Actually, we should show photos of the Democratic party members at parties costing a small fortune just to attend and then their loyal voters who live in the slums and projects of the inner cities.

More like they aren't complete religious nutjobs like the mainstream GOP. RINOs are the Country Club set and the more libertarian wing. The wealthy educated were once the GOP mainstream, but Nixon's Southern Strategy to get Southern voters took the Democratic party's frothing bigots and religious nuts and they eventually became the backbone of the GOP, a place where having any kind of rational thoughts or common sense makes you unwelcome (Olympia Snowe, Richard Lugar)
