McConnell Warns GOP They Will Soon Be All-White Party Of Losers

by Sara K. Smith

Family values voters.Gaah, Mitch McConnell, what a buzzkill! The Senate Minority Leader told members of the Republican National Committee that they’re in danger of becoming “a minority party,” by which he means, “a party with no minorities in it.” It is a well-known fact that the only people who voted for John McCain in the presidential race were Southern whites who wore their best overhauls on election day to vote against a Muslin in the White House (it’s not the Black House, people!). This won’t do for a party of the Future.

“Too often we’ve let others define us,” McConnell said. “And the image they’ve painted isn’t very pretty. Ask most people what Republicans think about immigrants, and they’ll say we fear them. Ask most people what we think about the environment, and they’ll say we don’t care about it. Ask most people what we think about the family, and they’ll tell you we don’t — until about a month before Election Day.”

Mitch McConnell, who is this turncoat? He’s probably already on a Republican hit list for his suspicious case of gayface, but this ought to really put him over the edge.

Sounds more like a rallying cry than a warning.

Min January 30, 2009 at 10:42 am

I hate it when the aliens leave pod people behind.

RASDC84 January 30, 2009 at 10:42 am

“overhauls” = “overalls”

El Pinche January 30, 2009 at 10:42 am

McConnell went further to say that by 2015 the entire GOP will be able to fit on his massive turkey chin.

4tehlulz January 30, 2009 at 10:44 am

Playing the nativist card, pissing on every environmental initiative that matters, and cease caring about people when they exit the womb lead people to these conclusions? Whocoodanode?

I’m sure Anchorbaby Malkin and Red State will set Mitch straight soon (i.e., cure him of his addiction to homococks).

shortsshortsshorts January 30, 2009 at 10:44 am

Sweet GAAAH…. these fuckers are already energizing the base and acting like Toris. This is horrible. And it will work, because we are dumb. The end.

chascates January 30, 2009 at 10:44 am

Too late. They already are an all-white party of losers.

snideinplainsight January 30, 2009 at 10:44 am

“Wear your best overhauls on election day” could be the new slogan for Repub farmers and bankers everywhere!

Fear of a Black Reagan January 30, 2009 at 10:45 am

Mitch McConnell clearly hates The Troops!

AfghanVet January 30, 2009 at 10:45 am

Unfortunately, they haven’t “got it” yet. They think their problems are that they didn’t BELIEVE in their IDEOLOGICAL approach ENOUGH! They BELIEVE that they CARE for the environment, minorities, foreign brown people, the middle class and the like. Problem is their IDEOLOGY prescribes solutions for those things that are simply bankrupt of any capability to actually do something positive. Their ideology is made up of a bunch of ultra right wing BELIEFS in taxation, market economics, religion, and the like that was patched together in order to create an electorate that would vote their BELIEFS and be capable of winning elections.

When they finally won and put their rediculous ideologies to the test they ALL FAILED!!!

So, changing their marketing plan without changing the product will result in more FAILURE. They need to toss the ideologues and wing-nuts (especially the religious ignorati) and think about SOLUTIONS not IDEOLOGICAL ASSUMPTIONS.

Paterlanger January 30, 2009 at 10:46 am

[re=232628]magic titty[/re]: Right! Just substitute “most Republicans” wherever he says “most people” and the responses still make sense. “Ask most Republicans what they think about the future and they’ll say ‘fuck it’.” Not very pretty at all.

dennymcden January 30, 2009 at 10:46 am

It never occurred to me that McConnell had Gayface, but you’re totally right, SKS. This poses the question ‘Elaine Chao: Worst or Best Beard Ever?’

madtowngooner January 30, 2009 at 10:46 am

This would mean something if McConnell himself wasn’t such a douche nozzle who fits the traits he just described.

AngryBlakGuy January 30, 2009 at 10:47 am

…he is probably getting death threats as we speak.

shanemacgowan January 30, 2009 at 10:49 am

It seems as if McConnell is telling his fellow travelers that if they are to become relevent, they must repudiate Mich McConnell and everything he stands for.

Neon Trotsky January 30, 2009 at 10:49 am

This is clearly just a problem of PR!

Serolf Divad January 30, 2009 at 10:51 am

You know when you go to work and around 10:30 am you realize you forgot to remove your buttplug from the night before? And you know how that buttplug just sits there annoying your for the rest of the work day until you get home and have a chance to pull it out and put it back in its felt-lined, intricately carved, mohagony case?

Well that’s what the GOP is in danger of becoming.

Servo January 30, 2009 at 10:52 am

Don’t be so modest, Mitch. You can say “toothless incestuous hillbillies”. We already know.

DoctorCulturae January 30, 2009 at 10:52 am

Mickey McC is a lame zombie, sputtering his invective and realizing it is, what? 1982? Sorry Mick, Raygunism is gonersville.

