Stay Classy, Sacramento

On its Web site, the Sacramento County Republican Party compared Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., to terrorist leader Osama bin Laden, urging voters to "Waterboard Barack Obama." "The difference between Osama and Obama is just a little B.S," said the ad below, which has since been removed from its Web site. Hector Barajas, a spokesman for the state Republican Party, said that the state party had asked the Sacramento County GOP chairman, Craig MacGlashan, to remove the image, which the Sacramento Bee was industrious enough to snag. "I called [MacGlashan] and asked him if they could remove it, and they are revamping their Web site and no longer having these type of images," Barajas said.  "We made clear this isn’t the type of campaign that Sen. McCain nor us has been trying to run.  There are no questions on Barack Obama’s patriotism, love for this country or whether he’s  Muslim or not, becase he’s not, he’s a Christian." — Jake Tapper and Julia Hoppock
