Sources within the Republican Party confirm that the Republican National Committee, aided with funds provided by Rush Limbaugh and Fox News, has purchased gadfly political news web site Capitol Hill Blue and will turn the site into a propaganda arm of the GOP.
"Frankly, we just got tired of getting it up the butt from the curmudgeon who runs the site," says a source within the RNC.
Capitol Hill Blue founder and publisher Doug Thompson, reached at his mountaintop compound in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Southwestern Virginia, confirmed the sale.
"Screw it," Thompson said. "I sold out and took the money."
