They just keep sinking lower and lower.

On Thursday the Pennsylvania GOP sent out an email to 75,000 Jewish voters in the state warning that electing Obama could lead to a second Holocaust, the AP reports:

"Jewish Americans cannot afford to make the wrong decision on Tuesday, November 4th, 2008," the e-mail reads. "Many of our ancestors ignored the warning signs in the 1930s and 1940s and made a tragic mistake. Let's not make a similar one this year!"

A copy of the e-mail, provided by Democratic officials, says it was "Paid for by the Republican Federal Committee of PA - Victory 2008."

It warns "Fellow Jewish Voters" of the danger of a second Holocaust due to the threats to Israel from its neighbors and touts Republican presidential candidate John McCain's qualifications over those of Obama.

That's so insulting it's practically screaming "vote for anyone but me!"

Can they possibly stoop any lower?

No wait, don't answer that- there's still a week until Election Day. *sigh*

The GOP has spewed nothing but organized evil. They cannot be allowed to win.

And over in Canada, it took the full page when the prime minister sent Rosh Hashanah cards to voters who were Jewish, but didn't advertise it, and so felt unhappy at the PM invading their religious privacy. I can't imagine how that would fly up here; maybe we would beat the sender to death with hockey sticks, murmuring apologies all the while.

That means that according to Godwin's Law, they just lost the election!

The GOP needs to be handed their asses on a platter. I'd happily serve it up.

Is it prematurely optimistic that desperation propaganda like that might actually be due to them fearing a legitimate defeat?
Do you suppose it was paid for in Obama Bucks?
