Tempest In A Teapot: "The G.O.P. Is A White Christian Party"

I'm not sure why Republicans are outraged over Dr. Dean's (a/k/a The Democratic Party Chair) statement yesterday on the makeup of the G.O.P.:

"The Republicans are not very friendly to different kinds of people."
"They're a pretty monolithic party."
"They all behave the same and they look the same."
"It's pretty much a white, Christian party."

The G.O.P. may not like to advertise some of these facts, but they are facts. You Elephants can't have it both ways; you can't beat down and disenfranchise people you hope to vote for you. Over the last year, there has been evidence of Republican support among women and minorities slipping even further. Duh.
