Republicans Who Won’t Give Up

What do you do if you’re a Republican strategist? Barack Obama has just delivered the speech of his lifetime. It was praised as widely as any speech has been praised in media across the country. It was praised across the political spectrum. Even Bey Buchanan praised its integrity and Charles Murray called it “brilliant.” Do you give up on the Pastor Wright connection and move on to other things? Naw.

Here’s what a couple of Republican strategists (helpfully, along with their neo-thugee credentials) are quoted in TPM Election Central as saying:

“You don’t have to say that he’s unpatriotic, you don’t question his patriotism,” said Chris LaCivita, the Republican strategist who helped create the Swift Boat Veterans ads in 2004. “Because I guaran-damn-tee you that with that footage you don’t have to say it.”

“Obama knows that if somebody puts him in church on some day that Wright said some crazy [stuff] like white people injected blacks with AIDS he’s in a world of hurt,” said Rick Wilson, who made the 2002 ads tying then-Sen. Max Cleland, a disabled veteran, to Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein. “I would eat this up like cake.”

Hey Rick Wilson, could that somebody be — you? It’s not as though these sorts of things haven;t been done before.

Some of us still remember this gem from 2004,

which was bogus, of course.

It would be soooooooooo easy to use your computer to “place” Barack Obama into the congregation on one of those Jeremiah Wright videos, wouldn’t it? Rick? Rick?

  1. Chris LaCivita is an enemy of the United States of America. He spreads terror for money . He is against the citizens. He is an example of one who sells out this country for a buck. He has cells of operatives just like Osama Binladen and Karl Rove. I am concerned that men like this will conspire to kill Sen. Obama, our only hope to unify this world. These men should be locked up for life in a maximum prison. They are lethal.
