Republicans Throw in its Lot with the Taliban? UPDATED

Ben Smith at Politico has the reaction from the DNC to Michael Steele's statement that Obama's winning the Nobel Prize was unfortunate.
"The Republican Party has thrown in its lot with the terrorists - the Taliban and Hamas this morning - in criticizing the President for receiving the Nobel Peace prize," DNC communications director Brad Woodhouse told POLITICO. "Republicans cheered when America failed to land the Olympics and now they are criticizing the President of the United States for receiving the Nobel Peace prize - an award he did not seek but that is nonetheless an honor in which every American can take great pride - unless of course you are the Republican Party.

"The 2009 version of the Republican Party has no boundaries, has no shame and has proved that they will put politics above patriotism at every turn. It's no wonder only 20 percent of Americans admit to being Republicans anymore - it's an embarrassing label to claim," Woodhouse said.
I have MSNBC tuned in and even a few of their reporters are claiming it does a disservice to others who have won in the past.  It's an absurd award that diminishes the value of the award.  Any opportunity to rip into Republicans for having the same reaction that many in the world  are having.  Look at the results of an MSNBC poll:

Lumping the Republicans in with the Taliban doesn't quite fit with the latest White House spin on the Taliban either.   Insanity reigns supreme it seems. 

Michelle Malkin links the amazing bumper sticker at College Politico that says it all
