It's More Than An Image Problem

It's hardly been two days since the report from the College Republican National Committee concerning the Republican party being viewed as closed-minded, racist, rigid, and old-fashioned.

First we have Senator Saxby Chambliss (R-GA) at a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on sexual assaults within the military, who had this to say:

"The young folks coming in to each of your services are anywhere from 17 to 22 or 23," he pointed out. "Gee-whiz, the hormone level created by nature sets in place the possibility for these types of things to occur. So, we've got to be very careful on our side."

Hormones make you rape. Who knew?

Next up is Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant (R) who responded to a question about how America became so mediocre in regard to educational outcomes like this:

"I think both parents started working. And the mom is in the work place."

Yep, working moms make you get bad grades.

Completing the trifecta, we have Tea Party Republican, Ken Emanuelson, with this to say about GOP voter outreach efforts in Texas.

"I’m going to be real honest with you, the Republican Party doesn’t want black people to vote if they’re going to vote 9-to-1 for Democrats.”

Republicans. Blind to their own self destruction.
