    This is funny. Apparently this happens at the Clinton Global Initiative conference, too.

    My word! The Dems must be getting nervous. ;)

    In my own small locality last November, the Dems paid out of their own coffers for a flyer that praised a GOP opponent, emphasizing his Tea Party connections. Actually, they were over-emphasizing those connections. The GOP guy knew nothing about the flyer until it came out. About 10 days ago, the whole thing came to light and was given front-page status in the local newspaper, which is a liberal one. The managing editor (who came here from Seattle about five years ago) later wrote an op-ed about how even the smartest people sometimes do very dumb things.

    How did this affect the outcome of the election? The GOP guy won with 6,000 votes more than the Dem! That was a very good margin in a small area. So it totally backfired on the Dems. I suspect what they are doing at the retreat will also backfire on them in the long run.
