How Dumb Is the NRSC’s Brad Dayspring? This Dumb – Shoots At Mark Levin, Hits Self
I’ve seen establishment GOP hacks like the NRSC’s Brad Dayspring do some pretty dumb things, but this one takes the cake. No wonder the GOP can’t win much of anything with these idiots in charge. Bradley is director of communications for the NRSC. Why he hasn’t been fired already – as I’ve pointed out before – Dec 5, 2012: The NRSC’s Incompetent “Clown” Brad Dayspring Strikes Again - is a mystery. There’s also more on him going after Limbaugh here. Oh, and here’s where Cantor dumped him before he went to the NRSC. Talk about a bad penny who keeps turning up for some reason. Maybe mommy and daddy are big GOP donors, or something?
Now, today, the NRSC’s resident idiot pretending to be a communications director Dayspring claims the Senate Conservative Fund (SCF) spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to make Mark Levin’s book, a best seller. His claim is false. How on Earth can the NRSC allow this guy to be director of communications when he makes such outlandish, if not libelous claims, without doing his homework??
WHOA! Senate Conservatives Fund spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to make Mark Levin’s book a bestseller http://t.co/8VXaUrisJf

The moron then went on to issue some additional tweets:
Here is what he is referencing and linking:
Such expenditures include purchasing hundreds of thousands of dollars’ worth of conservative commentator’s Mark Levin books to hand out to donors as a freebie for their contributions. His group also paid $143,360 over three years to a luxury design firm to renovate office space in Washington townhouses, according to campaign-finance filings.
Had the foolish and irresponsible Dayspring bothered to check, he’d see that the SCF bought paperback copies of Liberty and Tyranny – published five years ago in 2009. Consequently, these bulk sales have NOTHING to do with any best seller’s list. That would be Mark’s current book: The Liberty Amendments.
See this from August in the Washington Free Beacon:
The Senate Conservatives Fund, founded by former senator and current president of the Heritage Foundation Jim Demint, is running similar ads to defund Obamacare. The campaign again features Cruz. Sen. Mike Lee (R.,Utah) also appears in an ad.
When calling a separate 1-800 number, an automated voice conducts a nationwide “poll,” which asks if Republicans should defund Obamacare. Respondents are asked to press one if Republicans should stop the law’s implementation, or two if “Republicans should allow it to be implemented.”
After the poll, a message from Cruz is played, ending with, “Can we count on you for a donation?”
With a $25 contribution callers can receive a copy of Mark Levin’s book Liberty and Tyranny.
If you decline, the voice operator then acknowledges that these are “tough economic times,” but asks for a $10 donation to communicate with 100 voters in key states about defunding the health care law.
Obviously, along with not knowing a lot of other things – like how to check his facts before running his dumb mouth on Twitter, Dayspring doesn’t realize how book sales works. Groups from Heritage, to Freedom Works to the SCF often buy books in bulk directly from the publishers. And the authors usually do not enjoy the type of compenssation they might on a current book. One can buy Liberty and Turanny on line right now for $5 at link above.
So, there you have it, Bradley Daysrping, Director of Communications for the NRSC making a scandalous but false charge against one of the Right’ leading radio talk show hosts. Just how dumb is this guy, Dayspring?
Furthermore, the right leaning groups that buy books for these purposes don’t only buy books by Mark Levin. They often buy books written by many right-leaning authors – Michelle Malkin, David Limbaugh, Laura Ingraham, etc… for example.
I honestly don’t understand this. What good purpose does it serve for an irresponsible little hack like Dayspring, who has already caused the GOP so much grief, to anger such prominent Right-side pundits and ultimately their fans by attacking their ability to write and publish books?
Maybe it’s time we see a little transparency from them and the establishment Republican Senators ultimately behind such a sleazy attack. What is it they are promising their donors in return for campaign donations? Maybe it’s time right side conservative bloggers began taking a closer look at those connections, as well.
