Republicans have a race problem, and continue to do everything they can to make it worse. Most recentlythey launched the thoroughly mockable #ImARepublican campaign , which turns out to suck even harder than Rick Santorum at Iowa’s annual goat-blowing festival:

Hmm, Do you suppose we can figure out the common search term that they used when they searched for these images? REPUBLICAN, SURE!

When they tried to recruit her for the campaign, Condi Rice told them exactly where they could put that damn camera.
Soylent GOP is PEOPLE!!!
&quot;IKR? I mean, they used my picture in a <i>Republican</i> ad? How embarrassing!&quot;
Perfectly illustrating their crassroots support.
&quot;Does this candidate make my ass look too big?&quot;
In some local races here, party affiliation or endorsement is kind of fluid. For instance we have had Republican incumbents who (because of party infighting) failed to get renominated get on the ballot as Democrats. Their party switch usually only lasts for one election cycle, and the next time around they go back to contending for the local GOP nomination. In local races you occasionally have to do a bit of research to ascertain whether the Democratic candidate is actually a Democrat.
Notorious leader of a universally-condemned regime from the last century?
Graduate with an [unspecified] degree from [John Doe] University. Now employed in [add descriptor here] industry.
Loyal to the sports teams that I grew up with and have been following for decades. To me they symbolize where I come from.
Two different meanings of the word &quot;constitutionally.&quot; The fact that one is capitalized is a give-away.
I&#039;ll add: Constitutionally (and constitutionally) disingenuous, too.
I&#039;m amused by the GOP&#039;s tragicomically inept grasp of how the Interwebs work. (It&#039;s a series of tubes.) Did they think no one would look at their ad and think, Gee, I wonder if they used stock photos? Did they think using stock photos didn&#039;t send a message (hey, we can&#039;t get any real black people to be in our ad!) that is opposite to the message they wanted to send (hey, look at the beautiful and cool Republican black people who are in our ad!)? Or did they just slap some more lipstick on that poor, poor pig and throw it out into the cold, hard &quot;real&quot; world?
Condi Rice wasn&#039;t available? How about Collin Powell - oh wait, he me be a tad disgruntled.
Why, she&#039;s &quot;Educated Urban Female Glasses Smiling Diversity&quot;
Tyler Perry libel (if that&#039;s possible).
