The problem is that they're worried about the appearance of diversity instead of actual diversity.

Not a new issue. I remember Daily Show coverage of the election 8 years ago, and the RNC was well aware of this. There were like half a dozen black people in an audience of thousands, so guess who the cameras kept seeking out?

But they won that election. The modern GOP has never had a very diverse base, but it hasn't needed it. The reason they are blaming it for their loss now is that the alternative would be to accept that a lot of Americans are just plain fed up with their crap.

St_Francis_P: Republicans are in full panic mode about being the party of old, white, straight, conservative men

Now hold on a minute; that's just not true. They're the party of old, white, straight, angry conservative men.


No they aren't, they are only straight in public. Get one into an airport restroom and you'll have more of a gay old time than Fred and Barney.

Paul Baumer: Is there anything that reveals the amorality of today's conservative more than this? They don't give a shiat about minorities and women - they give a shiat about not getting elected, which is why this is going to fail. Contrary to their own propaganda, women and teh brouns aren't that stupid.


Can't be emphasized enough. They don't view it as an issue of morals or ethics, but simply one of marketing. They're still going to be led by the same old, white, straight, conservative men - they're just going to ensure that they install enough minorities and women in inconsequential, but visible, positions to allow them to exploit those positions as a marketing ploy.

"Look, we're new and improved - heck, we got us a black guy in the Senate and a broad on a House committee!"

It really doesn't get more scumbaggy than watching the GOP figure out how to hide their principles, so that they can convince future generations to vote for them.

the party's "diversifying voices," including Rubio, Jindal and Jeb Bush.

I see their problem. They think "diversity" means "yet another Bush."

FTA: There will be no openly gay Republicans in Congress is (sic) 2013.

I got $5 that says one will come out or be forced out.

It's enough to make you wonder about the intelligence of the white male. It's almost as if they can't compete without a head start.

trivial use of my dark powers: Personally, if I'd screwed over a bunch of pissed off billionaires I'd try to keep my head down for a while.


This is because you are fully human and therefore possess a sense of shame.

Well...the minorities and whites who act like them apparently aren't capable of understanding just how great the GOP really is. Maybe they're too busy getting free stuff and mooching slut pills. Maybe they're to busy having anchor babies to self deport or perhaps they're out buying cadillacs with the free money they stole from us GOP types who actually have to work for a living ....

Uh what was I saying?... Oh right, we need to figure out why we aren't getting our message out. I'm sure if they really heard us they'd choose GOP every time!

well they keep trying so hard to present themselves as diverse, hell the whole RNC was a giant diversity soap opera of bullshiat.
but they still only trust the old white angry guys with the wheel.
'we are done with you until the next photo op diversity hires, dont say affirmative action never helped you, now go back to the shadows and let the big boys run this'
