The fighting Washington-from-within strategy is standard, but what’s up with all the techy stuff?
The August House Republican Conference planning kit, titled “Fighting Washington for All Americans,” offers a rare glimpse into the constituent outreach efforts of the GOP. Those efforts, it turns out, are highly calculated, hashtag-heavy and rife with references to the video app Vine.
The best way to stay in Washington appears to be to deride Washington, and Republican leadership isn’t going to deviate from that familiar formula.
This August’s town hall meetings could be interesting. There could be demonstrations by pro-immigration reform groups and Jah knows what from NO AMNESTY teahadists. I hope (sincerely) that no one gets hurt.
