GOP Gives Up on Changing Its Image, Seeks to Change Democrats' Image Instead, 'Cause That'll Work, Right?
If a certain resolution is passed next week, the Democratic Party could be getting its name changed to the Democratic Socialist Party.
I'm not making this up.
Seems like an odd decesion for the Democrats to make, huh? Well, they didn't make it. This was all the Republicans idea…
A member of the Republican National Committee told me Tuesday that when the RNC meets in an extraordinary special session next week, it will approve a resolution rebranding Democrats as the "Democrat Socialist Party."
When I asked if such a resolution would force RNC Chairman Michael Steele to use that label when talking about Democrats in all his speeches and press releases, the RNC member replied: "Who cares?"
Who cares, indeed? I mean, when you've got an ace idea like that up your sleeve, why waste breath or cerebral energy if this will actually come to anything other than achieving the almost inconceivable task of making your party look even more ridiculous than it already does?
My only real problem with this is that Democratic Socialist Party doesn't quite go far enough. I mean, why stop there when you could re-brand them as the Democratic Jerkwad Party? Or the Superstupid Dumbass Democratic Party of Smell? Or the Mexican Party?
I think that history shows that last one would prove quite unpopular with the GOP's base.
