GOP: The Blacks and the Midgets

Out of the mouth of RNC Chairman Michael S. Steele from Washington Times:
”There was underlying concerns we had become too regionalized and the party needed to reach beyond our comfort” zones, he said, citing defeats in such states as Virginia and North Carolina. “We need messengers to really capture that region - young, Hispanic, black, a cross section ... We want to convey that the modern-day GOP looks like the conservative party that stands on principles. But we want to apply them to urban-surburban hip-hop settings.”

But, he elaborated with a laugh, “we need to uptick our image with everyone, including one-armed midgets.”
How many times does it have to happen in order for it to become a generalized archetype? A high-ranking member of the GOP finally, reluctantly laments the lack of inclusiveness in the 99% old white guy gang and before you can even think the phrase "Well, maybe he's...," in the same breath he makes any attempt at taking such comments seriously nothing but laughable.

"Hey, how'm I supposed to know whatcha call them Munchkin people?"

What an asshat.

This is what has been wrong with the GOP, is wrong with the GOP, and will be the base reason behind them losing even more seats in 2010.

Nice to see that reality is still the realm of conservatives. Feigned outrage is one of my favorite delusional stomping rounds. I'm sure you will be experiencing real outrage when the democratic/liberal/socialist party becomes nothing but a sad footnote in history. Meantime leave reality to those who have a grasp on it. .The Silent Majority

Ah, thank you. You've made my day.

I especially enjoy people from either party that speak in terms of absolutism, using terms like "footnote in history." This is politics. Unless you're 8 years old, you should recognize it's cyclical.

I think I may just have to post on this. Thanks for the comment!
