When Republican Kids Imitate Their Elders, This Is What You Get

A not-so-funny college bake sale, though I am sure Rush and his local mini-clones will slap the kids on the back:

-- Campus Republicans at the University of California Berkeley have cooked up a storm of controversy with their plans for a bake sale.

But it's not your everyday collegiate fundraiser they've got in mind. They've developed a sliding scale where the price of the cookie or brownie depends on your gender and the color of your skin.

During the sale, scheduled for Tuesday, baked goods will be sold to white men for $2.00, Asian men for $1.50, Latino men for $1.00, black men for $0.75 and Native American men for $0.25. All women will get $0.25 off those prices.

"The pricing structure is there to bring attention, to cause people to get a little upset," Campus Republican President Shawn Lewis, who planned the event, told CNN-affiliate KGO. "But it's really there to cause people to think more critically about what this kind of policy would do in university admissions."

Lewis says it's a way to make a statement about pending legislation that would let the California universities consider race or national origin during the admission process.

But the young Republicans have been on the receiving end of a fierce backlash. Reaction has been so negative they've been forced to cancel their customary lunchtime tabling duties, according to KGO.

What a bunch of pathetic whiny bitches. Reminds me of the Dane GOPs, which seem to be a collection of folks with the approximate maturity of middle schoolers.

These people deserve to face real adversity and pain. Not that I'm confident that those weak a-clowns would ever learn anything from it.

A more truly Republican bake sale would offer a sliding scale based on the size of your paycheck -- the more you earn, the less you pay.

If your income is over a million dollars, there's no charge. If it's over 100 million, you get a "rebate" with each "purchase."

@ mitch

You obviously have no clue about the structure of our tax system, nor who actually pays the taxes in our country.

Best of luck to you.
