RNC Stops Betting on Red

RNC heeds the advice of Wesley Snipes and elects its first black chairman, Michael Steele.

As a loyal Democrat, I cringed and let out a resounding “Oh Come ON!”  But after thinking it over, this was one of the best PR moves the Republican Party has made in a loooong time. The GOP was in a need of a major facelift, looking increasingly like a party full of pasty white guys out of touch on the major issues facing the nation right now, from climate control to the war in Iraq to healthcare reform.  The economy is still be up for grabs, with neither party clearly marking out an edge.  Steele’s election may give the GOP some much needed leverage on the bailout battleground, making the GOP’s opposition to Obama’s stimulus package seem less racially motivated, less anti-Obama and more anti-Democrat. Looks like it just got some much needed botox with Michael Steele.
