The Hip-Hop GOP?



The Washington Times reports on the bold new ideas of RNC Chairman Michael Steele, who happens to be Black, corrupt and (apparently) cRaZy.
Newly elected Republican National Committee Chairman Michael S. Steele plans an “off the hook” public relations offensive to attract younger voters, especially blacks and Hispanics, by applying the party’s principles to “urban-suburban hip-hop settings.”

… “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.”


A "hip-hop" GOP?

Right. Go with that. Wonderful idea. Deep thinking and quality leadership there!

And what will Michael Steele's "hip-hop" GOP be all about?

Who knows?!! All we know for sure is that Steele personally supports a ban on "assault" weapons. As he told The Washington Post just two years ago:

"You draw the line. I mean, what do you need an assault weapon for?"



Me? Not a thing! But what's the definition of an assault rifle again? I keep forgetting ...

And what was the National Rifle Association's response to Michael Steel's "let's ban assault rifles" rhetoric?

Simple: they spent about $4,000 in support of his bid for Governor.

Principled.

Not.


No wonder the GOP and the NRA are both considereed three-letter jokes.

And they dig themselves into a deeper grave.

At this rate the GOP is going to loose more ground in the next elections.

As a Marylander, I'm glad Steele no longer "represents" this citizen.

I can't wait for the GOP to "serve" the Democrats. Should be quite the dance-off!
