    Republicans don't have a messaging problem.  It's not that too many Republican politicians feel the need to say aloud what they really think about rape victims and the working poor.  It's that they actually believe that shit, and saying it out loud is simply a natural consequence of having politicians who are far out of touch with the real world.  In a climate in which nobody is hiring, Republicans say that the problem is that all those jobless people are lazy.  After the hottest summer on record, Republicans want to pretend that climate change isn't happening.  And with corporations posting record profits and paying zero taxes, Republicans think the problem is that they're taxed too high and it's stifling job creation.

    Look, the best their skeez could manage against a Democratic President dragged down by a weak economy was 47 percent of the vote.  Imagine what the score would have been if the 2012 election were played with 6 percent unemployment and 3 percent GDP growth.  They would have literally been crushed.  Nobody is buying their shit any more.
