Rand Paul: GOP Brand ‘Sucks’

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul was speaking at a Republican field office in Michigan in a predominately African-American neighborhood. The weakness, Paul added, is particularly serious when it comes to appealing to black voters. “Remember Domino’s Pizza? They admitted, ‘Hey, our pizza crust sucks.’ The Republican Party brand sucks and so people don’t want to be [...]

Or maybe not. At the very least, the latest ad from the Republican National Committee is designed to scare the pants off nearsighted, mouth-breathing ignoramuses who are utterly clueless about what’s happening in the world and whether President Obama is legitimately to blame for all of it. And just in time for Halloween. The ad [...]

Taegan Goddard reveals the secret place Republicans go to learn how to deal with the media. The school is a reaction to the high-profile crises the GOP has inflicted upon itself in recent years—from Todd Akin’s “legitimate rape” comment to Christine O’Donnell’s “I am not a witch” ad—and party officials are determined not to repeat [...]

As part of our ongoing exposé of the “Republicans Are People Too” ad’s comical use of photos featuring people who aren’t actually identifiable as Republicans, we came across a very interesting source for the ad’s gay Republicans, and if you guess “stock photo,” you’d be wrong. On Tuesday, we highlighted the ad’s “Republicans Are Black” [...]

A group of professional pranksters is at it again in America’s Dairyland. A group once known as “Operation Burn Notice,” headed by such folks as automobile repair store owner Matt Leppard, unemployed live-at-home Chris Heather, Arizona agitator in absentia Robin Causey and many of the same names we came to love during the 2011 effort [...]

Susie Madrak picks up on Thomas Frank’s Salon piece that properly rips the Democratic Party. Shorter version: they don’t stand for anything. …data-minded commentator like Nate Cohn is able to look out over the blasted moonscape of Appalachia and conclude that a party of the left has nothing it might conceivably offer the people there. [...]

With much fanfare after the 2012 debacle, the Republican party wandered into the wilderness to lick their wounds and contemplated what had gone wrong. The result of that uncharacteristic contemplation was an effort led by RNC Chairman Reince Priebus (double points on Scrabble for that name!) to rebrand the GOP. A new and improved, lemon-scented [...]

This report was commissioned by two Republican groups, including one backed by Karl Rove. Women are “barely receptive” to Republicans’ policies, and the party does “especially poorly” with women in the Northeast and Midwest, according to an internal Crossroads GPS and American Action Network report obtained by POLITICO. It was presented to a small number [...]

The Tea Party Grifters

Steve LaTourette is a former Republican Congressman from Ohio.  Today he wrote a column about the leaders of the Tea Party movement and described them as grifters. Political grifting is a lucrative business. Groups like the Club for Growth, FreedomWorks and the Tea Party Patriots are run by men and women who have made millions [...]

We Aren’t Polarized

It is an article of faith among pundits that we are a deeply polarized nation.  Matthew Dickinson explains that it simply isn’t true; it just seems that way: …most of the evidence used to support this claim does not show a process of polarization, as commonly understood. Instead, it shows a process of party sorting. [...]
