Citrate1007: They attract too many racist supporters from the South so a few tolken minorities will never out weigh their skewed policies.

Gerrymander the Shire!

I remember one of my female friends complaining about how guys treat women like vending machines that they put kindness quarters into until sex comes out.

That's kind of what the GOP does with minorities. They don't respect, value, or actually address any non-white ethnicity as genuine equals... hell, most of the time they want nothing to do with them. They just want votes, and the new strategy seems to be "what buttons do we gotta push to get the minority vending machine to vote for us?"

So even when they reach out it still carries the veneer of being elitist and condescending. Like Colbert's Black Friend.

Heh... The GOP has really lost the plot after losing to Obama twice.

"It's not our backwards ,regressive, bigoted policies and core beliefs that are losing us elections! It's that we don't have blacks and Hispanics spouting it... We just need to wrap our bullshiat up in a prettier package."

It's pretty clear how the GOP feels about these demographics and it's blatantly obvious what this "new push" is... Window dressing.
