The RNC’s Bash-Obama Bash

Obama picThe ever-snarky Wonkette offers a hilariously offensive analysis of the GOP machine’s strategy to target Barack Obama if he wins the Democratic presidential nomination. It’s a satirized version of actual plans laid out at the Republican National Committee’s “winter retreat” in Beverly Hills.

The Republican National Committee (RNC), and all Republicans, are carefully, quietly watching Democrats and salivating over the chance to easily take down Obama in a general election. All Republican patriots are eagerly laying in wait to bring his many verifiable and abundantly documented weaknesses into the mainstream media, to attack and destroy with ease. A primary vote for Obama is a general election vote for McCain, and anyone who is aware of this can go exploit it.

I didn't find the Wonkette piece hilarious at all. Say what you will about the RNC, the fact is they have a history of being very skilled at attacking and defeating Democrats and the strategy the RNC has outlined for taking on Obama is likely to be a successful one.
