Jon Favreau, Obama speechwriter

Classy guy that Jon Favreau, newly appointed director of speech writing for Obama. The following picture of Favreau groping Hillary and his fellow “Obama Staff” buddy, seemingly giddy giving “Hillary” some beer, surfaced briefly on his Facebook. As Obama’s main speechwriter, does Favreau think posting this picture on Facebook will somehow go unnoticed? Yeah, riiiiight.

Feast your eyes on the “Grope and Change“: 

Jon Favreau, Loser

Jerks. 

How long do you think it’ll be before the “immensely talented” wordsmith is checking the Classifieds? Any guesses? Answer: He gets a pardon! At least that is the Washington Post’s position. Moral equivalency makes all things justifiable.

Favreau is not the first campaign aide whose online presence has proved awkward. Last March, John McCain aide Soren Dayton forwarded an anti-Obama YouTube video to his private Twitter feed linking Obama with the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, leading to his suspension from the campaign. And in 2007, two bloggers hired by former North Carolina senator John Edwards stepped down after blog posts they had written before he hired them became a subject of controversy.

Imagine the crime of posting an anti-Obama link to *gasp* Obama and Rev. Wright! From a McCain staffer no less!!! That’s another story.
