Young Republican Hung out to Dry

Today, I feel bad for Morgan Wilkins. All she wanted to do was raise awareness on the issue of illegal immigration and shoot up some cardboard cut outs of prominent Democrats. She is a lover of politics, but unfortunately she didn’t hear that you don’t attach the GOP’s good name to anything that could be considered racist in the 2-3 months leading up to a crucial mid-term election when your party is dangerously close to losing control of Congress.

As an “independent contractor” for the College National Republicans, Wilkins was planning a fun afternoon of gaming on the campus of the University of Michigan. Participants could win prizes for catching people dressed as illegal immigrants or shooting paintballs at cardboard cut outs of Hillary Rodham Clinton and John Kerry. Unfortunately, the fun was ruined with outcries of “that’s racist, divisive, and violent!” (which it is, but that isn’t my point). The RNC has spoken out to distance itself from this event and from it’s organizer, Morgan Wilkins saying that the event “"has no affiliation with the Republican National Committee, and (they) certainly condemn this kind of behavior. It's offensive and there's no place for it."

Poor Morgan Wilkins must have thought that since the University of North Texas and Penn State had attempted the “Illegal Immigrant Game” without comment from the RNC, it must be a Republican sanctioned event. Alas, Howard Dean heard about her game and sent a letter to the RNC, who denied all knowledge of her existence, her political aspirations were crushed. I guess no one ever told her that there are only 3 things that can end a young girl’s political career: Getting caught with a dead boy, a live girl, or planning an even that can be misconstrued as racist during a crucial mid-term election year.

I'm offended. And, she's dumb...for so many reasons.

Stepping up on my soapbox.

So I took a look at her little page. She's a Christian, she "loves God". Interesting juxtaposition, since she seems to also be a hate filled biggot. She is also looking for a wealthy man. That's probably b/c she wants someone to take care of her and her child. Oh, a child? Does that suggest premarital sex? I thought that wasn't so okay for the devout.

Anyway, I hope no one who played her little war games ended up in a secret prison for enemy combatants.

I don't know if anyone else has seen the movie "Drop Dead Gorgeous" but the Denise Richards character might have been this woman's motivation. CRAZY. "My mama always said, shoot to kill".
