Youngest state GOP chairman looks to appeal to 'buffet generation'

Washington (CNN) - When the chairman of the South Carolina Republican Party abruptly resigned two weeks ago to take a new job in Washington, GOP activists appointed Matt Moore, the party's former executive director, to replace their leader.

Moore earned another distinction in the process. The boyish-looking 31-year-old is now the youngest state party chairman in the country, in either party.

    Youth is a plus. But let's be real. It's still South KaKalaK.

    How quaint of them to appoint another person from their diminishing demographic. SC has appointed a black guy to Congress, and a young guy to lead their state party. Meanwhile, the message remains unchanged. The war on jobs, women, the poor, the sick, the elderly, students, and anyone who is "not one of us" continues on, shamefully unabated.

    Republicans bring nothing to the buffet table. That is why they are losing young voters.

    Liberlas hating again as usual. Probably hate her because she has MS.
    No, we dislike her because she is an out-of-touch, un-American aristocrat. Is that my Nazi propganda fix for the day, or can I add more?
    Thanks for proving my point.
    Huge difference between dislike and hatred, one that you apparently can't distinguish. Her disability is not an issue tofor us: its her viewpoint that is NOT informed by experience that is the issue. A woman who marries the son of a multimillionaire governor is NOT going to have the same experiences as you or I, either as a child or as an adult. MS, while tragic on a personal level, is not the issue: her and her husband's public behavior IS the issue. Now, do I need to run through this again, or do you need visual aids?

    Nothing will help until you pry the tinfoil hat off his head.

    I read the whole.tedious piece and still don't know what this kid means by "buffet generation". If he means that his demographic us the first, like, EVAH, to pick and choose policy platforms between the parties, he's misinformed.

    Get off my lawn, kid.
