The GOP Forgot To Download Its Young Leaders!!

by Juli Weiner


In a way, this actually somehow seems promising. Oh but before you go, Michael Steele has a question!

(SPOILER ALERT IT’S “WHAT UP?”)

No mistake. Young people want nothing to do with vampires, except for the movie versions.

One of the GOP “Young Leaders” I’m look forward to see in campaign party mode.

GOP Assembly candidate sells sex toys for women

This year’s Most Interesting Job for an Assembly Candidate Award goes to District 5 Republican Stepfanie Velez-Gentry, who runs a business specializing in… well, what amounts to naughty Tupper Ware parties. Velez-Gentry, 29, who’s running against South Jersey power broker George Norcross’s brother, Donald Norcross, runs Nookie Parties LLC, which organizes “adult romance parties for women & couples.” (Edge, PolitickerNJ)

They were going to put in Aaron Shock (the hot one), but after 2010 he’s just going to be a personal trainer.

Chain Tattoo October 13, 2009 at 10:53 am

I remember 404 Error — one of the great Republican leaders of years gone by. He had the spine to say “what you seek cannot be found.” Never bothered with opinion polls, couldn’t care less what pages the whiny liberal elite wanted to load, always ready to tell the straight, unvarnished truth: “There’s nothing for you here, now go away and cut taxes!” What a man. The party sure could use another like him.

The Toot October 13, 2009 at 10:54 am

I notice that a lot of the GOP heroes are of a certain, um, hue, as if party realignments never happened.

WHY DO THEY REFUSE TO HONOR TRUE GOP HEROES LIKE STROM THURMOND, JESSE HELMS, AND ROBERT BORK?

/sorry, low on the snark today, blame these bastards

The Little Rock October 13, 2009 at 10:55 am

No, no, no…not an 404 error. The website was moved months ago.

to be fair, the site is beta, aw screw it, they just don’t have anyone.

Lazy Media October 13, 2009 at 11:05 am

In case you’re wondering who that old dude is standing in as the O, that’s Leonidas C. Dyer, an 11-term Republican Congressman (1911-33) best known for introducing a (failed) federal anti-lynching law (it foundered on a Dixiecratic Senatorial filibuster). Here’s the real reason he’s so inspiring to today’s GOP, though: “Dyer ran unsuccessfully for reelection in 1932, 1934 and 1936.”

teebob2000 October 13, 2009 at 11:05 am

Yep, something’s definitely fucked up here. I got a picture of big black lady from aCORN!!!!11 as the “O” in “GOP” when I went there. Really!

Yaybuls October 13, 2009 at 11:08 am

I’m a Republican because…

…the Know-Nothings and Dixiecrats kicked me out.

Formerly Preferred October 13, 2009 at 11:08 am

[re=433020]The Toot[/re]: Yeah, I noticed that, too. There’s something remarkably odious about the current GOP claiming people like Pinchback as a “hero;” as if the current GOP would actually have supported Reconstruction leaders in their fight against the Klan and the White League.

http://www.gop.com/index.php/learn/heroes/

Does this strategy of claiming ownership of past Republican heroes (some of whom were legitimately heroic) backfire? Does it remind people of just how upside down the modern Republican party is compared to the party that had that name in 1870? Probably not.

Somehow, though, I am comforted by the fact that G.W. Bush and P.B.S. Pinchback will never, ever be mentioned together in another sentence again, after this one.

TVarmy October 13, 2009 at 11:09 am

Notice the Blingee American flag at the bottom? I think they’re trying to make a Wonkett parody site.

Republican hero #4 (50% as heroic as Reagan according to rankings) – Octavius Catto, murdered by Democrats.

From the Reagan entry: “Our country has to decide,” said RONALDUS MAGNUS, “whether we believe in our capacity for self-government or whether to abandon the American Revolution and confess that a little intellectual elite in a far-distant capital can plan our lives better than we can plan them ourselves.” (emphasis mine)

Ronaldus Magnus?

Holy fuck, it’s a parody site!

norbizness October 13, 2009 at 11:25 am

GOP Heroes? I thought maybe it would be a CGI Strom Thurmond with power bands and a robot dog sidekick.

I like the term “Reaganus Maximus” or “Ronaldus Prime” better.

[re=433057]norbizness[/re]: you’ll note that ALL OF THEM ARE DEAD and Reagan is the only relatively recent one.
Where are Kenneth Starr and Newt Gingrich?

Formerly Preferred October 13, 2009 at 11:37 am

More to the point, where is Don Draper? Or Roger Sterling? I mean, they went ahead and cribbed the aesthetic (http://www.gop.com/images/hotSpot/GOP_baselineads4-01.jpg), and it’s undeniable that Draper et al. are Republicans. Draper is probably the most promising leader in the GOP right now.

PabaBritannica October 13, 2009 at 11:39 am

Yes, Edward Brooke, the great Massachusetts Senator who boned Barbara Walters and was kept off the VP ticket in 1976 by…Jesse Helms.

Which one of these men do conservatives admire more these days?

PabaBritannica October 13, 2009 at 11:49 am

They should put up a poll and have it list choices for greatest GOP hero and just put Jesse Helms and then everyone else on that list except Reagan. That would learn them.

Ok, they fixed the 404 issue….but there’s no actually people on the page….just a plea to become a leader.

Is it just me, or does that young rebublican leader girl look like a horny slut? Because I just wanted to tell Michael Steele that’s probably a better approach than the dog.

Oh! Faces! I get it. More than one. They keep changing. Cool. But this one still looks like a horny slut. I tell you. The GOP is onto something here.

[re=433023]Sussemilch[/re]: She seems nice enough for a professional dildo salesman. Still it kinda bothers me that all these barely-making-it ‘entrepreneurs’ and Amway suckers are pimping for GOP because they think they are going to be wealthy someday.

Same thing with all the small business people in my family. Last election season, I can’t remember how many times I had to ask, “Really? You make over $250,000 a year?” The answer, of course, was ‘No, but…’
