I got an email from GOP Chairman Michael Steele tonight that had me clicking around on the GOP’s beta website. While there I came across this strange header logo image:

GOP “faces” it says next to the image.

Which is really weird because I never would have thought that a chubby, short haired white guy in a light blue button down shirt would be the face of the Republican party.

Never in a million years.

So I decided to click through on the “faces” link to see what other ethnically and racially diverse set of faces represents today’s Republican party. And guess what I found?

Obviously someone took the time to ensure that nearly half of the pictures were of women (even though the actual stats don’t play out like that). But they couldn’t find enough photos to include even one Asian (0%). And they only managed to find two African Americans (3%).

How’s that whole big tent thing working for you Mr. Steele?

    did anyone else notice that the quotes associated with two of the african-american men are almost identical?

    apt description, but disheartening to me is so often hearing inane gop talking points parroted by people who don't fit this model. so much of the electorate is completely ignorant of politics and the impact it has on their lives, so they latch onto whatever “(non) issue” appeals to their prejudices. no doubt the gop is completely bankrupt of ideas and ethics, but at the same time there isn't a critical mass of well-informed citizens to hold the dems accountable when things need to get done. quite frustrating.
