Christmas-Hating Republican Party Selling ‘Happy Holidays’ Ornaments

Conservatives are constantly telling us we are not allowed to wish people “Happy Holidays,” even if we don’t know their religion, and even if we are talking to freedom-loving Israeli settlers, because everyone everywhere should celebrate Jesus’ birfday. But apparently the Republican Party hates the baby messiah and his righteous Black Friday Taiwanese Blu-Ray players, because they are selling a “Limited Edition 2010 RNC Holiday Ornament” in their online store. WHERE ARE WE SUPPOSED TO HANG THAT, RNC, ON A “HOLIDAY” TREE? Are we supposed to attach it to a shrine to Malcolm X/Michael Steele on “Kwanzaa”? Heathens!

You Can Set Your Watch To GOP.com Dismantling New GOP.com Features

Every single thing on the RNC’s newish web site is eventually removed, in shame, 12-24 hours after it is introduced, so it is sad but unsurprising that GOP.am—that’s GOP.com’s fashionable “conservative URL” handle—has been incinerated, kind of.

Look, A Well Produced Internet Video Game From GOP.com

Have you all pored through today’s RNCRESEARCHBRIEFING? Eh, it’s pretty good; we’ll give it a 7 on the ol’ RNCRESEARCHBRIEFING Scale. So: Michael Steele invented a video game, according to the RNCRESEARCHBRIEFING: “‘The Senate version of lapdogs.GOP.com is our latest effort to hold these Democrats accountable for their actions.’ – RNC Chairman Michael Steele.” Great, let’s check it out.

Meanwhile, At GOP.com, Some New Terrible Thing

Looks like the RNC is still trying to give this “Internet” thing a go: “With an ever-increasing number of Czar appointments by President Obama, it has become clear that no position is too absurd. In an effort to assist in adding another cumbersome bureaucratic layer to government and to help properly ensure the basic human right of friendship to all Americans, a new Friendship Fairness Czar has recently been appointed. Tasked with the daunting responsibility of making sure that every Facebook user is equal, this new Czar will help redistribute the wealth of friendship from those who are too popular to those who are poor in friends.” Ha ha because Facebook friends are like “grocery money,” essentially!

Paultards Have Obviously At This Point Already Subjugated GOP.com

There is no question that the responsible thing to do is for GOP.com to resign itself to mutually assured destruction by way of asking KeepAmericaSafe.com for “humanitarian intervention.” (Thanks to Agent “Jason R.” for photo reconnaissance.)

Yo What Up “What Up”?

Two seconds ago this blog was called “What Up?” He is running out of Wire allusions and “the Corner” is already taken! GOP Webmaster, please add Michael Steele’s new “Change the Game” blog to “Accomplishments.” [GOP.com] Read more on Yo What Up “What Up”?…

GOP.com Is Hilarious And Broken Because It’s *Not Even A Website*

Michael Steele you have got to stop it with the funny today, we can’t take much more. NO NO DON’T GO ON TV! Oh no he’s going to say something too hilarious! Uh oh: “It’s a new platform for us. It’s not even really a web site.” No! A website is *exactly* what it is! This is too much. Let’s read some arbitrary news outlet to get away from all this, it doesn’t matter which… ah, New York Daily News, as good a choice as any, let’s see what’s in the ollll’ NYDN… “GOP Posts Password, Admin Instructions on New Web Site.” GAHH.

WHO’S MAKING FUN OF WHAT NOW? “The RNC’s big relaunch of its website has not gone so well today. In the last hour or so, the site has been crashing periodically. The Obama campaign’s former online guru, Joe Rospars, tells TPMDC: ‘You know your web program is in trouble when your site can’t even handle the traffic bump from people making fun of your web program.'” [TPM] Read more on …

Sweet Crickets, This New GOP Website Is One Helluva Funbag

Yes. YES. Look at him shake it. He’s like, “What up? I’m here, and it’s time to party, baby.” Again: a hilarious dancing hobbit version of Michael Steele appears when you load the new GOP.com. Everyone is loving this. Think Progress is having a very Think Progress-y field day, with its dreaded flat tone of icy partisanship: “However, one of the people listed as a ‘great Republican’ is baseball legend Jackie Robinson, who actually identified himself as an independent. In fact, Robinson spoke out about the ‘hatred’ he saw at the 1964 GOP convention, where Barry Goldwater won the nomination. He called it ‘one of the most unforgettable and frightening experiences of my life.'” Holy potatoes, this is one fuckin’ website here. We’ll probably post about some other insane aspect of it in like an hour. [GOP.com] Read more on Sweet Crickets, This New GOP Website Is One Helluva Funbag…

A Children’s Treasury Of ‘GOP Faces’ From The Hot New GOP Website

The best aspect of the newly redesigned Republican Party website — aside from that amazing “What up?” thing — is the ability to refresh and refresh and refresh the homepage, for hours, to see all of the “GOP Faces” in circulation in the upper left corner, between the “G” and the “P,” where, what, a “Y” is supposed to go? But it’s just some random person’s head instead? Well your editors Jim and Juli have seen most or all of the “GOP Faces,” and analyzed them. Click the clicky to meet the members of what must be some secret “other” Republican Party in an alternate dimension, what with the youth and the diversity and the albino.

Look! GOP.com Provides Opportunity For Minor Hijinks!

No really, the RNC’s website doesn’t even ask for your e-mail address or anything to send a terrible tea bag postcard to any of these four Democratic politicians. There are 11,000+ submitted already. Can Wonkette pull off a plurality of the final total, with all funny names and/or Politico writers? Sure, if you’re not all busy with your lack of a job or whatever. It takes like -2 seconds. As for the choice of tea bags, well… how could we not choose the sack of rat shit? [RNC] Read more on Look! GOP.com Provides Opportunity For Minor Hijinks!…
