Yo What Up “What Up”?

by Juli Weiner

Two seconds ago this blog was called “What Up?” He is running out of Wire allusions and “the Corner” is already taken! GOP Webmaster, please add Michael Steele’s new “Change the Game” blog to “Accomplishments.” []

Somebody tell Steele that ‘beta’ isn’t urban for ‘better’. Doesn’t work that way. Coincidentally, the next release after ‘beta’ *is* actually ‘mo beta’.

Those lists of accomplishments are hilarious, given that the vast majority of them basically reiterate the same message: No, seriously, Republicans don’t really really really hate women, blacks, and other minorities. Really. For real.

How long before 4chan was winged penis(es?) flying across the GOP page and into the faces?

I doubt she’s a republican too…i haven’t seen her face during the Teabaggers events nor on the teevee during the national conventions…maybe she’s Michael’s Niece…”hey honey do your uncle a favor and I’ll get you that car you want”

Terry October 14, 2009 at 9:54 am

Behind the scenes at the GOP, the white Southerners are plotting like heck as to how to dump Steele without seeming like even bigger racists than they already appear. Or conversely, they could be letting him distract us with superficial things while they get on with the hard core business of trying to ruin the country to the benefit of the political donors and the super rich.

HandsomePete October 14, 2009 at 9:57 am

Oh, we no longer have a miniature Michael Steele greeting/dancing for us on the home page anymore. Damn!

PlanetWingnuta October 14, 2009 at 10:05 am

by the way anyone gone to the “why are you a republican” part of the site…i’m way tempted to go and write “Why am I Republican: In what other party can I: 1)Cheat on my wife with people of different genders. 2) Take bribes from insurance companies…I mean campagin contributions. 3)Say No the interests of my constituents so they’ll die early but as long as I can have their vote today. 4)Say abstentince is the way to go, but have my daughter get preggnant out of wedlock and parade her on the national stage. 5)Blast the Democrats for adultery and other moral failings and when I get caught say it’s time for forgiveness and its time move on. 6) But say that Homosexuals are the real threat to traditional marriage, meanwhile I’m ‘Hiking the Appalachian Trail’ with my very best friend and leaving my 4 sons without daddy on Father’s Day. 7)And hey there’s that great C house…and we know what the C means! Rhymes with Bunt, Wink wink nudge nudge.”

digibal235 October 14, 2009 at 10:05 am

1. The GOP faces should be more representative, i.e., Klan members, Timothy McVeigh, etc.

2. This wouldn’t work with the Democrats, you can’t substitute a black person for the “N” in DNC.

Hey, what the fuck? They took away all the hip hop, and went and smoothed it all out on the R&B tip!

DNC should retaliate with an image of an unshaven white man in an confederate-flag trucker hat and skoal-bulged cheek leaning out of a pick-up truck window, to spit. This would roughly cancel out Steele’s latest web-inanity.

digibal235 October 14, 2009 at 10:32 am

Fingers crossed! Apparently you can upload your own picture for the GOP faces beta… or (hopefully) not your own picture, and 128 generous characters on why you’re a Republican. I already used Tim McVeigh, DIBS.

Has anyone noticed the “Accomplishments” picture of Howard University? Its a modern day picture (with a late model car in the foreground) that they turned black and white to fit in with the others.

I’m not sure they pay their interns enough for this.

comicbookguy October 14, 2009 at 10:41 am

So the GOP plan is…

1) Alienate all but the old southern white folks
2) Reinvent themselves as a young hip-hop urban party
3) Profit!

hobospacejunkie October 14, 2009 at 10:44 am

Oh, you can be sure they’ll be collecting underpants in there somewhere. Also.

[re=434178]queeraselvis v 2.0[/re]: What are they citing for that? Grant? Grant stayed sober just long enough to sign that law, not to actually enforce it.

[re=434167]Terry[/re]: I don’t think they’re worried about looking racist for firing Steele. I mean, thirty seconds of video should be enough to justify that to anyone, Steele’s dog included. What they’re really worried about is that if they fire him, for being dumb, everyone might notice how cynically racist it was to hire Steele in the first place.

All the bitching that racist conservatives do all the time about affirmative action, and the VERY REAL THREAT that an underqualified black man might be hired somewhere, ANYWHERE, based on the color of his skin? They are looking back at the chairman elections and realizing that is precisely what they did. Don’t want to alienate the base!

EggplantParm October 14, 2009 at 11:46 am

From the “Who we are” page: “For a long time Republicans have been known as the “G.O.P.” with party faithful believing it meant the “Grand Old Party.” But apparently the original meaning (in 1875) was “gallant old party.” When automobiles were invented it also came to mean, “get out and push.” That’s still a pretty good slogan for Republicans who depend every campaign year on the hard work of hundreds of thousands of everyday volunteers to get out and vote and push people to support the causes of the Republican Party.”

What’s ironic about the list of “Republican accomplishments,” which is mainly from the 1800s, is that it tries to make it look that, deep down in their heart of hearts, Republicans are really Democrats. I mean, can you imagine the current Republican Party creating Yellowstone National Park? Or for that matter, enacting the 15th Amendment?

Did anyone notice how they have the “minority” folks posted more than once on the “Why I’m a Republican” page? Sheila’s little thumbnail pic showed up in three different places.

Zadig October 14, 2009 at 12:47 pm

Do they honestly think they can fool people into thinking that what the Republican Party is and does hasn’t changed radically in the last century (give or take a decade)?

Come on, Republicans, don’t even PRETEND that you want to claim Lincoln as your own. I mean, even if we ignore the whole “not being a dick to black people” thing, Lincoln firmly established the dominion of the federal government over the state, which I am pretty sure that you guys are still mad about. And Roosevelt? He interfered in the free, unfettered action of the SACRED MARKET, you guys. Dammit, stop acting like these are men you actually look up to.

In the impossible event that Teddy Roosevelt or Abraham Lincoln rose from the dead, and the even more unlikely that the shambling undead presidents actually WANTED to join the Republican Party, they would be promptly drummed out as hippy-dippy pansy socialist fascist liberals. They would lose the Republican Primary to literally anyone, including post-Watergate Richard Nixon and Mitt Romney.
