Failed Republican Branding Update # (Oh, I lose track)

I can’t keep track of all these tidbits showing how Republican rebranding is failing — or has utterly failed. But, no matter where this falls in the looooooooooooong list, here’s the latest: A Republican called a 19-year-old female activist a “bitch.”:

Steve Kush, the chairman of Bernalillo County Republican Party in New Mexico, called a 19-year-old Working America volunteer a “radical bitch” on Twitter Tuesday night after she testified before the county commission in favor of raising the minimum wage.

“Nice hat Working America chick but damn you are a radical bitch,” Kush tweeted.

Working America, a labor movement advocacy group, sent several members to the county meeting on Tuesday to advocate for a measure that would increase the county’s minimum wage. As the organization’s state director, Chelsey Evans, stood in line to testify on the proposal, Kush disparaged her on his Facebook page.

“Uh oh,” he wrote, “another Working America chick…nice boots…I know she makes more than min wage.” He later added in the comments, “she was hot enough to almost make me register democrat.”

Some Republicans sure seem hard at work on the women and Latino votes.

Hard at work losing them.
