When John McCain tried to subvert the Obama camp’s momentum by picking a female running mate, a few people huffed about the gimmickry involved in the decision. Obviously, choosing Palin was a fatal flaw in the long term.
The Republican Party apparently hasn’t learned from this mistake. In case you were like a good bit of the rest of the country and decided to ignore the Grand Ol’ Party, you missed the fact that they picked an African-American Chairman. No, this decision has nothing to do with Obama. That’s crazy talk.
When I saw the Good ol’ Boy Michael Steele take over the
slave house reins, I didn’t really think too much of it. The party is panicking and barring a major economic breakdown or a Lewinsky, the Democrats will be in control for the next eight years. It’s kind of like Kanye ignoring 50’s baiting in late 2007. Yeezy won where it counted so why pay attention to the gimmicks?
Maybe sensing the disinterest from the general public, Steele and the RNC have decided to launch a full-on attack on my intelligence:
“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.” – Michael Steele to the Washington Times.
He also added that the Republican public relations is going to be “off the hook.”

Who the fuck is writing this marketing scheme, the same guys who came up with the McDonald’s McNuggets commercial?
Let me get serious for a moment and educate these little bumblefucks. For the last two years or so since Obama started really blazing his campaign trail, we as African-Americans tried our best to assure the rest of the world that we were not voting for any Black man as president; we were voting for a good candidate that was also Black. Of course, the GOP doesn’t agree. Apparently, Blacks and Hispanics are of one monolithic mind that aimlessly follows the words “Hip,” “Word Up” and “true dat” all the way to the voting booth. Word is, Steele is thinking about employing a “Raise The Roof” policy of ethnic endearment to really regain control of Washington.
This is actually a good thing. For some reason, I’ve been dying to call Republicans racist these last few years, but I haven’t really had a concrete example of unified ignorance and malice from the party.
But now I can say without a shadow of a doubt: Republicans, this new plan of throwing a Black man and outdated jive my way in order to garner my vote is fucking racist.
Thank you, jive turkeys.
