33. re: Republicans have fallen into the trap of believing their own press releases.

Republicans would be well served to hire non-Republicans to read their press releases. "Somehow they got ‘em to vote” is a perfect example of a statement that probably should have been put another way. In the context that the speaker was , IIRC, talking about AA voters in Ohio, the statement sounds like the speaker is saying "Well, they are a bunch of ignorant, unmotivated layabouts, but somehow they got 'em to vote." Instead, they could have tried a statement like "We underestimated their level of organizing in the AA community" or "Because of the economy, we underestimated the AA turnout."

Why I'd expect this from a party that regularly and frequently refers to Latinos as "illegals" and suggests they should all be deported is another question.
