Your blogger has been preaching Twitter (and other technologies) in her attempt to drag our political party, often kicking and screaming, into the 2008 election cycle, even though it is now 2009. She has a few allies, including fellow bloggers over at ConservativeNC.
We were beaten, soundly, not because Obama was so popular, but because we were out organized at the grassroots level. Even former Congressman Tom DeLay (R-Texas) spoke on this very topic at the Winter Board Meeting of the North Carolina Republican Women. (More on this in another post.)
If you need more proof, check out the article.
Thankfully, new RNC chairman, Michael Steele realizes that the modern Republican party must return, literally, to its roots and has fired the entire staff. He supports running things from the bottom up, as our party used to do.
Whether conservatives like him or dislike him, he understands the importance of technology, in conjunction with grassroots organizations such as North Carolina's Civitas Instutute or the NC Chapter of Americans for Prosperity.
Steele is one of the most popular people on Twitter, as were all of the RNC chairman candidates. Your blogger is glad to see this happening at the national level and hopes that folks in the counties across our great state will continue to pick up on this trend.
