Warning, political post ahead, so those who have no interest in the political landscape, may want to look away now.
Is it mere coincidence that after a black Democrat gets into office, the Republican party votes a black man in as its leader?
I think not. I don’t believe in happy coincidences I’m afraid.
Although, to be fair, Michael Steel at least seems to understand that in order to move the party forward, they’ll have to reach out to the groups that the GOP have traditionally snubbed.
Not like that candidate who had to resign from a whites-only club, so that he could run in the first place. Oh the irony.
I guess the proof will be in the pudding, if the party ends up electing the anti-choice, anti-gays, gun-toting, moose-hunting, Sarah Palin, as their nominee to run for President the next time around. If this happens, then nothing will have changed.
I am surely hoping they do elect her though, because then Obama will definitely be a shoe-in for a second term.
It sure does seem that black is the new black, doesn’t it? *g*
