Tony's column begins with this:
Some of my grumpier Republican friends are in a lather over the Obama campaign's hubris of late. Its tweaking of the official presidential seal was unveiled at a meeting of Democratic governors in Chicago last week.
The New York Daily News quotes Tucker Bounds, Senator McCain's spokesman, saying:
I think we can all agree that we need presidential candidates that are serious enough not to play make-believe on the campaign trail.
It's laughable, ridiculous, preposterous and revealing all at the same time.Remember those quotes - I wanna get back to them.
Via crooksandliars, I found this steaming pile of truth at the Weekly Standard. They're claiming it's illegal.
Since when are conservatives concerned about campaign illegalities? McCain's over his spending limit with nary a peep from these guardians of our public safety.
Whatever - so it's illegal to copy the presidential seal? Ok fine. Tell that to the Republicans
Take a look at what this blog found.
The Seal of the Republican Presidential Task Force:
The Replican Senatorial Inner Circle:
The Republican Presidential Roundtable: I mean, illegal IS illegal, right?
By the way, Obama has dropped his use of the seal. Will the Republicans follow suit and stop their illegal seal activities?
Yea, I doubt that, too.
