Omnipotent Republican Staffer Strikes Again

A few years ago someone (I think it was Franken?) noticed that the ever offensive, gaffe-ridden documents that periodically leak from the GOP are always blamed on an anonymous 'staffer.' These leaks always line up with the actual strategies that Republicans use, but instead of owning up to it we always get these pathetic excuses about how those damn staffers are up to no good again!

So now the GOP has accidentally released yet another document, detailing their attempt to cry socialism and apparently comparing Obama to the Joker? I don't know, it's pretty stupid, but my first thoughts on reading it were 'ah, that staffer is back!' But Michael Steele surprised me:
"You don't defend it," Republican National Committee Chairman Michael S. Steele said Thursday in an interview on Fox News.
Whoa! That's huge! No lame attempt to pass the buck, just a clear admission of guilt and a nice dash of personal responsibility-
"A staffer was putting together a presentation for a small group of nine or 10 folks and thought they would intersperse their presentation with humorous shots. They're inappropriate."
Augh, damn you Republican staffer! Your ability to function as a scapegoat, while potentially not even existing at all, knows no bounds!
