The Minority Outreach forum at CPAC was standing room only...

To be followed by walking out of the door only:

Crickets chirp as tumbleweeds roll through — and somewhere, the long, lonesome howl of a wolf is heard. That is one ghost town of a panel.

“CPAC organized a panel on minority outreach – an ongoing problem for the Republican Party and its base – and few thought the subject was worth their time,” explains Steve Benen. “…This is no way for a movement or a party to deal with a demographic problem that’s only going to get worse for the right.”

That picture is a Kirlian photo of the racist soul of the GOP. No one showed up, because no one cares. And no one cares because they’re all certain that minorities are mostly welfare queens and food stamp shoppers, Mitt Romney’s 47% makers-not-takers, and the fewer there are at the polls, the better. If there was a panel on voter ID (and there might be, I didn’t check) it’d be busting at the seams.

The base isn’t interested in voter outreach, because they want to keep minorities away from the polls. And if that means the impending demographic doom of the Republican Party, then no one deserves that doom more. If they only want white voters, then they’re only going to get white voters.

That’s not going to work out well for them.

2. "The base isn’t interested in voter outreach"

The Republican party has become the party of racists and they are openly proud of it.

3. If I recall in 2012 or 2013

They had some sort of minority outreach forum and one of the guys on the panel was an outright white supremacist who was defending slavery.

You just can't make this shit up.

7. You are correct. That shit was priceless.

At least the have finally just accepted it, an empty room is far less dangerous than ppl who can verbalize their thoughts.

4. "Minority outreach".. what pathetic joke. The gop is too busy trying to cast themselves

as poor little rich people in the minority that need another tax break for billionaires. Too busy giving themselves raises to give American Workers a Raise in Minimum Wage.

5. I think CPAC defines a "minority"

as someone who thinks the President was born in Hawaii.
