On Thursday the Pennsylvania GOP sent out an email to 75,000 Jewish voters in the state warning that electing Obama could lead to a second Holocaust...The state GOP is now running away from that email as fast as it can.
But it isn't so simple:
Political consultant Bryan Rudnick was identified as the person responsible for it. Rudnick, reached Saturday night, confirmed that he no longer works for the party, which employed him a few weeks ago as a consultant to do outreach to Jewish voters.
"I had authorization from party officials" to send the e-mail, Rudnick said, but he declined to say who had signed off on it. "I'm not looking to drag anyone else through the mud, so I'm not naming names right now," he said.
Meanwhile, as Josh Marshall reports the McCain campaign's attempt to run away from the mailer accusing Obama of equaling Hitler, is the same McCain flack that pushed the Ashley Todd false attack story to the press.
Meanwhile, what's Nanookie of the North up to?
the Alaska Governor somehow drew a connection between Barack Obama's tax policy and an encroaching, nightmarish, communist government. The Illinois Democrat, she hysterically suggested, would, through his proposals, create a country "where the people are not free."
That was her in Des Moines yesterday, ugh. My town. And one of my fellow Iowans yells out a very, very special gift about 38 seconds in, loud enough for Palin to hear (and do nothing about) in reference to Obama. Sure sounds like...
"He's a Ni**er!"
Double KKKlassy. Palin hears it, you can tell as she pauses a second and stumbles through her script. But she does nothing, nor for that matter does the crowd, which thinks such talk is perfectly okie-dokie.
