On Thursday afternoon, the RNC had to hastily take down the site’s banner, which featured a picture of Asian children

heartbreakangel 15th-Jun-2012 08:47 am (UTC)
My thoughts exactly.

LOLOLOLOLOL.

I'd vote for horse_ebooks before a republican anyway.

pretty sure satan is a republican tbh

No, Satan's more like a progressive parent. He wanted us to be intelligent, to be able to think for ourselves. God didn't.
sakuraberries 15th-Jun-2012 04:45 pm (UTC)
This.

Have you seen the Good Guy Lucifer meme?
urplesquirrel 15th-Jun-2012 04:55 pm (UTC)
I love these! Thanks for the hours of time-wasting entertainment.
maladaptive 15th-Jun-2012 05:03 pm (UTC)
omg these are amazing
bmh4d0k3n 15th-Jun-2012 05:18 pm (UTC)
AMAZING. Lol, "Sorry Job."

Omg that killed me. XD

This is magical
very_veggie 15th-Jun-2012 10:34 pm (UTC)
Well, I know what I'm doing for the next few hours!

Of course! Horse ebooks promised to help me build my chicken!

Your icon = immediate end thread, we can all go home. XD

If I ever become a parent, I want that look. That look will get my kids to stop whatever they are doing and STFD so mommy can go back to her stories. :3
elobelia 15th-Jun-2012 06:40 pm (UTC)
I'm a new teacher and I've been working on developing that look. Haven't mastered it yet though. I call it the "death stare."
oceandezignz 15th-Jun-2012 06:51 pm (UTC)
I work at a theme park and I sort of have this look/stance that is no where NEAR TLJ's but it can get the point across.

I drop my eyes down half-lidded to look at the little bugger who's in trouble, purse my lips in a 'oh no you didn't' way which is usually opposite of the direction of my eyes, and a hand gracefully falls to my waist... where fingers graze my belt.

They usually do what I want by then - and that's GTFO.

But I want TLJ's look. Its the kind of look that'll make you admit you cheated on a test, stole a car and sold some weed all in the same breath.
alryssa 15th-Jun-2012 08:38 am (UTC)
I lol'd. Then I realised someone somewhere was being paid for this nonsense. :/

muppetfromhell 15th-Jun-2012 11:28 am (UTC)
knowing the political persuasions of most of the people in the trenches of the design/marketing industry... I'm not entirely sure this was an accident. ;)
bowtomecha 15th-Jun-2012 09:33 am (UTC)
The people in that photo look bewildered and uncomfortable. And one lady is getting rabbit ears. Haha.
furrygreen 15th-Jun-2012 09:38 am (UTC)
This... this... THIS is the stuff of dreams! Good job, Republicans. You can't even put together a reasonably simple website. How did you ever think you could hold a country together?

Pro tip: the combination of refusal to tell what exactly you are representing and the evidence of censorship doesn't look good out there on the interwebs.

PS. I love the straw poll results. I lul'ed.

That's what happens when you rely on babelfish for all of your translating needs!
maladaptive 15th-Jun-2012 01:44 pm (UTC)
Funny, just last night I was talking to some friends about how awesome Obama's tumblr is. I mean, there are posts tagged with "#gifs gifs gifs!"

Meanwhile, the republicans need to hire someone who knows how to internet.
baked_goldfish 15th-Jun-2012 04:59 pm (UTC)
They had a photo of Obama throwing a football with the caption, "clear eyes, full hearts," and the tag "#can't lose!". I was overwhelmed.
maladaptive 15th-Jun-2012 05:05 pm (UTC)
I really want to know who's behind that tumblr, because it's a brilliant piece of connecting with the target audience and moving a message-- a mostly positive message, and haven't folks been saying that liberal have a real problem with using positive messages to bring the base together? They certainly can't fire up the base like conservatives.

But that tumblr just makes me ♥
poetic_pixie_13 15th-Jun-2012 05:49 pm (UTC)
Whoever runs Obama's tumblr is amazing. Their tags always fill me with glee.
doverz 15th-Jun-2012 02:11 pm (UTC)
Didn't the RNC already have a disastrous website with Michael Steele behind it? I'm pretty sure they did and it was an epic failure. You think they would have learned from that...
ceilidh 15th-Jun-2012 03:06 pm (UTC)
hahahaahahahhaahah
nightfury 15th-Jun-2012 03:13 pm (UTC)
this is embarrassing
crossfire 15th-Jun-2012 03:45 pm (UTC)
How is internet formed? How RNC win elaction?
nikoel 15th-Jun-2012 04:24 pm (UTC)
LOL

Looks like they realized their efforts weren't helping their cause in any way. The RNCLatinos.com site isn't even up anymore - it just redirects you to GOP.com
little_rachael 15th-Jun-2012 04:47 pm (UTC)
This is beautiful.
mimblexwimble 15th-Jun-2012 04:51 pm (UTC)
As of Thursday evening, however, Obama was winning the unscientific survey 55 percent to 45 percent — highly unusual on a partisan website.

Tumblr bomb.
baked_goldfish 15th-Jun-2012 05:03 pm (UTC)
As concerned as I am about Romney's chances of actually becoming president, considering both the state of the economy and the state of disenfranchisement of minority and poor voters across the country...his campaign's social networking attempts have been a fucking joke. They tried to get people to use a hashtag on twitter for his birthday, like 20 people total used it over three days.
maladaptive 15th-Jun-2012 05:07 pm (UTC)
That's so sad it actually kind of tugs on my heartstrings. I had the same reaction when I found out his tumblr had no notes on it.

"Awwwww! That's so sad-- wait a minute. I should be cackling maniacally because that's hilarious. But mostly it makes me feel bad."
elobelia 15th-Jun-2012 06:43 pm (UTC)
I wouldn't feel bad. I mean, I doubt Romney even uses the internet, if someone even told him about tumblr he'd just ask why the heck they're spending campaign money on gymnasts.

Oh god this is glorious.
