RNC, the phone is ringing. Are you going to pick it up?

The voters are angry. The voters want tough enforcement of immigration law and they do not want amnesty. This is a 95%/5% issue. Both the Democrats and the Republicans have been pandering to the illegals instead of listening to the electorate. As a result, there has been a sharp drop in small donations to the RNC. Mom and Pop voter aren't sending in their money like good little sheep. As a result of the sharp drop in donations the RNC has had to let all of their fund raising telemarketers go.

"Last year, my solicitations totaled $164,000, and this year the way they were running for the first four months, they would total $100,000 by the end of 2007," said one fired phone bank solicitor who asked not to be identified.
There has been a sharp decline in contributions from RNC phone solicitations, another fired staffer said, reporting that many former donors flatly refuse to give more money to the national party if Mr. Bush and the Senate Republicans insist on supporting what these angry contributors call "amnesty" for illegal aliens.
"Every donor in 50 states we reached has been angry, especially in the last month and a half, and for 99 percent of them immigration is the No. 1 issue," said the former employee.
The RNC spokeswoman denied that the committee has seen any drop-off in contributions.
"Any assertion that overall donations have gone down is patently false," Miss Schmitt said. "We continue to out raise our Democrat counterpart by a substantive amount (nearly double)."

The voters are angry, you would not LIKE the voters when they are angry.

UPDATE:
Mary Katherine Ham posts the transcript of one such RNC fundraising call at Townhall:

Ring, Ring

Emily: "Hello?'

Caller: "Hi, ma'am, this is the Republican National Committee calling."

Emily (aside to me, with a big grin on her face): "It's the RNC."

Caller: "We're just calling to see at what level you'd be comfortable renewing your contribution. Would $75 be all right?"

Emily: "How about nothing?"

Caller: "Oh, why's that?"

Emily: "I'm not real happy with the immigration bill."

Caller: "Well, that's not Republicans. Just the President loves that immigration bill."

Emily: "The President is head of the Republican Party."

Caller: "Not for long."

Emily: "And, Republican senators are supporting the bill. Why would I give you guys money to get them re-elected?"

Caller: "That's ridiculous."

Emily: "Yeah, I don't think I'm gonna give you any money. You just called me ridiculous."

Blame who? the voters? Hell no, I'm angry too.

The RNC? Hell yes! They have been steadily moving to the left hence the reason the voters are angry.

The Administration? Hell yes! See RNC above.

Congress? Hell yes!

I'm thinking about becoming a conservative Democrat.

It might be more fun to wreak havoc in the opposition party than to try to fix our own.
