The Republican National Committee got into the Valentine's Day spirit Tuesday with a line of teasing e-cards that were less hearts than arrows directed at Democrats.
One features a contrite former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) with the text, "If Anyone Asks, I Didn't Send You This Valentine" -- a reference to the scandal that led to his resignation last year, in which the married congressman was caught sending lewd photographs to a number of women online.
Another card mocks Rep. Dennis Kunich (D-Ohio) for his short stature, reading, "I Have A Short List Of Valentines This Year." A third takes a more aggressive hit at former New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine (D), with the text, "I Blew $1.2 Billion of Other Peoples' Money And All You Get Is This Lousy Valentine."
Other Democrats targeted include House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), and DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-Fla.)
RNC Chair Reince Priebus said that the cards, an annual GOP tradition, were meant in good fun.
But if those Valentines aren't quite to your taste, you can also send off a wonkier NPR-themed card, like one that reads, "If I told you how much I loved you, I'd violate Rule 47 CFR Part 73 of the FCC Radio Broadcast Rules." Aw.
