Michael Steele : Off the Hook Hip Hop Makeover for the G.O.P.

Michael Steele is putting the G in G.O.P.

Newly elected Republican National Committee Chairman Michael S. Steele plans an “off the hook” public relations offensive to attract younger voters, especially blacks and Hispanics, by applying the party’s principles to “urban-suburban hip-hop settings.”

Huh, you sleepy or some shit Steele? Seems like your babbling because that shit was in the gamma quadrant of understandability. I know the G.O.P. be getting their feelings hurt a few times with the rejection and clowning of their ignorance but this be out there even for these fools.

MixMaster Mike Steele has been doing a lot of outlandish shit as of late and while when he entered the game he seemed to be bringing something good to the game. At this point it feels like he is just a clown. When he came out I was checking for homie, he had some real potential now he is just acting a fool.

Ya dig?

On a more serious note.

This looks awfully ridiculous and cynical of the G.O.P to try and pull immediately after America elected Barack as President. This follows along the lines of “Let’s Get Palin As VP To Get the Hillary Vote” tactic they used last year.

How obvious and pathetic can you get?

“There was underlying concerns we had become too regionalized and the party needed to reach beyond our comfort” zones, he said, citing defeats in such states as Virginia and North Carolina. “We need messengers to really capture that region – young, Hispanic, black, a cross section … We want to convey that the modern-day GOP looks like the conservative party that stands on principles. But we want to apply them to urban-surburban hip-hop settings.”

But, he elaborated with a laugh, “we need to uptick our image with everyone, including one-armed midgets.”

Why didn’t we think about that?

There is a cultural of self-denial in the dominant culture, beginning with the corporate media which both enables and condones the gimmickry of the GOP. If the GOP is ever going to climb out of that big hole they’re in, they’re going to have to stop thinking like second graders (no offense to 2nd graders out there).

Micheal Steele wants to give them a hip-hop makeover? That’s rich. The political equivalent of turning my grandma into a pole dancer.

It is insulting for Steele to imply that young African Americans will suddenly feel they are important to the GOP just because of some tricked out advertising.

Try being relevant first, Mr. Steele.

Change the hateful and divisive GOP messages, Mr.Steele.

Address racism, sexism, homophobia, gang problems, and immigration, Mr.Steele.

Most critically, the Republican party needs to hit the streets THEMSELVES if they want to connect with disenfranchised Americans, not just toss candy from the float and wave. Some community organizing to find out what people different than you are actually thinking might do you good. And yes, the people you classify as the urban-suburban hip hip crowd are different than you.

No one is going to take any of you seriously until they see some worn old GOP habits dying….hard.

This is the first thing that came to my mind and I’m sure you peeps thought about it too. So I’ll just go ahead and add it to the diary.

Maybe some of you thought I should add some snark tags.

Sad thing is I’m dead serious here.

In the truth is stranger than fiction vibe I give you the inspiration for Michael Steele and his new marketing strategy.

    There are no Republicans from NE in the House and barely any in the Senate; Obama won handily most states that he won, and came close in some he wasn’t expected to (MT, ND and, yes, AZ).  He turned IN, NC, IA, and VA blue.  You can almost go from east coast to west coast without hitting a red state.

    Meanwhile the GOP seems to be firmly entrenched in, hmmm, the southeast and parts of the west.

    And now Mr. Steele thinks that a little “hip hop” will turn things around?  Seriously?  This from the party that thought a cd of the current POTUS being referred to as a “negro,” magic or otherwise, was appropriate?  This from the party that is against everything (or most things) that young people aren’t so much against anymore?  What are they going to do?  Rap for abstinence-only birth control, or against same-sex marriage, or against gays in th military, or for pulling families apart in the name of ending illegal immigration.  If this is their plan, color me unimpressed.

    BTW, note to Mr. Steele, it’s probably not a good idea to refer to potential constituents as “one-armed midgets.”  The appropriate term is “little people.”  Dumbass.

    Rachel’s guest right now – Mellissa Harris-Lacewell, Princeton University political sciences prof – is putting it so incredibly well right now. (that has got to make it to the Tubes – hint, Hollede!)  (sic)”The one thing that Hip-Hop is about more than anything is not pretending to be something you aren’t.”

    This all reminds me of when Brian Adams had a mosh pit built at a place where he was going to have a concert (btw, I hate Brian Adams.  What a stiff.).  Hint:  you don’t order your people to construct a mosh pit, mosh pits just happen
