Oh, Hans... you're the little 'tard who could!

You gotta love the Republicans for their ability to stand up and keep flinging shit even when it's clear their own party is falling apart faster than Mayor 9/11's campaign. Via Capital Annex comes word that Hans Klinger (the R spokesperson) is putting out emails trashing Lt. Col. Noriega. Because that's what Republican's do... they shit all over vets.

Per Hans Klinger

Times are tough at “Camp Noriega,” as Noriega learns that being the Burnt Orange Report’s ‘chosen one’ ain’t all it’s cracked up to be. The passion and fervor of the netroots community hasn’t translated into fundraising success (according to his press release, Noriega’s fourth quarter 2007 contributions were a shocking 40% lower than the third quarter 2007), and the stress has lead to staff turnover and other miscues.

Staff turnover? Not really. The fundraising hit is bs, as Vince points out, but not just because of the Pres race. What Hans Klinger fails to mention, because he's either trying to hide it or is just being a douche, is that the fundraising totals were down a little because the campaign wasn't able to raise as much in Q4 as they did in Q3 when self-funded candidate Watts was in the race. See, the FEC gives candidates some slack when they are running against well-off candidates by increasing the amount of money they can take in from individual donors.

But I guess no one told Hans Klinger that. One has to wonder if anyone told him that the moribund party he was hired to work for is rapidly circling the drain.
