Did Seattle Dems show their true colors?

From the Seattle Times...

The state Democratic Party is catching heat for posting an item on its Web site that parodies the popular Christian fish symbol commonly seen on the back of cars.

The item — a magnetic version of the fish, emblazoned with flames and the word "Hypocrite" alongside a cross — appeared last week on the Democrats' Web site. It was displayed along with other political-message magnets, bumper stickers and buttons that the party sells....

"The moment I became aware of it, I insisted it be taken down," [State Democratic Party Chairman Paul] Berendt said Tuesday. "I'm sorry if anyone was offended. It's embarrassing."...

The fish magnet is copyrighted by a Mount Vernon company called Reefer Magnets. The company mostly sells magnets with pro-marijuana messages such as "Hemp is Patriotic" and "Jesus is coming, roll another joint."

Two questions then: Did the person who put it on the site get fired, and what is the Washington State Democrat party doing selling things for a pro-marijuana company?
