Inside the Republican heart

Know them by the company they keep, and the company they don't.

Back in September, when Dawson was first quietly laying the groundwork for his RNC run, The State newspaper reported that he resigned his membership in the nearly 80-year-old Forest Lake Club. Members told the newspaper at the time that the club’s deed has a whites-only restriction and has no black members.
Look, it's not like the GOP is making a tremendous effort to hide what it is: The party of racist, money-grubbing swine who work for the rich and hate the working class.

Sure, every four years Republicans try to portray themselves as populists and explain that their efforts to eliminate estate and capital-gains taxes are just their way of advocating for the working man, but this is a party that blames the woes of Ford, Chrylser and GM on greedy unionized workers who are victimizing the poor, helpless corporate giants (the GOP isn't about to say that the Big Three's troubles have anything to do with poor leadership, poor products or -- especially -- the lack of a single-payer heath coverage in the United States, which is a huge competitive disadvantage).

But the McCain campaign showed that hate-fucking American workers for three years and offering them flowers the fourth year is a losing strategy. Why else in a country of 300 million people would a campaign have to look so hard for, and lean so heavily on, a member of the working class who supports its policies, like Joe the (not a licensed) Plumber?

Hey, I hope Dawson wins the RNC chair, and that the right keeps up its desperate bullshit meme about this being a "center-right" country. Keep marginalizing yourselves right into oblivion, keep clinging to a failed strategy and keep living in the past while the rest of us progress into the 21st century without you.
