BolloxReader: Klingon?


If I had to label the GOP anything, it'd be Ferengi.

They are clueless when it comes to, well, everything. But in this case I mean how to get votes.

1,054 followers. Looks like the GOP has a lot of work to do. Fortunately, there is cheap and highly available labor all around if you know where to look.

They should hire Miguel Bloombito to do their Tweets.

In and of it self, it doesn't. However, it does make for a good bumper sticker or tweet.

You know... it's really not surprising that the GOP has embraced twitter so veraciously. For a party that communicates through soundbites instead of nuanced policy positions, it seems a natural fit.

It's complicated, but I guess it somehow involves involves either "investor confidence" or reducing the job creator's uncertainty. You know, one of those easily quantifiable things.

We know it won't.  They know it won't.  But through a combination of obstructionism and the absolutely remorseless "spendfest for Republican loyalty" that was the Bush administration, they know that a balanced budget and appreciable deficit reduction are an impossible task.  Plus, it's the kind of talking point that makes mouth-breathers feel smart.

flucto: All Latinos only speak Spanish? Who knew?


If they launched GOPmandarin, I'd expect the tweets to be translated to mandarin, Not literal rebroadcasts of their normal feed.

Except the account isn't named GOPLatino or GOPHispanic - it's GOPespanol. Espanol means Spanish, as in the language, not the nationality or ethnic heritage.

It's bilingual, seems reasonable.

the tweets are still dumb as shiat, but that's a different issue.

They tried that one first, but it turned out to be already in use by a Honduran guy who takes pictures of all the places he pees.  They then tried GOPbrownguy, but Michelle Bachmann was afraid teh Mooslims would take it over.

You have to laugh at the GOP's notion that they can get blacks and latinos to vote for their anti-minority policies if only they say some magic words.

Yes...but the Twitter name is GOPespanol not GOPLatino. They would've gotten away with it if it was GOPLatino but when you call it GOPespanol, you better damn well be sure that it's in Spanish. For godsakes, these aren't even Retweets!

Add this to the ever growing list of GOP Marketing Fails.

And it's kind of funny that they'd have any tweets in Spanish, given their fetish for "English only" laws.
