GOP Chair Michael Steele announces that, as part of the party’s PR overhaul they’ll be undertaking, and I quote, an “off the hook” PR offensive. While it’s universally understood that the republicans need to attract younger and minority voters soon or perish, these kinds of attempts to get more “edgy” in order to attract younger generations rarely seem to go well. I’m suddenly picturing Mitch McConnell and John Boehner attempting to rap about supply side economics and pro-life policies, and I find myself filled with a deep and abiding horror.