Pleeeeze to continue as the poster boy of the Repubs! Every time I see him I think he’s the perfect emblem of what the Righty-Whitey will be for years to come: prunish, prudish, and grumbling.

Colander January 30, 2009 at 10:52 am

Yeah, so Sarah Palin won’t be running for preznit, maybe ever. The stars just aligned and I saw the future (via that photograph). The New Republican SithLord will be a pretend centrist who will fool dummies into thinking he’s a cool, white alternative to BHO (I have white friends who are just waiting to fall for gimmick like this. And I live in New Jersey).

takes12no1 January 30, 2009 at 10:56 am

[re=232631]RASDC84[/re]: good catch. SKS obviously has never been below the Mason-Dixon line before…but she “has” pegged us pretty well.

Servo January 30, 2009 at 10:57 am

“toothless, incestuous, and racist hillbillies”. Fixed.

gambypants January 30, 2009 at 10:59 am

Mitch, too bad most Republicans do agree with what most people say about them.

ManchuCandidate January 30, 2009 at 11:00 am

What Mitch means is more stuff like “Barack the Magic Negro.”

I suggest to the GOP that they start doing Minstrel Shows in Compton/Harlem, Jerry Lewis style Chinese impersonations in Chinatowns, Senor Wences in East LA/South Tejas, Paul Lynde impersonations on Castro, etc.

It probably might not do them any good, but the resulting beatings will make those folks feel better.

TGY January 30, 2009 at 11:02 am

Ah, no, an improvement in self-definition would be “We’re a party of the winning-challenged”.

Cape Clod January 30, 2009 at 11:02 am

Not wearing their hoods to cross burnings would be a start.

hobospacejungle January 30, 2009 at 11:03 am

Gayface. Hmmm. I always thought his face looked like it was melting off the bones. In fact I’m pretty sure his face is made of wax and re-touched daily. Somebody hold a torch too close to him and his humanoid endoskeleton will be revealed. Who knew SkyNet would pick the wrong party to support?

AngryBlakGuy January 30, 2009 at 11:03 am

…I’m gonna call it now! The Republican party is DEAD!

Instead of taking the ass-whooping they took in the last 2 elections as a sign to change direction, they instead interpreted as “pull hard right”! People want health care, people want to be able retire, people want bank regulation, people want to be able to afford college, people want clean air/water! These are the thing that the Republicans have failed to realize. Instead their remedy for everything are TAX-CUTS, Religion and De-regulation! Finally the decades of appealing to the absolutely positively lowest denominator has caught up them. People realize that they have been sold a dream and they are pissed! And now they don’t even have the balls to stand up to Rush Limbaugh, the embodiment of all that has rotted their party from within. There is no way this party can survive without jettisoning one of its three main constituents; Fiscals, Fundies or Racist!

freakishlystrong January 30, 2009 at 11:03 am

Umm…Mitch? When your spokesfolks are the likes of Rushbo, Hannity and Coulter, they kinda live up to the ole’ sterotype, eh?

Naked Bunny with a Whip January 30, 2009 at 11:04 am

“Too often we’ve let others define us, and the image they’ve painted isn’t very pretty.”

“Curse those people for making us look bad with their ‘facts’ and ‘logic’! We must lie harder!”

qwerty42 January 30, 2009 at 11:04 am

Sara said: “overhauls” uh, not to be picky, but aren’t they “overalls”?

However, I believe the problem facing the GOP is simply that they are the stupid party and they can’t get away from it.

Mahousu January 30, 2009 at 11:07 am

Well, the wingnuts are already going after McConnell. And their weapon of choice? TruckNutz!

Obviously, they took those suggestions on seriously.

OReillysVibrator January 30, 2009 at 11:08 am

Haha how far down the bench will they have to go to find a non-white? Piyush “Call me Bobby or a Republican will shoot me” Jindal? And come on, no way will an Indian attract Latino or Black voters.

Neon Trotsky January 30, 2009 at 11:10 am

[re=232665]Cape Clod[/re]: But if they don’t wear their hoods to the ol’ cross burnings, then they can’t claim that every single attendee is actually Robert Byrd and thus racism is purely a Democratic Party problem…

Servo January 30, 2009 at 11:11 am

Careful, Mitch. You speak treason. You may find yourself shackeled and hauled to Gitmo to be tea-bagged and chili-dogged by Mann Coulter.

OffTheRecord January 30, 2009 at 11:12 am

Ugh. Mitch McConnell is just a loathsome human being. What kind of losers elected him?

Oh wait. That was me. Sorry about that.

Rush January 30, 2009 at 11:14 am

Where is Charlton Heston when you really need him?

Lord Licorice January 30, 2009 at 11:18 am

McConnell totes has gayface, I have been saying this for years! His entire head/face reminds me of a bonnet less quaker matron. He also has a glass jaw/no chin in dire need of punching.

ella January 30, 2009 at 11:18 am

How long till he goes on Rush to beg forgiveness for being truthy?

