her son created Conservapedia
they are so far from reality they had to make their own fantasy dictionary to explain it
It's really weird how the GOP seems to work. Right now, even the most creationist, racist, hate-the-poor wingut will usually follow some kind of thread like this:
The GOP needs to reach out to more people.
The GOP alienates minorities, the poor, and concentrates on social issues of diminishing value when larger issues are more important to the electorate.
The GOP should put forward policies addressing minorities, poverty, and employment.
Non-whites are the cause of minorities, poverty, and are stealing jobs.
Where'd everyone go? I was about to talk about how gays and women are wrecking everything else.

oh yeah this has been a weird talking point/tactic?/extremely thinly veiled rascism from the crazy right since after the election. If you are lucky or unfortunate enough to have AFR talk in your city all the host have made this point. i believe bryan fischer went as far as to call hispanics socialists and accuse them of purposefully trying to set up a communist dictatorship that favors them. It's like they're running out of foot to shoot
Thinly-veiled racism has been a major part of the right wing for a very long time. It's finally starting to turn around and bite them in their short-sighted asses, but it can't be stopped because there's still too much money in it for some people.

Please, GOP, continue to ignore minorities! I found the hollow-eyed shock you experienced during your public ass-kicking in the last round of elections exquisitely delicious, and I yearn for another taste of your despair.

For a while I was really hoping the GOP would slide back into reality and start participating in the process again, but more and more as they continue to find new ways to alienate the majority and double down on their sexist, racist, jingoistic philosophy it seems inevitable they will end up going the way of the Federalists and the Whigs
My major problem with Republicans is that their monied ideologues (like the Koch brothers) can still buy all of the whacko policies they want.
Yum, more Koch Industries Formaldehyde in the environment, please!

The really pathetic thing is, plenty of Latinos are sympathetic to Republican causes. But when you openly insult them, have an enshrined policy of racism against them in your party platform, and straight up say "Latino immigrants shouldn't be allowed to vote because they'll vote Democrat," do you really fucking think you're going to win them over?
The GOP could have locked up the fastest-growing group of the coming century, and instead it's gone out of its way to show them nothing but hostility, all to shore up the votes of a bunch of xenophobic old white men who had who had zero chance of straying to the other side (and who will be mostly dead within three presidential cycles anyway.) This may well go down as the great political blunder of the our time.
I don't think anything will top 2000
I will say that the intractability of white Republicans seems to be a blind spot for both parties. The GOP behave as if they WON'T vote for them if they do a little outreach and make their policy points a tad less draconian, and the Dems somehow think that if they give a little, Republicans might compromise with them on a few bills here and there.
I take back my previous statement.

Never burst the bubble.

I'm fine with this. I hope the Republicans listen to this wise old lady so they can secure a landslide whites-only victory in 2016!
Post 2016 election update: they did exactly that!
