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.”


In the biggest departure from its previous electoral strategy, Mr. Priebus said, the Republican Party is “even considering trying to appeal to women.”


“I read recently that women are as much as fifty-one per cent of the population,” he said. “That number sounded crazy high to me, but maybe one of our new math Republicans can check on it for us.”

3. It's getting too, too funny.

But what is the script? All comers are welcome just don't demand we do anything about things like climate change.

Gee, why don't they discuss having liberals and socialists join. You know, as non-voting members.

5. I Was Waiting to Read the Disclaimer that this was Satire

Did this idiot really admit the typical repub doesn't believe in science and math. True, but weird that he admits it. Who would want to join the party that really doesn't believe these things but will "tolerate" members who do?
