The re- re- re- re- invention of the Grand Old Party


This is Orion Advertising and we approve this message.

As the sainted Ronald Reagan might say, there they go again. The Republicans are reinventing themselves, slipping in and out of personas faster than a model changing clothes during Fashion Week. All in a vain attempt to put a pretty mask on a harsh, plutocratic and insurrectionist face.

Meet the new Republicans (spoiler alert: same as the old ones), who have launched a hip and happening new website to set forth their new (old) positions: lower taxes, smaller government, American exceptionalism and local values (states rights?). It features a cool-looking line drawing of an elephant that, when you glance at it quickly, appears to be moving backwards. Best of all, there’s a section called “critical thinking.” It’s just a collection of policy papers but you have to admit that “critical thinking” is a curious descriptor for a party that rejects evolution, climate change and healthcare reform.

Jindal and Jeb are lurking there too. After all, we wouldn’t want to take this re-invention thing too far.
