A right wing hack website decided that this was an important story: Chris Rock makes jokes about black people. Chris Rock held a fundraiser for Obama. Obama may have a problem with black support was worth a story. Except switch out “Chris Rock” for “DNC Jewish Liason” and “black” for “Jewish”. Add lazy main stream media sources and this becomes a story. (This is reminiscent of the Jon Favreau beer pong b.s.):
“Danni has excelled in her role handling Jewish issues for the Chair in her Congressional office and was brought on here part time to do outreach to the Jewish Community,” said DNC spokesman Brad Woodhouse. “Like many in the age of social media, she had things posted on her Facebook page that she now regrets and which she has apologized for. Her employment both in the Chair’s Congressional office and at the DNC is a testament to her knowledge and professionalism and nothing more – and no smear driven by the right wing noise machine is going to impact her status as a trusted member of this team.”Obama donors tied to controversial Facebook post – POLITICO.com.
DNC had better of ignore this Breitbart-esque bullsh*t non-scandal. This does and will do nothing to dissuade Jewish voters from supporting Obama. In fact, he’s got 2/3 of that demographic supporting him in 2012. This will be a story you will see instead of something important as media outlets pick it up:
**Note: the picture here is from 2006, underscoring the fact that puerile humor from the way-back can politically haunt you today.
Note, these 2012 articles underscore the fact that puerile political reporters have little ability to determine whether a story from a right wing blog is of any importance whatsoever.
