  •  Note to GOP - this isn't helping (4+ / 0-)

    The GOP is just having a heck of a time figuring out this diversity business, aren’t they? They manage to find black candidates that make black people less likely to vote for them.

    By analogy, here is a personal anecdote: Remember way back to 2008 when Obama won the Dem primary over Clinton and Sarah Palin was McCain’s answer to the ‘woman vote’? That’s what led my mother, who hadn’t voted for a Democrat since 1976, to vote for Barack Obama. My mother took Palin as a personal insult. Put an egregiously unqualified vapid bimbo on the ticket just for demographic appeal and women who have actually accomplished something in their lives take that as an affront. Likewise, it’s a pretty good indicator that the guy on the top of the ticket is a misogynistic jackass.
