A NEW SLOGAN FOR THE GOP?
The real head of the GOP:
On Monday Rush Limbaugh became the most prominent in a series of conservative figures to push back against a new Republican re-branding effort launched by GOP luminaries over the weekend.
During his program, the brash radio personality whacked the National Council for a New America -- an effort undertaken by, among others, Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush, John McCain, and Eric Cantor to repair the party's image after the '08 election -- saying that rather than a "listening tour," what the party needed was "a teaching tour."
The titular head of the GOP:
"All you moderates out there, y'all come. I mean, that's the message," [Michael] Steele said. "The message of this party is this is a big table for everyone to have a seat. I have a place setting with your name on the front."
But, he added: "Understand that when you come into someone's house, you're not looking to change it. You come in because that's the place you want to be."
In other words: Voters, shut up and eat your conservatism.
There it is. There's my new slogan for the Republican Party. Guys, I offer it to you for free -- you can have it.
