Lefties gleefully took up the hashtag #GOPautopsy, offering gems like this:

Principles? There is pandering to do!
Identity politics at its most absurd.
With things like “hackathons.” No, really.
Heh. Other Twitter users tell the RNC to “consult this.”
Drew at Ace of Spades pointed out the insider influx of the committee members.
It’s exactly the kind of thing you’d expect from a committee made up of a lobbyist, a long time RNC insider, a “veteran strangest and and top ally of Jeb Bush“, and a member of W. Bush’s team, Ari Fleischer. Only one member seems to have any grassroots credibility.
This is a pretty vanilla report. That would be fine because that’s what these things are. The problem is the RNC hyped it as some important moment in the history of the GOP’s renewal. Once again, they are over promising and under delivering. Stopping that bit of terrible marketing would be a major step in the right direction.
