Who Runs The NRCC Website?

This is seriously pathetic - The National Republican Congressional Committee's website which sports an angry Nancy Pelosi photo on their home page wants to "Take Back The Majority!"

As you click around and look at outdated talking points, like the Congressional Budget Office report that poo-poos the Recovery Bill currently being debated, even though it's been announced by the CBO that the report in question doesn't exist, you'll eventually come across this on their "Issues Page":

Thanks to Republican economic policies, the U.S. economy is robust and job creation is strong.

Republican tax cuts are creating jobs and continuing to strengthen the economy, yet there is still more to do so that every American who wants a job can find one.
Seriously? These jamokes are asking for donations on this website and they can't bother to update their webpages? Well, let me correct myself. As soon as the NRCC realized their, for lack of a better word I'll call it a "gaffe," and found out everyone else knew about it, they removed this statement from their Economy section under the Issues Page. Actually, they removed EVERYTHING from their Issues Page. That was their update. I suppose they're completely happy and don't have any issues. But if you use their Search function and type in "Economy," it'll show up as the fifth choice and TA-DA! There it is! Here's a screen capture (in case they try removing it again):

This party is in complete disarray. What else would you call it when Eric Cantor is the Number Two man for the GOP in the House of Representatives? Can anyone in the Republican Party, for once, think of something that would actually help the economy, or the mortgage crisis, or the thinned military situation, anything, without using the words "tax cuts"? Can they come up with anything? The answer is "No."

According to Greg Sargent, NRCC spokesman Ken Spain issued a response to the intertube laughter when clicking on their site:

“The site is currently under construction. We are looking forward to relaunching the site and fostering a discussion on how Nancy Pelosi and her Democratic colleagues’ proposal to spend their way out of this recession is absurd at best and financially ruinous at worst.”
Their answer to the Recovery Bill is not to come up with ideas other than "tax cuts," because that's worked so well these past eight years, but to issue a negative statement criticizing Pelosi and the "New New Deal" that the Congress is still working on and trying to include the GOP at the grown up's table in the process.

Oh, Republicans, is there nothing you can't screw up?
