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.
- “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?
- 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.
- 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.
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.
