At her best, Marisa DeFranco was a distinction, not a difference. Running a campaign with a budget miniscule budget, and no reliable political advice is difficult in the best of times. Running a vanity campaign often leads to self-destructive actions that cause collateral damage to the party, its goals, and the prospective nominee.
Remeber Ed O’Reilly giving credence to Swift Boat propaganda? Meet Marisa DeFranco, enabler of the Brown/Herald -generated campaign against Elizabeth Warren’s heritage. The Springfield Republican interviewed DeFranco. Aside from the paper’s keeping the non-issue alive, there’s not much to the article. There’s not much to DeFranco either who says what “differentiates her from Warren, a Harvard Law School professor, is her “real world experience” as an immigration lawyer.” Wow.
“The problem for me is the campaign’s lack of ability to have a clear and consistent message about this issue,” DeFranco told MassLive.com. “They didn’t get in front of it when it first broke. They had several different responses.”
DeFranco’s confederate was on BMG not long ago calling for a debate. I said nothing, but many agreed that she had earned it. This interview shows that she’s not ready for prime-time. In fact, she’s not ready for anything but the Green Party, the only party that will ever accept her.
