3. I'm Preferring To Think That This Is Becoming. . .

. . .the equivalent of compound interest. It isn't about big, or bigger, or smaller. It's about the exponential progression of dirt.

4. My fear is that Americans will be exposed to such an overload of dirt

that they will become desensitized.

6. Most Of Those Already Voted For It

Or didn't vote. There is a collection of the non-voters who will start to get fed up. Those who get further inured didn't vote the last time. Desensitization isn't going to motivate them to go vote.

7. 2014 is when the GOP took over the Senate

and they put things in place to ensure that everything that Obama did would be completely blocked.

9. Hang on, remember the RNC rejoiced in telling us they had "invested in technology" before the

Primary campaigns even started ? This is surely what they were talking about ? Were the Mercers working with the RNC to do this ?

The Behind The Scenes Story Of The RNC’s Quest For Data Supremacy

Republican National Committee Hires Senior Facebook Engineer As Chief Technology Officer

Ex-GOP Chief Tech Officer Has a Political Data Startup

By Kate Kaye. Published on July 24, 2015.


Mr. Barkett, a senior engineer at Facebook before he joined the RNC in 2013, founded Digital Core Campaign in February and the company has operated in near-stealth since. Unlike what he describes as relatively slow-moving tech development operations at the RNC, he has patterned the new firm after the Facebook model of quick, small-scale application launches followed by a/b testing and rapid refinements.

"We really wanted to follow more of what I would call the Facebook paradigm," said Mr. Barkett. "Working with the RNC… I recognized that there wasn't enough core engineering talent." He believes there is a lack of engineering skills across Republican organizations, not just at the RNC.

As an example, Mr. Barkett said that when Republicans he was in contact with suggested targeting TV ads by matching the voter file with set-top box data, the requisite skills weren't there. "I would say, 'Who's going to do that? You don't know how to do it,'" Mr. Barkett said.

"The results of the 2014 elections speak for themselves. We are very proud of the huge strides we've made growing our data and field programs," said RNC Spokeswoman Allison Moore. "Heading into the 2016 cycle we are continuing to build on that success."

I am wondering if this guy ever got involved with or interacted with CA at some point. Could have been some funky stuff going on.
