aqua buddha at howard

i realize that the GOP isn't looking to me for advice, but maybe they should stop using the "decades ago republicans were for civil rights and democrats were racist" pitch in their minority outreach efforts. that crap might play well at CPAC, but there's no conceivable reason that would be a compelling argument for black people to vote republican right now. i mean, who gives a shit what the republican party stood for in the 19th century? okay fine, i kinda give a shit as a matter of historical curiosity, but why would that be relevant to casting a vote in the 21st century? parties' policies change over time

it's also pretty surprising that rand paul didn't expect that students at howard university would be aware of black history. way to condescend, rand!
