The RNC is watching...

Dan Froomkin is a popular Web columnist for the Washington Post. Every afternoon, he writes a lively digest of White House press coverage. A couple of weeks ago, there was some manufactured controversy, as Washington Post editors started to talk about how there could be “reader confusion” if people thought that he was part of their news division.

It turned out that readers had not complained; it was actually coming from Bush/GOP operatives. Specifically, from a guy named Patrick Ruffini who was the Bush-Cheney ’04 campaign Webmaster. He currently works for the RNC, and he wanted to make sure the Bush administration wasn’t confused by the opinion column.

The interesting part comes when you look at Ruffini’s own site. He has created his own “2008 Presidential Wire” that digests pertinent stories for his multitude of fans. And one of his sources? This blog! Check it out – the RNC is watching my crazy, socialist ravings.

Uh oh. Looks like someone's got an superiority complex smashed up together with his persecution complex.

Nah, it's not your socialist ravings. It's quite simple.

He's Jewish. He still wears the "Us 1, Christ 0" shirt we bought him in May.

Only because the NCAA continues to fail to make satin Fighting Jewish jackets to my specification.
