Note to media yakkers: The Rethug party canNOT be re-made to appeal to minorities

The great Lesson of the election results according to the yakkers is that the Rethugs have to reach out to minorities and become inclusive. This is a variant on the Third Way imbeciles.

What is the point of having two parties that are "no difference"?!1 The Rethug Party of today exists for the purpose of representing Old, White Males, that is all.

If it were miraculously to include Choice, secularism, equal rights for all, etc., the racists and fundies would simply eject themselves to reassemble into another party for themselves.



The only minorities the Rethugs appeal to are new immigrants who already were wingnuts and/or oligarchic in their original countries (like Cuba) and/or what their latest buzzword is, "aspirational," meaning they are starved for material and social "success" in the Robber Baron sense.

2. Yep it's pretty much a lost case for them to appeal to minorities.

Most of us are low-income and understand that trickle-down only benefits people who are already successful. But if they don't want to ditch trickle-down, I think the only way they can peel off some minority voters is to adopt a stance in their platform about legalizing drugs like Bill Maher said last night. The Drug War has been an issue that neither side has really wanted to address, and it's up for grabs. The GOP claims to be about protecting people's personal freedom and lowering the deficit. The Drug War has cost the country millions, and a disproportionate number of minorities have been locked up for drugs that are safer than alcohol and tobacco. If Republicans were smart, they'd roll with it.

3. Don't wake them. Let them sleep. They really think minorities who vote are fools.

4. Agree 100%

Their base consists of quite a few racists who aren't interested in being inclusive. They're so out of touch with minorities that they wouldn't even know where to begin to attract us. Tuesday should be their wakeup call that they're in serious trouble as a national party. Our party is the party of inclusion.
