Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), the highest ranked House Republican woman, said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that Republicans need to become more “modern” but not “moderate.”
“I don’t think it’s about the Republican Party needing to become more moderate; I really believe it’s the Republican Party becoming more modern,” she said. “And whether it’s Hispanics, whether it’s women, whether it’s young people, the Republican Party has to make it a priority to take our values, to take our vision to every corner of this country.”
“I think it’s more about the messenger and who’s communicating our values to every corner of this country.”
I can see it all now:
Cathy Rodgers to young Latina: ¿Cómo te va, señorita? Estoy aprendiendo español y no lo habla bien. ¿Le gustaría convertirse en un republicano?
Senorita: Hueles mal, perra. Váyase.
Ms. Rodgers: Gracias. I am sure Sen. Rubio will be happy to translate for me. Some of the words don’t seem to be in my Republican Spanish Dictionary.
My unauthorized translation of senorita: [You stink, bitch. Go away.]
I suspect a Mormon missionary would have better luck with that conversion thing.
