The entire new website is just horrible. And the Michael Steele walk-out on the homepage is creepy as sh**t.

Up until Steele, I thought Dean was the most inept party chairman (he's not even CLOSE to Steele)

Really?  I've been extremely dissatisfied with Steele's chairmanship thus far, but I like the new site.  What do you find wrong with it?  I might be missing some things, being that I have no experience in web/graphic design.

in general, the first black chairman's blog should not be called "What Up," the administrator's login & passord as well as the RNC chairman's gmail password should not be posted, and the GOP's "New Leader" section should not take you to an empty 404 error page.

In addition to all the things Lunar mentioned, I just think the overall design concept isn't particularly visually appealing. The red is way too bright and bold, there's way too much open space and embedded material with links, waaay too much text... I haven't looked through it all but my initial impression was not very good.

ROFL at the list of heroes. Half of them are black. I wonder why? Jackie Robinson is listed as a GOP hero. Was he even a Republican?

There are two possibilities:
1) Some white Republican thought this was a good idea
2) Michael Steele thought this was a good idea and the whites felt too racially awkward to call him out on it

Honestly, I dont like the homepage of the new site.
But it has a nice social networking part. It's similar to Ning.
It's nice. But I don't like the "faces" thing.

Is there really a black woman on the GOP homepage or am I hallucinating?

Apparently the face changes every time you refresh. With a sample size of six, I've gotten two black men, two black women, and two white men. This party couldn't be any more of a self-parody.

The best one (which Lunar mentioned earlier) is easily Frederick Douglas.

Wouldn't it have been cuter if they had weighted each group by their percentage of the American populous populace?  Every five hundred clicks you get a Lithuanian lesbian

Another [generic] black man! That increases my sample to five black people (two of them historical: Joseph Rainey and Edward Brooke) and two white people.
