The fact is people buy stuff because they think they need it.

Reince Priebus is running around saying it was the GOP data operations that got the Trump vote out on Tuesday.
He was on the radio claiming that his team “knew what people ate for lunch, when they went to work and how they voted in the past” so they could target these voters and get them to the polls. He made it sound like they had studied all of us since birth so they could maximize their vote.

This is nonsense. Trump had none of this stuff in the primary and he poleaxed everyone in his way. His “ground game” was to go on TV and radio and be interesting. Then he went on Twitter to give reporters something to ask him. In the general, he preferred the old fashioned whistle stop tour. Instead of a train, he flew around on his plane and did stadium shows near airports. His campaign was lean and mean, avoiding the trap of hiring an army of experts. Trump was outspent something close to 5-to-1 when including outside groups. Data Driven Nonsense | The Z Blog

Your Say

That guy was on Face the Nation last Sun right after Kaine and I was not impressed. First time I had ever seen him or heard him speak. He has some sort of speech impediment, a lisp or something, very noticeable. He seems to be doing a very convincing fag impression.

He's an attorney and a politician.
Probably one of the worst combinations possible.

Reince Priebus is a total ass hat. One useless punch bowl floater indeed.

The GOPe didn't spend a cent for Trump on ads nationally; only the down ballot candidates received money and time. Trump owes them nothing. That corrupt batch of grifters need another good yank on their chain. This election gave them one.

Trump's going outside the normal channels for staffing and Cabinet positions will shred the A list bungholes weekend party plans for quite a bit of time.

If Trump is for real the NSA is going to have a very busy first quarter.
