Rebranding the GOP

It's not like Republicans really didn't get the message of the 2012 election. They do seem to understand they have an image problem because the majority of the country sees them as the party of the rich. The sudden shift in the GOP rhetoric drift is at once amusing for its lack of sincerity and irritating in its potential for succeeding with the rubes.

Of course all they did was add an extra step to their master plan:

1) Enact policies that cause enormous uptick in Americans living in poverty.
2) Make somber speeches about how sad it is there are so many Americans living in poverty and demand something be done to "increase opportunity."
3) Continue to push the same failed policies that created worst income inequality since the Gilded Age, but with new names.
4) Profit!!!!

Hell, why not? Shameless mendacity has worked for them so far. All they need is some better agitprop.

You've expressed my fear very well. To them, conservative means intransigent and that means never getting the message. It's ACORN, it's sluts looking for free birth control, it's atheists and commies and greedy freeloading immigrants and that's why they lost, not because of what they are.

Fortunately, I think the demographics are going to either dispense with them all or force them to change, but of course it's easier to do the same damn thing with new rhetoric then to actually learn. And of course the public is still gullible and Fox is still broadcasting.

I get some sense that even the gullible rubes are beginning to get that they're being snookered. Trouble being, they still hate libruls more than they hate being lied to.
