Actress Stacey Dash says it’s time for the GOP to get in the ring. Her full tweet:
GOP it’s time to put on our gloves and fight like Mohammad Ali. Float like a butterfly. Sting like a bee. http://www.mediaite.com/online/the-gops-undeserved-comeback
The Mediaite article she links to states that the GOP is staging an “undeserved comeback.” The article, by Noah Rothman, cites a Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll showing the Republican Party ahead of Democrats on a variety of issues, including the budget deficit, the American economy, and foreign policy.
The WSJ/NBC poll came out several days after voters in Colorado Springs and Pueblo, Colo., recalled two Democratic state Senators and replaced them with Republicans. The Pueblo district is reportedly 47% Democratic and 23% Republican.
Deserved or undeserved, it seems the Republican Party is poised to make gains in the 2014 mid-term elections.
Needless to say, Dash’s tweet elicited the usual bile from some on the Left:

By the way, if you’re going to correct someone’s spelling, make sure you know how to spell:
@REALStaceyDash "Muhammad Ail"
