RNC to Rebrand Democrats ‘Socialists’

Nice to see that the Republican Party is thinking seriously about its future. According to Roger Simon at Politico, “A member of the Republican National Committee told me Tuesday that when the RNC meets in an extraordinary special session next week, it will approve a resolution rebranding Democrats as the ‘Democrat Socialist Party.’” Chairman Michael Steele wrote a memo opposing the resolution last month, saying it “will accomplish little than to give the media and our opponents the opportunity to mischaracterize Republicans,” but when Simon asked an RNC member if Michael Steele would have to use the label in all his speeches, he said “who cares?”
