    Cool Republicans Consider Welcoming People Who Believe in Math and Science

    Opting for a bold “big tent” strategy to rebuild the party, Reince Priebus, the chairman of the Republican National Committee, told reporters today, “We need to welcome people who believe in different things than we do, like math and science.”

    After disappointing results in Tuesday’s election, Mr. Priebus said that it was time for Republicans to become “more tolerant of those with a math-and-science lifestyle.”

    Just because we don’t believe in those things doesn’t mean we can’t get along with people who do,” he said. “We want to send this message: math and science Americans are Americans, too.”

    In the biggest departure from its previous electoral strategy, Mr. Priebus said, the Republican Party is “even considering trying to appeal to women” ...

    It's a joke, cigar, haha.

    Question, when are liberals going to "believe" in science? They don't when they confuse polling and math with science.

    Republicans believe in math and science. They just have no use for pseudo-science ginned up to support additional taxation, regulation, and robbing Americans to send money to the UN.
