OK, I have my laughter under control finally. Today SE Cupp suggested that Rs can rebrand

by exploiting their compassion for people in poverty rather than focusing specifically on becoming more acceptable to people of color. She seriously tries to align the Rs with Cornell West and Tavis Smiley and their work on poverty issues. The younger Rs are just as clueless as the older ones. Both still think that shiny wrapping paper can make a dogpile acceptable as a gift.

1. It may also help if they didn't call women who want birth control "lazy and stupid" and

minorities who voted for Obama "racists". They desperately want the benefits of a diverse voting bloc but they're too stupid to realize their party is filled with Ted Nugent & Wayne LaPierre wannabe's.

7. Don't forget "sluts."

You use a pill to prevent unwanted pregnancy, you're a slut.

(Note: Pill use is just fine and dandy for certain cigar-chomping rightwing radio show "hosts" who use Viagara when they go to the Dominican Republic to rape young boys or girls.)

2. Specifically how, Sippy Cupp? By telling them to borrow money from their parents? That was tried.

Along with many other impossibilities for the poor.

Results: Congratulations President Obama on your second win.

3. Rs are obsessed with marketing.

Think tanks solve problems.

14. Their marketing worked very well for them for 40+ years...

We should never ignore the power of marketing propaganda.

15. Indeed, we shouldn't. Nor should we become "obsessed."

They really think the solution to every problem is in the wording.

16. I've often thought we would be

well served by doing our own 'marketing' While the republicans reduce everything to a sound bite, Dems engorge everything to a book.

4. Wait, I wasn't watching the Cycle -- so please help me.

Did she really say that the R's could align with Smiley and West? That is positively delusional. Perhaps she just likes that West called Obama a war criminal -- and even then that makes no sense -- the R's LOVE drones, don't they?

Smiley and West have NOTHING in common with the Republicans -- with the exception, IMO -- of a hatred of Obama. They have vastly different reasons for the dislike.

She's really off the hook. This is really strange.

What did the rest of the panel say? is there video of this?

6. This was in the little editorial piece at the end of the program

so no one really commented. Martin Bashir, in the center of the four for the transition to his program, had a bemused look on his face.

I've said before that Cupp is a mess in the way a trainwreck is a mess.

9. Ah... ok -- that makes sense.

I am still LMAO at the suggestion that the R's could align themselves with Smiley and West.

She's really not that bright. She really kinda not smart.

5. These girls don't really want their repugs to change...

They just want them to win. A suggestion is hardly a command...is this person, whoever,
afraid to demand change?!!!!

8. If by rebrand she means completely change she might have a point there.

If she just means putting perfume on a pile of poo, then she is hilariously wrong.

10. If rebrand means

Going from dumb to dumber, then yes they can rebrand, and many of them already have gone the extra mile when it comes to being even dumber than last years bunch! I often think that the tea bag mentality is to become more extreme and radical year by year, and since the crazier you act the more publicity you seem to get, they keep on outdoing themselves in order to appeal to their brain dead tea party base.

13. Their COMPASSION? Compassion for people in poverty??????????

WHAT compassion? They wouldn't know how compassion feels if it kicked them to the ground, rolled 'em over on their stomachs, and gave 'em an enema!
