It's about the new buzzword, Rebranding. Listen to republican strategist Kellyanne Conway. Here's the transcript:
Kellyanne Conway: The policies of the republican party are less the issue than the image. ... republicans need for people to even stop and notice the product, and not say ick, and keep walking.
Samantha Bee: So it's not the economy or the war, it's the packaging?
KC: The packaging of the republican party currently screams to the average consumer, "Don't touch this. Stand Back."
SB: It's like the republican party is a shit sandwich. How do you get Americans to eat the sandwich?
KC: You dip it in chocolate and say it has no calories.
SB: Turns out, there's a word for that.
It's called Rebranding.
Basically the republican party thinks you are so stupid and in lockstep with them that you will eat the chocolate covered shit sandwich and marvel at how it helps you lose weight because it's calorie free. You then take their buzzwords and talking points and help spread their message to other stupid sheeple.
The problem is, this works. Because the average American is too lazy and ignorant to consider the shit they are eating. They just shovel it in. As long as they get to watch Survivor and Lost, they're happy.
The republican party isn't going to look deep into their hearts and try to become better. god forbid! No, they are right and you are wrong. But to garner your vote and brainwash you a bit more, they will change their image, dumb down their message more, make the talking points simpler, and spoon feed you their shit, sound bite by sound bite. If you eat it, you deserve the dysentery you'll inevitably get.
So, don't just take the talking points and run with them to the water cooler to spread the shit. You sound like the stupid parrot that you've let yourself become. It's time to wake up and stop being led by the nose, to think for yourself, to learn the issues and reevaluate your beliefs. To embrace intelligence, education and common sense. Imagine how great America could be again if we all tried just a little harder to not be such ignorant sheep.
Hey, you non-republicans. You're not off the hook either. Sure, Obama was elected instead of the mccain/palin ticket of vapid religious stupidity. That doesn't mean we can all relax. Obama has already made some strange decisions that warrant keeping a close eye on future choices. If he does start trying to spoon feed us chocolate covered shit, we have to be ready to call him on it. Ok?
The buzzwords of the day: education, common sense, intelligence, observation, critical thinking.
