it except for City Liberals.

    They are dying a little more every day, they tried to assasinate McDonnell with bogus College thesis smears, they tried to get Christie on his US Atorney Decisions, and they went after Scott brown on 20 year old play girl pics.

    What was the result? They obviously all won

  16. Brooks says:

    For months the World Marxist media was saying PM Silvio B of Italy was dead meat and would be pushed out, Phil.

    Yesterday the Italian conservatives wiped out the Marxists in rEgional Elections and won regions of the North of Italy for the first time in 80 years

  17. Wes says:

    The Autocrats and the media fail to realize just how out of touch they are, Brooks. Come November, they will be hugely surprised–and they definitely won’t like the surprise.

  18. Howard Dean says:

    Did you hear Couric called Beck a terrorist and traitor?

  19. Brooks says:

    Brian Rooney, son of Andy of 60 Minutes, was fired by ABC news Yesterday. He was a 23 Year Veteran, who was downsized by the ratings starved ABC

  20. Brooks says:

    Howard, couric’s sister was a Radical feminsit State Seantor form Virginaia who died of Cancer. The Couric Family is Marxist

  21. Phil says:

    The MSM propaganda machine cranks up each morning with the morning news shows with a shoutout to Matt Laur and the Today Show. Pure propaganda that influences the non political and garners millions od Democratic votes among the clueless nonpolitical out there.

    This is where the MSM really does its damage.

  22. Brooks says:

    the only way to crush the Marxist Media is to avoid their programming.

    They laugh at us for watching their Sports which pays for their bias News and left Wing Drama’s.

    the only show I watch from ABC, NBC, and CBS is the Office which is not political

  23. Brooks says:

    Phil, I agree on that. Today has influence, but the others on ABC and CBS have no viewers

  24. Brooks says:

    Phil, I always hoped that FOX would do a Network Morning show along with a Nightley News on Free TV.

    But Ailes does not want to take away form his Cable Programming

  25. Wes says:

    I can’t even which The Office, It’s as not funny as it is not political.

  26. Brooks says:

    Wes, Deathcare is at 25% in FLA. We need to exploit the Seniors and take seats of Boyd, Wexler, Klein, Grayson, and Kosmas

  27. Wes says:

    I don’t think that will be much of a problem, Broks. Seniors lean GOP slightly anyway: At the depths of the GOP’s rout at the Autocrats’ hands, seniors voted narrowly Republican. I expect those numbers to rise sharply this year.

  28. Phil says:

    Boyd has now made it to my “seats in play” list. The others, except for Weiner, were already there.

  29. Phil says:

    Not Weiner, I meant Wexler. He’s from a Marxist district.

  30. MD says:

    #5 – They actually tried to channel the spirit of Joseph Stalin first but the technology is not quite there as of yet.

  31. Gary Maxwell says:

    I will believe Wexler when I see. Jewish voters except for the Orthodox ( a distinct minority of Jews in the US ) are as strong a democrat party constituent as blacks, almost. That area of West Palm Beach county is retired fairly wealthy non-orthodox Jews. It will vote for any turd with a D after his name. If Zero dissing Bibi in the WH has no effect, not even cutting Medicare will work either. Hopeless cases I think. Most have never voted for anyone other than a Democrat their entire lives.

  32. Gary Maxwell says:

    We knew Wexler resigned, we are talking about his district in Palm Beach County.

  33. ameister says:

    besides being Jewish a large majority of
    voters in Wexlers’ district are from NY,NJ
    and other blue states.

  34. MD says:


    In 5 years FNC will be drawing more people for their special report than the evening news does today.

  35. D QUIXOTE says:

    😳 😳

  36. LaZebra says:

    Two new threads!

  37. JENNA HAZE says:

    I LOVE THE RNC !!!!

  38. Tim says:

    I don’t give money to the DNC either, Dave. Same reason.

    This nonsense happens in both parties.

    This bozo just got caught….

  39. bonncaruso says:

    Strip club. Lesbian acts. Love it, just love it. Party of family values. Love it. This is what happens when the GOP acts like it has the market on morality cornered. And Steele? He is spending RNC money like it is candy. If someone doesn’t stop him, the RNC will be broke by November. What the hell is the guy thinking?

  40. benj says:

    Michael Steele is ONE huge disappointment. The best thing for the RNC is to dump this guy. I will not give them a dime until he goes.
