Yo, My Good Dawg

RNC Chair Michael Steele says the Republicans will reach out to minorities.

“We want to convey that the modern-day GOP looks like the conservative party that stands on principles,” Steele told the Washington Times. “But we want to apply them to urban-suburban hip-hop settings.”

“It will be avant garde, technically,” he said of the new public relations team he’s signing on. “It will come to the table with things that will surprise everyone – off the hook.” He also added: “I don’t do ‘cutting-edge.’ That’s what Democrats are doing. We’re going beyond cutting-edge.”

Well, bless my buttons. I for one will be both bemused and mirthful to see the august members of the Republican National Committee endeavour with great astuteness to get down with their bad selves.
