I'd Rather Push a Chevy Than Drive a Reince Priebus (UPDATED)

How big of a fuckwad is the Republican National Committee's new chairman, Reince Priebus? When asked about the birther bullshit, did he call it disgusting, un-American or at least patently false? No, wouldn't want to offend your base. Instead, he tried to downplay its significance -- you know, because racism isn't a problem anymore -- and said it was an issue that he personally doesn't "get too excited about":

"I don't think it's an issue that moves voters. It's an issue in my opinion that I don't personally get too excited about, because I think the more important question is what's going on in this country in regards to jobs, to debt, and the deficit and spending. Those are the things that people are worried about. People aren't worried about these other issues."

Way to lead from the top.

The dick went on to blame Obama for causing the distraction himself(!) -- despite the fact that he and his aides have tried to ignore the story since election and Republicans have either fanned the flames or given flaccid "I take him at his word" answers that only validate wingnuts' views.

"The president ought to spend his time getting serious about repairing our economy," Priebus said. "Unfortunately his campaign politics and talk about birth certificates is distracting him from our No. 1 priority -- our economy."

What a disgusting asshole.
