Of all the morning-after fretting about the future of the Republican Party’s relevance in a majority-minority country, GOP strategist Chuck Warren’s comment was my favorite: “To be frank, we’re a ‘Mad Men’ party in a ‘Modern Family’ world.”

That’s a clever way to describe what many Republicans have said for a long time — there’s no way for the GOP to swim against the current demographic tide.

A similar day-after treat was Newt Gingrich preaching what’s been apparent to everyone, it seems, except party elders. He told The Wall Street Journal the GOP must connect with minority voters and “simply has to learn” to appear more inclusive to minorities — Hispanics in particular.

Amen, Newt, but with a caveat. “Appear” more inclusive? No, that’s nowhere near good enough. The Republican Party must be more inclusive, and it can’t make the mistake of courting Hispanics at the expense of other minorities.

Easier said than done, sure. But though the task isn’t easy, it is pretty simple. The Republicans need only stick to a simple trifecta of inclusiveness — just remember what all constituents desire from their leaders: To be “connected, respected and reflected.”
