Consultants

March 31, 2015 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

I suspect if you’ve ever been here before you know that there are two groups of people who own the shiver to my spine:  developers and political consultants.

We’re gonna talk about political consultants today.  I don’t like ‘um and always will.

It seems like every time I turn around some Republican political consultant is getting in trouble.  This month it’s a mess in Colorado where a political consultant literally broke every one of the Ten Commandments at once.

The political consultant appointed last year by the Colorado Republican Party to run its independent expenditure committee pleaded guilty last week to illegally coordinating contributions between a political action committee he ran and a campaign he managed in a 2012 congressional race in Virginia.

If this consultant put even half as much thought into curing insomnia as he did moving this money around to benefit himself, the whole damn country would get a good night’s sleep.  But no, we have to stay awake to fret about one Republican stealing from another Republican.  No, wait.  That’ a good thing, right?

So here you have the party of greed and un-virtuous morality being baffled that they cannot trust each other.

Bless their hearts.

Thanks to Alfredo over at the Dairy Queen for the heads up.

  1. This is why I maintain that all general elections should be public. That way, the primaries can be as dirty as each party wants it. If the Republicans want to cheat, borry, and steal their way to the nomination then God love em’. Once it gets to the general, it’s an equal playing field.

    damned political “consultants”.

    Politics should not be a war….. or blood sport… but apparently that’s what it is these days…..and people die.

    I hate to sound like a broken record, but all these stories about Republicans being surprised when grifters show up to take advantage of unregulated business opportunities are getting to the point of “no longer weird.”

    There’s an old joke: wisdom consists of only making a mistake once. Republicans seem to keep making the same mistakes over and over again – and are perpetually surprised when the same inevitable result happens. But then, at least they’re consistent.

  4. I agree that politics should not be a war or a blood sport. But since it is I sure wish the Dems were better at it.

  5. LynnN, I am stealing that, with attribution, as it expresses my sentiments perfectly. The only problem is that if we were better at it, it would be harder to tell us from them.

    Some consultants are not worth the spit to get the dust off a gnat…

  7. “Consultant” is one of those words that belongs in the one size fits all category. Gotta be careful of such things.

    But, please God, not a Republican political consultant.
    See LynnN’s comment. I’ll wager you weren’t good at the blood sport thingie.
