It seems that GOP Conference chairman, Mike Pence, is taking a cue from the smart folks at Red State (link fixed):
Typically, the conference e-mails various journos and TV types a “What’s Hot on the Hill” guide to point out who should be booked on which shows and who is knowledgeable on various subjects. In short: a rapid response team. A great concept.
And it never had a name — till now.
“Tiger Teams” is what Pence is calling the aforementioned groups of members who can be used on certain issues. Like yesterday, on SCHIP, for example — they can send out all knowledgeable health care members. But naming it “Tiger Team”? What is this, summer camp? There was even a video in the conference meeting Wednesday to announce its official launch.
I’m suffering from wingnut stupidity overload right now, so I can’t fully process this.
I will point out, though, that if you scroll down the post about “Tiger Teams”, you will learn that Ricky Schroeder is a Republican. But what do expect from a Silver Spoon?
A tiger team is a specialized group tasked with testing the effectiveness of an organization’s ability to protect assets by attempting to circumvent, defeat, or otherwise thwart that organization’s internal and external security.
