They're vertically challenged, appendage deficient, AND they vote!

Some things can't go by uncommented upon, so taking a quick break from the travelogue/food adventure of Juneau, I was reading last Sunday's Frank Rich column in the NYT about the hopeless scramble that is the Republican party message (where to be bipartisan he also had warnings about the pitfalls that could lie ahead for "that One"), and he linked to a story in The Washington Times about RNC chair Michael Steele, who said that to win back young voters who cost them states like North Carolina and Virginia, he is planning an “off the hook” public relations offensive to attract younger voters, especially blacks and Hispanics, by applying the party's principles to “urban-suburban hip-hop settings.” Steele went on...“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-suburban hip-hop settings.” Now doesn't that sound like a well thought out plan?
And showing his true compassionate conservative cred, he finished with this bit of warm-hearted humanity:
But, he elaborated with a laugh, “we need to uptick our image with everyone, including one-armed midgets.
Ah, the Grand Old Party. I'm sure that short people everywhere, even those with BOTH arms, are jumping right in line.

Yep, the Repugs are certainly a ship without a rudder right now, but I will give Steele his due for standing up to delusional Viagara and Oxycotin enthusiast Rush Limbaugh, and calling him out. Rush pushed back, and it will be most instructive to see who blinks first. But you just gotta love the infighting-- the party of disciplined message is shredding itself apart.
