In the ongoing saga...

...of the Republican Party's "rebranding" effort, or whatever you call it, the report commissioned by RNC Chairman Reince Priebus (above) said:

We have to blow the whistle at corporate malfeasance and attack corporate welfare. We should speak out when a company liquidates itself and its executives receive bonuses but rank-and-file workers are left unemployed. We should speak out when C.E.O.s receive tens of millions of dollars in retirement packages but middle-class workers have not had a meaningful raise in years.

But, seriously, aren't large corporations and their CEOs a crucial part of the party's base? Don't Republicans rely heavily on them for fundraising? Where on earth would the GOP be without them?
