I think some Democrat must have hacked the RNC website. The obvious suspect is the author of the Daily Kos, who links to this item, purportedly a response to the Democrats’ now-famous (or infamous, according to taste) “wheelchair ad” on Social Security.

I mean, the Party of Lincoln couldn’t possibly be that dim, or that humorless.

Could they?
