Apparently Grandma’s mainstream media handlers aren’t doing a sufficient job, so she’s bringing in some freak conspiracy theorist from the clownshow known as Media Matters. This should go over well.
Hillary Rodham Clinton’s press shop, the focal point of her campaign over the summer as she tried to grapple with questions about her use of private email while at the State Department, is adding staff members and reshuffling existing personnel as it prepares for the final months of the nominating contest and the general election.
Such changes in a communications staff during a presidential race aren’t uncommon. But they speak to an urgent need: Mrs. Clinton’s communications team is arguably the most overworked unit on the campaign.
Zac Petkanas, a former communications director for Harry Reid and the liberal watchdog Media Matters, will join the campaign as the new director of rapid response, a campaign aide confirmed. The person currently doing that job, Christina Reynolds, a veteran of opposition research, will be promoted and given the title of deputy communications director, the aide said. She will become the second person with that title; the other is Kristina Schake.
Only in Democrat circles can someone who’s been failing at their job actually get a promotion. Meanwhile, this freak Petkanas also used to work for failed Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis. May he do for Clinton what he did for her.
