Heck of a job, Joshie

Obviously, I don't actually care who will win the Republican nomination for President. Having said that, if I were a John McCain fan, I'd shudder in horror at this news.

Josh Robinson-State Field Director [for South Carolina]

A graduate of Texas A&M University, Josh comes from Houston, Texas after working on a number of Congressional, State House, and State Senate races. Additionally, Josh has spent time at RNC Headquarters in the Department of Grassroots Development.

If that name sounds familiar, it's because the last campaign Josh Robinson worked for was Martha Wong's. Along the way, he called the Texas ParentPAC a "fringe group", gave a bogus explanation for using clumsily-altered campaign signs, and of course oversaw the release of the worst campaign ad ever.We know how well all that went. Let me just say I hope Robinson goes from this campaign to that of the eventual Republican nominee, so he can do for him what he did for Martha and will do for McCain.

Now Chuckie, Martha Wong probably shouldn't be entirely blamed on Joshie. There's only so much a campaign consultant can do with some candidates. :D

I didn't realize the GOP had a Department of Grassroots Development, though. It kind of sounds like something that ought to be situated at Iowa State University or some such, eh? Fun.

Kev(vie) is right there's only so much you can do, but there's also so, so much you shouldn't do.

Wong could overcome some political shortcomings in the past by running hard, smart campaigns. Her last campaign was simply a disaster. Cheers to the McCain effort in South Carolina!
