Jive Turkey<br />
AwardWhile many of us are on the same page this Thanksgiving – thankful for the specter of a more thoughtful and unifying presence in the White House come January 2009 – others continue to spew their hate-filled bile solely for the purpose of trying to divide and conquer.

With this in mind, and in the spirit of the upcoming holiday, we’d like to present our First Annual Thanksgiving Jive Turkey Award.

For our first award we could have picked Sarah Palin as she continues to telegraph her almost zen-like tone-deaf political aspirations, or treasury secretary Henry Paulson for “assuring” the stability of our financial institutions just a few days before Citigroup stocks dropped another 26%. But we thought this year we’d stay a bit closer to home.

And so, without further ado, let’s introduce our winner. Ladies and gentlemen, the First Annual Liberadio(!) Thanksgiving Jive Turkey Award goes to…Tennessee Republican Party Communications Director Bill Hobbs!

Insert golf clap here

Bill’s many achievements include:

1) Twisting the Words of Others to Fit His Agenda. At this, Bill is a master. Take for instance his presentation of an LA Times article which lists Obama’s many achievements during his 4-year career as a full-time lawyer. Mr. Hobbs’ take on the article? “LA Times: Obama was a Lazy Lawyer.”

2) Not Using a Dictionary. Because if he did, we’re sure he’d know the definition of “lie” (as in “to lie”). A lie is not when someone takes a statement like “Republicans may not be able to stop this bailout,” and infers that the issuer of said statement, as a Republican, is against the bailout. A lie is, well, pretty much anything Bill Hobbs has ever written about President-elect Barack Obama.

3) Spewing Hate-Filled, Divisive, and Thinly-veiled Bile for the Sole Purpose of Winning. We’re sure that when Bill is writing about this Senator or that presidential candidate he sometimes forgets he’s a human being. What else could explain his labeling President-elect Obama as “America’s First Pro-Death President?” You stay classy, Bill.

Some are calling for the ouster of Hobbs, but if he wasn’t given the boot after crafting his now infamous “Anti-Semites for Obama” press release, which was roundly criticized by several of Tennessee’s high-ranking members of the GOP, we’re pretty sure he’s not going anywhere. Which is unfortunate because Hobbs is the worst kind of partisan hack – the intellectually dishonest AND really, really creepy kind.

(Congratulatory emails can be sent to Bill’s boss, Robin Smith, Chairperson of the Tennessee Republican Party at chairman@tngop.org)
