On Obama's birthday, national Republicans mock Deeds one more time
It's been eight long months since Democrat Creigh Deeds lost to Republican Bob McDonnell for the Virginia governor's mansion in a decidely lopsided election.
And it seems Republicans still want to gloat. Just a little.
The occasion? President Obama's birthday.
The Republican National Committee is offering electronic greeting cards, including one featuring Deeds, former New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine and former Massachusetts Senate candidate Martha Coakley -- all candidates who sought help from Obama, some perhaps reluctantly, but lost anyway.
"We got you that dinner jacket you had your eye on,'' the caption says. "We noticed you were missing some coattails."
On a new Republican Web site, you can chose from more than a dozen cards, including ones featuring Rep. Charles Rangel, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich. Read the Post's story about the cards.
