Re: Jumpin’ Jehosophat!

Jonah, as one of those “right-wing domestic terrorists” laughing his head off at Barack Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize, I was shocked at how badly off-message the DNC’s Communications Director has wandered:

“The Republican Party has thrown in its lot with the terrorists – the Taliban and Hamas this morning – in criticizing the President for receiving the Nobel Peace prize,” DNC communications director Brad Woodhouse told POLITICO.

Didn’t he get the memo? “Barack Obama: Taleban Can Be Involved In Afghanistan’s Future.”

Who is this Brad Woodhouse to compare America’s new partners for peace to Republican terrorists? With this one tasteless remark, he risks damaging Obama’s “extraordinary efforts” at “cooperation between peoples” that the Nobel committee rightly recognized.

Up next! More Nobel-friendly peace initiatives:

“Barack Obama: Putin Can Be Involved In Poland’s Future.”

“Barack Obama: Iranian Nuclear Program Can Be Involved In Israel’s Future.”
