Take the shine right off your shoes

Same ol’ GOP:

[T]he party’s main problem, dozens of Republican National Committee members argued in interviews over three days this week, is who delivers its message and how, not the message itself. Overwhelmingly they insisted that substantive policy changes aren’t the answer to last year’s losses.

Moderation, at least at this stage, is no virtue at the RNC.

[….]

“We don’t need a new pair of shoes; we just need to shine our shoes,” said West Virginia national committeewoman Melody Potter.

I agree with Atrios that the big question is whether they’ll moderate on immigration, and that it’s not clear that they will:

Opposition to this stuff (immigration reform) is in part racism, but it’s also based on the general belief in wingnuttia that the blahs and the brahs, even the illegal brahs, have access to some secret super generous welfare system that white people can’t get access to. As Craig T. Nelson said, “I have been on food stamps and welfare no one helped me out.”

The nut of this is the following: comprehensive immigration reform hurts Republicans in the short term (by increasing the number of Latino voters) but helps in the longterm (by blunting the Democratic advantage among Latino voters). If by “short term”, one means the 2014 election, then ramping ALL kinds of winger craziness (other than comments about rape and witches and the like) may help Republicans since it amps up turn-out among the old and crazy, and midterm elections are all about turn-out…but likewise, all this craziness turns off the next generation of voters.

    I don’t think that the base wants to moderate on immigration. Just watch, the crazy will be turned up to eleven. When Congress takes up immigration reform. The health care debate will seem like a picnic. I think the leadership and the moneyed interests are for it and the base is against it. We will see who comes out ahead.

    I just realized it’s projection. They’re used to being such dumbasses that they can convince themselves into believing anything or even two contradictory ideas at once. So they don’t understand why they can’t win any other policy fight by marketing things just the right way without changing any underlying facts or ideas.

    If they’re counting on turnout for the 2014 midterms, they might be in for a little surprise. I suspect that the Democrats may have learned a few lessons from 2010. It certainly can’t have been lost on Obama just how much harder his his life became with a Republican House of Representatives. I think that’s one reason he hasn’t disbanded his vote getting operation. Since he also is not going to be distracted by by trying to implement his health care plan and deal with the biggest economic downturn since the Great Depression, he will also have a lot more time and energy to put in to 2014.

    LOL, that sounds just like some of my pappy’s wingnut axioms over the years. That says fuck it, full steam ahead and let the bullshit flow a little more better.

    The GOP is the party of status quo, in this case, both the virus and the patient.

    edit – reminded me of a true story. My pappy, a real estate broker had this huge poster nailed to his office wall of Ronald Reagan. One day I quipped, ‘you think that sucker is big enough, pops” He looked at me like he was looking at Lenin, and just said the poster wasn’t big enough, the goddam wall was too small.

    2016 speculation continues. Here’s a fluff piece on Martin O’Malley’s abs:

    During the election the only thing more sought after than Mitt Romney’s tax returns was a picture of Paul Ryan’s abs. Neither appeared. But forget him and look at the rippled chest of Martin O’Malley, the owner of the best abs in Washington. Buzzfeed’s Ruby Cramer snapped this picture of the Maryland Governor participating in the annual Special Olympics Polar Bear dip. And, seriously, look at that man’s chest. He’s the one in the middle with the six pack and the chest of a professional wrestler.

    O’Malley is 50-years-old. He is eight years older than Paul Ryan. What are they putting in the water in Maryland?

    Baud says:

    I wonder what will be the “Obamacare” of 2014 that the GOP uses to drive turnout. The problem with using immigration is that there are a lot of people on the other side who could also be riled up by the hate talk. Guns makes more sense logically, but will that be enough? Climate change and (no offense) gays are relatively boring issues, so I don’t think those will be winners.

    katie5 says:

    But Republicans are very good at framing and messaging. What really sunk them in 2012 and allowed the Claire McCaskill’s of the world to get elected was their sheer brazen “We can say what we really feel.” If they polish the shoes then they can slip by the notice of the low information voter.

