Old joke, different twist. It's been around for at least a couple of years. Just change the "consultant for..." to whomever you don't like and it's a "new" story! Republicans are particularly good a adapting old stories like this, since they don't have the creativity to come up with any of their own. And, it doesn't take much intelligence to "cut and paste."
Also, I erred. It's pandagon.net. Oops.
Cut the Punditry! There's almost no such thing as an original joke. I laughed and thats all that matters.
