Campaign "Damage Control"


I see "damage control" like the Clinton campaign's in relation to the RFK assassination comments, and all I can do is wonder how Clinton managed to pick such herd of belligerent, incompetent advisors and spokespersons. It serves to reinforce my impression that the leading reason, and perhaps the only reason, she is behind in the race is the fact that she ran a poor campaign.

  2. True, but there's a key difference between having various idiots "go rogue" independent of your campaign, and having people within your campaign (some of whom are being paid astronomical sums of money) do the same.

  3. Concur, but pragmatically I don't think it makes much of a difference. What is relevant pragmatically is how closely associated the public perceives you as being to the idiot, not how much you are paying them . . . or even how close you "really" are to them.
