GOP Rebranding Update: Wolverine Edition
Well, it’s my time of the month to take a reading on how the Grand Old Party is doing with its rebranding efforts. They’ve been at it for a little over a year now so I don’t think it unreasonable to expect some quantifiable progress.
Last month we saw a Lady Republican, of all things, delivering the Republican response to the President’s annual State of the Union address. It was a very nice roundup of all the very nice plans that the GOP has to make America wonderful again, if we all vote for them. The Lady Republican didn’t go into detail [Libruls might steal their ideas] but asked us to take it on faith—vote first, find out later.
One big plus was that the Lady Republican turned out to be a natural at “controlling the message.” She didn’t say anything stupid, obnoxious or hateful the whole time she was on-air. She didn’t actually say anything smart, attractive or inclusive, either, but I still think the GOP gets to count the speech as a great leap forward given recent past performances. Now the Lady Republican can go concentrate on her ethics investigation just like one of the guys.
Moving right along, in this mid-term year, recent developments in Michigan further confirm my belief that Republicans are training a laser-like focus on women, promoting more female participation and visibility at all party levels to attract more female
The lady pictured above, in native dress, is a perfect example. Mary Helen Sears has devoted a large chunk of her time and energies to the Michigan Republican Party—MIGOP—and, having served as a loyal foot-soldier all up through the state-level ranks, she is now poised to become Michigan’s new national committeewoman to the RNC. If elected next weekend by a 113-member committee, Ms Sears would take her place, alongside Dave Agema, should he continue to stand tall against his party’s frantic efforts to persuade him to resign. Together, they would represent Michiganders input to crafting the national Republican platform.
[This might not strictly count as female outreach because Michigan has their own DOMA-like thing about delegates to the national convention being “one man and one woman” but not everyone will know that and Mary Helen promises to be, shall we say, unabashedly outspoken.]
I direct your attention to Exhibit A, a post that Ms Sears penned last April for a county-level Republican party website that provides some insight into her vision for the future of the party.
She calls it, appropriately enough, End of the GOP?:
We find ourselves at a precipice, wide and gaping, its darkness, seemingly never-ending. We have a choice to make. Do we follow the Truth of the Living God, who’s principles and teachings are the foundation of this country or do we follow the dictates of a depraved society and fall headlong, off the cliff, into the abyss below? For too long the GOP has misinterpreted the big tent idea of Ronald Regan. Raising the flaps higher and higher in an effort to retain power, not realizing by doing so they were destroying the very fabric the tent was created out of.
A tent by its very nature is inclusive and exclusive. There are things the tent owner will allow in and others he will fight to the death to keep out.
See where we’re heading, here?
Going . . . :
The fabric of that tent was built on the idea that, “All men are CREATED equal, that they are endowed by their CREATOR with certain inalienable rights…”
Where would they ever get a notion that all men are CREATED equal? You will certainly not find that in Darwin’s view of the world, which is being taught to our gullible children. His view gave rise to Hitler’s Third Reich, Mussolini’s Italy and Stalin’s Russia. No, we find this idea in the pages of the Holy Bible.
. . . .going:
Our party is suffering the cancerous effects of the Progressive school system. Liberals have long since taken over the once Christian Halls of such schools as Yale and Harvard. Even our local Universities are a breeding ground for perversions and depravities. Our children are indoctrinated by the ever droning lies of Communist Professors.
. . . GONE!
How then can we as Christians stay in a party that adopts Homosexuality into the fabric of the tent. I say we cannot. Homosexuals make up less than one percent of the total population. They must prey on our children to increase their numbers. Why then, would we, as a party, entertain this perversion? We as a party should be purging this perversion and send them to a party with a much bigger tent.
“If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.” Leviticus 20:13
If the GOP continues down this trend and stand for perversions and the daily social fad, then I must travel a more suitable road. The GOP will be truly dead and Satan will have had his day.
Yes! Purge away, Mary Helen. That’s more for us . . .
P.S. You might want to find yourself a nice gay Democrat hairdresser . . . just sayin’
