This from Drudge:
“Congressman Bobby Rush: ‘This is a matter of national importance. There are no African Americans in the Senate, and I don’t think that anyone, any U.S. senator who’s sitting in the Senate right now, wanna go on record to DENY one African American from being seated in the U.S. Senate. I don’t think they want to go on record doing that’… ”
So we should allow someone to be selected for one of the most powerful positions in the world based on his skin color? How very jim crowe of you, Mr Rush.
