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.”

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.”
