The Republican makeover

There are times when you hate the Republican party, scientists call those "most times", but then there are times when you are glad for their very existence. Such as the times they say stuff like this with a straight face:
"We need messengers to really capture that region - young, Hispanic, black, a cross section ... We want to convey that the modern-day GOP looks like the conservative party that stands on principles. But we want to apply them to urban-surburban hip-hop settings."
Steele recently said that President Obama's stimulus was just "bling bling."
As to applying GOP principles to "hip-hop settings", what else can you do? Your members are rich, flaunt wealth, horde guns, and are always in trouble with the law. That's a rhyming couplet away from being T.I. I know it's tough being unliked and unhip and reduced to trumpeting uniform opposition as an achievement. But for the love of God don't go down this path:

No one wins when political parties try to "rap" with "the kids".
