does anybody else think tired and sleepy mean two totally different things
sleepy is cute and dozing off and happy but tired is 10 cups of coffee and murder
reblogging because the last graphic comment is FLAWLESS
Anonymous said: What kind of advice do you give to a CM in name only (CMINO - or is that redundant)? I have no power of the purse, the strategist is running the show, the candidate is bossy, and even my admin/FD is shitting on me because she sees the other ones doing it. I understand not having authority (I know, that expectation would be "adorable", as one submission put it), but these limits are keeping me from being able to do my job! What can I do? What can of whoop-ass can I open?
This was me on the 2 campaigns I managed. They were both small, local campaigns where neither candidate wanted to do anything like a normal campaign and just wanted to do their own thing. They also listened to “insiders with connections” who in the long run don’t do anything. Had no money control, and in 1 case, wasn’t even given the poll results!
I cried a lot. I also started just running covert operations of sorts. If they don’t want to consult or work with you, don’t work with them. Run your own phone banks and canvasses, reach out to people on your own. Do what you KNOW is right and let them see how right you are.
