The Shits Just Keep A'Coming



When you're devoid of ideas (it helps also to be devoid of morals - WWJD) aimed at helping anyone but your wealthy string-pullers, you cheat, lie, and steal to raise money and get votes.

If you support Democratic Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick’s bid for reelection, stay away from annkirkpatrick.com. The site might greet visitors with a welcoming photo of the Arizona congresswoman and a screaming “Kirkpatrick for Congress” logo, but that design belies its true agenda. 
Funded and created by the Republican Party’s congressional campaign wing, the site’s true aim is in the fine print: to defeat Kirkpatrick, described as “a huge embarrassment to Arizona.” 
The National Republican Congressional Committee bought up hundreds of URLs ahead of the 2014 election cycle and has created nearly 20 websites appearing to support Democratic candidates in all but the small print, a spokesman for the campaign confirmed Thursday. 
The websites include donation forms that accept credit cards and encourage viewers to contribute up to $500, but instead of money going to the Democratic candidates, it goes to the NRCC... 
And it's not some peripheral outliers: it's the RNC! Once again one must ask: how much will it take for decent, thoughtful, non-hate-filled, open-minded conservatives to abandon today's Republican Party and/or demand much much better of them? Much more than this, evidently.

Much more than this, too.

What awful people.
