  •  Not to mention how they spend what they do have. (7+ / 0-)

    That they have chosen to spend upwards of $200,000 on Palin's clothes, hair and makeup in 2 months rather than more field offices is an odd priority.

      the RNC did. And that probably made Republicans in general less happy, because they would have expected that money to go to downticket races as well as McCain, and that $150k+ could have helped a lot of those downticket races.

      I'll bet that alone lost some support of the GOP in Congress - some of that money would have been spent on THEIR campaigns.
