The National Republican Congressional Committee tried their best to connect Democratic lawmakers to the so-called IRS scandal, but oops! it backfired. Just when we thought the GOP couldn’t crap on themselves any more, just when we thought our pointing and laughing at them was subsiding, they revived their clownitude just for us!
An attempt by the National Republican Congressional Committee to embarrass Democrats went awry on Thursday, when the group published a blog post riddled with errors.
For example, they referred to then-IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman as “Dan.” They must have missed Ron Christie getting pummeled by Joy-Ann Reid about that very guy.
They also mentioned two House Democrats who had already retired, so they were no longer “House Democrats.”
Next they confused Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) with the former mayor of Medellín, Colombia, Luis Pérez Gutiérrez– in a photo! Yes, they managed to put their ignorance and sloppiness out there in picture form for all to see. HuffPo has the visuals.
NRCC spokesman Daniel Scarpinato told The Huffington Post, “This was an early draft that was not meant to be posted publicly because it had not yet been edited.”
Isn’t that just like the NRCC? They go to all that effort to find just the right photo and wham! Someone has to go and tell them it’s the wrong Gutierrez. And the wrong “House Democrats.” And the wrong Shulman.
They must have been crestfallen.
No wonder they had wanted the “R” word (“Republican”) taken off the NRCC website. When in doubt, disassociate.
