"Resurgent Republic is an answer to Democracy Corps on the left, which has been up for ten years without a conservative counterbalance," [Ed] Gillespie explains. "Center for American Progress has been up and running for almost that long. The American Action Network and the American Action Forum are designed to mimic that on the right. The AFL-CIO, the SEIU, and the Sierra Club and other left-leaning groups, well, American Crossroads is going to help offset that." ...
According to my English-to-wingnut phrase book, "Help offset that" means "fail, big time":
The group, American Crossroads, raised only $200 last month, according to a report it filed Monday with the Internal Revenue Service[.]
Is Gillespie running a 527 or a lemonade stand?
