Republican National Convention leader Michael S. Steele tries to appeal to the young, “urban suburban hip hop” demographic by going on a publicity blitz that is sure to be comical. Read Steele’s “off the hook” statements for the Washington Times
In the Washington Times Steele says:
“We need messengers to really capture that region – young, Hispanic, black, a cross section … We want to convey that the modern-day GOP looks like the conservative party that stands on principles. But we want to apply them to urban-surburban hip-hop settings.” But, he elaborated with a laugh, “we need to uptick our image with everyone, including one-armed midgets.”And…It will be avant garde, technically,” he said. “It will come to table with things that will surprise everyone – off the hook.”
Does that mean cutting-edge?
“I don’t do ‘cutting-edge’,” he said.”That’s what Democrats are doing. We’re going beyond cutting-edge.”
With this change the Republican game or just become a minstrel show?
