Republican leaders are getting together next week for "an extraordinary special session" where they'll be meeting to ratify a resolution to rename the Democrats as the "Democratic Socialist Party." Yeah.

Reports Politico's Roger Simon...

A member of the Republican National Committee told me Tuesday that when the RNC meets in an extraordinary special session next week, it will approve a resolution rebranding Democrats as the "Democrat Socialist Party."

When I asked if such a resolution would force RNC Chairman Michael Steele to use that label when talking about Democrats in all his speeches and press releases, the RNC member replied: "Who cares?"

Yep, that sounds about right. Just keep driving yourselves further and further into irrelevancy fellas. Enjoy life in the regressive minority.
