If you listened to the Republicans and the MSM you’d think every year was the “Year of the Black Republican”, because according to them someday sometime soon the party of Willie Horton is going to have somebody (anybody) to parade around in elected office besides J.C. Watts.
Of course, dovetailing with the Republican attempts to invalidate or deny the votes of black Americans, the GOP couldn’t get the black vote if they were handing out free money. Black Americans are simply not going to reward the party of Katrina, sluggish employment growth, and Trent “I Wish The Segregationists Had Won” Lott with their votes.
That’s why you have the spectacle of Maryland’s Michael Steele shucking and jiving because while he likes the dollah dollah bills the GOP blesses him with, he knows that he’s dead in the water if anyone puts two and two together about his Republicanism. Hence the attempt at a (sloppy) extreme makeover.
In Ohio, Ken Blackwell – the handpicked candidate of the religious right crazies – is down 20 points to Ted Strickland.
If this trend keeps up, I’m asking the GOP for another “Year of the Black Republican” two years from now. We Democrats would really appreciate it.
