What's Wrong with this Pictures? It Belongs on a Political War Room Wall

There's nothing coincidental about the Republican US House Leadership being all white males.  This selection of white Party men is a reflection of the shrinking voter base of the Republican Party.  It's another startling example of how the Grand Old Party is becoming an anachronism in politics. In other words, out of touch with reality, misdirected about their correct historical or chronological time, like they belong to an earlier time..."
It's time their pictures are marked for political replacement.

The Drudge Report 
Huffington Post: House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) announced who will chair all of the major House committees in the next Congress. And it turns out they all have something in common besides party affiliation: they're all white men. There isn't a single woman or minority included in the mix of 19 House committee chairs announced Tuesday -- a stark reality for a party desperate to appeal to women and minorities after both groups overwhelmingly rejected Republicans just weeks ago in the presidential election.

Huffington Post Politics
"Disappointed to see House committee chairmanships in the 113th Congress will not include a single woman. -PM," tweeted Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.), who included a link to Boehner's press release announcing the chair posts.

A House Republican leadership aide declined to comment on the lack of diversity in the party's committee leadership. The aide noted, though, that GOP leaders just put four women in party leadership. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash) is the new House Republican Conference Chair, Rep. Lynn Jenkins (R-Kansas) is conference vice chair, Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-N.C.) is conference secretary, and Rep.-elect Ann Wagner (R-Mo.) will represent freshman members in party leadership.

In continuing to pretend the US election of President Barack Obama never happened, or that the Republicans lost ground during the election, the all white male leadership of the US House, by their own actions, volunteered to have their images on the walls of all Democratic political war rooms.  

It's certainly not too early to recruit excellent Democratic opponents to challenge these 2 year wonders, and replace them all in 2014.