Miller January 30, 2009 at 11:20 am

A party of no minorities…soon? I think that ship sailed. What, do they think Michael Steele and Ken Blackwell are a couple million black guys or something? I guess it’s an easy mistake to make.

stink, but January 30, 2009 at 11:24 am

They will SOON be a party of all-white losers? Uhmn, I’m pretty sure that happened back during the Nixon administration…

WagTehGod January 30, 2009 at 11:27 am

I won’t believe he’s truly slammed the GOP until Conservapedia lists him as a Senator who’d be replaced by a Republican should he be killed.

Special Agent Jack Mehoff January 30, 2009 at 11:33 am

These are the same overall wearing idiots that heve decided selling their schools is a good way to fight a budget deficit.

Slowest newsday ever.

Sounds like it’s time for Rush to take him back out the woodshed and teach him to get back in line with the Rushlican Party!

Colander January 30, 2009 at 11:42 am

[re=232690]magic titty[/re]: Yeah, pretty much everything on Google News has already been reported here today. Jessica Simpson is fat now. So ALMOST everything.

Woodwards Friend January 30, 2009 at 11:43 am

Mitch McConnell knows he’s from Kentucky right? His electorate is under-educated, bigoted white people. If the GOP “expands the base” no one will vote for Mitch.

totoro January 30, 2009 at 11:47 am

The solution is to make Michael Steele their full-time mascot. And his understudy from Ohio with the matching handkerchief who can resist being gay through force of will. Also important to continue to demand tax cuts for corporations below their %11 effective rate. Oh, and the humiliation of gay people, because that protects families. Let me go put together a slide-deck to help them out.

Dean Booth January 30, 2009 at 11:50 am

If McConnell wants to remain a millionaire, he must tell us what the Republican Party stands for. He used his first lifeline to call Rush. Here, he uses his second lifeline to look at the polls. If he uses his third lifeline, the responses “competent” and “relevant” will be eliminated as possible answers.

cynbot January 30, 2009 at 11:52 am

[re=232643]dennymcden[/re]: Uhhh, I think Elaine Chao is a tranny.

Mustang January 30, 2009 at 12:00 pm

I don’t want to harsh a nice high, but does everyone remember when the Democrat party was declared terminal just a few short years ago? Don’t be too quick to gloat. We must stay ever vigilant in keeping it real.

a-petit dejeuner January 30, 2009 at 12:00 pm

McC’s prolly gonna be on Rush Limbo’s show tomorrow apologizing for his out of the line treacherous remarks.

Then he and Gingrey are gonna start an underground club where all they do is cry over what could have been.

hockeymom January 30, 2009 at 12:13 pm

But that IS the republican party. And that’s who they want to be….I get emails from my repub friends all the time, warning about the foriegns, the gays, the aborted, the dark-skinned, etc, etc. They don’t WANT to be anything else.
So maybe Mitch should join some other party, because the repubs are happy being the party of fear, ignorance and hate.

american mutt January 30, 2009 at 12:18 pm

Ask most people what Republicans think about teh gays, and they’ll say we prefer twinks.

The Republican Party. A Play in Five Acts

Act I. The party loses another election.

Act II. A closed-door meeting afterwards. White men gather and bemoan. Finally, someone pulls is face out of his hands, wipes away the tears and exclaims that–he’s got it!–the party needs to be even crazier; exclude more people, start more wars, become more Christ-centered, cut taxes and reduce oversight. Chorus chants, we agree!

Act III. The three remaining moderates are expelled.

Act IV. A telegenic idiot appears to lead the ticket.

Act V. (Repeat Act I.)

plowman January 30, 2009 at 12:41 pm

“…Southern whites who wore their best overhauls on election day…”

What the fuck are “overhauls”? it’s OVERALLS you bong-stunned libtard dumb-asses…

Haha, McConnell. Not “fear”. “Hate”. Republicans “hate” immigrants.

[re=232673]OReillysVibrator[/re]: You mean all brown people aren’t the same race and culture, like all Black people and all white people are? And Hispanics won’t automatically vote for Jindal because he’s got roughly the same amount of melanin in his skin. Come on!

An Italian friend who’s lived here many years said during the primaries, “Latinos will never vote for Obama. They don’t like Blacks!” The outcome was somewhat different.

“Overhauls” is a time honored Southern colloquial pronunciation of “overalls,” so calm down, libtards.

Ask most people what Republicans think about immigrants, and they’ll say we fear them. Ask most people what we think about the environment, and they’ll say we don’t care about it. Ask most people what we think about the family, and they’ll tell you we don’t — until about a month before Election Day.”

JDHART February 1, 2009 at 7:32 am

I’m surprised they noticed that: a) the Republican party has little to offer minorities and 2) the members of the GOP will continue to die before new members will replace them. Not looking good for 2012.
