    Hey Dast. I just popped backed onto the forum and a lot has changed for me... holy shit. I saw that we talked and I thought it'd be nice to talk again. How is life treating you?

    Generally speaking, a consultant is a campaign's Generalissimo. They advise the candidate on overall messaging and campaign strategy. They are also (generally) in charge of interviewing and hiring campaign staff. The campaign staff mainly exists to make the campaign and candidate conform to the consultant's vision.

    That is the ideal situation anyway. Some campaigns are less functional than others.

    To be clear though, there are many kinds of consultants out there. Some consultants specialize in web outreach. Others specialize in mail. Media consultants also exist. Polling firms nobody hears about are also run by consultants.

    Often multiple kinds of consultants have their hands in one campaign. The Generalissimo I told you about will hire out fliers, mail pieces, etc to professional contacts who specialize in that industry.

    I hear that the Dems have a nifty system of grassroots consulting as well that really isn't present in the GOP. It's one of the reasons why we repeatedly get our asses kicked in the ground game.

    As for the day to day? A consultant usually picks up multiple races, and after choosing their Campaign Managers and Campaign staff, they leave the details and a good deal of the creative work to people around the candidate (IDEALLY). So on a day to day basis they are either making sure things are going according to plan or making adjustments to that end.

    As for the other "special" consultants, they act like good little elves and produce the work other consultants pay them to do.

    That's my best crack at telling you what a consultant is and giving you a day to day picture of what they do.

    Becoming a consultant then requires a history of management (usually campaign management), time as an elf in a consulting firm, being a ballsy entrepreneur with a new political product, or some combination of the three. Oh and time, it usually takes a lot of time to build those connections. That said, I know consultants in their late twenties and early thirties who are doing fine professionally.

    It's really hard to become a campaign consultant though. To continue the Generalissimo metaphor, most people who get in the business will make it up to Captain or Colonel. That's a reality you have to be okay with going in. The Dems are, I am told, paid pretty well in these mid-level positions.

    Damn my ideals.

    No problem, I'm a pretty expressed introvert who has been a GOP politico (CM, FD, etc) by trade for about seven years or so. It isn't easy at first, but you can learn to like it. With the right know-how and drive, those behind-closed-door positions could be close at hand.

    Also, most of the best campaign staff and capital staff I know have been introverts who stretched themselves bit.

    I won't reveal my identity/campaigns I've worked and am working for, but if you would like some general guidance, feel free to give me a shout.

    Political jobs are actually pretty easy to acquire because there are so many lazy operatives out there. My advice is to volunteer on political campaigns for the major political party of your choice. Invest in the right one, and you won't be out of the job. I speak from experience.

    Jesus me about painful..

    You? An angel? Maybe on the outside

    I gotta ask lol. I know you don't watch porn but is it the same feeling in the butt as in vagina?

    I just realized, why do we always talk about sexual stuff on VM instead of texts? Everyone can read this stuff.

    I don't care its just funyy. I mean, there's some crazy stuff in this 450 message conversation over 2 years

    I'm thinking so, I dont think a butthole is very flexible l would imagine you'd only get like a few degrees of movement. It depends, A vagina is very flexible. It can go quite few degrees and still "take it".

    I don't think they get like 45 degrees curvy lol but they get noticeably curvy, you've never seen one in a porn?

    Why 10 to 15?

    There's a name for everything lmao.

    I hear the curvy ones can reach places us straight ones can't reach. Not sure it'd be worth it though, I don't think I'd want a curve in my ding a ling.

    Thay could work. I think a lot of guys would need to be involved though, either that or some really curvy penises. Have you ever seen a curvy penis? (They are called curvy Carls lmao)

    Say a guy is blasting away at a another's guys butt. He uses a hand to "reach around" the guy and jerk him off.

    It was in the context of a marine drill Sargent yelling at recruits. Nothing really deep to get, ya know?

    Just don't hesitate to object if you feel threatened. Us girls feel pressure to coelesce to male sexual desires and forget to look out for us
