Readers will note that this ad was produced by the Republican National Committee, and was released Monday on YouTube where, as of 3 p.m. Wednesday, it had been viewed 307 times. I didn’t see the video until it was Tweeted by my friend Opus 6, a self-described “soccer mom” in Orange County, Calif., who has 3,716 Twitter followers and posted the video on her blog, American Perspective.
You might suppose that I would have been alerted to this new RNC video by the RNC itself. But while I get e-mails from Democrats like Debbie Wasserman-Schultz — and from every random dude with an Internet connection who is trying to promote anything to do with conservative/Republican politics — I never get anything from the RNC.
Nothing. Zero. Zilch. Nada.
This isn't that big of a blog-- yet-- but I'm on enough lists were people know I'm a blogger and am sent enough "Notice Me" emails from them where blogging is easy some days. But after going through my old emails, there was nothing from the RNC asking to watch this video. The weekly form letter asking for money, sure. A messaging asking all their readers to send out that video? Nothing.
So much for the Army of David's approach.
