One of my favorite movies from the 1980s is Michael Keaton’s Mr. Mom.

In the movie, Keaton plays a former executive laid off for being honest, who struggles with becoming a stay-at-home dad while his wife goes off to corporate America to become the breadwinner. In one of the movie’s funniest scenes, Keaton takes his children to school for the first time, unaware there is a system in place to make that mad dash as organized as possible. As a result, Keaton frustrates the rest of the moms by going about it the wrong way. The volunteer directing traffic taps on Keaton’s window to get his attention. When he lowers his window to hear what she has to say, she scolds him sternly.

“You’re doing it wrong,” she says.

She might as well have been talking to the Republican Party.

Following another loss to Barack Obama, there has been a lot of hand-wringing within the Republican Party ruling class about attracting minorities to the party, which is long overdue if you ask me. Over the years I’ve interviewed almost every minority conservative I could find, and the list of them that have been earnestly reached out to and/or assisted by the Republican Party leadership apparatus is a real, real small one.

That’s because the Republican Party ruling class is doing it wrong.
