According to WND, the RNC has fired all 65 of their telephone solicitors.
Why? Donor umbrage at Bush's amnesty plan!
"Every donor in 50 states we reached has been angry, especially in the last month and a half, and for 99 percent of them immigration is the No. 1 issue," a fired phone-bank employee told the Washington Times.
"Last year, my solicitations totaled $164,000, and this year the way they were running for the first four months, they would total $100,000 by the end of 2007," another fired phone-bank employee who asked not to be identified told the paper.
Of course, the RNC claims that their donations haven't dropped off at all, and that the employees were fired because the phone bank equipment is outdated and too expensive to replace.
I guess that happens when your base is too pissed off to give you one red cent.
We all heard the President's glaring disrespect for us when he said this:
"And my answer to the skeptics is: Give us a chance to fix the problems in a comprehensive way that enforces our border and treats people with decency and respect," the president said.
"Give us a chance to fix this problem. Don't try to kill this bill before it gets moving."
Um... Senor Presidente, we have been giving the government a chance! When does it end?!?
I would humbly suggest that the RNC call these folks up and see if they're willing to donate:
After all, they're getting almost exactly what they want.
