  •  No doubt this is patronage, that's certainly true (3+ / 0-)

    And since we're talking about the campaign organization rather than a branch of government, patronage is not at all contestable.

    Still, you'd think that whoever these people are they'd exercise even a bit of common sense. Campaign workers need to be trained and reasonably well-informed in order to be effective and given that there was almost certainly plenty of minority involvement in the campaign it shouldn't be that tough for SOMEONE to have thought to ask a question.

    •  I generally expect that most (0+ / 0-)

      professional people exercise common sense and minimal adherence to basic standards of their jobs/tasks.  You'd be surprised how often those expectations aren't met.  Even among well-intentioned and very interesting people that I like.
