Politico got hold of a fundraising strategy that the RNC was putting together to drive even more fear into the hearts of major donors. In the PowerPoint presentation, they refer to their very own donors as “ego-driven” “reactionaries.”

The presentation depicts Obama as the Joker, Nancy Pelosi as Cruella De Ville and Harry Reid as Scooby Doo. The red-scare buzzword plastered all over the document: “SOCIALISM”!

Michael Steele called the strategy “indefensible” and said that the RNC will be handling investigations of this scandal internally.

Um, this memo was developed internally under RNC finance director Robert Bickhart and no one believes Steele didn’t know about it. Tea Party rhetoric is simply too fashionable for the RNC not to appropriate.

This is sick, sick shit from sick, sick people.

In the meantime, it looks like Nancy Pelosi is on the brink of a glorious victory for healthcare reform! Then it goes back to the senate and unfortunately Harry Reid* is no Nancy Pelosi.

I just try to keep the faith by watching Rachel Maddow**, who assures us every night that healthcare reform will happen no matter what Stupak and “The Family” on C Street say or do.


* This is somewhat off-topic but I want to go back a few months to when John Heilemann and Mark Halperin reported in Game Change that Reid had referred to Obama as “a light-skinned African-American with no Negro dialect.” This was a hideous thing to say as Reid himself admitted in his apology.

But William Bennett, former Drug Czar under the Bush administration, got on CNN and started demanding censure for Reid, even though Bennett had infamously proclaimed on his Morning in America radio show that aborting all African-American babies “would be an impossible, ridiculous, and morally reprehensible thing to do, but the crime rate would go down.” For some reason, Anderson Cooper didn’t tell this racist and homophobe to take the log out of his own eye – so much for “Keeping Them Honest.” (But then Anderson Cooper has to stay impartial, which means he must stay in the closet while everyone else on staff can feel free to mention their opposite-sex partners.) Where do these hypocrites get off! And the Republicans in congress are embarrassing themselves left and right these days, denouncing proposals in democratic packages that they themselves had authored and decrying the reconciliation process that they themselves had not only endorsed but used over and over again under the Bush administration.

**Why is msnbc the only station that’s exposing the Republicans for what they are? I hope more truth leaks out.

UPDATE: A right-wing website called Obama’s Snafu has been referring readers to my blog! ┬áDon’t they know that this is the domain of a flaming liberal?! ┬áDid they even read a thing I wrote?
