DNC Responds to Tea Party Protesters, "Birthers" and Other Malcontents

Posted By on Thu, Aug 6, 2009 at 8:09 AM

Have you seen the Democratic National Committee video making the rounds on the Internet?

I'm not sure it's going to silence any members of the St. Louis Tea Party (especially now that Fox News has made the group so legit), but it does seem to fight fire with fire by using video clips of the protester to portray them as a bitter mob of wackos.

What do you think? And -- as the video suggests -- do you think the Republican National Committee would really try to stop the protesters if enough people complained?
