This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the Republican Party article.
I smell Obamunism.
This is what every article should look like, satire. Kindergarten stuff like 'Earth was discovered, ironically, by the visibly anti-science critic Albert Einstein. He was taking a trip to search for more pictures for his soon-to-be-released book, "Why the word Earth should be banned". It was then that his driver, Adolf Hitler, accidentally drove the interstellar bicycle into earth.' - That was just a random example from the article Earth - most of unencyclopedia looks like this.
Though this thing holds a lot of bias, it's still quite funny, even for a nonpartisan like me. 22.214.171.124 16:48, 24 June 2006 (UTC) Happy Weasel 03:50, 26 March 2007 (UTC) ...and it is pretty balenced when you bring in the democrat party. what the fuck why are they switched up? someone should move them back. 126.96.36.199 20:20, 18 September 2006 (UTC)
The merge tag cracks me up. Holy shit. --188.8.131.52 08:08, 18 November 2006 (UTC)
Needs a rewrite?
I don't really see what's the problem with this piece that needs a rewrite. The "Mascots" subject maybe couple use a couple sentances, but I'd say it's pretty complete.

The tag was probably placed by some numb-nut Brit who doesn't think it's funny because there's no picture of Benny Hill running around in drag outside of Fawlty Towers...
What, exactly, is wrong with running around in drag? (not british) --Ekashp 22:35, 16 April 2007 (UTC)
I love that ekashp doesn't mind giving the impression that they run around in drag, but is very clear to point out they are not British. "Okay, I may be a woman called mandy on week ends, but I am not, and never have been, a God damn limey!" 184.108.40.206 14:41, 12 January 2008 (UTC)
I am rewriting this article
Will you guys help me fix this shit up? Happy Weasel 16:14, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

|Humour:||4||There's the occasional good joke,but it's far too random and repetitive.|
|Concept:||1||This is the article's chief failing. It's not really satire, it's just arbitrary abuse. I know that these days that's most of what passes for political satire. I know that the Republican Party is probably one of the most hated organisations in the world today and this is a wiki. But still the article seriously needs some discipline and direction not to mention a little thing called wit. Satire should be a sharp knife, not a blunt instrument.|
|Prose and formatting:||5||Very uneven, but it's mostly readable.|
|Images:||3||Images mostly appropriate; captions mostly not very funny.|
|Miscellaneous:||3||Needs serious editing, but mostly it just needs direction.|
|Final Score:||16||I think this article needs someone to completely rewrite it and then watch it like a hawk for signs of decay. As a non-American, I'm not volunteering. The history section should have more to do with parody of the actual history of the party, rather than that Roman stuff. The level of repetition could be toned down. Above all, it needs real jokes, not just snide put-downs and irrelevant insults.
For the record, I'm not an American, and as such I am not a partisan of any US party. I'm just a guy who likes to see witty political satire rather than childish insults.

Oh, my effin God!! I LOVE that new logo with that trailor-living, white-trash republican-voting, crazy-ass bitch on it! Can we please, please, please move it up to the top spot??? It is so typical of the repugnant Republican masses!! 220.127.116.11 20:57, 11 May 2007 (UTC)
Ok so I know this article, as well as the Democratic article, is meant in jest. But to suggest Republicans demand blacks pick cotton is a bit overly-ridiculous, considering the RP freed the slaves, and furthered the Civil Rights movement. --18.104.22.168 23:09, 17 March 2008 (UTC)
~_~ It's not supposed to be serious...
Two words for you. Southern Strategy.
communist vs. fascist
Somebody put the communist template (the one with the Soviet and Chinese flag) at the top of this article. I replaced it with the fascist one. I think that is more appropriate since Democrats are always accused of being communist and Republicans are always accused of being fascists or Nazis.
I had to edit the article again. The Satan thing didn't make sense, and the Liberal thing just didn't seem consistent. If the Democrat page is going to have the communist template, then the Republican page should have the fascist template. It is consistent and makes sense.
The Republican Party (often referred to as the bad guys) is
This needs some rewriting. Its not satire, just anti-semitism and racism. Mad ass stupid.
Needs an edit
I can't see where I can edit the text however "Most Republicans are gay but not all or openly gay. " should probably read "Most Republicans are gay but not all are openly gay. " —The preceding unsigned comment was added by DamOTclese (talk • contribs)
