Karl Rove Is Afraid of You

by: David Dayen

Wed Mar 28, 2007 at 13:03:43 PM PDT

(All fixed! Help the two campaigns before the Saturday deadline. - promoted by Brian Leubitz)

You may have seen the hysterical House hearing today with the head of the General Services Administration over their using federal property and taxpayer dollars for partisan campaign activities.  If you haven't, here it is.

This is a scandal.  But one interesting aspect is that the Republican playbook has been cracked open; we can now plainly see what Republicans Karl Rove believes need defending in 2008.  And guess who pops up on the defense list?  John Doolittle.  And who's on the "2008 House Target" list? Jerry McNerney.

This isn't us at Calitics talking here, this is "the Architect."  The one who has the "real math."  And the one who's going to marshal vast resources against Jerry McNerney and Charlie Brown in 2008.  The funding deadline is Saturday.  You know what to do.

Jerry McNerney (CA-11) $
Charlie Brown (CA-04) $

How many Bush trips do you think we'll see against McNerney and Brown?

his approval in the 30s will that help?  I bet we will see the Reep nominee make a couple of appearances.

Put me down for 2 Bush visits this year. As for the GOP nominee, there is no place I would rather see him then in NorCal raising money for Republicans in red districts.

I wonder what sort of action would be helpful (besides money of course) for Jerry and Charlie at this point.  I certainly don't think anyone would want people showing up at their doors or calling them this early in the cycle, but there must be something that would be helpful.  Any ideas?

would be good, especially if you live in the district.

Cash still is important.  These guys need to project strength.

A big infusion of cash (0.00 / 0)
To McNerney would scare off potential opponents (that's what happened in the Robert Byrd race in 2006 once MoveOn jumped in).

Money for Brown would help him get the attention of the national party structure.  As they say, Early Money is Like Yeast.

I would also agree that continuing to write about it will help, both in LTEs and on the blogs.  Building buzz helps.
