Pat Boone Revisited ?
Remember when Pat Boone redid "Little Richard's" "Tutti Fruitti"? Rich said the white kids had Pat's record by the stereo and his under the bed.You don't mess with the original.Will the Republican Chuck D run out and pick cotton? Will the Republican Flavor Flav say Yessir Boss instead of Yea Boyee ? It ain't gonna' work.Here's some of the "steelo" from Michael Steele H/T Daily Kos:
"It's hard out here for a pimp.
Newly elected RNC Chairman Michael S. Steele plans an “off the hook” public relations offensive to attract younger voters, especially blacks and Hispanics, by applying the party's principles to “urban-suburban hip-hop settings.”
The RNC's first black chairman will “surprise everyone” when updating the party's image using the Internet and advertisements on radio, on television and in print, he told The Washington Times."
First it is patronizing to think that to speak to the "kids" they have to dumb down the message.Now President Obama did do some "dogwhistles" the Jay-Z shoulder brush,saying Aiiight, and saying that"he's ain't going for the okie doke".It took FOX a while to translate what he was doing,hell Steele didn't get it.Sorry Charlie,I don't think that people who "cling close to their guns" will be down wit' da brothers.
