The Republicans just can't seem to get the internet right. To help solve this problem they brought in Matt DeLuca, from National Journal:

Matt DeLuca is leaving his position at New Media Strategies to start as the victory digital manager at the Republican National Committee. He will oversee the RNC's new Social Victory Center - a Facebook app meant to rally voters and provide them with campaign information - which "can help bridge the offline-online gap and become an effective tool for both the national and state parties," DeLuca wrote in an email announcing his move.  
The problem? DeLuca has some twitter issues:

Oh, there's more.

We all know Mitt Romney is trying to appeal to people of color this election cycle, what better way than to trivialize racism?


This is supposed to be funny I take it?


So the Republican National Committee's social media expert thinks trivializing racism is a good idea? Tossing the terms "racism" and "racist" around in this way is clearly an attempt to mitigate and delegitimize the term. Is this what Republicans believe? That racism is not real? That the term itself is a joke?

Mitt Romney might need another NAACP speech to make his case that racism is not important/doesn't exist or is the Republican National Committee's Victory Digital Manager just speaking for himself?

Well Amy Winehouse's overdose and racism... at least he doesn't mock date rape.


Oh well.

Good luck Republicans as your management team mocks drug addiction, racism, and date rape. I am sure that is really going to pay off as you go after those independent voters that just love immoderate rhetoric like that.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
