Old Rich White Guys, the GOP and Diversity

Since politics can be a serious thing… I mean we’re screening people to become our next world leaders and all… I will try to keep a straight face for the duration of this post.

(smirking)

The GOP has announced the “stars” of its convention. They have chosen them in an attempt to showcase their party’s… uhh…

Diversity.

Huh.

Ok… well, I guess if a whole lotta old rich white guys… coupled with one old (and yes, rich) white lady thrown in the mix for good measure constitutes diversity then…

There you have it!

According to the Huffington Post, the GOP will host such “super-diverse” leaders as Arnold Schwarzenegger, Rudy Giuliani, Joe Liebermann, Bush Jr., Dick Cheney… and just cuz they really want to diversify… Laura Bush.

I’m sure she’s there for reasons other than, “Hey- since my hubby’s going to be there, I just came along for the ride”.

Right…?

I mean, not like we’re a nation of many races and ethnicities or anything…

But hey- if that smattering of folks who not only think alike but look startlingly similar as well doesn’t accurately represent this country than I don’t know what does!

Here’s to diversity, as after all, ain’t no party like the GOP party.

You’re right- this isn’t funny at all.
