I'm actually not that worried about this bit of news

Apparently the GOP and in particular the NRCC are in rough shape as far as fundraising.  They're hurting for a good number of reasons, the GOP is in the minority in a big way, the Democrats are sitting on a pile of money right now that they raised in previous cycles, Congressional GOPers are afraid to let go any money out of fear of not having enough come election season.  The NRCC also opted to throw away $1 million defending Dede Scozzafava in NY-23 and pissed off a ton of donors and potential donors, which doesn't help matters. 

Good.  They deserve to fucking squirm for a while.  As for why I'm not worried, I don't think the money is going to be too much of an issue.  Oh, don't get me wrong, the NRCC, NRSC and RNC are probably going to be hurting, but I don't think local GOP operations and individual candidates are going to hurt too much once campaign season is underway, unless said candidate is a RINO squish, or is at least perceived as squishy, or if they're in a liberal state with a weak/retarded state GOP.  It'll be interesting to see where things go, if they can tap into popular anger at the Democrats or not.
