At the risk of sounding rude, I found this report from Marc Ambinder rather amusing.

The Republican National Committee has hired many of its Victory 2008 directors. These are the folks who will be in charge of spending the many of millions of dollars that the party doles out for GOTV efforts. Many of them are young — very young — are veterans of the Giuliani presidential campaign, and before that, veterans of the 2006 RNC field operation run by Mike DuHaime, formerly the Giuliani campaign manager.

Yes, right, Giuliani. I remember him.

He’s the one who spent tens of millions of dollars to compete in eight Republicans presidential contests earlier this year, losing all of them by wide margins, and who quit the race without so much as a single delegate.

He’s the one who only managed to break double digits in only one primary, and who lost by 21 points in his most competitive contest.

It’s his team that has been hired by the RNC for its get-out-the-vote efforts.

Thank goodness.

UPDATE: (Nicole) It appears that the RNC is pretty happy with the number of "friends" it has on Facebook. Their thinking apparently is that it bodes well for the November election, as they for the first time have more than the DNC. I've heard rumors they're shopping that story to some friendly reporters. If you'd like to make them look ridiculous, you can join the Democratic Party's Facebook group here.

Can you help us out?
