GWP-Grand White Party- Republicans Don't Represent America-They Represent Only Some Whites

Delegates cheer during the final night of the 2008 Republican ...

It's pretty sad. And it seems that the Republicans truly have been co-opted by the Religious Right.

Whites and a white protester

Republican presidential nominee John McCain waves to the crowd ...

Nope. Nobody of color in THIS pic, either

Iguess that's why they also are the party of racism, like the Representative from Georgia today who said tht Obama is *uppity*.

I prefer the party that, like Jesus, likes Red and Yellow, Black and White.

Update: Oh, I take it back - I see from Slog that Whitey has left the building.


Weirdly, suddenly, the population of the floor just changed—for the first time in four days, black folks and brown folks outnumber the white folks.

They're cleaning up the mess:

P.S. From the Root- Busted Brand

Earlier in the campaign, the Republicans made much of the idea of rebranding McCain. Fact is, it never went beyond the idea stage. Rebranding is a reframing of expectations. For two generations, black Americans have been waiting for the Republican Party to rethink its branding of them, to correct its misperceptions of black America, to not see African Americans collectively as a convenient, monolithic, election-year punching bag and boogeyman, not as the tolerated American problem.

The nomination of Barack Obama for the presidency of the United States does nothing less than reset the baseline of American possibility. From now on, whenever black and minority parents tell their kids that they could be president someday, that pledge will bear a Democratic signature. But for now, American possibility looks more like the Democrats than the Republicans.

Until the Republican Party is ready to renounce the politics of division—opening the door to the lives and views of people whose histories and ethnicities don't mesh with the traditions of modern Republicanism—the GOP brand will remain damaged goods in much of black America, damaged by the brand managers themselves.

Jefferey Toobins, made the comment about the RNC. Looking out into the audience, "I saw mostly old White Men."  When I covered the DNC I saw "diversity." Something similar to those words were spoken by Toobins, when he was reporting. The face of America. How true.
