DNC executive director not only spikes football, but uses profanity

If the name Patrick Gaspard fails to ring a bell, you may want to make a note of it. Then again, considering the likelihood that it will become a conservative battle cry in efforts to repeal ObamaCare, you’re probably OK ignoring that advice.
Gaspard, for the record, is currently the Democratic National Committee’s executive director. I say currently in light of the fact that by the time you read this he will probably have undergone a status change to former DNC executive director.
Gaspard began his 15 minutes of fame earlier today when, unable to conceal his glee over the Supreme Court’s ruling on the individual mandate, he tweeted the following obscenity:
TAKE THAT MOTHER******S!!
After thirty minutes had passed, during which time Gaspard recognized the error of his ways, he tweeted again, this time posting:
I let my scotus excitement get the better of me. In all seriousness, this is an important moment in improving the lives of all Americans.
Then within minutes of that tweet, he reverted to Mr. Hyde, tweeting:
it’s constitutional. B***hes.
The Republican National Committee tweeted a response soon after, reading:
Liberals were unable to contain their own delight. One of them, blogger Joan Waslsh, tweeted:
I have to say, it may get him in trouble, but I still love@patrickgaspard’s first Tweet. It’s what Joe Biden would like to say.
If you’re looking for affirmation of how ill-advised and ugly the gesture was, there you go.
