Ze Stimulus, It Helps Ze Democrats

There’s really nothing that should shock be about the GOP (and especially Ken Blackwell) anymore, but still, this really blows my mind:

In an article published on Townhall today, RNC Chairman candidate and former Ohio governor Ken Blackwell urges congressional conservatives to oppose the reinvestment and recovery stimulus plan promoted by President-elect Obama. Though he offers standard conservative arguments against the plan — including a screed against the growth of “big government” — Blackwell seemed most concerned about the political benefit Democrats might see from successfully boosting the economy.

He warned that the bill, which calls for 80 percent job creation in the private sector, could create 600,000 new federal jobs — a problem because it would make it that much harder for for Republicans to win back Virginia.


Now, as you can imagine, a lot of people are mocking this today. I’m not going to sit here and pretend that a lot of people, Republican and Democrat, don’t think about things like this in Washington, but my question is pretty simple; who in the hell thinks it’s a good idea to say this publicly? Talk about going meta. Does anyone doubt that Senate Democrats are going to bring this article up in the face of Republican opposition? What happens if Ken Blackwell actuallys wins the RNC chairmanship? You think the DNC won’t make sure this follows him around for the next 4 years?

As they say, the stupid, it burns.
