There’s a lot of love in politics these days — and we aren’t just talking about ex-Rep. Chris Lee’s (R-N.Y.) efforts on Craigslist. The Republican National Committee is out with a set of politically themed Valentine’s Day cards featuring its Democratic opponents spreading a few tongue-in-cheek political messages.
The digital cards can be e-mailed between valentines via gopvalentine.com. Our favorites include a card featuring Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) with the message, “Valentine’s Day alone is the PITS”; another with Vice President Joseph Biden happily announcing, “Happy Valentine’s Day, it’s a big deal”; and one with the “Rent Is Too Damn High” party member Jimmy McMillan, who says, “I’d mail you this Valentine, but the postage is TOO DAMN HIGH.”
Following the speeches from elected officials, the crowd stands at long tables as they dig into BBQ, brunswick stew, cadillac rice at the Law Enforcement Cookout at Wayne Dasher's pond house in Glennville, Ga., on Thursday, April 17, 2014.
