Broke, and deservedly so

A crucial GOP fundraising committee is nearly broke, according to its latest monthly filing with the Federal Election Committee last week. The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) reported $1.6 million in cash on hand and $4 million in debts as of Aug. 31. The group helps bankroll House campaigns for GOP candidates. Its counterpart, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, reported $22.1 million, more than 10 times its Republican counterpart.

It looks like conservatives are following up on their threat to stop giving money to Republicans following the president’s pro-immigration push earlier this year. Here’s hoping they all stay home on election day if Rudy McRompson is nominated and the Republican Party takes such a horrific, historic beating that the neocons and pragmatists will run like lemmings to the Democratic Party where they always belonged.
