A very wrong ENGAGEment

by Jeremy Hooper

Something we've never talked about before on this site: The annoyingly ironic fact that the media company who (quietly) designed's web campaign works under the moniker:

Engage [GOP communications firm]

Ya know, because it's always nice to have a communications company fully bear out the concept that you plan to forcibly invalidate for countless gay couples. What, ProtectMarriage -- was "Live In Peace Inc." unavailable or something? Ugh.

Among Engage's other clients: U.S. Congressman Bob Goodlatte (whose promotional images, strangely, exist in a few subdirectories). We just wish they could've stuck with the one "good latte" and not moved onto an overheated drink that more resembles a CrappyCupofPissWater.

Your thoughts

Yeah engage should proudly advertised that they did web design for them.
Anyways Engage actually does work for moderate to inclusive Republicans as well I do not think they have a litmus test on who they do work for.

I'm not so sure about that, Matt. Patrick Ruffini, one of the founders of Engage, is a GOP strategist/politico.

Moderated Republicans, yes. But I don't think they carry any Democratic clients.

Which is fine, of course. But it might have been a nice thing to know during the campaign -- that a GOP comm. firm was fueling the web component of this supposedly non-partisan matter.

Chino Blanco scratched the surface during the campaign, connecting Ruffini to an icontribute component on the site:

But as far as I can tell, the company connection was never made.
