The More Things Change...

...the more they stay the same. Michael Steele has just been chosen as the new head of the Republican National Committee. Two thoughts: 1) Would this have happened if Barack Obama wasn't president? and 2) Do Republicans really think that they're going to start attracting black voters now? As we saw here in California, the anti-gay shit will help them on specific religious issues but I wouldn't count on anything more than that.

DLB, Steele is the non-racial, "post-racial" candidate the Republicans have come up with to counter Barack Obama. He'll relate to modern black folks and their concerns as well as every other national candidate the Republican party has anointed thus far. Translation: not at all, yo.
