The North Dakota Republican Party has a humorous new image on its front page today: A “Joke of the day” that just so happens to involve President Obama’s birth certificate.
The picture shows the photo of President Obama shaking hands with state dinner party-crasher Michaele Salahi. Obama is given a speech balloon in which he asks to see Salahi’s invitation. She answers: “If I can see your birth certificate!”
I asked Adam Jones, political director for the North Dakota GOP, whether it was appropriate to have a joke involving the president allegedly not being born in this country. “You said the keyword, Eric,” he replied. “It’s a joke.”
I asked again whether he thinks this is a proper thing to put on a state party’s homepage. “I think it is a joke, and that would be my only comment for you,” he said.
