Hot GOP Chicks [Video]

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.

Hey, remember when the Republicans ran a lady for vice president, and complained about the “sexism!” heaped on her by Democratic women? Remember how the GOP claimed to flood the zone with female candidates, purported to be the real feminists defending womankind against horrible liberalism, and decreed 2010 to be the year of the “mama grizzly“?

Their bad! It was all a ploy to score hot chicks, and to leave the dregs for those boner commies on the left. Ha ha, yeah bro! High-five it! Pass me one of them Bud Light Limes!

Yes, it’s true: Comes information that the Minnesota state GOP*, which insists that you take Rep. Michele Bachmann and this guy seriously, put its true womanly feelings on YouTube. Shorter version: GOP babes are BABES with Tom Jones’ endorsement…and Dem womyn are ugly fat butch dog lesbians, especially when you Photoshop them onto pictures of hairy Arab detainees and other man bodies! Note: That is not me exaggerating with cynical lefty hyperbole. Please, for the love of all that’s holy and sacred, watch this video in its entirety:

The Minnesota Independent caught up with the state GOP’s site’s webmaster, Randy Brown, who not only copped to posting the video, but defended it: “[I]ts only intention was to bring a smile to a few peoples faces, and possibly irritate a few others. Is it fair? Does that matter? It wasn’t intended to be fair. It was intended to be funny.

Yeah, ha ha, ha ha! Rawk, bro! Let’s go watch some b-ball and shoot pigeons with some brews. Hang on, dudebrah, just lemme get my beer koozie!

[*Note: Minnesota GOP communications director Mark Drake called to clarify that the video was on a district GOP site, not the state GOP’s site, and that he’d never heard of the webmaster before. While expressing regret over the video’s content, he said the 56th district was one of more than 100 autonomous Republican parties in the state, and his umbrella organization wasn’t responsible. He then declined to answer follow-up questions regarding what action, if any, had been taken by the state GOP to make the local group accountable for its actions. Mark, if you’re reading this and want to explain what steps the state GOP is taking, give us a call.]

It sure feels that way to me, and here at Mother Jones, we’ve been thinking a lot about what journalism needs to do differently, and how we can have the biggest impact.

We kept coming back to one word: corruption. Democracy and the rule of law being undermined by those with wealth and power for their own gain. So we're launching an ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project to do deep, time-intensive reporting on systemic corruption, and asking the MoJo community to help crowdfund it.

We aim to hire, build a team, and give them the time and space needed to understand how we got here and how we might get out. We want to dig into the forces and decisions that have allowed massive conflicts of interest, influence peddling, and win-at-all-costs politics to flourish.

It's unlike anything we've done, and we have seed funding to get started, but we're looking to raise $500,000 from readers by July when we'll be making key budgeting decisions—and the more resources we have by then, the deeper we can dig. If our plan sounds good to you, please help kickstart it with a tax-deductible donation today.

Thanks for reading—whether or not you can pitch in today, or ever, I'm glad you're with us.
