VIDEO: Republican Rebrand: New Year, Same Old Party

From the Party that brought you “legitimate rape” and “forty seven percent” in 2012, what did you expect after its self-imposed autopsy of 2013? The new, improved GOP of the past 365 days has included such classics as Rep. Don Young reminiscing about hiring “wetbacks,” Senator Saxby Chambliss blaming sexual assault on “hormones,” Iowa Rep. Steve King…being Steve King, Michigan Republicans trying to ban insurance from covering abortion services for rape victims, and Rep. Steve Pearce claiming wives should “voluntarily submit” to their husbands.
