This Sounds Familiar…

Can’t fault the Republicans for lack of chutzpah…

You’d think with a presidential candidate who sought the endorsement of someone who praised Hitler (yes, you Mr. Hagee), they’d be careful not to get into Holocaust talk.

But then again, this is the RNC we’re talking about.

Barack Obama made a statement referencing his great uncle’s helping liberate Auschwitz. It turns out it was Ohrduf he helped liberate, which was a subcamp of the infamous Buchenwald. Obama made a mistake, yet the important part of the story was correct.

But leave it to the RNC to even politicize the Holocaust. Even Alex Castellanos, he of the infamous “black hands” Jesse Helms ad, thinks this criticism is beyond the pale:

It’s the Al Gore Fibber McFibbypants playbook all over again.  Looks like the GOP is going to try to make Obama out to be the bastard child of Algore and Johnkerry.  And if McCain manages to lure Obama out to Iraq with him, they may manage a Dukakis moment as well. (I personally would like to see Obama walking around, pointing and saying, “Dog. Pony. Dog dog dog, pony pony pony,” but that would probably be out of character…
