Reince Priebus is the “the boosterish, workaholic chairman of the Wisconsin GOP.”
Oh, he is so much more than that. He’s Wisconsin’s Barney Fife and sometimes mentioned as a possible replacement for his good friend Michael Steele.
In a recent media conference call with Wispolitics.com, about Sen. Russ Feingold’s position that Osama bin Laden should be sentenced to life in prison if captured instead of executed, Priebus made a jaw dropping Freudian slip.
Priebus “accidentally” called for “Obama’s” execution, three whole times, when he should have said Osama. What conservative wouldn’t confuse the world’s most infamous terrorist with the United States President? Check it out
For those who would defend Priebus by claiming it was just a gaffe, I would like to defer to Rience’s own words from this same interview below:
“Now, some people would just say that maybe he just used the wrong word, and it was just a gaffe, from a normally smooth skilled politician. Well if that’s the case, then it’s a pretty major misstep this close to the election…”
And who calls bin Laden by his first name?
