More Creativity from the Beltway

The National Republican Congressional Committee sent out a press release yesterday blasting Kyrstin Sinema. Here’s the headline:

Sinema Heads to Washington with Hopes of Being the Next Obama-Pelosi Rubber Stamp

Arizona Democrat Recruit Meets With Washington Party Leaders Who Hand-Picked Her to Push for the Failed Obama-Pelosi Agenda

Okay.

They also sent out a press release blasting Andrei Cherny:

Cherny Heads to Washington with Hopes of Being the Next Obama-Pelosi Rubber Stamp

Arizona Democrat Recruit Meets With Washington Party Leaders Who Hand-Picked Him to Push for the Failed Obama-Pelosi Agenda

Look familiar? It should. The accompanying press release is exactly the same with the name “Cherny” substituted for “Sinema.”

Oh, and a third release hit my inbox:

Kirkpatrick Heads to Washington with Hopes of Being the Next Obama-Pelosi Rubber Stamp

Arizona Democrat Recruit Meets With Washington Party Leaders Who Hand-Picked Her to Push for the Failed Obama-Pelosi Agenda

This one is most laughable since Kirkpatrick’s record veered towards the “blue dog” wing of the party. It seemed that every release I got during her term was crafted to let me know that she was definitely not voting with that Obama guy. Of course, acknowledging that Kirkpatrick was there before would mean changing the template. Too much work.

You’d think that somewhere, issues that have something to do with Arizonans would fit into these press releases. Our high foreclosure rates, problems with employment and education…something. Maybe even something about the actual records of the candidates. Naw. That might mean finding out what goes on outside of Washington, you know, something that has to do with real people.

    The beauty is that they used a rubber stamp message to accuse someone of being a rubber stamp.
