I Watched the RNC Chair elections today...

Went from five, to three, and finally to two candidates, with Michael Steele being the eventual victor. It was textbook democracy in action, and a good man won. On my way home from work tonight, a smarmy, angry-sounding talking head reporter on the CBS top-of-the-hour radio news commented on how a "deeply divided" Republican party took six rounds of voting to elect Steele.

WTF--there were six candidates to begin with!

But here was this "reporter," with a smarmy "how dare the Republicans elect a black guy" attitude clearly present in his voice.

It appears that the only organization where conservative minorities need not apply is with the DNC.
