The RNC’s Clever Video Troll-Bait

CHARLOTTE – Bettina Inclan is one of the better-known spokesflacks in the RNC appartus. She worked her way there with a series of campaign jobs – for Republicans – and has spent 2011 trying to explain why Mitt Romney’s shifting immigration position is an asset of some kind.

So, a pretty odd choice to star in an RNC house video promoting a new micro-site in which “breaking up” with Barack Obama is totally what the kids are doing these days.

This was surely done to bait people into talking about a very simple concept, right? It’s still odd. Americans for Prosperity and the Romney campaign have had terrific luck finding angry, ordinary-talking people who’ll face cameras and talk about how they stopped believing in Barack Obama.
