Turned to C-SPAN while eating lunch to watch the RNC Chairman debate.  It is rather interesting that this is even televised since only the 168 people on the Republican National Committee get a vote.  Some things I learned:

  • Watching C-SPAN is something akin to watching paint dry.
  • Mike Duncan has likely been a member of the GOP since its inception.
  • Ken Blackwell is a Facebook diva, he has almost three times the “friends” as I do.
  • Twitter” is now being used as a verb.  Three years ago I would have never thought I’d hear it being mentioned in a political debate.  By the way, Twitter is the noun, and I believe the proper verb form is “tweet.”  Yes, I am a geek.
  • The current RNC Chair, Mike Duncan, thinks he’s the future of the party?  Huh?  Wouldn’t he be the present?
  • The other RNC chair candidates think that Saul Anuzis is a Twitter diva.
  • Everybody’s favorite political website is their own.
  • Everybody has to invoke the name of Ronald Reagan.
  • Ron Paul people are getting way too much attention.
  • Ken Blackwell not only owns seven guns, he’s good at using them.
  • Chip Saltsman, Ken Blackwell, Michael Steele, and Saul Anuzis buy into two-way communication.
  • Increasing our Web 2.0/Internet capabilities means more than just having a Twitter account.
  • Mike Duncan is touting technological advances that he has made, why just last year they started using the fax machine.  He did help put out a nice calendar as well.
  • The Rebuild The Party plan is getting noticed.  Ken Blackwell mentioned it, and the only candidate who hasn’t endorsed it is Katon Dawson.

Seriously, I think all who watched can agree that Mike Duncan was the real loser.  Those most helped – Michael Steele, Ken Blackwell, and Saul Anuzis.  Chip Saltsman did well, but not sure he’s going to be able to overcome CD-gate.  Katon Dawson has too much controversy and really didn’t say anything new.  Mike Duncan – zzzzzzzzzz.

  5. Haha, you know you’re dealing with a Ron Paul supporter when a comment is written in all caps and they don’t end sentences in periods.

    I agree with you Larry, though I thought Chip Saltsman proved why he’s the best guy for the job. I hope we get video clips of the Tennessee rallies against the income tax.

  9. Knowing the proper usage of Twitter and tweet is the height of geekdom-congratulations.

    I must be an anti-geek (or as I call myself, a social mediot) because I could not just get into Twitter. I deactivated it. On-line, real time, blow by blow accounts of my life aren’t even interesting to me.

  13. @Eric – I aim to serve.

    @Lover of Liberty – STOP DRINKING KOOL AID. IT IS BAD FOR YOU.

    @Puma – I’m sure you’ll be able to find it somewhere. I can’t say it was all that interesting though.

    @Kevin – who is Larry?

    @Andy – thank you

  17. Not sure that I resonate with LOVER’s comment but I do think that the GOP can learn something from Ron Paul.. he has a very conservative message that many resonate with. On the flip-side the GOP needs to find someone with a similar (read that not the same) message that doesn’t come across angry when he is in front of a camera.

    I only watch C-SPAN during the conventions.. you get to see them unedited and without commentary.. also get to hear the prayers.
