Paul Shanklin speaks:
Is it provocative? Well, most political satire is. What I do for a living is major-league provocative…”
“Apparently, Chairman Duncan doesn’t listen to Rush Limbaugh or conservative Republicans out here in the hinterlands,” Shanklin said as he listed Duncan’s recent accomplishments: “Let’s see, he’s lost the presidency, the House and the Senate. I’m kind of shocked and appalled he’s still there.”
Shanklin credited Saltsman with laying the framework for how far the GOP has come in Tennessee.
Saltsman, he said, “set a tone of leadership that got us” the state House and the state Senate. Under Saltsman as state GOP chairman, Shanklin said the Nashvillian made sure Republicans were running for state House and state Senate seats.
“Chip makes things happen,” Shanklin said.
Based soley on the numbers, the GOP leadership (real and would-be) should be WAY more concerned about turning off anti-p.c. white voters with senses of humor/satire who WERE going to vote for them, than about the p.c. black voters and their fauxcon white enablers without senses of humor/satire, who were never going to vote GOP anyway.
Whether or not the GOP ever takes the White House again is less important than standing up to touchy victocrats and their faux outrage who can’t or won’t appreciate the importance political satire plays in the health of the body politic.
Giving in to the latest “devil’s food cake is racist” “scandal” is NOT the way to fix the culture or the GOP. Just the opposite.
