This Election, A Video Camera In Every College Republican’s Hands

November 12th, 2007 by mopns · No Comments

By David All (Kinder campaign consultant)

I’ve been thinking about this for a while but the idea is still a little half-baked. I need your input in the comments.

This election cycle, if you’re going to contribute to a cause other than your favorite Republican politician, why not support a cause to arm College Republicans with video cameras and editing equipment with a promise that they will help hold Democrats accountable for what they’re saying on the trail?

In other words, an army of S.R Sidarth’s, the most-famous modern volunteer of the 2006 election cycle who captured this damaging moment. The only difference: The army will be Republican. The target: vulnerable Democrats who say one thing in Washington and do another back home in their district.

Sounds good right?

The only problem is that no such cause exists (yet).

Technically, it’s easy to do. Correct me if I’m wrong, but the CR network is vast and they’re more than willing to step-up-to-the-plate for a good cause. With the infrastructure already in place, all they need is direction and the tools to get the job done right.

So this election, rather than arranging protests and painting signs, why not help provide video content to the masses of bloggers who will inevitably push a narrative to the mainstream media in their respective states? Read more…

We believe this is a great idea by Mr. All. We welcome any aspiring young political operative to send us their campaign videos. We pledge to keep the sender’s name anonymous.