    Higgs Boson's Mate says:

    Two days ago, Newt Gingrich and Bobby Jindal both called for yet another re-branding of the Republican party. The party heeded the clarion call of those two geniuses:

    “We want to build a massive party that’s exciting, that smiles, has a good message across America, and that’s what you’re going to see,” Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus told reporters at a news conference on Friday shortly after he was re-elected to another two year term.

    This should be at least as successful as their last few efforts at re-branding.

    Roger Moore says:

    it’s also based on the general belief in wingnuttia that the blahs and the brahs, even the illegal brahs, have access to some secret super generous welfare system that white people can’t get access to.

    I don’t know if it’s that they’re given access to a different system or just that they’re all a bunch of cheats who are bilking the system in the way that honest but poor white folks would never dream of doing. Remember that the story of the Cadillac driving welfare mom wasn’t that she was taking advantage of some other system, just that she was registered under multiple names and with fake children.

    Burnspbesq says:

    Part of the reason why it’s hard to have a conversation with a wing nut is that there is no agreement on what words mean.

    The Gingrich quote in the Politico article is a perfect example. When Gingrich talks about the need for Obama to “compromise on our terms,” he is in effect re-defining the word “compromise” to mean “capitulate.” And if the semantic trick works, then Obama is painted into a corner, because it becomes unreasonable for him to do anything other than capitulate.

    @Cacti: I read articles during the campaign that said 2012 was the last time the GOP could plausibly win on white votes alone. They failed. Now demographics have made that impossible. And that means the Southern Strategy is officially dead and buried, at least on a national level. It can still work in certain states, yes, but you can’t get elected President anymore using it.

    But the GOP still doesn’t get how to appeal to minorities. They still seem to think the “look at how many tokens we have in office” approach will get them support, when it hasn’t worked since, well, ever. Tim Scott in the Senate will not get them black votes. Nor will waving Mark Rubio in front of the cameras get them Hispanic votes. Those voters want substance, not cheap media tricks.

    That would be a disaster from the solid spot left for correct priorities under Barack Obama. I don’t know if Hillary would honor that new and productive reality, or she would give in to old alliances and hucksterism.

    Governor Walker is bragging about bringing 125 jobs to northern Wisconsin (Curt Manufacturing, which is near Eau Claire). But it was Governor Doyle who gave the grants in December 2010 and the funds were made possible through Obama’s stimulus. Governor Walker has no shame.

    I see it is unanimous here that GOP has no future since Romney screwed the pooch but I’m not so cock sure. Remember that Romney kept kicking that sleeping bear until it finally woke up and then the Teahadiban idjits kept baiting the creature until it ate their lunch.
    Newt and the Boyz might be right that they can pull off another con so long as nobody puts the wind up at an inconvienient time. The GOPers know how to grift so long as they can keep the true believers off the stage and the Mitt Show drove home how important that effort will be.
    Don’t sell The Boyz short. They’re nothing if not persistant and they got the bucks ta-boot. And of course never forget that the American undecideds (they are always undecided too) have the long term memories of the proverbial gnat. GOTV!

    Hey, Republican dumbasses: it’s not the packaging. It’s the product. Your product sucks. It sucks. It fucking sucks. Your product fucking sucks.

    Doesn’t matter how you wrap it, a turd’s still a turd.

    FFS, it’s so damn simple even a gopper should be able to understand it, but they just keep flogging the packaging.

    Pivot! Pivot back to the CENTERRRRRRRR!

    It just might work if not for these pesky Internets, recording everything they say to win the primary. Durn libruls and their use of the search button!

    @Burnspbesq:

    When Gingrich talks about the need for Obama to “compromise on our terms,” he is in effect re-defining the word “compromise” to mean “capitulate.”

    To say nothing of redefining what ‘hard core left-wing’ means.

    That quote from Newtie is a perfect summation the republican world view. These are people who are incapable of functioning in a democratic society, and indeed are hostile to it.
