Less compassion, more exclusion

South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford thinks one of the big problems for the GOP is that it was trying to be too inclusive:

First, let’s go back to the principle of saying what you mean and meaning what you say. A political party is much like a brand, and brands thrive or wither based on how consistently they deliver on what they promise. Along those same lines, it’s important for brands to stick to their knitting. If John Deere’s tractor sales are declining, they don’t say, “Tell you what, let’s make cars and airplanes, too.” Instead, they focus on producing better tractors.

I make that point because there’s a real temptation in Republican circles right now to try and be all things to all people. We tried that already — it was called “compassionate conservatism,” and it got us nowhere.

Less big tent, more pup tent.  Less compassion, more indifference. I like it. Sounds like a recipe for success. Watching these disempowered dimwits thrash around in the coming months and years and (hopefully) decades looking for “the answer” as their base dwindles away will be a great source of entertainment for me.

Translation: Let’s call a spade a spade, a n!gger a n!gger, a woman a girl, a homosexual a filthy, godforsaken pervert and a Jewish person a money grubbing heathen!

I like this too. I like it a lot. I’d go so far as to say it gives me a funny feeling in my pants.

Yeah! Fucking people over and screaming about family values no longer works. Like it used to. I mean, it couldn’t have anything to do with the fact that Compassionate Conservatism made a private family tragedy into a three ring nightmare and then ate cake while New Orleans turned into hell on earth. Nope, it’s just that compassion is 4 loozrs.

Please God and Baby Jesus. All I want for Christmas is for these fucktards to make “Shut up and listen to your masters!” their battle cry for the next four years or until they’re extinct. Amen.

What Hunger Tallest Palin said.

He-he!

Take General Electric, for example - they stuck to refrigerators, light bulbs and television sets.  They didn’t try to ‘diversify’ with military products, medical diagnostic equipment, extended service warranties or… oh.  OK, that’s a bad analogy. 

But I think the Republican Party will really make some gains with their newly rediscovered “Fuck you, less fortunate person, I got mine!” philosophy and marketing initiative.

Especially combined with their “whites only need apply (or at least only POC’s willing to compromise all their integrity)” mantra too.  (Thanks to Hunger Tallest for elaborating on this theme.  And don’t forget - any hispanic person is a fuckin’ illegal.  English was good enough for Jesus and it’s good enough for us goddammit!!!)

That’s it Sanford, oh wise one.  If your buggy whips aren’t selling, don’t give in to popular demand and start manufacturing automobiles.  Make fancier buggy whips!

Make fancier buggy whips!

Er, no. ReThuglicans would open buggy whip factories in countries where people are paid less than a dollar an hour and use much cheaper products to save money. Next they’d screech that people who didn’t buy ReThuglican brand buggy whips are terrist coddling Bible burners who want to show porno movies to first graders. Finally they’d demand a big wad of cash when their profits dried up.

Needless to say the ReThuglican buggy whips would be made from materials that cause cancer, gout, hair loss and impotence.

But, Jeebus, the profit margin!
