Rebranding is a surprisingly effective tool, if you have a decent product to sell and you don't already have an entrenched image in the public consciousness. The Republicans are the party of old white conservative dudes, gun nuts, and church ladies. They're going to have a really hard time convincing anyone otherwise.

Plus the GOP has the advantage that the compliant media will accept the rebranding at face value and that will do most of the work for them. It will require some time for their innate evil to seep back through the coat of new paint.

"New Coke."

Great idea!

Would this be the same Aaron Schock who was looking a charges that he had improperly solicited SuperPac money. A Cantor aid refused to work with the Office of Congressional Ethics in investigating this. And was looking at a special investigative subcommittee to investigate this - except the majority repub house refused to do so ?
