I’m a Republican!
In this post, Kevin Drum talks about some of the problems the Democratic Party is having with its outdated database systems, concluding that
Like it or not, big, modern, centralized voter databases and marketing operations are the lifeblood of politics today.
But apparently there are some glitches in the Republican Party’s database too. In my mail today, I received this from RNC Chairman Marc Racicot:
Dear Fellow Republican
You are among a select group of Republicans who have been chosen to take part in the official Census of the Republican Party…
…your answers will represent the views and opinions of all Republican voters living in your voting district
…should the government be arable to continue discriminating against faith-based organizations?
…won’t you also enclose a contribution of $500, $250, $100, $50, or even $25 to the Republican National Committee.
Later, I’ll post a few of the questions. In the meantime, here’s one:
Do you think U.S. troops should have to serve under United Nations’ commanders?
Now the only question is whether I fill it out and send it in (without a check, of course). If I do send it in, should I fill it out with all extreme rightist answers, in an effort to push the GOP further away from the political center? Or should I confuse them and do my best to supply the answer Noam Chomsky would give?
