Fun Reading at the NRSC
Back in December, the National Republican Senatorial Committee–in support of Sen. Chafee–decided to try to undermine Steve Laffey’s conservativism by claiming he was really a tax-and-spender. Well, by reading the comments (select “View all comments” at the aforementioned page), you’ll find that a few people have tried to set them straight. Interestingly, the thread is still growing given the recent Alito vote–possibly because the NSRC has decided to put Sen. Chafee “In the Spotlight” this week. Oops–good timing guys. If nothing else, reading the comments calling for the NRSC to “wake up” can be a cathartic experience.
Meanwhile, the NRSC is making much of the fact that Michigan Democrat Senator Debbie Stabenow is supported by the radical, left-wing Emily’s List and are claiming that she voted for the attempted filibuster of Alito because she is beholden to this pro-abortion organization. Apparently, NARAL isn’t considered as left-wing by the NSRC. Maybe because they’re the second-highest single contributor to Sen. Chafee’s re-election campaign? (Here’s another way to look at this data–look for yellow).
