RNC Shares Holiday Wishes With Young Republicans… But What About Brooklyn GOP “Leadership”?
Have a holly, jolly Christmas, Brooklyn Young Republicans!
That, in effect, was what GOP Chairman Michael Steele said to the local GOP power base of youths by sending a personalized card this year.
But oddly enough, the Brooklyn GOP “leadership” neglected to highlight receipt of a similar card, something local GOP Duke Craig Eaton would almost certainly do given his notorious ego. But he did not, which begs the question: did the RNC forget the Bay Ridge Cabal this year?
Has the nationwide party, known to be at odds with State GOP Chairman Ed Cox and perhaps even Mr. Eaton himself (who is closely allied with Mr. Cox), given up on the Bay Ridge GOP?
Granted, I’m probably blowing this out of proportion. But, as we all know, in politics, symbolic gestures mean a lot.
Did the Brooklyn GOP also receive a card? If so, did Chairman Eaton keep it for himself rather than broadcast it to the community of Republicans he represents (supposedly)?
It might be a small sign, but it was noticeable enough that two of my colleagues asked me about it when they heard about the Young Republican Holiday Card.
Chairman Eaton, let us know when you get a chance ;-)
