    No, it has nothing to do with Obama being a Dem. For every stupid, crass, or offensive thing done or said by a Dem, there is something equally stupid, crass, or offensive that was said or done by a Rep. This thread proves it: Walker did it, Republicans counter by pointing out that the Obama camp did the same thing. That's the usual counter for the "someone from your party is an idiot!", it's the "Hey, someone from your party did it too!"

    Neither party has a corner on crass, stupid, offensive, or idiotic.

    Pretty much. If you're asking people to donate to a cause they don't believe in, you're putting them in the position of either doing that or not giving you a gift for your special day. That's quite "odious." But like you, I'm not going to argue that one's worse than other. They're both as bad for different reasons.
