Democrats report record fundraising month

Well so much for the "donor fatigue" the media was obsessing about last week. Today the DSCC reports "raising $15.5 million in September, its largest one-month haul ever." It brings their total numbers to about $10 million. The Republicans raised only "$8.3 million in September, and has collected a total of $86.4 million in the two-year election cycle."

Of course the GOPers also have all those conservative stealth groups pouring hundreds of millions into television advertising. They've been flooding the local networks in my little city with hit jobs on the local Dems, for months now. In fact, some of them have been buying up big airtime for anti-Democratic ads since Operation: Death Panel, during the health care reform war.

I saw weeks worth of negative ads on hcr. I can barely remember seeing a couple of pro ads. This is why the GOPers are more successful in their messaging to the low involvement demographic. They're spending more money all year long on directly implanting it in the public narrative.

I watch lots of hearings and public speaking on CSpan, so I feel like the message is getting out but the media just isn't interested. If it winks and says "Betcha" it's all over the t.v. though.

One of the things that irritates me the most is the same media that will bitch endlessly that Obama doesn't do enough pressers and only communicates through press releases and Gibbs, will breathlessly report every FB utterance from Sarah as if it's the word from on high. They never bitch that she won't do pressers. Nor have I heard a word of complaint that all these TP candidates are avoiding pressers as well. They just report that they're avoiding the press -- ha ha.
