This past weekend, I shot off an email to Dr. Ada Fisher, the Republican national committeewoman for North Carolina, asking her to speak out against RNC chairman Reince Priebus' disgusting comparison of President Obama to Costa Concordia coward Francesco Schettino. I did this hoping that Fisher had at least some semblance of decency.
Well, this afternoon I was out walking when my Yahoo! Mail Android app beeped. Turned out Fisher had replied. I thought I was getting a response. What I got instead was a mass email on what was up with Republicans and the presidency. This email was also sent to several black media outlets (Fisher is one of three African-American members of the RNC) and right-wing email lists.
I was prepared for Fisher to agree with Priebus' sentiments. What I wasn't expecting was to find out that a member of a major party's national committee finds it even remotely okay to send unsolicited email. Oh well--at least I got a reminder of what passes for leadership in the Republican Party.
