Breaking up is fun to do

The Republican National Committee has a new video called “The Breakup,” in which a disappointed woman “breaks up” with a cardboard cutout of Barack Obama, after finding their relationship a disappointment:

It’s not quite funny enough to make a big deal about, but the pinched-nerve reaction of liberal website Talking Points Memo is freaking hilarious:

Republicans debuted a new ad Thursday in which a frustrated former Obama supporter expresses her disappointment with the president. The only problem: The woman in the video is actually an RNC staffer.

The new ad features Republican National Committee Director of Hispanic Outreach Bettina Inclan, who in the ad purports to be an average woman voter who supported Obama in 2008. She describes her disillusionment with the president in the ad as a romantic relationship gone awry.

This isn’t like the phony “Republican Women Against Romney” ad that Democrats pushed out a while ago, in which left-wing activist concern trolls claimed to be lifelong Republicans who just couldn’t handle the severe conservatism of Mitt Romney.  Inclan is clearly an actress playing a role, and absolutely no effort to claim otherwise is made or implied.  The fact that she’s saying silly things to a cardboard cutout seems rather significant as well.

But thank heavens Scooby and the gang were on the case, to solve this baffling mystery!  Consider yourself busted, Bettina Inclan… if that’s your real name.
