Say “conservative” not “Republican” to woo Latinos: Tea Party

AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) – Preaching a conservative message is a better way to connect with the growing U.S. Hispanic community than to mention the Republican Party by name, the nation’s first Hispanic tea party group president said at an Austin forum on Thursday. “Whenever the word ‘Republican’ is used, it…

Supporter tells Gingrich: Media ‘accurate’ to ‘kill the Republican Party’

A supporter told Newt Gingrich (R-GA) on Thursday that maybe Republicans should just skip the 2012 presidential election because the GOP candidates didn’t have the passion necessary to govern. “Do Republicans want to be president next term because right now I don’t feel that?” the man asked Gingrich during an…

Gary Johnson mulls third-party run

Disgruntled former New Mexico governor Gary Johnson says he is considering leaving the Republican slate and running as a third-party candidate in the 2012 presidential election. “I feel abandoned by the Republican Party,” Johnson, who has been left out of most of the Republican debates, told the Sante Fe New…

They’re all converts!

Before the gap between the tedious shit onscreen and my need to get actual work done before Netroots Nation, I noticed that a handful of candidates—especially Michele Bachmann—were playing the Youstabee card, i.e. I or others used to be Democrats, then we saw the light and changed sides.  To hear…

Chickens roosting

Don’t forget to give to our Bowl-A-Thon team that’s raising money for abortion access! With the shut down of Medicaid funding for abortion in D.C., the need is greater than ever. But this post has nothing to do with abortion. I just want to highlight, with amusement, Adam Serwer reporting…

How did the GOP get so radical on contraception?

When pro-choicers like myself highlight the fact that the anti-choice movement to which the Republican party is beholden is not just anti-abortion, but anti-contraception, we generally meet a sea of skepticism. “Nuh-uh,” it usually goes, “A lot of them just really believe that stuff about fetuses being people. The ones…

Lo, And The Demon Came From The Fiery Pits

The day after an incredibly corporate-friendly health care bill with few, if any protections for women’s reproductive rights barely passed the House, Nancy Pelosi is Satan, according to the Republican Party. Part of me wishes that we could pass this bill on a weekly basis, though, because the right has…

Jeb on flailing GOP: give up Reagan worship, the party has no strategy

Talk about mixed messages. Just yesterday I blogged about the drop of a new video promoting the GOP’s latest effort to rebrand its tired-*ss self, The National Council for a New America, which relied heavily on the imagery of the Reagan “Morning in America” commercials, and even included shots of…

A Plan For The Future

If I’m in charge of the non-Republican of the two major political parties, I think I have a way to completely short-circuit any Republican opposition to my plans: just mention the Fairness Doctrine. First, it proves that Rush Limbaugh actually is the effective head of the Republican Party, as any…

David Duke loses it over Michael Steele at RNC

OK. Now this is seriously funny. The BFF of Tony Perkins (of the Family Research Council), former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke, is going apesh*t over the election of Michael Steele to run the RNC. He refers to the former Maryland Lt. Gov as “Obama Junior” (if only!):…
