Not content to alienate every reasonable conservative the Republicans take the bold step of making the same mistakes, this time with an outreach director.
But Connelly, a Baptist, has told multiple South Carolina Republicans that he will be steering the national party's outreach to faith-based groups. He will be based in South Carolina.
Hiring a full-time faith-based outreach director was one of 14 recommendations outlined by the RNC's post-election "Growth and Opportunity Project" released earlier this year.
The so-called GOP "autopsy" did little to define the job other than to say the RNC should "focus on engaging faith-based organizations and communities with the Republican Party" - a complicated task as the party tries to woo younger voters whose attitudes on social issues, especially same-sex marriage, are increasingly out of step with the evangelical wing of the conservative movement.
Apparently there is money in deluding poor Americans focused on religion.
That is great news for the left blogosphere as we are guaranteed more word salads and outright stupidity from the right. Such as gems like these:
Limiting the evidence to just the past two weeks, Exhibit No. 1: Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert, a GOP member of House Judiciary Committee, told a witness — who had ended her pregnancy after having been advised that the fetus was brain dead, that she should have carried the “child” to term.
Exhibit No. 2: Erik Erickson, the founder of RedState, mansplained to Fox News’ incredulous Megyn Kelly this week that “when you look at biology, look at the natural world, the roles of a male and a female in society, and other animals, the male typically is the dominant role.”
Exhibit No. 3: Phil Bryant, Mississippi’s first-term governor, blamed working mothers for American illiteracy.
Exhibit No. 4, Georgia Senator Saxby Chambliss attributed rape in the armed forces to hormones.”
