Maybe Harry Belafonte was more right than we all realize: the pampered and preferred house slaves are all in the GOP. The Democrats certainly treat their blacks like field hands--they're happy to work them hard, but don't want to see them loitering around the big house. How else explain that next Tuesday the Democrats will likely hold the Senate or even pick up a couple seats, almost exclusively because blacks vote the Democrat line at a 90% clip, yet given two sure thing Senate seats--in MN and NJ--and capable black candidates, the Party instead turned to two white guys in their 70s, leaving the Senate the most segregated public space in America?
Meanwhile, black Republicans are given those mere token spots on the United States Supreme Court and running America's foreign affairs. What suckers...
Ok, anyone out there think Colin Powell is "running America's foreign affairs?" Even the lurking right-wingers?
Moving on, can anyone come up with an opinion or decision by Clarence Thomas which indicates that the man deserves to be sitting on the Supreme Court? Some brilliant piece of prose or reasoning? Some deviation from the party line showing he wouldn't save time and trouble by showing Scalia how to forge his signature?
See, that's what I'd forgotten, what with not having 'net access and hanging out with intelligent, funny and all-around cool people.
That there are some impressively stupid, racially insensitive morons out there.
Clearly, not seeing Little Green Footballs for the past few days contributed greatly to this oversight on my part.
