Want to pierce the veil to Republican thinking? No problem!

All you have to do is take equal parts of Willard’s recent post-mortem speech (AKA “I did SO mean what I said about the 47%”) and this gem of a quote from 2016 Presidential hopeful Bobby Jindal (R-Louisiana):

We need to continue to show how our policies help every voter out there achieve the American Dream, which is to be in the middle class, which is to be able to give their children an opportunity to be able to get a great education.
To reach American MiddleClass Nirvana, just follow the five simple steps (apologies to the returning Alan Grayson for the last one) shared below the Satanic Orange Wingding.

1.    Pick wealthy parents. Preferably white. And straight. And of opposite genders.
2.    Avoid going to war. People get shot and end up dead if they go to war.
3.    Leverage other people’s money to fuel your business career.
4.    Sell off some of your inherited stock portfolio if newlywed cashflow is sucky.
5.    Don’t get sick. Or if you get sick, die quickly.

See? Wasn’t that easy? That's how Republican "policies" can help YOU make it!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
