The Great White Party

"Well, you know, in a decade as Governor of Vermont, Howard Dean did not appoint a single minority, single African-American, to his administration. I mean that's not his problem. It's a 98.5% white state. But a guy in that position isn't perhaps the best man to go around bemoaning the lack of diversity. Today, for example, a Republican judge was confirmed, who's the daughter of Alabama sharecroppers. And we have to say, why, if the Democratic Party is supposedly so diverse, why is the Democratic Party leadership apparently homogenously white? I mean the Democratic Party looks like an antebellum plantation from 150 years ago. You got the big, white owner and the white family in the big house, and thousands of black workers in the fields. Whereas the Republican Party...where's the Democrats' answer to a figure like Condoleezza Rice?"
--Mark Steyn

It's amazing that the Democrats manage to fool anyone (even the "downtrodden", uneducated people at the bottom of the economic pyramid whose ignorance they exploit for votes).

Republicans who preen that they're the real party of "diversity" just demonstrate what suckers whites are for this hollow value. If, as the liberals insist, "race doesn't matter," who cares? Ah, but it does seem to matter --- enough for the conservatives and liberals to duke it out with each other about how enlightened they are. It's all a bunch of crap. Have you ever seen any other race or ethnic group worry that too many of its people are in power?
