Sybarite: Republicans will spend 2013 trying to reach both younger and minority voters, she says, by ramping up social media efforts and recruiting new, diverse spokespeople.

Radical!



Y'know, it's kind of sad that most of them think their only problems have to do with sales pitches, with ineffective evangelism rather than with the product itself.

The GOP
The GOP's recent presidential loss will likely catalyze a reinvention, says Karen Post, author of "Brand Turnaround: How Brands Gone Bad Return to Glory"and a self-identified moderate Republican. She believes the party has suffered from a lack of diversity, narrow messaging and too little Web and social media interaction. "A political party is like any big brand," she says, using Nike as an analogy. "While Nike has its one thing people associate it with, they spend millions segmenting consumers. The GOP is not grasping that." Republicans will spend 2013 trying to reach both younger and minority voters, she says, by ramping up social media efforts and recruiting new, diverse spokespeople.


Hey, dinkholes. How about instead of using darkies and no good whippersnappers to spread your filthy lies you actually CHANGE YOUR RETARDED HATEFUL POLICIES!!!

People LIKE fiscal responsibility, providing a positive environment for families and helping businesses grow. It's the goddamned racist, sexist, money grubbing, authoritarian assholishness they don't like!

Idiots.

The most important lesson the GOP needs to learn this year in the form of a riddle:

Do you know why some black people (and most Mainland Chinese) privately call white people "ghosts"?

BECAUSE THEY CAN SEE RIGHT THROUGH YOU, CRACKER JACKASS!


Serious. Try to entertain this new idea:  black and other "minority" voters are rational and can figure out which side their bread is buttered on. And even if they don't want the butter, they can tell their friends from their enemies nine times out of ten.

To win over any significant number of these people you will have to change your fundamental values and beliefs, as well as policies, bringing many of them into the eighteenth century, if not the twentieth. It is not enough to think up new lies, empty promises, and BS with which to befuddle or bedazzle the voters.

Also, it would help to drop the conspiratorial thinking whereby the only thing that prevents you from appealing to the majority of moderates, liberals, and non-voters is the Devil and All His Minions. People are capable of rudimentary thought and economic analysis.

THEY'RE NOT THAT INTO YOU.

BREAKING NEWS: if you talk to the people in charge of a failing brand, they'll all tell you that the brand is due for a comeback any day now.

Goddamn, the current state of journalism is depressing. Twenty years ago if you'd sent a puff piece like this to your editor he'd have strangled you with a typewriter ribbon.

Don't underestimate them. They've managed to convince poor people they're nothing but millionaires in temporarily embarrassed circumstances. Maybe they can do the same thing for minorities. "You're not black, you're just temporarily melanin-enhanced. Just keep oppressing yourself until you turn white, and then think how good you'll have it."

detroitdoesntsuckthatbad: Everyone is a democrat until they start contributing to a 401k.


Funny, I was a Republican until shortly after I started contributing to my 401k. I switched to "decline to state" shortly after they "released the Palin."

Anything I say would be redundant to every point made here. But... I haven't been this discouraged about how ineffective government in general has become since the Vietnam War. It even sucks here in sunny California. I think our legislators' popularity ranks in the 20% range. They should be part-time for that score, or lower their self-given raises and goodies. Or treat them like children with a long time-out until they help the people and cut all the partisan crap. And NOPE to all FARK's points. This might be a good time to point out that, despite "prophecy", we all woke up on 12-21-12 with the same shiat.

THIS. It's amusing to hear Republican columnists and politicians say "we need to reach out to young/female/minority/etc. voters" with one mouth while whispering the same old dog whistles with the other. The cognitive dissonance is stunning.

phaselous: "Y'know, it's kind of sad that most of them think their only problems have to do with sales pitches, with ineffective evangelism rather than with the product itself."

They came pretty goddamm close to defeating an historic, popular and charismatic President with a farking Martian, based almost entirely on the effectiveness of their marketing.

The majority of their rabid base identifies as and votes Republican despite the product itself being detrimental to their own best interests, based almost entirely on the effectiveness of their marketing.

They kinda have a point.
