Oh, this is just too rich:

Four years before the GOP embraced John Kennedy as the Republican best suited to challenge Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu for her seat, they were blasting the guy as a weak-kneed, loser populist, with no political know-how or support.

That’s because before Kennedy chose to take on Landrieu in 2008, he ran as a Democrat for the U.S. Senate in 2004. And in the process of finishing a distant third in the race, the National Republican Senatorial Committee put together a scathing background file on Kennedy that, given the inverse political scenario today, is highly embarrassing for his current candidacy.

In the 13-page 2004 report, which was obtained by The Huffington Post, the NRSC attacks Kennedy for supporting Sen. John Kerry over President George Bush, for having an ineffective legislative record, using state funds to further his career, and not even being the Democratic Party’s first choice for the job.

Four years later — with Louisiana presenting the one serious chance for the GOP to pick up a Senate seat — the group is hoping the political world suffers a bout of amnesia and that Kennedy can prove to be a bit more effective as a Republican.

HuffPo then provides some nice, juicy samples of the NRSC’s attacks on their own candidate, concluding, “In this race, it seems, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee already has a hand with its opposition research.”

I don’t know what I can add to that, really.  I’d say that it demonstrates that Republicans are simply politicians who could never hack it as Democrats, but most Democrats can’t hack it as Democrats either…
