GOP to Thousand Points of Light: Drop Dead

Republicans then:
I've spoken of a thousand points of light -of all the community organizations that are spread like stars throughout the nation doing good. We will work hand in hand, encouraging, sometimes leading, sometimes being led, rewarding. We will work on this in the White House, in the Cabinet agencies. I will go to the people and the programs that are the brighter points of light, and I'll ask every member of my Government to become involved. The old ideas are new again because they're not old, they are timeless: duty, sacrifice, commitment, and a patriotism that finds its expression in taking part and pitching in.
Republicans now:
Giuliani: "On the other hand, you have a resume from a gifted man with an Ivy League education. He worked as a community organizer. What? He worked -- I said -- I said, OK, OK, maybe this is the first problem on the resume."

Palin: "I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a "community organizer," except that you have actual responsibilities."
That's an ... interesting take. And I'm not so sure it's going to play well.

Yeah, it's funny... Obama started his career as a community organizer: helping people have a voice within their community. Palin started her career as parading T&A. I like where they're going with this meme...

I'm assuming tonight is "Drop dead "Big Tent"" and "F.U. to "Compassionate Conservatism"".

My favorite comeback is from a commenter at DailyKos:

"Jesus was a community organizer. Pilate was a governor."

And I see you linked to that quote on a previous thread, Otto Man. Mea maxima culpa.

Nah, it can't be repeated enough.

Obama's on MSNBC right now, mocking the everloving shit out of McCain. Game on.
