Arizona Democrats are desperately trying to get their finance mechanism greased up with some cash infusions from “the folks.” The task becomes tougher as Obama’s schemes to further separate Americans from their money take hold.
Still, we were surprised to see a recent missive from Frank Camacho, the party’s Communications Director. After nearly 30 years in the KTVK-Channel 3 newsroom, the former anchor should be a bit more savvy — but, after all, he is a Democrat.
In the email pitch for cash Camacho claims that conservative Republicans are an embarrassment to the state of Arizona. His pathetic plea sits atop an editorial from the liberal Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic), which opines “some Arizona Republican leaders…still don’t understand messaging.”
“Help the Arizona Democratic Party fight back, make a contribution now!” Camacho’s plea fairly screams. He makes liberal use of the term “kook,” the word of the moment to denigrate Republicans. And where did that highly charged, hypercritical word get its legs?
Left-leaning Republican Precinct Committeeman Kathy Petsas (Dist. 28) was often quoted by columnist Laurie Roberts in the República. The duo tossed the terms “kook” and “kooky” around with wild abandon. Then came the doozy: “Dekookification.” That referred to a purging of conservatives, most notably from the state legislature and intra-party office holders.
Petsas must be proud her word is gaining traction. Now the Democrats are using her terminology to fundraise.
Nice going, Ms. Petsas. Since you’re aiding the Democrats with their fundraising strategy, perhaps you should give some thought to officially joining them. You could probably work your trophy status into a lofty job with Macho Camacho.
