Shout Out: RNC Chairman Mike Duncan

Earlier today, Republican National Committee Chairman Mike Duncan formally denounced the use of Barack Obama’s full name (which, as you know, includes the frighteningly evil-sounding “Hussein”) in a recent news release from the Tennessee Republican Party.

Said Duncan, "The RNC rejects these kinds of campaign tactics. We believe this election needs to be about the critical issues confronting our nation."

The news release, which also included the now-famous photo of Obama in traditional Somali tribal garb, has since been revised.

Thanks for policing your own, Mr. Duncan.

Nice to see some folks having fun with this development, like this post by AOL Political Machine’s David Knowles, which jokingly posits John SIDNEY McCain is a “one man sleeper cell from Panama.”
