Red State has another sign of how far the Democrats have fallen in Roll Call‘s “Heard On The Hill”:
Sick and tired of losing, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee seems to have adopted a new and very basic recruiting tactic for the 2006 elections: Simply call the Republican Member you are hoping to beat and ask him who the best candidate would be to run against him.
Think weâ€™re joking?
Just ask Glenn Rushing, the DCCCâ€™s national field director, who last week left an ill-advised message for Mike Brady, the chief of staff to National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Tom Reynolds (N.Y.).
â€œCongressman [Rahm] Emanuel asked me to give your boss a call to see if he knew of any potential candidates in New York 26,â€ says Rushing, according to a tape of the voicemail obtained by HOH.
Sick and tired of losing? One would think they’d be acclimated to it by now…
