In the words of one of my favorite fictional writers, I couldn’t help but wonder…
Is there really no such thing as bad PR?
Earlier this week, a Republican National Committee (RNC) web site began promoting the so-called “Obama Card.” It’s all part of http://www.gop.com/obamacard/ where you can supposedly shop with abandon, thanks to the reckless ways of Washington.
Let’s say you’re ready to go do some damage with your plastic. Like a smart shopper, you throw a word into the search engine. Take “Jew” for instance.
Put “Jew” into the Obama Card search engine and what do you get? Several titles, including mine, Cool Jew. Oh, and a few others… like a little special somin’ somin’ in the lower left hand corner entitled, Jews and Their Lies.
Hello, RNC? This is your conscience calling. Isn’t this entire site one big whopper of a lie? There is no such thing as an Obama Card. And your shop is a fake filled with bigotry, pornography and… well, you take a look.
Just go to http://www.tinyurl.com/RNC.
Oh wait, what was I thinking? That doesn’t work. You have to add on a word. Try putting this in your browser:
