Does the GAGOP Think Stupid Websites Will Win this Election?

If they do, they’re making a terrible mistake.

On Monday, the GAGOP rolled out a website designed to “expose the truth” about Senator Jason Carter.

The site is filled with Republican red meat, exactly what will win over undecideds, and incredibly flimsy “attacks” on Carter.

What I want to know is: why not have this ready to go on, say, July 23? Why not have the site indexed so it shows up in Google searches? Do they really expect the site to have an impact?

    I was fully intending on voting for Carter, but this website really changed my mind.

    Said nobody, ever.

    All these little side-attack websites are getting silly. Collins and Zoller used them a couple years ago and they seem to have (unfortunately) taken off in a bad way.

    Less fringe websites, more direct voter engagement please, GAGOP.

    Why are you assuming that a strategy needs to be composed of a single thing. Personally I don’t visit these types of websites and that type of politics does not appeal to me, but there are people that do. Those people will share links with other people who do and there will be some non zero net change in the vote totals. The people like me and you who do no care will not care and the end result is positive.

    Do this with a 1,000 other ideas like yard signs, robocalls, mailers, personal calls, speeches, debates, radio appearances, lapel pins, letters to the editor, tv ads, newspaper ads, Facebook pages, twitter feeds, bumper stickers, and cranks posting to political blogs and then it amounts to something. Everyone always thinks every thing isn’t going to win an election and they are right, it is everything that will win the election.

    Gainesville Salvage and Disposal, Magnolia Capital LLC, North Georgia Aviation–these are the types of things that are archived out there on the web–showing up in Google searches. No puns needed. The sordid stories tell themselves pretty well.

      Don’t forget Chattahoochee Logistics LLC, and the $240,000+ of your taxpayer dollars that disappeared up its rabbit hole.

    A lotta comments made me LOL. Ed’s wingdings kicked it off promptly and greencrackers kittens made it a trend. Caulfield’s first line was great deadpan, but Vestals 7200 baud topped it.
