Republicans’ Committee Chair(MEN).
Another thing that’s awful —> What radical positions these men have taken.

I don’t know what the problem is.  This is representative democracy in action.
These men are a pretty accurate representation of the people that voted for them- white men and subservient white women.

I’m neither subservient, nor a man and I voted Republican. Why? Because Republicans actually know what they’re doing the majority of the time compared to Obama and his ilk. By the way, using race as some identifier just makes you racist. Bottom line.

You’re right, that was maybe over the line.  I’m sure there are all kinds of great reasons for a woman to vote Republican.
But, as I’ve maintained, you can’t vote for the GOP because of the economy and pretend the hate, the fear, and the ignorance inherent in today’s GOP doesn’t exist.  You may very well believe that gays shouldn’t marry, women shouldn’t have the right to choose, AND that our children’s education and the rights of workers should take a back seat to that cardinal sin of raising taxes.  I think you’re wrong (and kind of a bad person) if you do, but that doesn’t matter, it’s your right to think that way.  Those men up there believe the same thing.  Representative government.

WTF?

The incident would be ugly anywhere, but it is especially troubling for a party whose nominee attracted 0 percent of the black vote in a recent NBC poll.

In case you didn’t hear about this, this is perhaps the lowest point of the entire 2012 campaign.

One crazy person getting thrown out for acting like a crazy person is the low point!?

I would have thought the low point was the GOP actively working to disenfranchise non-white, non-male, non straight, and non-wealthy people, but to each his own.
