And yet, the pols can't seem to figure out why.
RNC fires phone solicitorsMy contributions (as have my wife's and friends' and family) have dropped to nothing.
Fired employees acknowledged that the committee's phone equipment was outdated, but said a sharp drop-off in donations "probably" hastened the end of the RNC's in-house phone-bank operation.
"Last year, my solicitations totaled $164,000, and this year the way they were running for the first four months, they would total $100,000 by the end of 2007," said one fired phone bank solicitor who asked not to be identified.
There has been a sharp decline in contributions from RNC phone solicitations, another fired staffer said, reporting that many former donors flatly refuse to give more money to the national party if Mr. Bush and the Senate Republicans insist on supporting what these angry contributors call "amnesty" for illegal aliens.
"Everyone donor in 50 states we reached has been angry, especially in the last month and a half, and for 99 percent of them immigration is the No. 1 issue," said the former employee.
The RNC spokeswoman denied that the committee has seen any drop-off in contributions.
"Any assertion that overall donations have gone down is patently false," Miss Schmitt said. "We continue to out raise our Democrat counterpart by a substantive amount (nearly double)."
But that's because we've been scared by "empty political rhetoric" and we "don't want to do what's right for America". Screw you, Bush.
Don't worry though, all is not lost. This will turn things around; conservatives all know that Global Panty-bunching is real!!

Like those Iranians and "insurgents" helping kill our soldiers.
I mean, heck, that was the R's trump card in the elections.
