CHAIRMAN NOT AMUSED

A gauzy video tribute to former Sen. Ted Kennedy included some vintage footage of the Massachusetts Democrat debating Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney during their 1994 Senate race.

Republicans didn't find it very funny.

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus took to Twitter just minutes after the video ended to rip Democrats for including the clip, which includes a couple of classic Kennedy lines from the race with Romney, including, "I am pro-choice. Mitt Romney is multiple choice."

"Classless Dems use tribute video of deceased Ted Kennedy to attack Mitt Romney," Preibus tweeted.
