How stupid do you have to be to invite more negative attention about your own scandal while releasing harmless information about your intended target? DeflectionFail:
The RNC “has been on the defensive this week because of some questionable expenditures,” First Read notes, and is “pushing back today by sending around a list of what the Democratic National Committee has spent money on, including more than $2 million on luxury hotels and caterers, $75,000 for car services, and $262,000 for ‘other events’ at the Kennedy Center, Fenway Park, and a D.C. nightclub.”
The only problem is that there is nothing shocking in the list of Democratic expenditures that comes close to matching what Republicans spent on “bondage-themed nightclubs” and private jets.
Here’s an idea, RNC: Clean up your act. Once that happens (as if…), go ahead and point fingers. Until then, it might be a good idea to stop the self-inflicted wounds.
Oh, and fire your chairman… but not too soon. We need him around for a few more months.
