I love those wackos

Dunn: there may be an enthusiasm gap but no one really wants Republican ideas - they’re just mad and disappointed
Amanpour: why are Republicans so secretive?
Gillespie: Obama hides the identity of people who gave him only $10 and unions are spending taxpayer money on elections!
Dunn: dear god that’s stupid
