This is a day when Republicans need cheering up, so let’s note the fact that we have an excellent RNC Chairman in Reince Priebus. He is smart, aggressive and effective–not only that, he reads InstaPundit! Told by a reporter that Joe Biden is planning on visiting Tampa early next week, Priebus responded beautifully:
“I think it’s pretty common among parties to play with each other’s conventions, and we’ll have a pretty big presence in Charlotte as well,” Priebus said. “The nice thing about going first is that whatever they do to us, we can do ten times over to them.”
Does that mean that Romney may counter-program the Democratic convention in Charlotte next month? Priebus replied “You never know where we are going to be.”
“I’m a big believer in: if they punch us, we put on the brass knuckles and punch back,” he added.
That is music to my ears!
