RE: DNC’s Denials and Desperation
Some of you have already read DNC Communications Director Brad Woodhouse’s desperate fundraising plea from Friday in which he actually accused Republicans of “making up so-called ‘scandals’ out of thin air.”
I don’t need to tell you all how bizarre that statement is. You’ve spent the last weeks covering the events embroiling the White House—the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups, the Justice Department’s monitoring of reporters, and the White House’s changing story on Benghazi. Whatever one thinks of these scandals, they’re not “made up.”
The IRS admitted to actions they previously denied. Some of you know firsthand the effects of the Justice Department’s snooping. And in Benghazi, four Americans lost their lives.
The DNC is either in denial or desperate. I’m not sure which is worse: pretending the gross incompetence and unaccountability displayed by the federal government is a farce, or attempting to distort these serious scandals for the sake of monetary gain.
Maybe the DNC has decided that if they can’t defend their party, they’ll just deny reality. It’s sad and shameful. And I wish I were making this up.
