Yes, it is a problem
The Republicans are already picking up on this:
http://tertiumquids.blogspot.c...

I think the best thing for us to do now, while we wait for the Coordinated campaign to get off its ass, is to recruit volunteers for the important House of Delegates races.  I've put together a guide to the most competitive races in Northern VA:


Yeah, well...
The "pick up" from tertium quids that you quote is right from Dan's posting, so it's "round and round and round we go", with the "argument" picking up steam ("value") but no new substance. A bit like what the banks did with the sub-par mortgages :)

In the meantime, Deeds has -- finally, finally!!! -- come up with some gear (bumper stickers, T-shirts, yard signs, buttons). Just got a notice today. The trouble is... They're even worse than Obama had been :) Everything is bloody expensive ($2 for a bumper sticker???) and, unlike with Obama campaign, you don't get a discount for bulk buying.

With Obama campaign, I could buy 100 buttons (at, I think, 50cents apiece), donate them to our local "cell" and we could ask for $1 donations. If we got them, it was a fundraiser for us (we could take an ad on the local radio or in the local paper); if someone took a button and didn't leave a donation -- little loss. With $2 per button, no discount for bulk... I'll get maybe 10 and we'll have to raffle them off :)
