Stephen Colbert does an analysis of the GOP’s new report on why they think they lost the last election and what they plan to do about it. One strategy is to use celebrities to court the youth vote and Colbert and suggests some names of conservative celebrities that will be surefire hits with the young.
I think it is condescending to think that young people are more likely to be swayed by celebrity endorsements than any other age group and this alone shows that the GOP really needs to think through more carefully how to attract new voters.
