And this is why I don’t like the Republican Party.
In a 72-page PowerPoint presentation for potential donors and fundraisers, the Republican National Committee included images comparing President Barack Obama to the Joker, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) to Cruella de Vil, and Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (Nev.) to Scooby-Doo.
Give me a break. The GOP has done some crazy stuff before, but this is just ridiculous.
The Washington Post, via MSNBC.com, has this to say about the rest of the presentation:
The document was obtained by Politico after being left at a Florida hotel where the Republicans had gathered Feb. 18.
The presentation also outlined how donors will be encouraged to give to Republicans at a time when the party holds neither the White House nor Congress: “Save the country from trending toward Socialism!”
It cites “fear” and “extreme negative feelings toward existing administration” as reasons why donors might contribute to the GOP.
Said Democratic National Committee spokesman Brad Woodhouse: “If you had any doubt, any doubt whatsoever, that the Republican Party has been taken over by the fear-mongering lunatic fringe, those doubts were erased today.”
*shaking head* I mean, I’m a little surprised that they did this, but what annoys me even more is how bootleg the actual presentation looks. For a group with the finances and the experience that the RNC has, I would expect the presentation to look a lot more professional. On the cover slide (pictured below), the images are stretched, and they even misspelled Cruella’s name (it’s “de Vil,” not “DeVille”). Get it together guys… at least if you’re trying to make these leaders look incompetent, don’t make yourself look just as incompetent. #FAIL
