1. The republican party is simply changing their image in order to win national elections.....
It doesn't matter if they send the US back into rescission.
It doesn't matter if they crash the world economy.
It doesn't mater if they turn public schools into demilitarized zones.
It won't even matter if they abandon 47% of the US population.
If Frank Luntz can find a politically correct way to sell, legitimate rape, poverty, redistricting, optional wars of necessity; pay as you go fire departments and a few other things the republican owners want; all will be fine.
If they just teach Paul Ryan and Michele Bachmann to speak Spanish they will attract the Latino vote.
They are already replacing some of their threadbare talking head talent like Neal Boortz with fresh insightful people like Herman Cain.
This is all going to work out fine for them. You'll see!
