GOP Senator Tim Scott delivered a characteristically fantastic speech at the RNC last night.

CBS News digital White House reporter Kathryn Watson couldn’t help but be impressed:

And that got her to thinking … what if the GOP gave itself a messaging makeover?

First of all:

True story.

But also, where have Kathryn and her fellow Real Journalists™ been?

Clearly they do not.

That’s the thing: The Republican Party is far from perfect, but it has “focused on the things Tim Scott is talking about” for years. And the media have either ignored that or been outright hostile.

Spare all of us.
