Republicans Consider Welcoming People Who Believe in Math and Science

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Opting for a bold “big tent” strategy to rebuild the party, Reince Priebus, the chairman of the Republican National Committee, told reporters today, “We need to welcome people who believe in different things than we do, like math and science.”

After disappointing results in Tuesday’s election, Mr. Priebus said that it was time for Republicans to become “more tolerant of those with a math-and-science lifestyle.”

“Just because we don’t believe in those things doesn’t mean we can’t get along with people who do,” he said. “We want to send this message: math and science Americans are Americans, too.”

3. That'll be the day!

I think we'll have a permanent "underclass" of republicans who cannot accept the whole idea of Obama. We'll have to wait for their tribe to die out...

4. They... don't believe in math and science?

And, umm. What is a "math and science lifestyle"? Betting Neil DeGrasse Tyson would have something hilarious to say in response to this....

5. A "math and science lifestyle" is doing things like DU
