    Though “Latino Gay Contraception” does make a hell of funny tag….

    What did Jeb Bush say? Was that tasteless classless gibberish too?

    @Gypsy howell: Oh, it is a thing. It is the thing that wingnut mothers like the scare their offspring with, e.g. “If you don’t obey your father, the gay Mexican abortionist will come to get you and send you to a madrassa. And also FREEDOM.”

    You don’t want a bunch of gay anchor babies, do you?

    Since Luke’s a Junior Pumpkin, can we just refer to him as “Squash”?

    “Butternuts”. maybe?

    Lurking Canadian says:

    I think the way to read it is that “Latino”, “contraception” and “gay” started out as three elements in a comma-separated list of things Republicans should stop fighting, then the commas had to come out to meet the character limit.

    That the first Republican to try this approach will be hanged from a lamppost with a mouthful of condoms after the next Tea Party meeting is left as an exercise.

    The deserting coward and his “brain”, Rove, tried to woo latinos into the GOP.

    Undercut by the racist scum that are the Teabaggers, who hate them some brown and black people something fierce. Exhibit #1: Joe Arpaio.

  36. 36
    Baud says:

    it’s common sense

    Hence, no one in the GOP will stand up and say it.

    Grumpy Code Monkey says:

    Guys, come on. It’s not that obscure.

    He expresses it very badly (drunk, maybe?), but he’s pointing out what we’ve been saying for a while; for the GOP to continue to be relevant, it has to reach out to gays and latinos and quit fighting culture wars it lost a generation ago.

    Junior may be a nepotism hire and way out of his league most days, but even he can see that the GOP doesn’t have much of a future with the old (literally) demographic. The country is moving on; time the GOP started moving with it.

    ploeg says:

    Word salad or not, Luke is in touch with the Republican lizard brain. The demographics dictate that Republicans can’t be so bigoted anymore, therefore Jeb is your 2016 frontrunner.

    @Grumpy Code Monkey:

    OK, but the key to moving on is to nominate yet another Bush? Christ. Even if you can parse Russert’s gibberish, he’s still an idiot.

    Ash Can says:

    Separate from the laughable way he expressed this is the laughable idea itself, that any GOP leaders at all will deal with this situation either honestly or courageously. Personally, I’m looking for Eric Cantor to launch himself on a huge ego/power trip when the new congress begins its session and for the GOP to go downhill from there while John Boehner sobs about how meeeeeeen Obama is. I’m willing to admit — and I’m even hoping — that I could be wrong, but I’ll believe the GOP will sober up when I see it for myself.

    Bill in Section 147 says:

    @Baud: Leadership. I think that is the answer your looking for.

    Wolverines! Also too.

    Maybe if junior had some actual liberals or even Democrats on his show he would hear some ideas. John McCain hasn’t changed his mind so why have him on to re-affirm what he said in 2000.

    But I think he is just realizing that the party of hate and the anti-Obamas are not demographically on the right track.
    Don’t worry by December he will be back to the same format wondering why Obama and the Democrats are not giving up more to please the Republicans and bring about bi-partisanship.

    dm says:

    @gogol’s wife:
    I think he means that someone, maybe Jeb Bush, should step up and tell the Republican fruitcakes that the culture war is over, and that culture won.

    Bill in Section 147 says:

    @Lurking Canadian: I don’t think what you envision will work because the lynching is difficult when you roll on the Rascal Scooter. Also too, the tea party does not use/have/carry condoms so that is not going to happen. God gives out babies so no need to worry about the issue.

    It will be interesting to see how fear of the other can be manipulated to re-emerge as a winning strategy. Romney showed that just plain lies work for getting an additional 21% of the vote over the solid 27% Real America. So start lying sooner and get better at it will likely be the first plan. If that fails then the tide may turn to “maybe we can get our own brown spokes-model.” Of course Michael Steele didn’t exactly work out as planned.

    Bush/Rubio is the 2016 plan if 2014 nudges the House blue.

    bg says:

    Such an ignorant little twit. Deals solely in stereotypes; never done a minute of reporting. JEB pandered to conservative Cuban-Americans while gov of Fla, but I doubt his shtick will play so well with some other Latino groups who don’t care about Castro. Li’l Luke doesn’t even know that not all Latinos are alike. JEB also was extremely anti-choice. As to gays, when we had a horrible incident of a little girl who died in foster care after getting lost in the system, JEB was caught snickering over the fact that the foster mom was gay.

    I also had to read the comments to figure out what he meant. Commas are important sometimes. Even the Oxford variety. Thanks all of you being better Twitterese speakers than I am.

    Tim C says:

    I *think* what he’s trying to say is that the GOP has a major demographic issue on its hands and is really really really doomed unless they start bending on one or more socal issues. I’m not sure he’s right, let’s say they become more tolerant/accepting of homosexuality, that can work on a local level for them, but how many votes do they loose from their fundamentalist members? Probably more than they gain. Also too, twittering isn’t a very good way to communicate.

    Felonius Monk says:

    Perhaps Lunkhead Luke is speaking in code. Maybe it means he’s not going to have gay sex with a Latino without using a condom.

    The sycophant/ignoramus media, typified by Luke Russert and Chuck Todd, are the second biggest looser in yesterday’s election.
